“Surviving the First Three Seconds” is a program currently being offered to law enforcement agencies nationwide and is led by a trooper from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

The presentation takes a close look at why our nation’s law enforcement professionals are being assaulted and killed feloniously and accidentally, and is aimed to educate officers on preventative measures.

“This particular program was initially developed in Maryland by law enforcement agencies in that state,” said North Carolina Trooper Kurt Hensley from McDowell County.

As its chief instructor, Trooper Hensley has traveled in all 50 states presenting this program to law enforcement officers.

“We know the program is working. For instance, in one North Carolina metropolitan area gun seizures rose over 90 percent after law enforcement officers from that area viewed this presentation,” Hensley said.

The program will be offered at Tri-County Community College in two phases.

Surviving the First Three Seconds – Phase One: The program is designed to take the reactionary gap off of the law enforcement officer and put it back onto the suspect. This is done through a five-step program that focuses on identifying armed individuals through body language indicators; identifying armed individuals through clothing indicators; street level interrogation skills, street level lie detection skills; and identifying assaultive indicators through body language and verbal indicators. Main Campus. 8 hrs. Pre-registration by May 31, 2017 is required. Lunch provided.

Instructors: Dale and Reynolds Min: 10
June 13 T 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
$70 plus $10 mandatory meeting fee for each attendee

Surviving the First Three Seconds – Phase Two Advanced: This class designed to take the reactionary gap off of the officer and to place it back onto the suspect. This is accomplished through a five prong system. Body language indicators to armed suspects, clothing indicators to armed suspects, body language and verbal pre assaultive indicators, street level interview skills, and street level lie detection skills. The hope is that when you apply all five aspects of surviving the first three seconds the officer will be able to stay safer through better communication skills while being able to recognize and access threats quicker. This class size is limited to 16 students. Main Campus. 16 hrs. Pre-registration by May 31, 2017 is required.
