 "Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals Decision on DUI and Blood Draws"

Stewart v. State


Community Policing
Improving Police Efficacy and Building Trust
Instructor Development Program

Description:A common request from law enforcement leaders throughout the nation is access to quality training resources that equip their organizations to build partnerships with those they serve, proactively address crime, and improve quality of life and community safety. That’s why we’re excited to announce that the Oklahoma Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training has been selected as a host site for a nationwide instructor training initiative offered in partnership with the Virginia Center for Policing Innovation (VCPI) and the USDOJ, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS).

Community Policing Improving Police Efficacy and Building Trust is a 2.5-day instructor development program that prepares law enforcement trainers to deliver contemporary, researched training content to officers within their organizations, as well as their community partners. The program focuses on achieving the public safety mission by earning public trust and engaging the community in the shared responsibility of effective policing.

Course benefits:
The goal of the Community Policing Improving Police Efficacy and Building Trust course is to increase the capacity of law enforcement professionals and their community partners to engage in community policing on an unprecedented national scale. The tuition-free instructor training program, funded by the COPS Office, provides complete curriculum resources, including comprehensive lesson plans and presentation materials. While community policing has been a driving force in law enforcement for decades, this training presents information in the context of today’s challenges. It offers a flexible curriculum that’s designed to allow law enforcement trainers to apply what they’ve learned and implement training according to the needs of their own departments or communities.
