Sovereign Citizen Training for Law Enforcement and Prosecutors :

Don't miss it !!!

Sponsored by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services.


Course Description:

The Virginia Office of the Attorney General (OAG), in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS), is pleased to announce a one day training bringing together law enforcement and prosecutors from jurisdictions across the Commonwealth to educate them about the sovereign citizen movement. The sovereign citizen movement involves individuals and groups who uniformly reject federal and state authority. Activities by these groups have included redemption schemes, use of fraudulent driver's licenses and vehicle plates, and use of documents that falsely claim diplomatic and law enforcement privileges. In recent years, law enforcement personnel in the Commonwealth have experienced a rise in the number of encounters with sovereign citizens. While the majority of these encounters do not involve violence, the potential for harm to law enforcement exists.

Who Should Attend?

This training is restricted to sworn Virginia law enforcement officers and prosecutors in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Topics to be Addressed

This course will address sovereign citizens; laws available for prosecuting sovereign citizen individuals and groups; and effective methods for dealing with them.

Topics will include:

Introduction and overview of Sovereign Citizen groups

Sovereign Citizen ideology and tactics

Moorish groups

Officer safety and road encounters

Legal theories under which Sovereign Citizens claim sovereignty

The legalese employed by Sovereign Citizens to confuse law enforcement and the courts

How the laws of the Commonwealth can address the crimes typically committed by Sovereign Citizens

still waiting for actual

still waiting for actual proof of the "sovereign" crap to work in court.


for a reason that you haven't even contemplated. the problem with you and your gibberish warfare stuff is not that it ever wins in court, but that it costs the taxpayers more and more money. The end result if your approach gets more widespread is going to be that judges will be given powers by their legislatures to stop lawsuits or defenses in their tracks without the normal motion to dismiss/demurrer procedures. The inevitable result of that is the legislation will overreach, and there will be persons with good cases or who merely want to argue actual merits who get shut down if their approach is the least bit unconventional.

I had hoped by the title that courses were being offered to begin turning law enforcement officers back into peace officers...
Alas, such is not the case, it appears.
