Finger Print and Vin

Fingerprint

Tue, May 30, 2017

8:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

Fingerprints offer an infallible means of personal identification. They are used for identification of a person, background checks for employment, documenting criminal records, creating investigative leads, and tying suspects to evidence or crime scenes.

This course is designed to train police officers to properly roll legible fingerprints. It also provides police officers with the necessary certification to obtain fingerprints from minors as required by statute. This certification is valid for three years. See Fingerprint Re-certification for recert processes.

This course has been designed by Vermont Criminal Information Center Identification Section and includes:

An overview of basic fingerprinting classification, the procedure of taking prints, officer safety while printing, how to properly fill out required fingerprint cards, and the life of a fingerprint card.

All students will practice rolling fingerprints under the supervision of trainers.

Rolling a quality set of fingerprint impressions and the successful completion of a written exam are required for certification.

 

VIN

Tue, May 30, 2017

12:30 PM – 4:30 PM

It has been said that the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the motor vehicle’s equivalent to the human’s DNA. The VIN’s 17 characters provide vehicle specifications such as where it was manufactured, in what year, the make, model, and body type. American motor vehicle manufacturers have been using VINs on their cars since 1954, but it was not required on all vehicles by NHTSA until the manufacturing of the 1981 model year.

Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (VT DMV) Inspectors instruct the VIN Verification Course. Participants who successfully complete this course will be certified by the VT DMV to verify VINs as required by the Agency of Transportation on certain documents.

The skills and knowledge developed in this class will also enhance an officer’s ability to detect stolen vehicles, cloned vehicles and vehicles with altered VINs.

Successful completion of a written examination at the conclusion of the course is required for certification.

This course will familiarize the student with the general aspects of coordinating a Traffic Enforcement Program within their agency.

Topics will include:

  •  Vermont Highway Safety issues and priorities
  •  Grant procurement and administration
  •  Crash data analysis and using it to justify your program
  •  State and National programs
  • Role of the traffic supervisor
  • DUI/Sobriety checkpoint law

An actual sobriety checkpoint will be set up at the end of the lesson so Department uniforms MUST be worn to this training.
