Best Practices for Law Enforcement Agencies
This course is a designed for all law enforcement professionals from police chief/sheriff to anyone who leads and manages divisions or bureaus, personnel who develop policies for their organizations and front–line supervisors.
Why is this program important? Law enforcement agencies around the country are facing increased scrutiny from the public, media and legal professionals. Law enforcement leaders must understand the focus and targets that are examined after an incident occurs. The United States Department of Justice may evaluate departments agency-wide as reviews are multi-dimensional in an organization.
This program will examine and identify critical areas with solutions and suggestions on how to prepare your agency to handle critical incidents appropriately through "best practice" policies and procedures. Real examples will be discussed and sample policies will be provided.
The instructor for this course is Chief of Police Gregory Anderson (ret.), who has more than 36 years of law enforcement experience. As a law enforcement executive, Chief Anderson has guided three separate law enforcement agencies through a variety of best practice and crisis incidents and has also been instructing nationally in such areas as professional standards, internals affairs, leadership and supervision. Chief Anderson has consulted with agencies across the country on law enforcement policies and best practices.
