Law Enforcement/Public Safety Training Schedule

PURPOSE OF TRAINING SCHEDULE AND CLASSES:

As an institution, we strive to provide training and support for the communities we serve. We value our partnerships and the support we receive from area law enforcement agencies. In an effort to continue those partnerships, and strengthen the knowledge and skill set of officers and other public safety officials, we have developed this training schedule. The Criminal Justice program at TCTC is Law Enforcement driven and recognizes the challenges agencies face in providing both basic and advanced training to their officers. It is our honor to assist you in this critical mission and hope you find the courses we offer or host to be of value to your agency and your communities. Our goal is to offer training at little to no cost for in-house courses. Outside vendors are free to charge as they deem appropriate for their courses.

CALENDAR ORIENTATION AND REGISTERING:

Each fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) the Criminal Justice Department will release a calendar which details monthly the classes being offered through our program and outside vendors.

PUBLIC AGENCY TRAINING COUNCIL (P.A.T.C.)

Recruiting, Hiring, Background Investigations, and Retention


DATES: 2/14/2023 through 2/15/2023

INSTRUCTOR(S): Tim Randall

LOCATION: TCTC- Easley Campus - 1774 Powdersville Rd., Easley, SC 29642

COURSE REGISTRATION FEE: $350.00 Includes all training materials and a Certificate of Completion.

The Recruiting, Hiring, and Officer Retention course is segmented into four distinct training modules. The recruiting module will train the hiring officer/personnel on how to attract the best talent pool with diversity in mind. Next, the hiring module will discuss how to effectively work with Human Resources in order to conduct testing and interviewing. The background investigation module will then teach the individual how to properly administer a background investigation on potential job candidates. The final training module is retention, after you hire the individual, the best methods to retain the talent will be detailed.

Recruiting
Recruiting with Diversity in mind
The goal of the recruiting component is to identify and attract talent from a diverse pool and to ensure that every candidate is treated fairly throughout the hiring process. Most recruiters focus on identifying and attracting talent for the organization. However, the recruiting manager must be equally concerned that once talented candidates are identified – especially diverse candidates – they have a rewarding experience in their interactions with the organization. They must ensure that the application and screening processes are bias-free and that hiring

Hiring
Define your process in a policy….Protect yourself!
Partners in the process: buy in from your city/county HR department and ask them to assist you! Proctor the process so that it is fair and unbiased. Review your plans with them. Treat HR as your ally, not the enemy. Community Involvement – if your agency has issues with the appearance of not being fair, ask your community leaders to become involved.

Retention
Many recruiting managers believe their job is complete when new diverse candidates are hired. However, when you consider that organizations often spend tens of thousands of dollars to hire a single candidate, retention can be essential to the financial bottom line. Therefore, it is important for the recruiting manager to ensure their organization has strong onboarding (orientation), mentoring, employee development, and career counseling processes. In addition, the manager should assess the need for employee support groups and recommend the creation of ones deemed necessary.

Background Investigations
Background investigators must be knowledgeable about all applicable local, state, and federal fair employment laws. They must be conversant in the legal requirements for appointment to the positions in question. They must heed all agency policies, practices, and operational limitations. They must base their inquiries and evaluations on candidate behaviors that have a direct relationship to the requirements and demands of the position, and they must do so with consistency and without bias. They must be able to articulate the information gathered from a wide variety of sources and how it is used in determining candidate suitability.

How do we treat a background investigation: Treat this process as you would any investigation, it is confidential, do not talk about this with anyone that does not have a need to know. Speak only to your supervisor or another investigator should you require advice or counsel on information developed.
