The MA-VLEOA is sponsoring a day of training consisting of three modules of training. 

Traffic Incident Management training was developed for the Federal Highway Administration and is designed to teach national best practices for traffic scene management and to encourage cooperation by the multiple agencies that may respond to an emergency.  

The 4-hour Traffic Incident Management Training Program was built by responders for responders to help achieve three objectives:

  •        Responder Safety
  •        Safe, Quick Clearance
  •        Prompt, Reliable, Interoperable Communication

Any incident, including vehicle breakdowns, vehicular fires, collisions, or medical emergencies can cause serious delays, backups and slowdowns with congestion that creates the potential for secondary accidents.  It is important that traffic management be implemented to direct motorists and help response crews act as effectively as possible.  The Massachusetts Traffic Incident Management Program was established to provide a unified effort to plan and coordinate the process of detecting, responding to, and removing traffic incidents in order to safely and quickly restore traffic capacity.

Traffic incident response can involve many disparate agencies with valid functions but often conflicting priorities at the scene.  The formalized TIMs Program facilitates the interagency coordination necessary to ensure each agency is able to achieve their goal as part of a larger response effort.

This course will be delivered by the same agency that trains for the MA state police, MPTC, etc. and qualifies for four hours of continuing education.

Auxiliary/Reserve Officers and Stress Management - Tools for a Successful Career: We are in challenging times where the role of a police officer is under tremendous scrutiny and pressure. Officers often find themselves in the midst of the civic divides that exist in our country. Safety concerns have also heightened with increasing officer-involved shootings and officers being shot. Combined with the increases in responsibilities placed on our officers, whether full-time or part-time, and it is easy to see the need for a solid stress management plan to stay physically and psychologically healthy and in the game.

This presentation will provide an overview of stress in the law enforcement community including but not limited to: what is stress?; the potential psychological and physiological impact of the work; the impact on your family; tools to help mitigate these impacts; and resources available. Case examples will be used to highlight educational points.

Psychological Impact of Terrorism: What the Auxiliary / Reserve Officer Should Know: The psychological impact of terrorism can have far reaching impact on both the civilian and law enforcement communities. Prior to the events of 9/11, many people including those in law enforcement, did not consider terrorism to be a major threat on U.S. soil despite previous terrorist incidents that occurred here. Post 9/11 awareness of the potential threats in terms of both frequency and source have become a major focus for many in the law enforcement and other first responder communities. While much has been done to identify and tactically combat these threats, less has been done in terms of dealing with the psychological impact.

This presentation will provide an overview of terrorism. Topics include, but are not limited to: Defining Terrorism; understanding Threat Potentials; Radicalization of a terrorist; terrorism’s impact on the civilian populations (including children) and the law enforcement community; and tools to deal with the psychological impact of these events. Case examples will be used to highlight educational points.
