The Saint Paul Police Professional Development Institute (PDI) is co-sponsoring with Lifeline/Calibre Press Training the Advanced Criminal Patrol Tactics course.



Instructed by Chief Edward Delmore, this fast paced eight-hour course is intended for patrol officers and supervisors who want to become more effective in detecting and arresting criminals operating motor vehicles. Including drug traffickers, fugitives, felons, and gang members; the training focuses on objective criteria for criminal interdiction and not on so-called “profiling” techniques. This program has been approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the United States Department of Justice.

The course includes but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Criminal Patrol Procedures
  • Officer Safety
  • Roadside Interviews
  • Detecting Deception
  • Consent Searches
  • Salvaging Turn-Downs
  • Arrest Tactics
  • Contact and Cover
  • Informant Development
  • Controlled Deliveries

The FLETC's Office of State and Local Training (OSL) provided training to 336 state, local, campus and tribal law enforcement officers February 15-17 in Gulf Shores, Alabama. This symposium had one of the largest number of attendees at any one FLETC training program.

The Gulf Shores (AL) Police Department and Orange Beach (AL) Police Department hosted the State and Local Law Enforcement Training Symposium (SLLETS), which included training workshops and officer safety general sessions. The attendees represented 15 states and 156 different agencies. Some of the topics included roadside interdiction, human trafficking, domestic violence, concealed weapons, use of force, terrorism activity, tactical fitness and leadership adaptive behavior.

"This was a very well delivered program and the staff did an outstanding job. All of the presenters were great and consummate professionals,” said a student at the SLLETS. “This is a great program that brings much needed training to the persons who need them most."

A testimonial to the relevancy of the training was sent to the FLETC from Slidell (La.) Police Department Officer Michael Giardina. According to Giardina, who attended the Roadside Interview and Interdiction class, he recovered "ten ecstasy pills and a 9mm handgun taken off a subject, stopped not thirty minutes into (his) first shift back on the road after (the) class."

"One of the first signs I noticed was that he slowed down when I conducted the traffic stop, but kept going for a little over a block. Later, I found out that the subject had the handgun on his lap when he was slowing and contemplating whether he should confront me with it, but decided to place it on the floor instead since his niece was in the vehicle."

OSL offers these highly requested, multiple-topic training symposiums several times each year at different locations across America. The next program is planned to be held in Traverse City, Michigan, August 9-11.
