Training & Consulting Services

In-person and video conference training courses are available via Secure 1776, as well as consulting and analytical services in support of the public safety profession.

Comprehensive training courses, as well as consulting services in the following topic areas are in continual development and are available now:

  • “Understanding the Eight Levels of Supervisory Engagement” – a training course for police executives and managers who supervise law enforcement supervisors. A fundamental truth of organizations, including law enforcement agencies, is that underperforming and problem employees exist. When the underperforming or problem employee is a supervisor, the need for the organization to respond is elevated. Effectively addressing problematic and deficient supervisors is advanced through this executive-level training. 90-minute and 2-1/2 hour in-person versions of this course have been presented at statewide training conferences hosted by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police and the Illinois Sheriffs’ Association. The Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board – Executive Institute (ILETSB-EI) previously hosted this training in its Online Learning Network. Paired with our training on measuring police performance, the state training board is currently hosting this training within our full-day seminar, “Engagement that Meets the Mission.” Half-day and full-day seminar versions of this course are also an option nationally for law enforcement agencies and associations. Learn more now about the “Eight Levels of Supervisory Engagement.”
  • “Engagement that Meets the Mission” – a full-day, seminar-style, training course for police executives and managers who supervise law enforcement supervisors. The focus and level of engagement of an organization’s members are key variables in separating highly-effective agencies from failing ones. In any department with more than one member, no police executive can know all that goes on, at all times, within their organization. Even in smaller agencies, having one or two top-performing members is not enough for the organization overall to meet its mission. Two interrelated engagement factors are key in establishing a highly-effective organization. First, fostering excellence among the agency’s supervisors. Second, establishing internal assessment approaches that continually measure and build the organization’s core performance capabilities. The Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board – Executive Institute (ILETSB-EI) is currently hosting this training for Illinois law enforcement executives and command personnel. Learn more now about “Engagement that Meets the Mission.” Consulting options that help your agency enhance supervisory engagement and performance assessment efforts can be paired with this executive training and are available.
  • “Why and How to Measure Police Performance” – a training course for police executives, managers, and senior supervisory personnel on the importance and methods of management accountability processes. There are two key reasons for an organization to measure its performance, which is a composite of the performance levels of all of its members. First, standards provide the pathway to excellence. Only through measuring can an agency know how well it is meeting its mission. An in-person, half-day seminar version of this course has been developed in collaboration with the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board – Executive Institute (ILETSB-EI). This course is presented to Illinois police executives as part the state training board’s comprehensive 100-hour “Police Executive Role in the 21st Century” (PER21C) program. Customized versions of this course are available an option for law enforcement agencies and associations, as are assessment consulting services. Learn more now about measuring police performance.
  • “Leadership is an All-Levels Responsibility” – a training course for all law enforcement professionals. Each police officer, even those not holding a formal rank has the sworn duty to lead by example on two key levels. First, within the community that the officer serves. Second, among the other members of the officer’s unit, department, and profession. The best formal leaders understand that fundamentally, leadership is about persuasion. These leaders, draw upon their own informal (or relational) leadership abilities, and they do not rely upon the power of their rank alone to get others to act. They inspire. The best formal leaders seek to build a highly-effective organization, which is comprised of highly-effective individuals, performing at all-levels within the group. This course can be presented in one-hour and 90-minute versions, or paired with our course on “tragedy-free policing” in a two-hour conference presentation or a half-day seminar option. Learn more now about “all levels” leadership.
  • “High Noon – Responding to a Tragedy-Free Policing, Or Else Standard” – a training course for all public safety professionals, civic leaders, and elected officials relative to the need for approaches that strengthen the police-community bond through a fact-based understanding of the complexities of policing in America. This course was presented at the “2021 “Breaching the Barricade (BTB) Law Enforcement Conference.” See our course promotional video prepared for the 2021 BTB conference. This course is also available for law enforcement agencies and associations upon request. This course can be presented in one-hour and 90-minute versions, or paired with our course on “all-levels” leadership in a two-hour conference presentation or a half-day seminar option. Learn more now about the damage to the policing profession and the path forward in rebuilding community support.
