OVERVIEW: Field Support Training (FST) is on-site consultation and advice, regularly, over an extended but fixed period of time. It is intended to get you up-and-running quickly with RTM, RTMDx and/or Risk-Based Policing. FST is tailored to your jurisdiction and agency needs.
DETAILS: Field Support Training (FST) gets your agency up-and-running quickly and effectively following the initial adoption of RTMDx for crime prevention and risk governance. FST is a temporary period of instructor-trainee collaboration whereby a RCPS Field Training Instructor works in partnership with one or more local representatives of your agency to advise and consult on the techniques and applications of RTMDx and Risk Terrain Modeling (e.g. Risk-Based Policing). The Instructor demonstrates ‘best practices’ by example and works closely with the local representatives to communicate analytical results in actionable ways, to facilitate taskforce meetings following the ACTION agenda, and to develop multi-stakeholder strategies for crime prevention and risk reduction. The Field Training Instructor assumes most of the analytical and presentation responsibilities early on while teaching local representatives the skills and tasks required to do so. Throughout the FST period, the Instructor assumes fewer responsibilities while local representatives assume more. The goal is sustainability; agencies will learn how to continue on their own with RTM and a risk governance framework that can progress well after the FST concludes. Agency representatives are eligible for RTM Certification.
