– Major James Cleek, Training Bureau Commander, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, IN

“Yes, it saved us money, allowed officers time to take complete training when they had the time.”

– Chief Mike Cooke, Cumberland Metropolitan Police Department, IN

“Our department was looking for a cost effective way to get training for our Officers, Communications Operators and other staff and the Police One Academy filled that completely.
The courses are really informative and applicable to daily work. The on-line Instructors are extremely well-informed and great presenters. The wide range of training the Academy offers is helpful to our staff so they can choose the length of instruction be it a 10 minute roll call to a full 4 hour, TCOLE approved training course.
For an agency looking to go outside of the box for training options this is the way to go!”

– Sergeant Eric Weber, Training Sergeant, UT System Police – San Antonio

“It’s very convenient, PoliceOne can be logged in to from anywhere at any time, it saves on travel for the department and as a department we are able to get our mandated courses in throughout the year. Get our mandated courses in without having to leave the department and still being able to get extra training. The Custom course editor has been great and the policy tool.”

– Officer Veronica Riffle, Edgewood ISD, TX

“PoliceOne Academy is an effective means of providing training for officers whenever they have a free moment of downtime on the job or at home. All the Academy topics and videos are phenomenal (such as Handcuffing and Search and Seizure) and brings updated current training to the forefront of my department. It’s there all the time and it’s easy to use.”

– James Darmos, Executive Director of Training, New York City Department of Citywide Admin Services, NY

“Good price, good support, good variety of classes and the fact that they actively add courses. PoliceOne [Academy] allowed reserve officers to have regular access to training since their regular jobs are during normal hours… We are about to renew for our third year and can’t imagine not having it as a learning tool.”

– Chief Richard Priest, Lytle Police Dept, TX

“PoliceOne Academy has been an excellent resource for helping us fulfill our supplemental training needs. We especially appreciate being able to upload our own mandatory training videos that employees can view from any PC as time allows. This saves us a considerable amount of overtime and allows us to make the most out of our in-person training by using this time for “hands-on” training and using PoliceOne Academy for lecture videos that can be done in an online format. Tracking and reporting features also make it very easy for us to track and log our employees’ training hours.”

– Major John A. Godar, Second Deputy, Linn County Sheriff’s Office, IA

“[PoliceOne Academy account manager] Lacie Peterson has been phenomenal to work with. I am new to using the system and she has helped with guiding me through the program, setting up our training and always answering any and all questions.”

– Training Director Christine Arsenault, Essex County Sheriff’s Dept, MA

“We have saved hundreds just in transportation and hotel costs… there are greater challenges than ever to find worthwhile and competent training programs for our officers. With the addition of state imposed, unfunded mandates, we try to find good training for our people while still complying with state expectations. Approval of the Policing of the 21st Century 8-hour OPOTA approved block is an incredible step in the right direction and makes our subscription worth every penny, which it already was.”

– Assistant Chief Thomas Wells, Springdale Police Department, OH

“PoliceOne Academy has been an invaluable training tool for our department. It allows us the flexibility of relevant training to suit our needs. Most importantly we save thousands of dollars annually in overtime and course registration fees while being able to increase departmental training.” (click here for full Case Study)

– Chief Alexander Coghill, Canonsburg Police Dept, PA

“We wanted to offer a resource to our employees that we didn’t have previously. Adoption of this resource has been very good and is used almost daily across the Department… The assignments will save us from having to rush to find training for personnel at the end of the State training cycle.”

– David Anthony, Ennis Police Department, TX

“We used PoliceOne Academy as a training tool for our patrol officers a couple of years ago. After comparing PoliceOne with another web based training source, and seeing the improvements made to it since we last used PoliceOne, we decided to expand its use to include patrol, detention and communications staff… Our goal was to provide a cost effective, efficient method of training staff in different divisions that are working varied shifts. PoliceOne Academy is meeting our expectations.”

– Rick Kempsell, Broomfield Police Department, CO

“As of mid-December, all of our 115 full time certified officers reached 100% compliance in meeting Colorado POST’s new mandatory annual training requirements for 2015. PoliceOne Academy has been a huge help in reaching that goal. We look forward to using PoliceOne Academy in the coming year.”

– Dan Bender, Training Coordinator, La Plata County Sheriff’s Office, CO

“[Our department’s] goals were to (1) get required training and (2) do it in a cost-effective way. We definitely met those goals. The training is self-paced and can be done any time of day… [PoliceOne Academy is] very responsive to inquiries, and helpful while trying to navigate through the system. We have saved approximately $2,000 so far in switching to PoliceOne Academy.”

– Gary Barbour, Frederick Police Dept, CO

“With the rising price of training and related expenses, our department was looking for innovative ways to find training opportunities for our officers. We found out about PoliceOne Academy and were pleasantly surprised to find that many of the classes were current and the courses presented information that could be used right now. In some cases it was refresher information for our experienced officers, and in a lot of cases it was brand new information for a lot of our younger officers. This allowed us to train the entire agency (108 officers) in a timely manner and allow for discussion in roll call. We also use P1A for our annual Taser Recertification and Bloodborne Pathogens training. We are very pleased with the product and the training it offers at a very reasonable price.”

– Sgt. Brian Williams, Traffic Division, Auburn Police Dept, WA

“Our department has been using PoliceOne Academy for a year now and have found it extremely user friendly. Our officers are always giving feedback on the excellent quality of the videos and the up-to-date, relevant subject matter. Many of our officers complete courses beyond what they are assigned because of the quality of instruction they receive. The Academy seems to always be improving their training system by increasing their library of topics for law enforcement. The customizable courses are outstanding, giving us the ability to create our own training courses or policy reviews and then assign and track completion with exportable files. PoliceOne Academy has great tech support and they encourage suggestions and try very hard to meet your needs. We have used other systems and PoliceOne Academy by far has been the easiest and most reliable I have experienced.”

– Lt. Dan Jewell, Training Coordinator, Berrien County Sheriff’s Office, MI

“Our department has subscribed to PoliceOne Academy for a couple of years. We have received excellent training on topics that we are required to get in order to be in compliance with various requirements. The value is well beyond the actual cost. We could not get this training elsewhere for the price, which is reasonable for even a small agency. Police One is a great and affordable training resource.”

– Chief Gary Barbour, Frederick Police Dept, CO

“This is a wonderful program that you guys at Police One have created. The example of the training plan that you created was also very helpful. I have several officers that have completed training modules that I can input into the Louisiana State P.O.S.T. Database that helps keep them current with the states guidelines.”

– Sgt. Robert Stikes, Training Coordinator Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport Police Dept, LA

“I have found the tools of PoliceOne Academy to be a truly dynamic way to deliver and manage very valuable virtual training for law enforcement. In today’s world, law enforcement must find ways to train more efficiently and effectively, and PoliceOne Academy does that without question. PoliceOne Academy is a valued partner with the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police in our quest to deliver professional law enforcement services to our community.”

– Chief John A. Jackson, Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police, President

“The Green Bay Police Department began using the PoliceOne.com Academy in January of 2014. The idea was to have supplemental training material for our roll calls that is relevant and credible. The short videos offered in P1A provide just that and help facilitate further discussions in those roll calls. P1A is a convenient and easy way to access a library of training videos that gives the officer insight into a variety of training topics relevant to their job duties.”

– Lieutenant Chad W. Ramos, Professional Standards Division, Green Bay Police Dept, WI

“We are using this program like crazy, we’ve meet the Colorado POST requirements months ago for training and the Officers are averaging 3-4 modules a month. There have even been portions of the program we have implemented in the School Resource Officers class room presentations. This is the best program I have seen and used in 15 years.”

– Cpl. Dan Abdella, Bayfield Marshal’s Office, CO

“In an effort to make training more accessible for our department, PoliceOne Academy has allowed us to train year round without having to take officers off the street to sit in a classroom. P1A offers a multitude of topics that address current issues affecting our department, city, and society in general. Thank you P1A!”

– Sgt. Satre, Training Division, Monroe Police Dept, LA

“I have been with Police One Academy for one year. I have found the video training to be a great source for our officers. The content of the training is very appropriate for our operation, and the length of the videos allow officers to watch them on duty while being available for their duties and responsibilities. The Administrator access that I have allows me to track everything I need, ensuring the completion of the officers training assignments all while at work. I’m excited that Police One is putting together an entire video training section just for Security. As far as the cost, at the end of the first year, we paid about $1 per hour of video training per officer.”

– David Weatherwax, Director of Security, Hilton Head Island Beach & Tennis Resort

“The Rappahanock Regional Criminal Justice Academy is pleased to be partnered with the PoliceOne Academy to bring high quality online in-service training to our officers and deputies. For less than the cost of gas to drive to the academy my officers and deputies can enjoy a full year of training from the comfort of their offices, cars, or homes. In addition to the many training opportunities PoliceOne Academy offers we have also been able to provide our officers and deputies with up to 50 hours of Virginia in-service credit. Of course this partnership would not be possible without the relationship between my academy and PoliceOne. The level of customer service I have received from PoliceOne has far exceeded my expectations, from initial contact to the everyday on-going support everyone at PoliceOne makes us feel like we are their only customers. I would recommend PoliceOne Academy to any law enforcement agency looking to supplement their training needs.”

– Mike Harvey, Executive Director, Rappahanock Regional Criminal Justice Academy, VA

– Lieutenant Eric Rauch, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, FL

– Captain Maureen Watson, Seguin Police Department, TX

“We believe that the PoliceOne Academy’s online training is an excellent way to augment a training program and produce a culture where “every day is a training day”. Additionally, the staff has been great in supporting our launch.”

– Captain Billy Breedlove, Director of Training, Corpus Christi Police Department, TX

“The Policeone training academy has proved to be an excellent training tool for our department. It offers a vast amount of training courses that are relevant and applicable to anyone who wants to better him or herself as a law enforcement professional. With budget constraints being a common theme in the law enforcement community, online training is here to stay and Policeone has developed an online training option that is top notch and cost effective. Colorado POST approval makes it all the better.”

– Sgt. Brandon Tisher, La Plata County Sheriff’s Office, CO

“My department has been using this service for several months now, and it is a great learning and teaching tool. As a sergeant assigned to patrol supervisor duties, I find it effective in conducting roll call training and using the blocks of instruction to reinforce lessons learned from incidents we have dealt with.”

– Sgt. Timothy D. Cook, Jr., Attleboro Police Department, MA

“The Academy is working great for us, as it has given us a new dimension to our training and allows us some flexibility. The videos are great quality and relevant.”

– Federico Rascon, Asst. Training Manager, NASA White Sands Test Facility

“The PoliceOne Academy subscription that our agency signed up for over a year ago has quickly become an excellent training resource for our entire police department. There are literally hundreds of short training videos covering every facet of Law Enforcement that are ideal for daily roll-call training. The production quality and content has far exceeded our expectations, and the addition of the full length video training courses has made it even more valuable to us. Later this year we plan to utilize the Excited Delirium and Active Shooter full length courses in conjunction with our “hands-on” In-Service training. We are now in our second full year subscription to P1 Academy and are extremely satisfied with the overall product.”

– Officer Joe Engman, Training Coordinator, Bellevue Police Department, WA

“It is PoliceOne’s pragmatic approach to Law Enforcement training that inspires both trainer and candidate alike to constantly improve their skills and knowledge base. Their comprehensive video library is second to none, thank you PoliceOne in supporting my program!”

– Professor Peter St. Denis, Justice & Wellness Studies, Mohawk College

“The Police One Academy has allowed our Officers to complete the annual training required by the Nevada State POST in a convenient format at a reasonable price. I would recommend the Police One Academy to any department having trouble with sending their Officers to training in the traditional classroom format due to lack of funding or being shorthanded in Patrol.”

– Kathy Noahr, Training Coordinator, North Las Vegas Police Department, NV

“Excellent resource to build TCLEOSE credit!”
“Great refresher on aspects related to officer safety”
“Important reinforcement of officer safety practices.”
“PoliceOne Academy staff are very responsive and informative.”

– Asst. Chief Tom Mylett, Port of Corpus Christi Authority, TX

“The short format video courses are well designed and delivered to the end user. As a 35+ year law enforcement officer, my compliments.”

– Chief Kent Shuebrook, Amity Township Police Department

“Our Training Division determined one of the most cost-effective and strategic ways to deliver training was an online delivery system available 24/7. After careful consideration, the PoliceOne Academy was the outstanding choice. The PoliceOne Academy maintains high-quality video, up-to-date topics and provides excellent management tools to properly track and test each officer.”

– Deputy Chief Dale Phipps, Kingsport Police Department, TN

“Over the past five years due to budget constraints and permanent shift work it has become increasingly difficult to conduct departmental training outside of what is state mandated. The PoliceOne Academy provides us with the ability to supply supervisors, officers, and trainers a quick reference on a multitude of training topics that are up to date. It has allowed our platoons to conduct more meaningful roll call trainings by allowing an officer to go to one place rather than simply searching the internet or police related publications randomly for information or training topics.”

– Sgt. Jarrad P. Berkihiser, Lancaster Bureau of Police, Training & Personnel

“This is an outstanding format to receive valuable training and to maintain a high level of professionalism. We are relatively new to the academy and I have already had many positive comments from our officers. As an administrator, I love that we can save money and still receive an outstanding product!”

– Chief Steven L. Mattison, Wellsville (N.Y.) Police Department

“As a longtime user of the PoliceOne website, I have always found the information contained on their website to be useful for not only officers, but also in the academic setting teaching law enforcement students. When P1-Academy was released, I knew we had to find some way to become members. After only 2 short months as members, I have found the different training categories and sub-categories to be packed full of useful information and it has been an incredible addition to all of the courses I teach. Although it is often that we view these videos as the result of a tragedy to a fellow officer, I also feel we owe it to current and future officers to show and discuss these videos so that we can train current officers and prepare future officers for all the hidden dangers of this profession. Hats off to PoliceOne for another excellent product!”

– Sgt. Chris Dobratz (Ret.), Assistant Professor of Law Enforcement, Minnesota State University Mankato

“With budgets the way they are, P1A offers a way to give our deputies additional learning opportunities that do not require overtime or special equipment. Our deputies can utilize the website to conduct roll-call training, or complete it as an individual during down times of their shift.”

– Investigator Chris Brooks , Professional Standards Unit, Mesa County (Colo.) Sheriff’s Office

“We on the Probation & Parole level have found the Defensive Tactics and the interview techniques to be very interesting. In fact, I have applied to go to Instructors school for Defensive Tactics. I continue to watch the training videos offered and enjoy them very much. There is always something to learn from them.”

– Rod Johnson, Hobson Montana Probation & Parole

“PoliceOne Academy is an excellent resource for any size agency. Having these excellent training aids available online is a valuable resource. I found the video segments to be well-produced, comprehensive, and included current methodology. I look forward to using this library and seeing new additions in the future.”

– Greg Glassock, ICP Firearms Instructor, WA State Criminal Justice Training Commission

“Our agency currently uses an online based training system; however, our system does not provide training on tactics or patrol procedures. PoliceOne Academy would be a great addition to complement ours.”

– Edward V. Ochoa M.S., ICE, U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security

“The videos included in the PoliceOne Academy library are invaluable to me as I train pre-service college students about firearms and officer safety. The interactions along with the interviews with the officers involved demonstrate the needed mindset and training to survive a violent encounter. Keep up the good work!”

– Duane Wolfe, Law Enforcement Program, Alexandria Technical and Community College
