The Memphis Police Department iis pleased to host a no-cost, half-day executive/command-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 better defuse and resolve tense situations with the least amount of force necessary. T3 assists in protecting law enforcement and improving outcomes and relationships between officers and the communities they serve. The T3 executive/command level course introduces police leaders to the core principles of the T3 system, and demonstrates how T3 can help police agencies improve officer safety and effectiveness while simultaneously enhancing police-community trust.  The course emphasizes the essential role of police leaders in creating the wider organizational and cultural changes necessary to achieving and sustaining long-term changes in officers’ street-level decisions and actions.

Key Topics in the T3™ Executive/Command Class:

  • Seven Core Principles of Tact, Tactics, and Trust™
  • The essential role of leaders in ensuring the success of training
  • Outcomes-based training and “deal-breaker” traits
  • The essential role of decision-making in police training
  • Tactical Decision Exercises (TDEs)
  • Using T3 training to support your agency’s mission and values
  • How T3 training can be integrated into wider agency training and education initiatives
