The Polly Klaas Case Study Lessons Learned
PDI Course Title: The Polly Klaas Case Study Lessons Learned
POST Name of Course: Kidnapping Investigative Responses
This course is taught by the actual investigator who lived this case for three years from the night of the abduction through the death penalty sentencing. The course will examine major investigative lessons learned through a detailed case study of the kidnapping and murder of twelve-year-old Polly Hannah Klaas. Using crime scene photographs, videos, and expert commentary by the lead case agent himself, students will be taken from the night of the abduction to the investigative conclusion, a grueling 24-hour a day major national-interest investigation lasting 65 days. Learn how patrol officers played a key role in solving this case. Learn best-practice investigative and interview take-aways that can be used in any case, from patrol officer initial investigations to tenured detective major case investigations.
The curriculum includes practical applications of the FBI recognized 75 best-practice major case response protocols using a scenario-based exercise, small group exercises, and class presentations. Students will review basic interview concepts essential during initial responses to any case investigation.
This is a CA POST Certified professional development course. Attendees successfully completing this course will receive 8 hours of POST CPT credit.
