What is a law enforcement planner? It includes law enforcement professionals such as researchers, analysts, planners, and all of the various job titles that oversee the administration of law enforcement agencies focused on evidence-based decisions. The administrative duties that support the field of law enforcement are varied and detailed, and a planner could provide any number of these duties. Policy development, research, evaluation, crime analysis, technology planning and oversight, budgeting, performance measures, social media, and intergovernmental relationships are just a small sampling of the competencies in which a law enforcement planner could focus. The International Association of Law Enforcement Planners offers professional certification for law enforcement professionals that have shown expertise in a certain number of job areas related to a law enforcement planning and administration professional.
This webinar will walk through what a planner is, examples of how planning functions are structured across the United States and Canada, the career path that some have taken to get to their role, and how to apply for and achieve professional certification as a law enforcement planner.
This webinar has been sponsored by the International Association of Law Enforcement Planners.
