The new professionalism
The demands of a changing world create new demands in law enforcement. Gone are the days when SWAT teams, investigation, arrest and interrogations were the sole focus of law-enforcement training. Those skills are still vital, but more than ever, today’s professionals must work with their communities for positive change. Whether for organizational assessment or training in community policing, counterintelligence, or crisis management, L-3 MPRI experts stress ethical behavior and emphasize the importance of good-citizenship programs and practices. Sometimes the point is to protect, other times it’s to educate, always it’s to serve.
Citizenship as law enforcement
L-3 MPRI’s experts have years of experience in the field. Many have retired after rising through the ranks to run their own departments or bureaus. We understand the needs of municipalities, states and even federal jurisdictions and foreign governments. Our education, training and tools are designed and based on this experience. U.S. government, international police organizations, law enforcement agencies, corporations and universities have all benefited from our insight.
With years of expertise in forensics, law enforcement, criminal justice, and security and emergency management, our people integrate classroom study and hand-on training in customized law enforcement programs.
Education, training and leader development: Our training programs cover leadership management, investigation, internal controls, task force operations, crisis management, community policing, counterintelligence, street survival, and facilities security and case management. In addition, executive coaches mentor newly appointed law enforcement chiefs and officials in labor relations, budget management, strategic planning and communications.
Organizational assessment and strategic planning: Analysis and organizational assessment to identify issues and develop strategies for sustained success beyond crisis situations.
International law enforcement training: Law enforcement training and organizational development focused on emerging and existing democracies and peacekeeping environments in support of the U.S. Department of Justice’s International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program [ICITAP]. L-3 MPRI currently provides civilian police instructors and advisors to police agencies in nearly 40 countries worldwide.
Our teams work in partnership with the host countries to customize programs that will be sustainable. Areas of focus include: strategic and operational assessments and planning, organizational development, recruitment, administrative policies and procedures, management, criminal investigations, forensics, accountability systems, and training and police academy development.
Under the ICITAP, training is provided to: enhance forensic and investigative skills, improve management capabilities of law enforcement agencies, improve police-community relationships, strengthen the ability to handle new criminal justice issues, and develop or enhance crime labs.
