On February 12th, 2024, Deputy West, Deputy Smith and Deputy Clevenger all attended narcotic interdiction training in Overland Park, Kansas. This training, titled "Interdiction Academy" was put on by Street Cop Training, a company renowned for excellent narcotics training within the law enforcement community.

The following is an excerpt from Street Cop Training's website on the Interdiction Academy:

"This comprehensive course has been meticulously designed to cater to the specific needs and requirements of all Law Enforcement Officers, ensuring their professional growth and expertise in various domains. The course entails a well-structured curriculum that primarily focuses on crimes pertaining to the transportation of Narcotics, Illicit Currency, Weapons, and Human Smuggling. However, it goes beyond these specific areas and encompasses a wide range of investigative aspects related to policing. By participating in this course, students will gain invaluable knowledge and skills in utilizing highly advanced roadside interviewing skills, which serve as a powerful tool for deciphering and understanding human behaviors commonly exhibited by deceptive individuals. This efficient approach will empower the students to effectively handle encounters with potential violators, enabling them to accurately articulate and analyze their behaviors while ensuring compliance with legal procedures. Throughout the duration of the course, the students will engage in a comprehensive study of human behavior, engaging in meticulous video analysis exercises and gaining a deep understanding of the underlying motivations and reasons behind various actions."
