    Class will meet in our classroom (above)
    Enrollment Deadline: April 2, 2019
    Course Size: Minimum -15, Maximum - 64
    Course Objective

    The primary intent and foremost objective for the creation of this Law Enforcement Continuing Education training course is to provide a tool to assist Illinois law enforcement officers in responding to self-help repossession complaints.  Repossession Companies and repossession agents and all repossession activity is regulated by the Illinois Commerce Commission.

    The United States Supreme Court and numerous Appellate Courts have addressed the issue of law enforcement involvement in non-judicial (self-help) repossessions.  This issue is also addressed in the Federal Civil Rights Act.  This training course is meant to train Illinois law enforcement officers in responding to self-help repossession complaints in accordance with the Collateral Recovery Act and to ensure that the law enforcement officer does not provide assistance or even the suggestion of assistance to the licensed repossession agency employee who is in the process of a repossession.

    Course Content

    The following are some questions that will be asked and answered in this presentation:

    • Can you use a confession taken from a suspect who has been illegally arrested?
    •  Is there a 5th Amendment right to counsel during a lineup or prior to taking a breathalyzer examination?
    • When is a suspect “in custody” for purposes of Miranda?
    • Were the statements of the suspect mad voluntarily?
    • When is a suspect not entitled to counsel?
    • What happens when an attorney demands to see his client?
    • How do you deal with a juvenile who is being interrogated?
    • What happens when the police fail to promptly bring a suspect before a judge for a probably cause of hearing?
    • How long must you wait before re-interrogating a suspect after he has invoked his right to remain silent?
    • How do you overcome a suspect’s allegations that his statements were coerced by the police?

    Instructor Biography

    Edgework founder Ellis Amdur received his B.A. in Psychology from Yale University in 1974, and his M.A. in Psychology from Seattle University in 1990. He is both a National Certified Counselor and a State Certified Child Mental Health Specialist. Since the late 1960s, Ellis has trained in various martial arts systems, spending thirteen of these years studying in Japan. Since his return to the United States in 1988, Ellis has worked in the field of crisis intervention.

    He has written a number of books on the verbal de-escalation of aggression and communication with mentally ill persons. His new book, The Thin Blue Lifeline, co-written with Sgt. John Hutchings of the Olympia Washington Police Department, is due to be released in the Spring of 2011.

    Ellis is a dynamic public speaker and trainer who presents his work throughout the United States and internationally. He is an experienced and well-known instructor for police officers in the de-escalation of mentally ill and aggressive individuals. His specialty is boots-on-the-ground, face-to-face encounters with the individuals of concern. He is fully aware that police officers must establish and maintain safety. Therefore, Ellis focuses on the recognition of patterns of behavior, rather than diagnosis.  His goal is for street officers to recognize in the subject's behaviors — regardless of cause — patterns that he or she can work with to fully calm problem individuals. Failing that, these verbal tactics can aid in establishing control at whatever force level is required.

    For a number of years, Ellis has presented at the Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths as well as the Canadian Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths regarding how to distinguish between Excited Delirium and psychotic episodes. He offers specific verbal de-escalation/control strategies to deal with either of these states. In addition, he teaches basic and advanced CIT classes for police, and conducts specialized courses for tactical and hostage/crisis negotiation teams.

    Ellis Amdur is noted for his sometimes outrageous humor as well as his profound breadth of knowledge. His vivid descriptions of aggressive and mentally ill people and his true-to-life role playing of these behaviors give participants an almost first-hand experience of facing the real individuals in question

As a Detective, he was a member of the New York Drug Enforcement Task Force where he specialized in money laundering cartels and international drug trafficking organizations such as the Cali Columbian Drug Cartel.
