Course Information



This POST Institute of Criminal Investigation (ICI) scenario-based training course is designed for experienced detectives who are assigned to investigate law enforcement involved critical incidents including officer-involved shootings, use of force incidents and in custody deaths.

Topics covered throughout this course include understanding stakeholders, lawful and unlawful force, physiological and psychological changes (human factors), administrative and criminal investigations, legal considerations and courtroom testimony, crime scene reconstruction, video forensics, taser incidents, excited delirium related deaths and contemporary critical incident case studies.

College Application Process

College Application Process

This program is presented through the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium of Community Colleges (SBRPSTC), which includes Gavilan College, Monterey Peninsula College, Ohlone College, Hartnell College, Lake Tahoe Community College, College of San Mateo, and Cabrillo College.

Only courses and programs presented for college credit will be funded, transcripted and certified through one of the above accredited institutions.

Funds generated through this process offset the costs of each course, thereby reducing student fees for the student/agency and allowing us to present more courses. Consequently, we require all students taking one of our college-based courses to apply to the designated college using OpenCCC, the online college application system by which the majority of community colleges collects registration and transcription information.

Students will receive reservation confirmation and class information along with college application instructions approximately 45 days before the class starts. If applicable, students will also be required to complete the college application process and submit a South Bay Registration Form, to include the OpenCCC and applicable College ID numbers no later than 30 days before the class start date.*Additional fees will apply to Non-College Registered Students. Contact our main office at (408) 229-4299 for specific amounts.
