A Discussion with IADLEST on National Training Standards
On this podcast, the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST) comes back to join us for a discussion on law enforcement training. Training is critical to good policing, but it’s oftentimes the least understood area when we discuss policing and criminal justice reform. During this session, Peggy Schaefer – IADLEST’s National Certification Program Director - goes through the ins and outs of training – what constitutes good training, what policymakers should be thinking about when they consider proposals to improve training, and most importantly, how IADLEST can be a resource for law enforcement. (Don’t forget to check-out IADLEST’s podcast on the NDI, which is available below!)
