Course Description:
This newly expanded 2-day course details the most under-trained and critically necessary skill you must have in public service; the ability to "tell what happened". This course is designed for everyone whose duties require a detailed account of events, identification of what lead you to reasonable suspicion or probable cause, and how to effectively convey in writing, and verbally, what actually occurred. Using practical report writing exercises and a moot court, students learn to effectively communicate in writing before providing verbal testimony. Don't just tell them it happened; tell them what happened, how it happened and why it happened. This course challenges the novice and advanced alike. Don't miss your opportunity!

Who Should Attend: Patrol Officers, Jail/Prison Officers, Detectives, Agents, Arson Investigators,

Instructors: Your instructor, Nick Ramos, a retired Sergeant and K-9 handler from the New Mexico State Police, brings a wealth of experience gained from over 25 years in law enforcement. As a Officer, he handled hundreds of cases from the small, go-nowhere case, to the large Transnational Criminal Organizational that spanned multiple states and lasted years. As a first-line supervisor he expanded his knowledge by learning to teach his subordinates to appropriately write, review, and submit proper reports and now he brings these skills to you. Nick received many awards including New Mexico's 2010 Officer of the Year and was touted as, "a bloodhound for narcotics" by the U.S. Attorney's office in 2011. Nick continues his work as a Deputy for the Bernalillo county Sheriff's Office. He is an energetic presenter and presents for several large organizations including: HIDTA, INIA, BJA, Sheriff's & Chiefs of Police, CNOA, and CNCA. You are sure to have an enjoyable experience with Nick.
