Two-Day Training Seminar
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.
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.
