Overview
This is an OSS Academy® Crime Scene Management online training course offered for Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

You are dispatched to a shots fired call at 2:00 a.m. You arrive at the scene and observe the lights are on at the residence, and the front door is open. You cautiously approach the open front door, and are able to observe a body lying on the floor in a pool of blood with what is obviously a fatal head wound. Your backup arrives, and together you search the residence and determine there is no one else present. Would you and your partner know how to safely clear the scene while being mindful of the need to preserve the evidence it contains? Would you know what you contaminated, disturbed or moved, and can you document it? Would you know how to establish a proper ingress/egress path for other responders to follow? This course will answer these and many more questions about managing a major crime scene resulting in the successful apprehension and prosecution of an offender.

Cultural Challenges Among Genders (TCOLE)

Price (Shown in U.S. Dollars)

Overview
This is a Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) elective Cultural Challenges Among Genders online training course offered for Texas Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

Men and women literally live in parallel, but different, worlds.
-Deborah Tannon

The movement toward more egalitarian relationships between men and women has had a major impact on our cultural patterns of behavior, even though our society’s patriarchal view still has tremendous influence on gender perceptions and roles. For example, most all cultures treat boys and girls differently from birth. Because of this cultural diversity, the different genders tend to have different experiences, expectations, worldviews, and interests.

Awareness of gender diversities can help us understand why men and women often see things differently, and avert possible miscommunications as a result of these natural and societal differences.

Please note, the entire course final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive one (1) hour of course credit.

Researchers refer to this as a generational cohort, defining these as a set of peers, rather than a specific family generation. People in a cohort share similar experiences, values, and attitudes. These carry over from the formative years to work-related issues.

This course will help you by explaining the dynamics of ethics in the law enforcement field, how to better understand the ethical dilemmas of fellow officers, and how to avoid ethical pitfalls yourself.
