RMTI Global Campus will host the first-ever live digital law enforcement symposium on Recruitment, Retention, Leadership, and Succession Planning. The symposiums, held on six dates throughout the 2016/17 calendar years, will include keynote speakers on the topics of police recruitment and retention, police leadership, and police succession planning. The first symposium, scheduled for November 10, 2016, will be streamed live to law enforcement agencies located in the southwestern portion of the United States. Visit us at www.rmtiglobal.org for more information on dates and times of each symposium. Each symposium will include up to five thousand police agencies who attend a live interactive digital event that is streamed to their agency. There are no limitations on the number of officers, supervisors, or executive command staff who can attend the symposium.
According to Jason Jenkins, RMTI’s President and Chief Executive Officer, “Having spent twenty years in police work, I can say that this has never been done before in the law enforcement community. The ability to send streaming live data to up to five thousand agencies at one time is beyond cutting edge. Each agency will have the ability to submit questions to the keynote speakers and breakout session speakers and have their voices heard. We have a substantial amount of question and answer time set aside, so we will likely be able to answer the vast majority of questions that arise. Each keynote speaker will answer questions from the audience, which gives the digital symposium the same or greater levels of benefit when comparing to conventional symposiums. And the truth is, in a time when budget deficits loom, agencies just can’t afford to send folks to out-of-the-area symposiums. The idea of more with less in law enforcement is not going away anytime soon. So we decided to bring the expertise and relevant topics directly to them.”
In addition to the main topics of police recruitment, retention, leadership, and succession planning, RMTI Global’s symposium will include breakout sessions that agencies can decide to attend in whole or part on topics of Police Shootings, Mass Casualty Response, Police Informants – From The Mind of an Informant, and reviews of major police cases of recent past to name only a few. Each agency is given the opportunity to decide what training is appropriate for their agency. Mr. Jenkins added, “And it doesn’t stop there. If an agency pays to attend and not all personnel can attend the live event that they wish to have trained, they can simply attend an on-demand version of the event where they obtain the full benefit as if they were attending live. They can submit questions during the question and answer period and each keynote speaker will respond via email to the top twenty five questions that are sent following the live session.”
More details about the six series digital symposium will be forthcoming in the next month. This is a game changer for law enforcement. Being able to train their entire department on topics that are usually brought to symposiums and pay only one fee for their entire agency will allow more agencies to attend. Rather than sending only a few people, they can have the entire organization attend at the cost of sending one person. RMTI Global is an online training institute providing basic through advanced criminal justice, computer forensics, and computer-related training in a live instructor-led environment.
