Customized training programs in police ethics
Take the risk out of your department’s risky business
Police scandals can happen anywhere. And when they hit, they hit hard, costing millions of dollars and ruining careers. In addition to the challenges officers face on the street, every aspect of police administration — from management, recruiting, training, and discipline to the handling of on- and off-duty misconduct — is subject to scrutiny and criticism.
To minimize risk to your department, we offer a variety of affordable training programs conducted on site and scheduled at your convenience.
