State of Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council Accredits IBAR Workshop
(Atlanta, GA)—August 12, 2015 Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute granted approval by the Georgia P.O.S.T. Council to offer six credit hours for its IBAR Critical Thinking Method (IBAR) workshop to law enforcement personnel.
As a hands-on, critical thinking method, IBAR is influenced by the legal analysis used in American law schools, but geared to the rank and file. IBAR works to provide law enforcement officers with advanced critical thinking skills, which are especially timely in light of the recent national controversies regarding police officers interacting with minority communities.
The objective of this workshop is to help police personnel enhance their professionalism, as well as curtail liability and litigation concerns by administering a systematic approach to decision making and problem solving.
The Georgia P.O.S.T. Council mandates training for the 50,000+ peace officers within the state. Additionally, all Georgia peace officers are required to take 20 hours of training annually to maintain their peace officer certification.
One metro Atlanta police department has weighed in on the IBAR Critical Thinking Method: MARTA Police Chief, Wanda Dunham felt that her department needed to focus more on critical thinking skills to ensure that departmental resources were being utilized efficiently. Chief Dunham said, “The IBAR Critical Thinking Method effectively takes you through the critical thinking process with clarity and symmetry, leading to a desired outcome. I like the system.”
Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute founder and developer of IBAR, Edward Brown, said, “The complexities and challenges facing law enforcement today require a smarter and more intelligent police force. If we are able to assist in further professionalizing and enhancing the face of police departments, we are doing what’s best for society as well as the best interest of officers.”
These 1-day workshops will be held at The Georgian Club, 100 Galleria Pkwy., Suite 1700, Atlanta, GA 30339, 9am-4pm, on September 16th, 23rd, and 30th. For registration and details, visit: or call: (678) 698-3386 directly.
