Over the past few years, as budgets have tightened in police departments across the country, one of the first line items to take a hit is training. Officers, training supervisors, and chiefs alike are always looking for high-quality, low-cost opportunities to build and sharpen their skill sets.
Have you considered the IACP Annual Conference as a source of training for your officers?
The IACP offers affordable one- and two-day conference passes for law enforcement personnel. At $65 and $125 respectively, these day passes offer a fantastic value for those who cannot afford the time or financial commitment of the full conference. Each day of IACP 2013 is packed with educational sessions that tackle nearly every contemporary challenge facing modern policing. You’re sure to find something that meets the needs and interests of your officers. Plus, barcoded name badges record and verify workshop attendance, making certificates available onsite in hard copy or in electronic format for easy documentation. IACP 2013 is in Philadelphia this year – an easy drive for thousands of police professionals on the east coast.
In addition, access to the Law Enforcement Technology Exposition is FREE for law enforcement personnel. The Expo Hall features over 750 exhibitors showcasing the latest equipment, technologies, and best practices. Plus, the Innovation Theatre and Solutions Presentations Theatre offer brief educational sessions on a variety of topics.
What better way to reward your veteran supervisors, aspiring young officers, or dedicated civilian analysts than to send them to IACP 2013 for the day? Where else can you get top-notch, high-quality training for less than $8 an hour? Plus, parking is FREE!
