Law Enforcement Performance Courses

Work Place Wellness for LE Officers (2, 4, or 8 hr course)

Workplace Wellness for LE Officers Course is specifically designed for line officers who are out on the beat every day. Many officers are suffering from excessive stress and are ill-equipped to deal with it. Shift work, long hours, negative public perception and scrutiny, frustration with the criminal justice system, policing a growing noncompliant population, poor nutrition and lack of functional exercise contribute to quality of life issues for police officers. This affects their ability to efficiently perform their job and can lead to debilitating injuries, emotional issues and even suicide. This course emphasizes and addresses the officer’s ‘quality of life’. Officers will learn how to develop and maintain a balanced approach, using proven wellness techniques, to manage stress, and improve quality of life and job performance. Stress management, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle change are all addressed in this course. The emotional and financial cost to agencies and the quality of life issues for officers are serious. PKCO’s unique wellness philosophy and expert instruction in this course can help any department or agency give their officer’s the tools to manage stress in a healthy way.

TPPO (Tactical Police Performance Officer) Level 1 / Remediation for LE Officers (4 or 8 Hour Course)

The TPPO course was specifically designed for line officers who are out on the beat every day. Many officers are suffering from or will suffer from unnecessary pain, due to muscular and structural imbalances. This affects their ability to efficiently perform on the job tasks and eventually can lead to debilitating injuries during the performance of tactical maneuvers and every day LE tasks. This course will give those attending a better understanding of the injuries most commonly suffered in the LE profession, how to prevent the imbalances which can cause them, and minimize the risk of injury occurrence and/or re-occurrence, through PKCO drills/exercises taught in the course. The emphasis is on officer’s ‘quality of life’, ‘winning when it counts the most’ and ‘going home every night at the end of your shift’! This is one of PKCO’s most popular courses and we have received a 95+% favorable rating from all the thousands of officers who have attended this course.

TPPO Level 2/ Advanced Remediation for LE Officers (4 or 8 Hour Course)

The TPPO Level 2 course was specifically designed for LE officers who have previously attended the TPPO Level 1 Course. Many officers are suffering from or will suffer from unnecessary pain, due to muscular and structural imbalances. This affects their ability to efficiently perform on-the-job tasks and eventually can lead to debilitating injuries during the performance of tactical maneuvers and every day LE tasks. The TPPO Level 2 Course builds off of the foundational principles taught in the TPPO Level 1 Course and provides officers with advanced strategies to reduce structural imbalances and minimize the risk of injury occurrence and/or re-occurrence. Advanced drills and exercises to remediate these common structural imbalances will be taught.

 

In addition to introducing advanced drills to address the muscular and structural imbalances common to law enforcement, the TPPO Level 2 course also addresses movement. The muscular and structural imbalances common to LE Officers inhibit their ability to move efficiently and safely. Remediating these imbalances prepares the officer to be able to learn ‘how to move’. Most officers have never received instruction in the basics of moving efficiently. The TPPO Level 2 course introduces officers to the concepts of ‘moving efficiently’ in all aspects of their performance and teaches them drills and exercises to help them safely perform all LE functions that require movement. LE injuries are occurring during ‘movement’, from simply tripping over a curb/step, twisting a knee as you exit the squad car or moving during physical confrontations. Being able to move efficiently and safely will help officers reduce and/or minimize injuries as well as provide them the tools to help them during physical confrontations.


The emphasis is on officer’s ‘quality of life’, ‘winning when it counts the most’ and ‘going home every night at the end of your shift!’
