Interested in bringing Community Policing training to your agency but think you can’t afford it?
The Center for Public Safety Innovation at St. Petersburg College, through its Florida Regional Community Policing Institute (FL RCPI) has been training law enforcement and the communities they serve in the tenets of community policing since 1997. The FL RCPI can provide your agency with the skills and techniques used to:
When the FL RCPI first began providing community policing training to police departments in Florida, many of our instructors and police officers alike told us how they were burned out from the constant cycle of arresting, and re-arresting the same people over and over again. There was no job satisfaction in that scenario. Once they began using the techniques taught in “Introduction to Community Policing,” and began to work with the community, they saw their job satisfaction increase. When the community members attend the same training and go through the process of multi-voting to identify the most important problems they are having in their neighborhood, the community now has a stake in the outcome. They work with your officers to curb the crime. They form neighborhood associations and crime watches in order to keep the “broken windows” out of their neighborhoods.
Let an FL RCPI training coordinator work with you to provide you with a training package that will help your agency reach its goals. Training packages are affordable and flexible.
Many of the instructors that were instrumental in the success of the FL RCPI have since become chiefs of police and have taken the philosophy of community policing with them. Community Policing works. Become part of the solution for your agency. Call us today @ 727.341.4581 and ask to speak to an FL RCPI Training Coordinator!
