No-Cost training on COVID-19 is being made available for law enforcement and first responders through PoliceOne Academy.
Agencies currently using PoliceOne Academy can access the training through their normal P1A account.
For those agencies not using PoliceOne Academy, they can access the training by going to https://www.lexipol.com/coronavirus/, and again, it is 100 percent free.
An individual can self-sign-up to get access to the training, but if a training supervisor wants to make the training available to his or her entire department, that is free too.
The website states that the individual training would be helpful for law enforcement officers, fire and EMS, corrections officers and city employees.
Department heads and leaders should register under the tab titled “Organizational & Agency.” After filling it out, someone from the PoliceOne staff will on-board the department and roster information so the training can be assigned to all personnel and progress can be tracked.
