In 2019, the IJIS Institute formed a national partnership wit hthe National Police Foundation and the Rutgers University Center for Policing to offer a unique and customized training program for federal, state and local law enforcement executives, managers and staff who are exploring, evaluating or implementing emerging and enhanced technologies in their agencies.
The first three courses from the program in 2019 included:
- Promises and Perils of Law Enforcement Information Technology
- Emerging Law Enforcement Information Technology
- Law Enforcement Technology Project Management
Those participating in this training will complete the courses with enhanced ability to identify appropriate topics for their agency, to understand the factors affecting costs of acquisition and implementation (total cost of ownership) and how to anticipate and mitigate key risks and challenges while ensuring implementation that will advance the agency, save costs and ensure community support.
Those completing the courses will also receive a certificate and may anticipate continuing education credits from Rutgers.
The first of these courses, “Promises and Perils of Law Enforcement Information Technology,” were hosted on September 4-5, 2019, in Sayreville, New Jersey at the Middlesex Fire Academy. This seminar is intended for law enforcement executives in national, state and local agencies and organizations. It will be a case-study-oriented seminar to discuss the benefits that current and emerging information technologies can bring to improving law enforcement operations and the challenges that adoption of advanced technologies brings to an agency with ways to mitigate risks. The seminar will feature several speakers who are experts in law enforcement operations and technology.
