The P.R.O.M.P.T. has the great objective of focusing its efforts on the aspects that are defined as the “police fundamentals”. Each student will have the opportunity to experiment, analyze and learn the necessary tools that are crucial to perform their operational functions in the best possible way.
Institutions sometimes differ in the ways and techniques of operation, all of them based on extremely useful experiential and statistical foundations, in this case, in addition to “refreshing” and analyzing the different techniques, we want to focus on the fundamental operational responses, in the Mind. – asset of each officer in such a way that he has the possibility, following the training given, to learn the concept of “Do It Right”. This means that the student himself must face himself and be able to manage situations of high level of stress and pressure, understanding what is the most correct way to achieve the objective he wishes to achieve. In a scenario like this, the instructors take a different figure, rather than “instructing” the operators, we identify ourselves more as “facilitators” and the scenarios (the real heart of the activity) are used by the participants to confront themselves, with the way it has been done up to that point and replace it with better actions.
Before being a specialist, a police officer is, above all, a police officer and as such must be capable of acting.
Police activity is very complex and articulated, where actions are usually in rapid succession and where each operator must act with maximum speed and millimeter precision. Every agent has the duty to guarantee the law and the security of the citizenry, as well as the right to be able to return home safely. The police response must, therefore, incorporate aspects related to the protection of citizens and the law, through continuous and constant training and with a high level of security and focus, so as to minimize the percentage of injuries or homicides of the operators.
The loss of focus, of the level of attention can represent the real danger for situations of daily operation for any operator. Training and updating constant, linked to the fundamental work on Active-Mind, are the key to making the response and operational management work.
Managing the situations that each operator will encounter in their operational life, allows them to assess risk situations, apparent and non-apparent, and decide in a few moments the best action to take. Every technique, no matter how effective it is, any equipment, no matter how sophisticated it may be, and every technological device, no matter how advanced, is useless if we do not have “mentally” trained operators to live, concentrate, manage and solve everyday situations.
The concept of “no routine interventions” is our main objective. Every intervention and even the mere fact of being on the street is, in itself, a high risk factor to be taken into account and managed correctly. When a police officer carries out his important work, many times he will have to deal with the total unpredictability of the situations for which he will be called to intervene, as well as the situations that could happen simply by “being there in that particular place”.
The concept of patrol is seen in a much broader way and is not limited only to those who “perform” patrol service. Each agent is, by the sole concept of representing that institution, a subject at risk and potentially an object of violence and aggression. This concept, linked to the mind-asset, is a fundamental factor to understand the concept according to which all policemen are constantly on patrol. Therefore, you must maintain that adequate mental operational response of fundamental importance.
