Instructor: James F. Albrecht, NYPD Captain (Ret.)

Management of critical incidents and major cases present some of the most serious challenges that law enforcement agencies and public safety agencies may ever face. The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center presented immense challenges to the City of New York and all of the agencies that responded. Coordination of fire department, emergency medical services, police department and other law enforcement agencies, and other related agencies, can overwhelm a municipality.

This two day course is designed to show the decision makers in police and public safety agencies how pre-planning, agency coordination and cooperation, and proper critical incident management models can help any municipality deal with a crisis of large magnitude.

The instructor, James F. Albrecht, is a retired Captain of the New York City Police Department. Captain Albrecht was a first responder and a member of the incident command staff at the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Captain Albrecht responded to the November 12, 2001 commercial airliner crash in Queens, New York. Captain was a designated critical and emergency incident commander for the New York City Police Department.

James Albrecht is the editor and co-author of three books: “Effective Crime Reduction Strategies: International Perspectives;” “Policing Major Events: Perspective from Across the World;” and “Police Reserves and Volunteers in Law Enforcement: Global Perspectives,”  and has many published works dealing with law enforcement, community policing, legal history, corruption control, crime reduction strategies, justice-related gender issues, criminology, and international terrorism/counter-terrorism.
