Virginia Chiefs Announce First Mandatory Online In-Service Course

July 01, 2011  | 

The Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police (VACP) and The Response Network have introduced a new online in-service training course called "The Commonwealth of Virginia Law Enforcement Legal Updates and Changes in the Law."

Regular legal training is mandated for all Virginia sworn law enforcement officers. The course is available at, the online in-service law enforcement training portal operated by The Response Network.

"The design, quality and value pricing of this course is the first of its kind in the Commonwealth of Virginia," according to Dana Schrad, executive director of the VACP. "Now officers can have a training tool to call upon 24/7 over an entire year to insure their knowledge on the critical changes in the law are learned and retained."

The new course makes its debut as the Galax and Covington police departments join a growing list of Virginia law enforcement agencies turning to The Response Network to meet their online in-service training requirements.

"The Commonwealth of Virginia Law Enforcement Legal Updates and Changes in the Law" is a mandated and highly important Legal Updates course that was architected and managed by Randy Means, director of curriculum development and quality assurance for The Response Network. The Response Network also retained other Virginia-based law enforcement officers whose sub-specialties are legal updates, as well as other current and former prosecutors familiar with Virginia legal updates.

"The development of this critically important online legal updates course is a testament to the power of the partnership that exists between the VACP and The Response Network," according to Bradley J. Naples, president of The Response Network. "We will continue to work closely 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."

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