Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman Announces Colorado is the First to Offer PoliceOne Academy Online Learning to Peace Officers Statewide
Training and learning management platform chosen after extensive evaluation process
Denver, CO - Police1.com, the leading online resource for law enforcement worldwide, announced that the Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) has selected the Police1 Academy learning management system and training platform to deliver courses to all law enforcement in Colorado. POST is housed in the Colorado Attorney General’s Office.
Effective July 1, 2017, this unprecedented collaboration will enable Colorado POST to provide vital training resources to all law enforcement agencies and 13,500 peace officers throughout the state via its online learning platform. "By forming this partnership with Police1, Colorado will continue to be a leader in the training of critical skills required for law enforcement professionals," said Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman. Police1 Academy is already the preferred training provider for 157 Colorado law enforcement agencies, who together employ a total of 7,800 officers in the state.
Colorado POST spent considerable time evaluating top training and learning management solutions, ultimately selecting Police1 Academy based on its proven reputation and usage in Colorado and the ability to produce timely law enforcement training courses. The Police1 Academy offers the unique ability for agencies to run their own programs in a customizable environment, selecting relevant training topics from the Academy library to offer alongside state-funded training resources 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
POST’s full access subscription to Police1 Academy will allow training staff at all POST member agencies to effectively and affordably manage top training initiatives, including compliance with POST required hours and continuing education in all areas, while also hosting department-specific policies and courses. Administrators will be able to automate and retain training records and track credentials in a standardized, centralized platform.
"My agency has been utilizing the convenience of Police1 Academy online training for several years now. It is quite useful for both shorter briefing-type training topics as well as those recently required by law that would be a challenge to host or attend in person," said Chad Day, Yuma County Sheriff. "PoliceOne is a great value for both smaller agencies and large ones throughout the state, and I'm excited that POST has taken the necessary steps to contract on behalf of all agencies in Colorado."
"PoliceOne Academy was built ground-up to meet the unique training and learning management needs of local law enforcement agencies, so it’s exciting to see the platform will be made accessible to an entire state,” said Alex Ford, CEO of Praetorian Digital and Police1. “Colorado has been a valued partner of Police1 for years, and we’re proud to offer our technology to deliver and track mission-critical training content.”
Police1 Academy is the preferred training provider for more than 1,000 law enforcement departments of all sizes across the United States.
