Briefings: In-Person Training

NDCI and the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Assistance are proud to present Briefings, an in-person training curriculum designed by law enforcement, for law enforcement. This training provides law enforcement officers with key tools to build an agency-wide understanding of treatment courts and diversion programs, develop standard engagement protocols, and improve public safety outcomes.


Briefings: Patrol Essentials for Treatment courts is a one-day in-person training designed to address public safety's internal and external approach through law enforcement's role in treatment courts and the communityThe course enables law enforcement officers to identify standard operating procedures, recognize the importance of both the multidisciplinary approach and the implementation of community policing, along with the impact of secondary and vicarious trauma within the law enforcement community. It provides law enforcement professionals with tools to recognize and respond to individuals dealing with co-occurring disorders in a culturally effective, trauma-informed manner. Additionally, the curriculum provides tools for law enforcement professionals to understand secondary trauma's impact on officer wellness. This training is an opportunity for law enforcement, probation, and treatment to build a collaborative working relationship which improves program outcomes and enhance law enforcement's interactions in the community.

Briefings is designed for sworn police, highway patrol, and tribal officers whose primary job function is prevention, detection, or investigation of any violation of criminal law and are authorized to carry firearms and make arrests for violations of the law. 

Note: Although probation and parole officers in many jurisdictions may possess some of these authorizations, for this training, the content will focus on law enforcement officers as defined above. But, because of the collaborative nature of effective working relationships in the multidisciplinary treatment court team between law enforcement, probation/supervision officers and treatment providers, any of the above may attend the training alongside law enforcement.


NDCI's Briefings curriculum is supported by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.
