Seminars in Law Enforcement

Training modules and seminars

In addition to the academy, we offer training modules and continuing education seminars for officers and administrators. These courses are designed to help law enforcement professionals keep up with the demands and trends in public safety.

Available topics include firearms and tactical training, domestic violence, DWI, narcotics, legal updates, racial profiling, cyber crimes and defense tactics and custom courses. Courses range from patrol-oriented subjects to detective work, instructor development and specializations in a variety of subjects.

Check the calendar on the right for current seminar offerings.

Traveling seminars

Our faculty also travels to departments throughout the state to conduct training. We can customize courses to fit the individual needs of a given department.
