    State and local LE agencies' training

    Hello -

    I am new to LEF and as a civilian, would like to thank each and every LEO that reads this board (as well as those who do not) for doing what you do to protect your communities.

    With that said, in the interest of full disclosure, I work with a couple of companies that produce equipment that, IMO, is/could be valuable to many LEOs. However, I am not here to sell anything. Rather, I am conducting research about how state and local LE agencies conduct training.

    In your experience, do agencies conduct training in-house or do they use external resources to train officers? (I understand that new officers attend the Academy, but in my preliminary research, I have not been able to determine how agencies conduct training for veterans.)

    Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help and thanks again for everything you all do to keep us safe.

    In my experience we have both in-house or we call it in-service training and also are trained by external resources. It also depends on the type of training. I'm sure most if not all LE agencies do the same.

    That about sums up my department. Atleast once I taught them how to spell training..
    The opinions of my posts are the sole responsibilty of my employer due to the fact that they have totally and completely warped my mind.

    Whats Night Vision?? J/K

    Most departments cant afford that type of equipment for patrol officers. Likely its for just the SWAT types, (in my experience).

    Welcome to the site.

    In reference to your question I agree that most departments that do have night vision equipment mostly use an "in-house" training mindset. We use a night time training block yearly to go over how to use the equipment and allow the personel who do not have this equipment issued to them to "play" with it to see how it works.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    Before I answer this type of question I would like a bit more background on you and your company. If you do not feel like speaking of your company in the forums feel free to PM me the info.

    I absolutely do not feel comfortable answering this question. I don't know who you are. You could be a defense attorney, anti-police, or just a plain old criminal. Don't expect any answers from me on how officers train. That is a tactical and safety issue, and not one appropriate for the public area of this site.

    Therefore, this thread is being locked, and any further threads from you requesting potential sensitive law enforcement information will be locked as well.
