At-Scene Traffic Homicide Investigation

Free

with Hunter Martin

Calendar Mar 11, 2024 at 8 am, runs for 2 weeks

This course will arm you with the necessary skills to conduct a thorough traffic crash investigation and properly document your findings for courtroom presentation.

We will show you the proper procedures for measuring, scale diagramming and photographing in order to record physical evidence and essential facts available only at the crash scene. You will learn the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and engineering as they pertain to crash investigations and the proper mathematical equations to apply for the type of crash being investigated. Finally, you will learn to analyze the information to determine what happened before, during, and after the collision.

IPTM’s At-Scene Traffic Crash/Traffic Homicide Investigation will prepare you for a variety of advanced and specialty courses in traffic crash investigations.

Topics Include:

Physical evidence from the roadway

Physical evidence from the vehicle

Mathematical principles and equations

Skid marks and vehicle speeds

Nighttime photography

Measuring and scale diagramming (by hand and with Trimble Reveal)

Report writing

Advanced CJIS/TAC (Frankfort Campus)

Free

with Miranda Luttrell

Calendar Mar 25, 2024 at 8 am

This 3-day course is specifically designed for experienced LINK operators who want to learn advanced techniques related to all CJIS files. It also covers the basic duties and responsibilities of the Terminal Agency Coordinator (TAC). This course is open only to certified CJIS operators and is highly recommended for the TAC, Assistant TAC, and any operator who may be assigned TAC duties in the future.

The instructor: Miranda Luttrell is the Manager of the Post 15 Columbia radio room and is also an Adjunct Instructor for the Kentucky State Police Academy. She has been dispatching since 1999 and teaches several classes in the academy including CJIS/NCIC.

Commercial Vehicle Enforcement for the Telecommunicator (Scott County Scales)

Free

with Anthony Blakemore

Calendar Apr 11, 2024 at 9 am

This course is designed to educate Telecommunicators on the utilization and capabilities of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE) units. These units are trained to handle various situations that most Telecommunicators may not be aware of. The training will be conducted in two parts. The first part of the day includes classroom-based instruction, while the latter half of the day involves a visit to the Scott County weight station. During the visit, students will have the opportunity to witness an actual truck inspection, as well as tour the weight station facility. 

**We will meet at the Scott County Scales on I-75 North at 0900 for this class**

Traffic Crash Reconstruction - Level 2 - With Greg Russell

Free
Calendar Apr 15, 2024 at 8 am

Learn the latest theories and methodologies of crash reconstruction and expand your knowledge of the principles of collision analysis in this advanced course. We will explore topics that have previously received limited coverage, as well as many new ones. While the course can be thought of as “in-service” training for traffic crash reconstructionists, ACTAR candidates will also find it beneficial.

We will review the mathematical equations that are used in conjunction with crash data to interpret how a collision occurred. Emphasis will be placed upon skid characteristics, spin analysis, critical speed yaw analysis and friction. The concepts of time-distance, uniform circular motion, pole impacts, and conservation of linear momentum are just a few of the topics that will be covered.

As part of the course, you will be required to complete several in-class projects and a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary project designed to reinforce the class material.

Topics IncludeUsing geometry, trigonometry and selected mathematical topics as neededDynamics, kinematics, and Newton’s Laws of Motion as vector equationsDrag/acceleration factor testing and determinationCritical speed yaw analysisImportant differences between CSY and spin analysisTime-distance analysisPole and narrow object impactsApplications of conservation of linear momentumFundamentals of rollover crash reconstructionUniform projectile motion and airborne speed analysis

 

 

 

LEAP I

Free

with Justin Rundles

Calendar Apr 22, 2024 at 8 am

This class is a 40-hour block of the 2024 Kentucky State Police, agency-wide Law Enforcement Avoidance Position Program, with an emphasis on injury avoidance, while also controlling the suspect in high-stress situations. Emphasis on protecting the perpetrator as well as the officer through technique and confidence when in a physical altercation. This will be accomplished by learning, understanding, and demonstrating effective techniques as well as being able to not only articulate their actions but also justify them. Knowing the legality and having the confidence to execute the proper technique at the correct time.

Human Trafficking (Frankfort Academy)

Free

with Ricky Lynn

Calendar May 1, 2024 at 8 am

This course is specifically designed for Telecommunicators. It aims to provide them with a thorough understanding of the duties and responsibilities involved in handling human trafficking calls, as well as instructing them on how to document such calls. The course will also cover the various types of human trafficking and how to recognize the signs of trafficking during a phone interview with a caller. By the end of the course, students will be able to comprehend better and identify human trafficking cases and will know who to contact. The course will be held in Frankfort.

The Instructor: Ricky Lynn is a Detective with the Frankfort Police Department's SVU section. Detective Lynn was previously a Detective with the Lexington Metro Police Department for many years. He is currently the lead investigator on many human trafficking cases.
