NR03081

The University of Maine at Fort Kent will be hosting a satellite broadcast session entitled "Concealed Weapons: The Hidden Danger" on Thursday, May 15, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in the Nadeau Hall Teleconference Room.

The broadcast is sponsored by the Multijurisdictional Counter Drug Task Force Training (MCTFT) program at St. Petersburg Junior College and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC).

The primary target audience for this program includes law enforcement officers, especially the small town and rural police departments, and other interested parties.

The program's objective is to educate and inform the law enforcement community and other viewers about the hidden danger during roadside traffic stops for drugs and weapons.

Participants will learn about the most commonly transported or used weapons and drugs, and hear a discussion on the hidden dangers of roadside traffic stops. The program will offer proactive strategies on how to handle such situations.

This broadcast is the fourth in a six part series entitled "The Drug Enforcement at the Crossroads of America Series: Encouraging Officer Safety".

There are two remaining programs in this series; part five "Concealed Laboratories- First Response" will take place on Thursday, July 17 and part six "Narcotics Officer Survival Techniques" will be broadcast on Thursday, September 11.

To register for this free event call Don Eno at the Academic Outreach Office at 834-7835.
