Who Moved My Cheese?: Coping with Unexpected Change- 8 hours STC and presented by Jon F. Morse, Sr., JM Consulting 
Summary: The course focuses on understanding the reasons human beings make the decisions they make related to the changes that are taking place in the working environment and how they deal with those changes. By learning the patterns of change, officers will be able to be proactive in making more effective choices before change is thrust upon them. This will eliminate stress which many times cause individuals to look for ways to escape which leads to staff turnover and/or ill health.

Principled Policing - 8 hours STC
Presented by CDCR, DAPO -

Summary: This training is a partnership among the Commission on Correctional Peace Officer Standards and Training (CPOST), the California Department of Justice (DOJ), the Oakland Police Department, the Stockton Police Department, the Stanford SPARQ (Social Psychological Answers to Real‐World Questions), and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).


Principled policing, specifically procedural justice and implicit bias, teaches policing approaches that emphasize respect, listening, neutrality, and trust (procedural justice) while also addressing the common implicit biases that can be barriers to these approaches (implicit bias). Law enforcement can improve trust and relationships between law enforcement agencies and their communities by using these principles to evaluate their policies, procedures, and training within their departments.
