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

This is no ordinary search and seizure class. Join instructor, author, officer, and search and seizure expert Don McCrea as he leads attendees to a clear understanding of an officer’s authority during vehicle stops and warrantless searches of vehicles and vehicle occupants.

There is a huge difference between thinking you know your authority and knowing your authority! Citizens are challenging the authority of officers and holding law enforcement accountable as never before. In our profession, “not being sure” during a tense street encounter or a traffic stop is not an option. Since there are far more legal issues involved with vehicle stops and searches than even many veteran officers realize, it is imperative that officers clearly understand their lawful authority and perform their duties with confidence.

Don will provide definitive answers to the questions you have. Come prepared to get involved in this course presented by a passionate and knowledgeable instructor. Content is backed by case law.

All course materials are provided by Premier Police Training. Minimum class size may be reduced depending on proximity to South Dakota.
