An advanced police training exercise organized in partnership by INTERPOL and the United States Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) focusing on technology and research will be held in Glynco, Georgia, USA on 14-15 December 2010. INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble and FLETC Director Connie Patrick will open the event.

The INTERPOL-FLETC Technology and Research Exercise targets training managers or experts from national or international police training entities (including police colleges and universities) wishing to keep abreast of and share best practices on how the latest technologies covering simulations, multimedia and virtual environments are used in the field of police training.

In furtherance of the theme ‘Building an International Learning Community’, the following major police training issues will be covered:

  • Research findings on law enforcement human performance in high stress situations
  • Table-top simulations for law enforcement training
  • Immersive simulations for law enforcement training
  • Use of e-learning and multimedia in police training, and examples of best practices
  • Training in support of joint operations
  • Learning improvement through quality training

For logistical and practical reasons, the number of participants will be limited and the exercise will be held in English only. No interpretation will be provided.

Officials who wish to attend the event must pre-register online no later than Friday 29 October 2010 via the pre-registration website, and comply with FLETC security and badging procedures, details of which are available on INTERPOL’s public website.
