This training is designed to enhance the skills, knowledge, abilities, and well-being of attendees by providing instruction on federal laws, investigative tools, new crime trends, and officer resiliency.

Trainers will include professionals from the U.S. Attorney's Office-MDAL, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Montgomery County DA's Office, the United States Secret Service, and the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT).

Topics will include the following*:

Federal Firearms Offenses (PSN/ICE)
PSN is a nation-wide commitment to reduce gun crime by providing charging and prosecutorial tools to address repeat violent offenders. The local version of the PSN program is called Isolate the Criminal Element, or ICE. Attendees will be provided with an overview of the ICE initiative and will explain the federal laws concerning felons in possession of firearms, the use of a firearm in a crime of violence or drug trafficking, and the possession of firearms by an individual subject to a qualifying protection order. There will also be a brief overview of related state charges and how they differ from federal law.

Comprehensive Gun Crime Investigations, including Firearms Tracing & Forensics
Crimes are often solved by law enforcement following up on intelligence information from ballistic imaging technology or gun traces. ATF will include training on the use of gun tracing programs such as the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) and eTrace. They will also provide tips and best practices on investigating gun crimes and building cases for federal prosecution.

USAO-MDAL & Federal Case Law Update
An update on significant cases from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Alabama, as well as recent federal appellate cases that affect law enforcement and prosecutors.

Gas Pump/ATM Skimmers
An introduction to the trend of criminals placing skimmers on gas pumps and ATMs, or using handheld devices, to collect card numbers. The presentation will include ways to identify a skimmer device and what to do if one is discovered. Examples of skimmer devices will be a part of the presentation, as will other indicia of this type of criminal activity.

Officer Stress & Family Survival
A career in law enforcement is stressful and maintaining officer resiliency is essential. Stress that is continuous or builds up over time and is not managed effectively can have serious consequences to the health and overall quality of life for officers. This presentation will discuss various stressors and ways of dealing with them. (*topics are subject to change depending on instructor availability)
