K9-14: Criminal Interdiction Course

Tripwire’s criminal interdiction training in PA consists of a comprehensive 16-hour course specifically designed for patrol/K-9 officers. Criminal interdiction courses are offered by our Training Division, which has been providing explosives-related training for federal, state and local law enforcement agencies for nearly a decade. All our tactical K9 training courses are conducted by seasoned professionals who are dedicated to serving the needs of First Responders across the U.S.

Learn How to Interact With Your Canine

A highlight of our criminal interdiction course is teaching K-9 officers how to interact effectively with their dogs during interdiction. In this tactical K9 training course, you’ll learn how to use your dog to accurately identify drugs and other contraband, and also identify homemade explosive labs.

Our criminal interdiction training also explores the various safety procedures when investigating clandestine labs. Finally, as a part of this tactical K9 training course, you’ll review case law that will serve as an invaluable guide during the interdiction of contraband.

Developing and Establishing Reasonable Suspicion

Our criminal interdiction training courses take a close look at the concept of reasonable suspicion. You’ll learn about each of the key elements involved in developing reasonable suspicion, and you’ll discover the appropriate actions to take upon establishing that reasonable suspicion exists in a particular situation.

Conducting an Effective Roadside Interview

All patrol officers will benefit from the portion of our criminal interdiction course pertaining to conducting a roadside interview. You’ll learn how to “look beyond the ticket” to gain a more in-depth understanding of the situation at hand.

The course includes a practical, scenario-based training experience that can be applied to real-world interdiction situations. Other training courses we offer include explosives training, homeland security training, K-9 inert device training and much more.
