Has anyone taken any training that wasn't geared toward campus policing, but afterward you found it to be very useful.  Or, anything that was geared toward campus policing that just really impressed you by its usefulness and you would recommend.

Wow, I was kind of expecting at least one recommendation.

CIT Training.....


Active shooter if you have not had it all ready. Even if you have had it get as much of it as you can. I can not think of anything as useful and important to a campus cop right now as Active Shooter training.


Dont know what your level of EMS training is but advancing that can always come in handy in a campus environment as well.

CIT is unofficially required for our department. Approximately 90% of our patrol officers have been through it.

We are required to active shooter training twice per year. We do a day on it during our annual inservice training, and we will have an optional (we usually have over 50% participate) simulated response training where we run through 2 or 3 scenarios with simunitions.

I have been trying to get into the First Responder (EMS) class, but they are few and far between so it has been difficult to get in.

I am planning on at some point in my career trying to push the department to require an Intermediate Certification for promotion, and require Advanced Traffic Law, Criminal Apprehension for Patrol, and ARIDE.
Currently my department is sending officers to almost as much training as we can possibly get. There are only 5 classes required for the Intermediate Certification so there really shouldn’t be a problem with the department asking people to mix one of these classes into their training every 6 months.

 I've taken a CIT and mental health officer course, an active shooter course and a couple juvenile justice / juvenile law courses throughout the years and they've helped. I've taken some psychology courses, including a human develoopment course, as part of earning my Associates Degree. Good luck finding what you're looking for.
