ABOUT LEEP

Welcome to LEEP

 

Law enforcement leaders will tell you that when finances are tight the training budget is the first casualty. 

 

The Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP) at The American Police Hall of Fame offers world class tactical/strategic training with the nation’s premiere instructors at little or no cost to LEOs or their agencies -- and LEOs may also receive mandatory retraining credit, thanks to our partnership with Eastern Florida State College (EFSC) and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).

Likewise, the classes are offered in manageable chunks of time so agencies and offers are not disadvantaged in the process.

 
 


About Us

Years of Research/Analysis

 

We depend on surveys and input from other national LE agencies and organizations regarding the challenges they face. The need for more, better training is a consistent theme. Even as agencies acknowledge the importance of tactical education, the number of agencies that actually make it available, let alone a priority, remains between 50-60%, leaving 40-50% of officers with no mandated or supported annual training in defensive techniques, force-on-force, defensive driving and more.

 

Beyond simply reporting the realities of training deficiency, the APHF Board of Directors has charged the organization with taking action to change those numbers and, in so doing, protect both law enforcement and civilian lives.
