Law Enforcement

Law Enforcement professionals provide a valuable service to the community by protecting citizens from crime and bringing criminals to justice. Regardless of where you fall on the law enforcement spectrum, from local or county or federal police, advancing your career depends on taking advantage of training and continuing education opportunities available to you.

Currently we are offering specialized training for sworn law enforcement (LE) professionals that includes Evidence Technician Training and Crisis Intervention Training.

Fall 2021 Course Descriptions and Schedule Information

The Evidence Technician class is designed for LE professionals; however, we have opened seats to college students in forensic science studies, insurance or fire investigators as well as to high school forensic science teachers. Request to attend would be reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis.

Regarded as the finest evidence technician training program of its type in the Midwest, this class is widely attended by individuals from local, state and federal agencies. Our comprehensive two-week program provides you with a solid forensic foundation giving you the confidence to work effectively in the field.
