Jobs & Training - 57th Maine State Police Training Troop

Week 3

As week three began the recruits of the 57th began to realize that the training they have received and will continue to receive is going to be nothing but the best. The first half of the week the troop spent in the classroom. The Troop learned the in depth skill of interview and interrogating. A majority of the class was spent learning certain techniques to determine when someone is trying to be deceptive. Some key elements in detecting this are body language, eye contact and vocabulary. The middle of the week was spent learning how to safely maneuver a car in dangerous situations. Safe and precise driving is a very important aspect as a Trooper, and these two days taught the Troop how to become a better driver when responding to emergency situations, such as how to handle a cruiser in sharp turns. Learning how to maneuver a car through a small area and how to react to unexpected events where also taught. The final day of the week, the Troop learned about crowd control. The Troop spent the first hour in the classroom learning about different situations in which crowd control could be used. The second half of the class was spent practicing techniques used to disperse crowds, like defensive strikes and come alongs. The Troop practiced as one unit learning how to maneuver with small numbers while making a show of force.
