|Tactical Behavior Science Course — Coming to your region?
As written in our White Paper entitled Tactical Behavior Science Skills: Changing the Law Enforcement Landscape and Preventing Violent Encounters, we discussed some of the challenges that people in the public safety profession are facing. As leaders and supervisors, we have an obligation to our officers (and the citizens they serve) to provide proven training that can prepare them to meet the increasing conflicts and identify that violent behavior
that could otherwise threaten their safety, and the safety of those they protect. We must give them tools that are not fear-based, but are science based.
The National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy, in its continued pursuit of best practices, tailored solutions, and cutting-edge technologies that can enhance the safety and security of our waterways through the readiness of the professionals that patrol, protect and preserve our maritime domain, has identified the solution and would like to bring this critical training to your region. Would you like to host an 8-Hour Tactical Behavior Science class? The calendar will surely fill up quickly so email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org for details about hosting the next Tactical Behavior Science class in your region.
About the Course
In partnership with the National Law Enforcement Academy, Ellipsis Behavior Laboratories is the leading behavior science training company for the US Military and Law Enforcement. The Tactical Behavior Science Class is specifically designed to save Law Enforcement lives. The ability to read and influence human behavior at this level will give officers the ability to assess situations with greater clarity, improve community trust, and obtain compliance in difficult situations. The class is for law enforcement professionals, public safety professionals,
and security personnel at the local, county, state, federal, military and private sector organization levels and provides key insights that aren’t available in any other behavior program.
The 8-hour Tactical Behavior Science Course is divided into three main sections:
CORE BEHAVIOR SKILLS
Tactical body language analysis
VIOLENT BEHAVIOR RECOGNITION
Science-backed violent behavior signals
Breakthrough training methods to spot
Video analysis of violent-action cases
OODA loop and TFCA cycle
ENHANCED HUMAN COMPLIANCE

|NMLEA to address healthcare concerns of its members
In a recent Gallup Poll released just last week, 55 percent of Americans worry "a great deal" about the availability and affordability of healthcare. They are more concerned about healthcare than crime and violence, federal spending, availability of guns, drug use, and illegal immigration, to name but a few of the 14 other issues mentioned in the poll. (A link to the poll can be found here.)
"This concern about healthcare resonates with our members and the maritime public safety community we serve," commented Mark DuPont, the NMLEA's Executive Director. "And to address this need, we will be partnering with a network that provides a fast, modern, convenient, and affordable way to safeguard the health of you and your family," DuPont added. "The services offered through this program are currently used by more than 3,000,000 people, and our members, associates and friends we be able to join the network, starting next week."
So watch for our announcement in next week's newsletter, on our webpage and through our other media outlets!
As we all know, there are no "Safe Harbors" when it comes to avoiding or preventing the next cyberattack. To learn what nationally recognized experts discussed with maritime stakeholders about a proactive (vs. reactive) approach to Cyber Risk Management in order to prevent, prepare for and respond to the next attack that is inevitably on the horizon.

The U.S. and Mexican governments are sparring over immigration and trade, but the two countries are joining forces on the high seas like never before to go after drug smugglers.
The United States, Mexico and Colombia will target drug smugglers off South America’s Pacific coast in an operation that is scheduled to last for the foreseeable future, Coast Guard officials told The Associated Press.

Port control units trained under a U.S.-backed initiative to boost interdiction of illegal good in shipping containers intercepted 45.5 tons of cocaine in Latin America and the Caribbean last year, the UN said in a recently released annual summary report. The United Nations' Office on Drugs and Crime Container Control Programme offers training "to build capacity in countries seeking to improve risk management, supply chain security and trade facilitation in sea, land and airports in order to prevent the crossborder movement of illicit goods."

Thanks to its proximity to the Niagara River and the Erie Canal, the city of Tonawanda Police Department's marine division is in prime position to respond quickly to water emergencies with its $250,000 rescue boat. Only one thing prevents that from happening: easy access to the boat, which is kept at a nearby dock and brought to the police department when it is needed. But that awkward situation might be changing.

Maritime asks and Washington delivers funding for myriad maritime projects, newbuilds and infrastructure renewals. There is something for everyone in the FY '18 Omnibus.
An international boat theft ring has surfaced in the Tampa Bay, Florida area. Criminals are swiping boats in the dark of night and taking them to Mexico. In recent years, boat thieves have targeted Cannons Marina on Longboat Key. Agencies across southwest Florida are seeing new cases of boat thefts, so they're putting out a warning.

The New York State Senate recently unanimously passed Bryan Johnson's Law, sponsored by Sen. David Carlucci, D-Rockland/Westchester, which would allow judges to consider prior Boating While Intoxicated offenses when sentencing a person for Driving While Intoxicated.
The bill was named for Bryan Johnson, a 26-year-old from Ossining, who passed away in June of 2012. Johnson drowned in the waters off City Island in a boating prank gone wrong. Under the current law, Sen. Carlucci said judges do not have to consider BWI's when sentencing a person found guilty of a DWI offense.
The Tactical Wire
A downed threat must be watched constantly. All they have to do is wait for you to become distracted for a fraction of a second; this is their window to begin another attack. And this time they already know you're ready and willing to engage them, so there won’t be any hesitation on their part.
U.S. Coast Guard via DVIDS
The Coast Guard decommissioned its ninth High Endurance Cutter after nearly 50 years of service as part of recapitalization efforts during a ceremony at Coast Guard Base Honolulu. The Coast Guard Cutter Sherman is one of the Coast Guard's four remaining 378-foot High Endurance Cutters still in operation. The fleet of 378-foot High Endurance Cutters is being replaced by the National Security Cutters, which will soon serve as the Coast Guard's primary long-range asset.
U.S. and foreign law enforcement agencies will now have easier access to Americans' electronic communications after a new that was included in the federal spending bill. The Clarifying Overseas Use of Data Act, also known as the CLOUD Act, gives law enforcement access to "the contents of a wire or electronic communication and any record or other information" if those contents are stored in servers overseas, regardless of the privacy laws in that country.
The Crime Report
According to studies cited by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, between seven percent and 19 percent of police officers experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, compared to 3.5 percent of the general population. Some officers have found support and understanding from their families. And unlike the experience of their predecessors who were told to "toughen up," the dangers of persistent and high-level stress are winning some recognition today at senior levels of police departments and law enforcement organizations.
