What We offer:


Russian Language Survival Guide for Law Enforcement

This scenario-based course provides law enforcement with the skills to interact with the Russian-speaking community to deter, interdict, and counteract drug-related activity conducted by Russian Speaking Organized Crime Groups (RSOCGs). Students will not only be provided with a foundational basis of the Russian language, including multiple tools for future study, but will also leave the course with a greater understanding of Russian-speaking culture and Slavic societal norms.  These skills coupled with practical scenarios focusing on criminal tattoo analysis, cybercrime, money laundering, fraud, human trafficking, and Russian-speaking organized crime syndicate history will provide the student with a Russian language survival guide for law enforcement operations. The capstone exercise requires students to build a link diagram of a notional RSOCG based on the skills gained throughout the course.
