On July 20 from 8 AM to 5 PM,
The First Responder Disability Awareness Training project at Niagara University is pleased to announce the Full Day In-Service program for Law Enforcement personnel in the State of Arizona. If you are a law enforcement professional who has an interest in educating yourself on how to properly respond to individuals with disabilities this training is for you. This is the nation’s only comprehensive disability awareness training for law enforcement. Developed with input from law enforcement from Virginia, South Dakota, Missouri and New York, this training both sensitizes and educates law enforcement on how to effectively identify, address, and respond to various disabilities they will encounter in their line of duty. Content includes, but is not limited to, disabilities defined specific to law enforcement, community resources, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Recognize-Identify-Approach-Interact-Response (RIAIR) model, victimization/abuse, etiquette/interaction skills, CIT interface, service animals, and person/identity first language. This is a FREE training. You must be able to attend the entire training. Attendees must connect via the internet on a computer, no call-in or phone attendance. This course has been determined to qualify for AZPOST continuing training credit.
