Tampa Bay Area Chiefs of Police Foundation Gala
President George Lofton, Senior Vice President Markus Hughes, and Executive Director Michael I. Krohn, Esq. recently attended the Tampa Bay Area Chiefs of Police Foundation Gala and donated a sponsorship of $5,000 on behalf of the members of the Sun Coast PBA.
This donation will sponsor one law enforcement officer within an agency that is a part of the Sun Coast PBA to receive advanced training in Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview (FETI) techniques. FETI techniques can help law enforcement conduct more productive interviews with victims of violent crimes, potentially leading to more arrests and convictions.
FETI protocols and training was devised as a tool to fight sexual violence. The discipline is based on the fact that when people suffer a traumatic event, the prefrontal cortex of the brain tends to shut down, causing them to process information and memories differently than it did prior to the trauma. As a result, standard investigative questioning is not always revealing with regard to key facts investigators need, such as a description of the attacker, the surroundings during the attack and even what led to the attack.
