Two of the nation’s most well-known and highly respected law enforcement use-of-force experts, attorney Randy Means and career law enforcement veteran and trainer Ed Nowicki, have teamed up to provide the law enforcement community with state-of-the-art training. Their “Best Practices in Use of Force” seminar is designed to keep officers safe and agencies well protected concerning issues related to the use of force. For many years, Means has been the primary legal and risk management instructor for the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). Nowicki currently serves as the executive director of the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA).
Means and Nowicki will offer their training through the specially formed ABLE (Allied Benefit to Law Enforcement) group. All law enforcement supervisors, managers, administrators and those responsible for the hiring, training, supervision and discipline of law enforcement officers can benefit from attending. Government risk managers and attorneys who represent and/or advise law enforcement may also benefit. Additionally, the program is open to sworn law enforcement officers, correctional officers, security professionals, military personnel and law enforcement trainers and educators. Means and Nowicki will conduct a limited number of both open enrollment and department contract training programs throughout the nation.
Two upcoming seminars: Nov. 9–10 near Chicago, and Dec. 7–8 near Detroit. Tuition for each costs $495. For more information or to sign up, call 704/543-7228.
