Duty to Intervene

We offer relevant, high-energy training that is designed to be relatable to every street officer. Our goal is to translate vital doctrines into language that officers can easily understand and apply in their daily work.

As law enforcement professionals, it is our duty to uphold the law not only in our interactions with the public but also within our own ranks. The law demands real-time intervention when a fellow officer strays from the path of justice and violates the law. Failing to intervene can have severe consequences, including termination, criminal charges, and civil rights lawsuits.

Our comprehensive Duty to Intervene course equips officers with the essential skills to prevent unnecessary use of force, enhance community trust, mitigate disciplinary issues, and intervene safely and effectively. This course is an absolute must for every law enforcement professional – your career and freedom depend on it.

By completing this course, officers will achieve the following outcomes:

– Prevent unnecessary use of force: Acquire the necessary tools and techniques to minimize the use of force, ensuring encounters are handled with utmost professionalism and restraint.

– Increase community trust: Demonstrating a commitment to accountability and intervention fosters trust with the communities we serve, strengthening the bond between law enforcement and citizens.

– Reduce disciplinary issues: Gain a deep understanding of the law and the potential consequences of inaction, reducing the likelihood of disciplinary issues arising due to negligence or failure to intervene.

– Empower officers to intervene effectively: Develop the confidence and skills to intervene in a manner that upholds the law, protects fellow officers, and ensures accountability.

Training Highlights:

1. Professionalism: Emphasize the professional expectations placed on law enforcement officers and the elevated standards that come with the role.

2. Understanding the Law: Delve into the legal aspects, particularly focusing on 1983 civil rights violations, to ensure officers are well-versed in the consequences of non-intervention.

3. Identifying Violations: Train officers to recognize violations of the law and other misconduct, enabling them to identify critical moments for intervention.

4. The Importance of Intervention: Highlight the significance of timely and appropriate intervention, emphasizing the benefits it brings not only to the community but also to fellow officers.

5. Effective Intervention Techniques: Provide practical strategies and techniques to intervene effectively with fellow officers and supervisors, ensuring a respectful and constructive approach.

6. Cultivating a Culture of Intervention: Foster a new culture that encourages and values intervention, emphasizing its role in safeguarding careers and preventing unnecessary lawsuits. Our training promotes consent-based intervention, rather than relying on scare tactics.

Our Duty to Intervene training goes beyond traditional instruction. It is a high-energy, interactive program enriched with engaging videos that reinforce the key teaching points. This dynamic approach ensures that officers remain fully engaged and actively participate in their learning experience.

Don’t wait another moment to fulfill your duty to yourself, your colleagues, and your community. Enroll in our Duty to Intervene course today and embrace the power of accountability, safety, and professional excellence.

If we are to police others, we must also police ourselves. The law requires real-time intervention when a fellow officer, from any agency, goes down the wrong path and violates the law. Failing to intervene may result in termination, criminal charges, and civil rights lawsuits.

I have personally attended in person courses and multiple on line classes and every time I learn something new. All the instructors have a passion for their job and a passion to empower and teach law enforcement officers. Their ability to teach, explain, and go in depth on the topics they cover goes far beyond any other classes I have attended. Blue to Gold has so many published books that individuals can order on line to progress their knowledge and ability to implement laws into their day to day application on the job. These courses, on line or in person, are must have for agencies all over country. Blue to Gold training has changed the way I operator in the field for the better. I would highly recommend their training to every officer or agency that I encounter. Blue to Golds footprint in law enforcement application should be rewarded in ways they never thought imaginable. Keep up the great work. They also offer search and seizure books for almost every state in the US if not all by now. Their Bullet Proof Report Writing book should be given out by agencies or police academy’s to every officer. Best training you will ever get.
