Federal Law Enforcement Training Center:
With today’s increasingly constrained training budgets, law enforcement agencies need an alternative to costly training programs, that effectively results in a well-prepared officer force.
That is why the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) is funding a program under contract to provide Law Enforcement Online (LEO), a tuition-free online training library for sworn officers. LEO is a free subscription to 200 online courses which you and your sworn officers can complete directly from your computer. Many of the available courses have been approved by state training governing bodies for continuing education credits. With recent international and domestic events underscoring the need for all sworn officers to be ready – just read CNN’s articles from past weeks on the French police siege and the Ohio high school shooting, the LEO library includes such courses such as:
- First Responder in Active Shooter Situation
- Behaviors That Can Cost You Your Life
- Crime Scene Response
…and many more
This initiative is for sworn state, local, campus and tribal law enforcement officers only. Under contract, funding is provided by the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and we would welcome your assistance in distributing this message to any/all state, local, campus and tribal policing agencies.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at LEOhelp@acadisonline.com, dial direct (812) 961-7752 or call us toll-free at (888) 313-8324, extension 7752.
