APD is hosting International Society of Crime Prevention Practitioners Training

The Albuquerque Police Department will be hosting the International Society of Crime Prevention Practitioners (ISCPP) for a course and exam in crime prevention on June 22-23-24, 2016 at the APD Foothills Substation at 12800 Lomas Blvd NE (between Juan Tabo and Tramway). 

The course will cover multiple blocks of crime prevention training and will conclude with a proctored exam.  Successful completion of the exam earns the attendee the professional designation of International Crime Prevention Specialist (ICPS), a one year membership to the ISCPP, access to the members-only portal of the ISCPP web site for professional contacts with crime prevention specialists around the world to exchange best practices and ideas, the ISCPP’s e-newsletter “The Practitioner” (open to any ISCPP member who would like to submit pieces for publication), the ISCPP training curriculum and ISCPP and ICPS certificates and membership pins.  The ICPS designation earns the recipient the right to use that designation in professional material and include in a signature block as well.

The Albuquerque ISCPP training in June will have multiple instructors flown in from across the country in addition to the three APD Crime Prevention Specialists who have successfully completed the training and exam.  The training is a great way to make contacts in the profession from around the world and learn more about the crime prevention field.  My ISCPP training course last year had several people from Colorado, a former police Captain from Germany and a Constable from the Royal Bahamas Police Force (for any example of the truly international scope of this organization).
