Law enforcement agencies today are contending with an expanding set of challenges—new security threats, new laws and regulations, changing community and professional expectations—while trying to understand and implement emerging technologies. Simultaneously, law enforcement officers are operating under unprecedented scrutiny with their lives, careers and reputations constantly on the line.
In this increasingly complex environment, training is more important than ever. An effective training program can improve your organization’s performance and safety, develop and sharpen your leadership skills, boost staff morale, and improve relations between law enforcement and the communities you serve.
Kroll has decades of experience training law enforcement groups and organizations of all sizes, and individuals at various professional levels and career stages. Our training services cover a range of basic and advanced skills geared toward new and experienced police chiefs, agency leaders, investigators and officers.
Training for newly appointed leaders of law enforcement agencies is especially critical as most come to the job with little or no preparation for what awaits them. While a challenge, it is also an opportunity to transform an agency and reach for excellence in all areas. Kroll can help a new leader ensure his or her agency is receiving the best training with the most up-to-date tactics and changes in the law.
In today’s environment of heightened tensions between police and the public, practically any law enforcement agency can benefit from training in effective community outreach. Officers today must be trained not just to address crime, but to partner with members of the community to understand their needs and concerns and identify solutions. This new approach to policing requires training in, among other areas, de-escalation techniques and problem-solving skills, as well as realistic training drills and exercises to prepare officers for the reality of stresses they will need to respond to during the performance of duties.
Crisis communications is another area increasingly critical to law enforcement. Often operating under intense media scrutiny, agencies can quickly find themselves at the center of a firestorm. Preparing for a crisis, including proper media training, can put your agency on firm ground when the inevitable unexpected event arrives.
With decades of experience in law enforcement, our professional trainers are authorities in critical areas such as crisis leadership and preparedness, community engagement, deployment, investigative techniques, administrative tasks, event management, and a host of other tactical and strategic areas. We regularly draw upon these experiences and qualifications during our training sessions, sharing vital insight and expertise that will help you succeed in your role, wherever you are in your career.
Kroll understands that effective training programs need to address the specific nuances of each individual institution. Recognizing that federal, state and large metropolitan police agencies, small community forces, and university, healthcare and transit police organizations all face unique challenges, we tailor our training based on the institution and the needs of its professionals.
