The Memphis Police Department is pleased to host a no-cost, one-day basic-level course on the T3 – Tact, Tactics, and Trust™ system. T3™ is a unique police training program that integrates tactical, social, and decision-making skills in a single, realistic context.  The T3 training and technical assistance program is offered through the Bureau of Justice Assistance VALOR Officer Safety and Wellness Initiative.  T3 provides law enforcement with evidence-based knowledge, tools, and skills to help better defuse and resolve tense situations with the least amount of force necessary. The T3 basic course introduces law enforcement officers to the core principles of T3, and teaches verbal, tactical, and cognitive skills essential to officer safety and mutual police-community trust. Officers who learn and practice core skills from T3 will have an enhanced capability to safely and effectively handle unpredictable and potentially dangerous interactions on the street.

Topics in the T3™ Basic Class:

  • Seven Core Principles of Tact, Tactics, and Trust™
  • Controlling the Deadly Mix of Serious and Lethal Attacks Against Police
  • “Graham-Plus:” Strengthening Your Legal “Body Armor”
  • Tactical Decision Exercises (TDEs)

  • “GIRing-In™” – How to Rapidly Assess and Engage Strangers
