PRESENTATION FORMAT This will be a Basic Tracking course focused toward everyday Law Enforcement incidents that patrol officers routinely respond to each day. Professionally trained trackers are a specialized law enforcement resource. Patrol officers are first responders to most criminal incidents and have a need to know and manage the area and physical evidence relating to the incident. All patrol officers already have all of the equipment necessary to become a trained specialist in “seeing that which others look at and do not recognize.” This training course will incorporate hands-on field training to learn to “recognize and understand” the physical evidence of the presence or passage of persons. Training presentations will include the necessary understanding of the fundamental tracking principles to explain and demonstrate why others without this training do not see sign. Presenters will provide relating 1 case law and testimony that provides the basis for professionally trained tracker presentation of tracking evidence located, secured, preserved and presented in court. Students will learn to protect tracking incidents from other responder contamination; document tracking evidence and create comprehensive reports; articulate and present tracking evidence in mock court appearances. CLASS OBJECTIVES: To introduce patrol officers, criminal investigators and prosecutors to professional tracking expertise as an investigative resource for day to day law enforcement operations and crime scene investigations. The classroom presentation will include presentation and discussion of the most recent tracking evidence criminal case convictions. We will discuss using tracking evidence in examples of crime scene tracking examinations, fleeing suspects, “cold case” and other photographic forensic examinations. The field training instruction will provide students with one-on-one basic introduction to tracking fundamentals to ensure an understanding of sign as the physical evidence of the passage or presence of another person.
