Searching the Marketplace

Courses in the FirstForward Marketplace may be found by entering simple keywords. These search terms are used to match against course titles, course descriptions, topic areas, class locations, and the name of the vendor providing the training.

You may further refine the keyword search by including special commands:

  • To match the beginning and end of a word, include * in the middle of a keyword as wildcard (e.g., crim*s)
  • To match a specific phrase, add double quotes (e.g., "in the field")
  • To require words, add + before the word or phrase (e.g., +enforcement)
  • To exclude words, add - before the word or phrase (e.g., -structure)

Except when an exact match is required, the Marketplace search will attempt to match similar words, including partial matches and some misspellings.

Course Information

Drug-related overdose cases are increasing at an alarming rate across the United States. From the heroin epidemic to the fentanyl crisis, communities are experiencing the deadly effects of illicit drugs. Unfortunately, criminals that often supply the drugs that cause the overdoses, often evade prosecution. One of the primary challenges for law enforcement officers assigned to conduct overdose death investigations is the lack of cooperation from witnesses and/or the victim if he or she is not deceased. As a result, the cases are rarely prosecuted. This two-day training course is designed to equip law enforcement officers with the tools necessary to successfully conduct and prosecute any drug-related overdose cases. This course will go into details on the following topics:
- Opioid Crisis
- Primary Drugs Causing Overdoses
- Federal Drug Conspiracy Laws
- Toxicology Overview
- Processing/Securing the Crime Scene
- Challenges/Interviews/Lack of Cooperation
- Proactive Investigations
