Is your police agency struggling with how to effectively train its personnel? A recent news report by 19 KYTX in Texas analyzed the issues with compliance and risk many law enforcement agencies in the Lone Star State are facing.
Lonny Wilder, who is TargetSolutions’ VP of Public Safety, was interviewed for the special feature to discuss several incidents that have brought scrutiny to various departments and how online training helps achieve better results. Investigations into the departments’ training have been conducted as a result of these incidents.
“It only takes one incident for the public to rise up and say, ‘gee, we need more training for these guys,’ ” Wilder said. “And I think that is happening with more frequency.”
Law Enforcement Requirements for Continuing Education
Every two years, the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement requires officers to complete 40 hours of law enforcement continuing education. It is left to the department to determine what type of training is completed. With TargetSolutions, law enforcement departments can access more than 240 training courses that are accepted by TCOLE.
Another key benefit of the online training management platform is the ability to start and stop training on your schedule with 24/7 access to law enforcement courses and training materials.
“Every decision they (police) make from moment they get out of that car, is absolutely critical,” Wilder said. “The training of law enforcement officers is critical and vital, not just for their continuing education and certification, but also for their safety and for well-being of the community at large that they serve.”
It’s important for police officers to meet state, federal and local training mandates, so they can serve their communities better. TargetSolutions offers a variety of resources and training materials to help law enforcement agencies.
