Updated-Reviewing Your Officers Training Record on LEDI

3/8/2018 2:16:00 PM

As you review your LEDI account, you will note your officers are marked as being out of compliance for some mandates. Not all deadlines have arrived, but they are approaching and Officers must meet a specified mandate at least once before the deadline indicated in the statute.  After meeting the initial deadline, Officers should know that:

 

Within 12 months of the initial completion of a Legal Update, or Use of Force (scenario) class, an officer must attend another such class, or their record reverts to "non-compliant" 

  • The Use of Force (scenarios) mandate is "generally" fulfilled by the Firearms Simulator, Taser recertification, Single Officer Response to Active Shooter or Rapid Deployment Training.

Within 36 months of the intial completion of a three year mandate, an officer must attend another such class, or their record reverts to "non-compliant" 

  • Three year mandates:  Civil Rights  -  Constitutional and proper use of law enforcement authority  - Cultural competency  -  Procedural Justice  - Human Rights

The pattern continues for each mandate according to its one, three, four or five year cycle.

 

When an officer attends a certified class the clock starts ticking to comply with that in-service mandate. When an officer takes a class that meets a mandate, the clocks starts over and is reset every time they take a class that meets that mandate.  In other words, officers are always looking back in time.

So the question is, has the "use of force" been taken in the last 12 months, has a procedural justice class been taken in the last 24 months (if not officers still have until the end of this year to meet the initial deadline). 

If they take a Procedural justice class today, the clock starts ticking for them to take another one within 36 months of today.  If they take a civil rights class next Thursday, the clock starts ticking for them to take another civil rights class 36 months from next Thursday.

 

January 1, 2019 is the deadline for the Sexual Assault Investigator Training. We should be rolling out the training in April 2018 and will offer several training opportunities before the deadline arrives.

 

January 1, 2012 is the deadline for Sexual Assault Trauma Informed Response for all officers. We should be rolling out the training in April 2018 and will offer several training opportunities before the deadline arrives.

 

Domestic Violence training is being developed and will be available on or before July 1, 2018, officers must receive domestic violence training once every five years. It is already listed as a mandate on your LEDI record, but they are only preparing for the future

 

In September 2016 the Board adopted the following policy:

When determining minimum in-service training requirements that a police officer must satisfactorily complete, only Board Certified courses that comply with Board approved guidelines will be considered.  Board Policy Adopted September 22, 2016

The above policy statement means agency in-service training will not be counted by the board as meeting a training requirement, unless the training was certified through a Mobile Team Unit (MTU), or the Executive Institute.    For more on this topic go to the MTU1 webpage - Guidelines for Mandated Training Topics & Board Policy Statement
