Indiana Law Enforcement Academy:
Better remote-training experience with the help of IOT
The Indiana Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) is a training academy located in Plainfield, Indiana, that conducts basic training of law enforcement officers across the state.
When the pandemic began, the Academy had to adapt like the rest of the country and find a way to offer their training remotely to all new police officers, jail officers, town marshals, and police chiefs who would typically come in-person to the facility.
The Academy was using a borrowed Zoom account from Indiana University to host all of their training until the Indiana Office of Technology offered a better solution.
The Use Case
The basic training course for new police officers consists of more than 600 hours of training. Significant areas of instruction include criminal and traffic law, firearms, emergency vehicle operations, physical tactics, emergency management services awareness, and human behavior. Officers must also study other police-related subjects such as accident investigation, criminal investigation, domestic violence and sexual assault, water rescue training, standardized field sobriety test, crime prevention and drug and narcotics. All of this had to be completed virtually.
“With Covid causing the shutdown, we were behind by several classes, but with IOT’s help, we are now able to attempt to catch up,” John Glover, ILEA Systems Analyst, said.
