The Reserve Officer Training 2011 curriculum was developed from the performance objectives of the Montana Law Enforcement Academy’s (MLEA) Police Basic Training Course. Agencies in DCC’s 17-county service area were asked to review relevant performance objectives from the Basic course, and identify the types of training a reserve officer should receive. Those results were then compiled into a comprehensive training curriculum for a reserve officer that meets and/or exceeds the 88 hours of training required by Montana law. Review of the curriculum is continual and topics and material are updated every year as necessary.
This year topics include: Police Ethics and Professionalism, Communications Reports/Records, Administration of Criminal Law, Interviews and Interrogations Laws of Arrest, Crime Investigation, Crowd Control Tactics, Defensive Tactics, Police-Human-Community Relations, Criminal Evidence, Crisis Intervention, Juvenile Procedures, Patrol Procedures, First Aid and CPR, Criminal Law, and Firearms Training (Departments may conduct their own firearms training. Contact DCC for information on this option).
This is a 5-credit college course intended to instruct students in 88 hours of training for reserve police officers as required by the Montana Code Annotated. Primary contact for criminal justice training is Holly Dershem-Bruce at 800-821-8320 , (406) 377-9432  or email Holly .
The cost of training for non-DCC students is $300.00 with an additional fee if completing CPR and/or the Firearms portions of the training @ DCC.
