Ken Wallentine Chief, West Jordan Police Department Chair, Salt Lake Valley Officer-Involved Critical Incident Investigation Protocol Board

"We brought the CIR Enhanced Force Investigations & Cognitive Interviewing course to our area to strengthen the knowledge and skills of our Salt Lake Valley Officer-Involved Critical Incident Investigation Teams. The response was outstanding. Our already-skilled investigators gained deeper understanding of the cognitive interview technique, improved the comprehensiveness of our investigative scope, identified issues in applying human factors and confronting assumptions in the investigative process. Moreover, the teams learned together, under the direction of superb instructors, promoting an even more cohesive and effective team effort. I highly recommend this certification course."

Major Carlos D. Gonzalez Director of the Miami-Dade Public Safety Training Institute CEO of Blue Theory, LLC

Miami-Dade contacted CIR to bring the “Enhanced Force Investigations and Cognitive Interview Certification Course to our department, Jamie Borden and Paul Taylor proved to be credible and incredibly effective as instructors. The feedback was exceptional and the information has made a significant difference in our officers’ understanding of the subject matter. In my opinion, this should be a standardized course for law enforcement across the United States.

In my near 30-year career as a law enforcement officer, I have trained thousands of people from around the country and internationally. My experience has taught me that credibility and the ability to provide information in a relatable manner is invaluable in the process of teaching others. Naturally, it is important to me to work with and learn from others who possess both of these attributes.

Chief Scott Hughes Hamilton-Township, Ohio

Last week, C.I.R. taught “A Street Cop’s Perspective on Critical Force Dynamics and Human Factors” at my agency. Let me tell you…In my twenty-plus years in law enforcement, this was the most informative course that I have attended. In today’s environment, it is imperative that law enforcement officers – of all ranks – understand how the physiological and cognitive factors impact performance, perception, and behavior. This class should be mandatory training for EVERY police officer in America – especially if you are investigating use of force cases. I highly recommend this course, and I am looking forward to more training presented by Critical Incident Review!
