Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Entrusts its Training with PoliceOne Academy

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

After a rigorous vetting process, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) has selected PoliceOne Academy as an all-in-one online training solution for their agency, which employs more than 1,700 officers. Prior to using the PoliceOne Academy, IMPD personnel found assigning and tracking training a cumbersome process. Finding videos for roll call training was difficult. Manual documentation of training and paperwork was time consuming. An accredited training program was a must-have for IMPD and its personnel.

“We are extremely pleased with PoliceOne Academy which has allowed us to carry out a variety of training and policy distribution in a very simple and effective way,” said Major James Cleek. “In just a few clicks we are able to assign training to over 1,700 officers and we are amazed how quickly they are completing it. Our trainers are creating new material as well as using some of the PoliceOne Academy courses and we are consistently receiving feedback regarding how this system was truly built for the officer. [The PoliceOne Academy] system is allowing us to go to another level and communicate to a large amount of officers very quickly.”

The Academy is accepted for training credit in 36 states and is an Indiana Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) certified training provider. PoliceOne Academy can be used to fulfill all 24 hours of Indiana Law Enforcement Academy’s annual training requirements. A quick 4-step process allows the department to assign training, and easy reporting lets them create, download or print training and assignments for department personnel. Shift leaders can also assign credit to participants present during video discussions facilitated in-house with the roll call training feature.

As one of the largest law enforcement departments in the country, IMPD constantly strives to improve efficiency. Using the PoliceOne Academy learning management system (LMS) allows IMPD to host and deliver its policies and in-house training online, including PowerPoint, text or Word documents, videos and more, which can be assigned and tracked– with no limits on file size or quantity.

“We’re thrilled to have Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department as a client of PoliceOne Academy,” said Director Nicole Forzano. “The Academy platform provides large departments with a robust yet affordable training solution. Our team is dedicated to upholding a best-in-class platform for assigning, tracking, and sharing high-liability courses, standards, and policies in a seamless user experience.”

At the time of writing, officers in the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department have completed more than 7,500 policies & custom courses and nearly 4,500 hours of training.
