Virginia Chiefs Implement PoliceCommunity.net Training Portal

April 29, 2011  | 

The Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police (VACP) has entered into a strategic partnership with The Response Network (TRN) to provide Virginia law enforcement agencies with specific online in-service training courses offered exclusively by TRN at its PoliceCommunity.net, which provides an online in-service training.

"The Response Network's online in-service training courses are nothing less than compelling," according to Dana Schrad, executive director of the VACP, They engage as they educate and that is no small achievement.  We look forward to developing a series of courses that will benefit the Virginia law enforcement profession."

Along with the announcement of this strategic partnership, The Response Network introduced its first new online in-service course developed exclusively for the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police and all other Virginia law enforcement professionals, called "The Virginia Commonwealth Law Enforcement Legal Updates and Changes in the Law." Regular legal training is mandated for all Virginia sworn law enforcement officers.

Under the terms of the partnership agreement TRN will immediately begin developing customized courses for the VACP as Virginia law enforcement officers begin taking TRN's current series of courses. There are a number of Virginia law enforcement agencies that are already TRN subscribers. The Virginia Beach Police Department, Newport News Police Department, and the Hampton Police Division already have moved to adopt and use TRN's online training for in-service training.

In addition to its partnership with the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police (VACP), The Response Network's training programs are also endorsed by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), Brit Insurance, The FBI National Academy Associates (FBINAA), the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Association of Public Safety-Communications Professionals (APCO).

"This strategic agreement leverages the technical training expertise of The Response Network for the benefit of the VACP and Virginia law enforcement agencies," according to Bradley Naples, president and chief executive of The Response Network. "We look forward to working with the leadership of the VACP to provide an ongoing series of cutting edge, cost-effective online in-service training courses that engage and educate Virginia law enforcement officers."

A growing number of agencies nationwide have adopted The Response Network's online training program, including the Detroit Police Department, Jacksonville (Fla.) Sheriff's Office, Saint Augustine (Fla.) Police Department, Saint John's Sheriff's Department, Clayton (Ohio) Police Department, Park Ridge (Ill.) Police Department, Aberdeen (S.D.) Police Department, Ocean City (Del.) Police Department, Story County (Iowa) Sheriff's Department, and the Lincoln (N.H.) Police Department.
