Training Law Enforcement: Best Practices for Engaging Your Audience

Facilitated by Master Investigator (ret.) Rachael Frost

Our goals for any training are to educate attendees on our topic and gain a best practice result in the end, wherever we can.  When training law enforcement, it is especially important to understand what matters to them, how they accept information, what type of delivery will get them interested, and what will turn them off immediately. It is not about what we want to say as much as it is how they want to hear what we are saying. In this workshop, we will discuss “Perspective Messaging” and how to use it to engage with law enforcement in a training setting. This will include addressing law enforcement training styles and expectations, how to generate interest in your topic, and some training tips and tactics from an international trainer in violence recognition and response. By the end of this training, participants will:

  • Define and explain how to use “Perspective Messaging” effectively for both a law enforcement training environment and victim engagement
  • Discuss law enforcement expectations and responses to different types of training tools and messaging
  • Identify ways to increase engagement and absorption by law enforcement for training goals
  • Discuss self-leadership and leadership components to help address difficult training environments
  • See examples of successful training content
