These workshops are appropriate for computer rookies and veterans alike, and since
they are offered online, they will allow officers the freedom to advance at their
own pace over a four week period. They will also allow departments to schedule training
time for officers that will not negatively impact budgets, overtime, or shift work.
Each interactive online workshop is taught by experienced law enforcement experts
and will be submitted for 24 hours POST approval.

Director so that we can ensure your department's commitment to this program (24 hours
over a four week period). Don't miss this opportunity to experience an interactive

crime scenes from actual case files!). Class sizes are limited to 15 participants,
