LAW ENFORCEMENT TODAY
TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT
Law Enforcement Today has a unique perspective of the issues pertaining to law enforcement. Not a day goes by where national media headlines do not showcase the past, present, and future problems plaguing our societies. With political and public policies placing much of the burden on law enforcement, the weight to maintain the influx of the increased responsibilities and expectations is being felt among our personnel, police culture, and respective organizations. Here at Law Enforcement Today, we understand the importance of addressing these issues. We have developed a national network of law enforcement professionals who identify, resolve, and instruct the problem-solving answers to many of the demands we face. We are introducing this network under our Training & Development Division.
What makes LET different than most law enforcement training organizations is our approach to identifying the cause & effect relationships in our problems-of-practice. LET has assembled a team of researchers and professional experts who use empirically tested methods designed to identify the root causes to many of the problems we face. Because our occupations are so fast paced, we often do not see some of the underlying issues. In the past, the research method approach was often flawed due to the researchers not having a complex understanding of law enforcement practices and culture, leading to an inability to be effective and creating a negative perception to research from law enforcement practitioners. LET has eliminated both of these issues. Our researchers are current law enforcement officers. We have identified a new trend. There are many law enforcement officers across the country obtaining higher education, and, staying in the profession of law enforcement. By networking these “researcher-practitioners”, we have created a process which is using an innovative method to solve problems and is highly effective.
Once our research team has identified root causes and developed working solutions, our curriculum design team translates the science into education. Our training team has experts in curriculum design and instruction, all of whom are also law enforcement officers. Not only are they able to take the science and explain it in a way law enforcement officers will understand it, the instruction is delivered to keep attention, the training can be adjusted and catered to meet organizational resources, and each program has a matrix in order to ensure every agency, small or large can utilize the knowledge presented.
At LET, we know it can often be difficult to take on an issue, whether it be collecting data, implementing a new policy, negotiating contracts, or arguing for legislation. Because we have an elite network of law enforcement professionals, we have the ability to provide these experts in the form of service. No matter how large, or small, the issue may be for a law enforcement agency, union, or personnel, we have the ability to provide individuals who can assist in getting the job done.
“Getting through the Grid” – Advanced Stress Management
This course is not your typical stress management course. We have all seen the mass influx of stress management courses in the past few years and many send officers away worse than before they attended. This class was designed by officers who have been there. It is an understanding of the history of stress in law enforcement, the physiological, psychological, and sociological effects it has on us as individuals and as officers, proven ways to reduce stressors, and testimonials from those who have lived it. The participants will understand how to identify stress, reduce it, and why it is important to stay on top of it. Our goal with this course is to give officers the tools needed to complete a career in law enforcement with a positive outlook and enjoyed retirement.
