I completed the basic Bailiff training and I have to say I learned a great deal. Your course is easy to follow and informative, but not a lay down if you don’t work at it. That’s what I wanted. I’m suggesting it to all my officers who may not have time to attend the class and to all other agencies in my part of Texas. Good work!

Thank You. I have taken two Court Security classes in the past 6 years: one 5-day course with Mr. Randy Harris and another … and I must say that this online course (developed by Mr. Harris) is VERY in-depth and VERY important for any Law Enforcement Officer/Bailiff that works in and around a courthouse.

Outstanding and long overdue course of instruction. Great visual aids and commentary by Mr. Harris. I hope to see more courses like this one.

Overview

This is an OSS Academy® Juveniles in Custody online training course offered for Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

The issue of arresting juveniles, and taking them into custody, has been a problem since the late 1700’s. The overriding question for many jurisdictions is what to do with the wide variety of violators that are so different from other offenders. Correctional experts agree that juveniles should be housed separately from adult offenders, however, disagreement abounds. How should enforcement officers manage a group of offenders with violations that range from mere truancy to mass-murderers? This course canvases the history of the juvenile justice system, and discusses factors contributing to juvenile delinquency, as well as the law enforcement perspective on management of juveniles.

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.

Overview

This is an OSS Academy® Social Media for Law Enforcement online training course offered for Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

Social media inundates every aspect of our lives these days. With the development of websites such as facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and Reddit there has been a dramatic shift in the way information is disseminated and shared with the masses. There remains much debate as to the validity of this shared information and its sources, but there is little debate that more and more people are choosing to share personal intimate information about their lives with the rest of the world. Such a sharp adjustment in the public’s willingness to share these private details offers up many additional investigative tools. At the same time, there is an alarming trend of enforcement officers using social networking to their personal and agency’s detriment. This is particularly alarming when we find officers loosing their jobs, and even going to jail for their actions.

This course provides details on some of the most popular social media sites, and your freedom of speech rights. It offers specific warnings on ways to protect yourself, and provides guidance with respect to policy development on this critical issue.

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.
