The Need for Law Enforcement Training The primary reason for law enforcement agencies to seek training is to improve the quality of their officers' work that's being done on the street. Police officers are expected to perform a wide variety of tasks and duties in order to keep people safe from criminals. If officers aren't properly trained on how to perform their duties, they might not be able to keep people safe and could even end up in jail. You know this, which is why you are still reading. The Traditional Classroom While the traditional classroom model for training police officers has been effective in teaching many law enforcement skills, it's not ideal for many reasons. In person training often takes more time, requires a larger budgetary outlay and takes personnel off the street and away from their job. The traditional classroom model for training police officers is still the most common and, for many topics, preferred way to train. The use of hands-on instruction and practical exercises is seen as the best way to ensure that officers are adequately prepared for the real world. While we agree in person training is necessary for firearms, emergency vehicle operations, defensive tactics, taser and others, we offer a better way to train for these topics, including: Homicide and Death InvestigationsDomestic Violence InvestigationsChild Abuse and NeglectAutoerotic Death & Suicide InvestigationsCrime Scene Photography for PatrolWound Identification for the First Responder Benefits of Online Training The Online Learning Model is a great tool for training that can be used by both classroom and distance learning environments. Unlike traditional lecture/laboratory based training, the Online Course models the type of critical thinking that occurs in the real world. Online learning is a great way to train employees and provides a flexible and convenient learning environment in a variety of subjects. The cost savings alone are a shining example of how we are revolutionizing training for cops. We estimate that training with RTI yields a budgetary savings over $1,500 per officer, per course!!
