Testimonials for PoliceOne Academy

“We are extremely pleased with PoliceOne Academy’s platform, which has provided readily accessible training and a tool where we can quickly communicate new general orders. The ability to design our own training in the system is great because the content is available around the clock for our officers to access. One of our initial goals was to get our officers to complete our 8 hours of mandatory training online instead of at the academy, which has saved on time and cost tremendously. With PoliceOne’s learning platform, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department has saved $100,000 in the past year and we’ve doubled our training time average per officer in just months. We truly enjoy the ready-made training courses, custom course editor, policies and off-line training, all of which our officers [have come to] love.” (click here to read the Press Release & here to read the Case Study)

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

“We saw [PoliceOne Academy] being used by a larger department and after looking into PoliceOne, we decided to try it out. [Not only has] it saved us money, but we find the custom course tool truly valuable. Our officers have ample time to take and complete the training courses we create, which is great.”

– Chief Mike Crooke, 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

“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

“We are about to renew for another year of our subscription and can’t imagine not having [PoliceOne Academy] as a learning tool for our department. Not only is it easy to use and cost effective, but the variety of classes and continuous updates to course content allow our department to assign training at any time. We also like the fact that everybody in the department receives the same training assignment regardless of rank or status.”

– 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

“[PoliceOne Academy] is well worth the price and our officers have been using the training system since we put it into place. We have tried other [training solutions] but the content and production in PoliceOne keeps and holds our officers’ attention. With the addition of state imposed, unfunded mandates, we are able to use the programming to meet the State of Ohio’s [requirements]. The Academy is very user friendly and we like that supervisors have the ability to find and assign training programs at the shift level. Our subscription is worth every penny.”

– 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

“Ennis Police Department wanted to offer a resource to our employees that proved to be different from what we had previously. Since adopting [PoliceOne Academy], this system has been very good and is used daily across the Department. [There is] plenty of TCOLE eligible training and assignments allow us to ensure that all personnel are receiving mandated training hours on topics relevant to their position. The assignments are the best feature [in the system] because it saves 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 found value in purchasing PoliceOne Academy] based on cost, the efficient training methods and the ability to assign officers assignments to take during unencumbered time during their shift, and at their own pace. The ability to create custom policies, review assignments and track [progress] has been very helpful. Our assigned Account Manager, Lacie Pearson, has helped us set up our subscription and answered each of our questions in a timely manner. PoliceOne [continues to] meet 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 get required training and do it in a cost-effective way. [With PoliceOne Academy], those goals were definitely met. We really enjoy that training is self-paced and can be done at any time, and that PoliceOne is very responsive to inquiries when we need assistance navigating through the system. Courses are affordable and we have a cost savings of approximately $2,000 since switching to the PoliceOne Academy platform.”

– 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

“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 Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy is honored to be partnered with PoliceOne Academy to bring high quality online training to our officers and deputies. For less than the cost of gas to send an officer to the academy for one class, my agencies can provide year-round training and in-service credits to meet the state requirements. In addition to the many training opportunities, the customer service far exceeded my expectations. The level of support provided makes us feel like we are their only customer. I would recommend PoliceOne Academy to any law enforcement agency looking to supplement their training needs.”

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

“PoliceOne Academy online training is a valuable tool for any officer, that provides high liability training at a moment’s notice.” (click here for full Case Study)

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

“The PoliceOne Academy has been instrumental in streamlining our policy dissemination. It has improved both our effectiveness and our efficiency. Thanks so much for the wonderful service!” (click here for full Case Study)

– 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

“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 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

“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

“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

“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

“Ease of use and a cost effective platform are major reasons we chose PoliceOne Academy to train our officers. [Since implementing PoliceOne’s training platform], having many of the mandated courses continues to help us save on training cost and allows us to send our officers to classes that would not be as suitable to learn online. We enjoy having the policy and course creator functions, [which we use] for all of our policies.”

– Captain James Groom, Venus Police Department, TX
