Advanced Criminal Interdiction and Trapped Vehicle School

This three-day course was designed to use three key topics to expand upon what was learned in CJI’s Criminal Interdiction course. At the conclusion of this course, participants will have gained the appropriate skills needed to successfully interdict drugs in their jurisdictions. 

Advanced Roadside Interview Techniques: Participants will learn how to effectively communicate during a roadside interview in order to detect deception and other attempts to cover criminal activity. The students will have the opportunity to view, analyze, and discuss actual videos of traffic stops and roadside interviews that are relative to the discussion topics. 

Advanced Search Techniques and Current Trends: Through the use of videos and photographs, participants will study previous traffic stops made by the instructors in order to learn advanced search techniques and the current trends of drug traffickers. Participants will gain a working knowledge of search techniques by using high tech density meters, fiber optic scopes, upholstery tools, and wedges.

Currency and Asset Forfeiture: The dos and don’ts of currency and other asset seizures. The evaluation of every incident pertaining to currency seizures and the ethics surrounding whether or not it should be seized will be covered in depth.
