Who should attend: Sworn police officers from the rank of Chief of Police/Sheriff to police officers and deputies. This course is taught by active/retired chiefs of police. This is the training that is sweeping the nation with 1000’s of law enforcement professionals trained in the last years alone!
Nothing is as important to government services as the relationship between law enforcement and the public that is served. Recent inflammatory actions and news stories have had a severe impact and the perception of law enforcement. Agencies and individual employees must understand their role and that every action and statement that is made reflects on the profession as a whole. This training will focus not only on individual employee attitudes and beliefs, but also organizational concepts that either enhances trust or perpetuates a lack of trust with the communities that are served.
