Credit Hours: 1.4

Prerequisite(s): None

Officers must be prepared to address many situations in the course of patrolling their assigned areas. This chapter provides an overview of law enforcement techniques and tactics employed in confronting large scale or critical incidents. One of the techniques used to maintain organization and complete response objectives is the Incident Command System (ICS). ICS is a standardized, on-scene, all-hazards approach to incident management that integrates the operation of facilities, equipment, personnel, procedures, and communications under a common organizational structure. There are many types of large-scale situations that an officer may encounter in relation to critical incidents. These include active shooters, natural disasters, hazardous materials exposure, explosive devices, and weapons of mass destruction.
