Of all police field operations that deter and thwart crime, resulting in the apprehension of criminals, the investigative detention is, by far, the most commonplace. After all, detentions occur at all hours of the day and night, and in virtually every imaginable public place, including streets, sidewalks, parks, parking lots, schools, shopping malls, and international airports. The outcome of detentions will vary. Some result in arrests. Some provide investigators with useful - often vital - information. Some are fruitless. All are dangerous. To help reduce the danger, and to confirm or dispel their suspicions, officers may do a variety of things. This course will provide officers with some basic information on the best practices, techniques, and other pertinent information, in order to assist with legal investigative detentions.
