Two-Day Training Seminar

Building Blocks of a Law Enforcement Volunteer Program and Advancing an Existing Law Enforcement Volunteer Program

Although law enforcement volunteer programs vary by agency, the principles in their foundation are universal. Modeled after the popular Volunteers in Police Service courses, this two-day training seminar will teach participants how to implement a volunteer program within a law enforcement agency as well as advance a law enforcement program already in place.

Who should attend?

This training seminar is deigned for officers and administrators charged with implementing a volunteer program in state, local or campus law enforcement agencies, as well as for officers and administrators managing a law enforcement volunteer program already in place. Attendees will come away with a greater understanding.
