Supervising Patrol Critical Incidents

Supervising Patrol Critical Incidents

Everything taught and discussed was very relevant to a patrol supervisor’s role in critical incidents. Thank you for advancing my knowledge base. I know this seminar will make me a better, stronger, and definitely a more prepared supervisor.

I thought the scenarios and discussions were great. It was very beneficial to discuss thoroughly the proper responses to situations and what can be learned from the incidents discussed. The instructor was well spoken and articulate, and the presentation from his experiences was very beneficial.

Instructor: Travis Norton

Thank you for presenting such a great class! The information was presented in the perfect way for fellow officers/supervisors.The information provided was also very engaging and thought provoking. Your attitude towards the material, your officers, and the job is inspiring. Sometimes we allow “the job” to take us off our path of making a difference and providing a safer/better job for our officers. Shame on me. It takes vigilant leaders such as you to nudge us back to where we used to be and ignite the fire once again. I applaud you for it.

Excellent course, instructed by a qualified person who was able to get students to look outside of the box when responding to various incidents and formulate plans for handling multiple outcomes.

Supervising Patrol Critical Incidents

This class was a good reminder of some basic information/some new ideas/fresh way of looking at age old police issues with the new era of societal restraints. The instructor was knowledgeable, consistent, energized, passionate and approachable. Provided relevant information without it being “story time.” I gained a lot of insight, new reading material ideas and re-energized passion about safety, leadership and caring for personnel.

I recently attended NTOA’s two-day Supervising Patrol Critical Incidents class instructed by Sgt. Fred Farris. The class was very beneficial and in all honesty one of the best training I have been to. I have let others know that when this class and instructor come around again next year, they need to go!

The instructor, Josh Patterson, did a great job! He was engaging and personable. The course was structured well, building upon itself from day one through day two. The course did provide great reinforcement and made me Monday morning quarterback some of the ways both my sheriff’s office and myself have handled situations in the past. The scenarios were well thought out as well. Probably most important, this training forced critical thinking for newer supervisors who may not have been in a patrol leadership position in the past.

All around an excellent course and an excellent instructor. I strongly recommend this training for all new supervisors, especially those who are new to night shifts where they will be the one taking the lead!

I just wanted to say again how much I enjoyed attending the Supervising Patrol Critical Incidents class in Sarasota, Florida.

The instructor, Travis Norton, did a great job with the topic and it was the best LEO class I have taken in 12 years!
