What is winning in court?  For a law enforcement professional, the answer is simple:  Being found to be credible, relevant, helpful, and persuasive.  Officers who routinely make life-and-death decisions on the street can become frustrated and anxious on the witness stand.  As with most areas of life, knowledge is power.  Being an effective witness is a learnable skill, and this training will teach you how to testify in a way that judges and juries find believable.  This training is surprisingly affordable for hosting agencies with support from surrounding jurisdictions.  

This training is being hosted by the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Department and is being offered on three different days February 1st, 8th and 15th.  For more information click HERE for the flyer.
