COMMISSION ON ACCREDITATION FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES
The Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA) received its initial accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) on July 31, 2004. On July 28, 2007, during the Montreal CALEA conference, OPOTA not only received its reaccreditation but also earned the prestigious “Flagship” status award for continually demonstrating excellence in its commitment to the accreditation process and a willingness to share its accreditation success with others. The CALEA Public Safety Training Academy Accreditation (PSTAA) program promotes superior public safety training academy services and recognizes professional excellence. OPOTA earned this reaccreditation honor by meeting 162 CALEA standards that are derived from the best practices of numerous professional public safety training agencies. OPOTA continually complies with these standards in order to provide the best possible service while remaining CALEA accredited. As stated on the CALEA web page, “An accredited public safety training academy will include professionals, who act with discretion, in the public trust, to standards set by experts in the field. An independent process is designed to implement the standards, verify compliance and award recognition. Accreditation is a coveted award that symbolizes professionalism, excellence, and competence. Accredited agencies can take pride in their department, knowing it represents the very best in public safety training academies” (CALEA, 2005). In keeping with our reputation as a nationwide leader in advanced law enforcement training, OPOTA was one of the first four agencies in the world to earn the CALEA Public Safety Training Academy Accreditation Award and only the third law enforcement training academy to receive the “Flagship” status.

FIELD TRAINING OPOTA offers the option of academy staff instructors conducting courses at sites away from OPOTA facilities. One or more agencies may wish to have select courses presented locally. Such courses involve an OPOTA staff instructor either teaching or coordinating a course at facilities provided by the requesting agency. Course options are limited by length and type of training. Certain courses are not conducive to field presentations. Administrators or local training officers should contact the Assistant Executive Director of Advanced Training at 740-845-6300 for more information. EOPOTA In an effort to make training affordable and convenient, the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy has established eOPOTA. eOPOTA is an online learning resource for criminal justice personnel providing training materials 24 hrs x 7 days a week. Learners can search for, enroll and take training in several categories. Subject areas include a forum for exchange of ideas among practitioners. Learners may also track personal training history and obtain transcripts of their participation. Feedback is encouraged, including referrals to training materials or programs that might be posted to the eOPOTA site. Additional information may be obtained by calling the eOPOTA administrator listed in the directory. We continue to expand the selection of courses offered on eOPOTA with interesting and valuable training. eOPOTA is accessible through the user’s Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway (OHLEG) log-in. New users will need to visit the Attorney General’s website at www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov, click on the OHLEG icon and click on “Request Form for Access to Investigative Tools.” Follow the instructions included on the form. OHIO LAW ENFORCEMENT GATEWAY (OHLEG) It is a top priority of the Attorney General’s Office to reach out to local public safety agencies to provide support and guidance for local crime fighting efforts. The Attorney General’s Office has made great advances to make sharing information among Ohio law enforcement agencies easier by creating OHLEG, the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway, an electronic criminal justice information network. OHLEG is a secure, Web-based platform that provides law enforcement with a variety of investigative tools and training applications to help solve and prevent crimes. Since its launch in 2003, OHLEG has rapidly expanded and hundreds of Ohio law enforcement agencies have signed on to take advantage of its many crime-fighting features. OHLEG currently provides access to numerous law enforcement databases and tools, and includes a cross-database search engine and propriety records management system for agencies that cannot afford to purchase a commercial recordkeeping system. Numerous crime-fighting and intelligence sharing tools are made available through OHLEG, which has already garnered the attention of the United States Department of Justice as a project to be replicated on a national level. Additional information about the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway, may be obtained by calling (866) 40-OHLEG, or by visiting the OHLEG website at www.ohleg.org. CRIMINAL JUSTICE UPDATE To keep law enforcement agencies atune to the latest news and information affecting their work, the Ohio Attorney General’s Office publishes an eight-page newsletter every other month. Criminal Justice Update provides details on court decisions and legislative actions that impact the law enforcement community, training and other services available from the Attorney General’s Office, upcoming events, trends and more.

HARLEY NORTHWESTERN MOTORCYCLE OPERATOR COURSE
For almost two decades, Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Inc. and Northwestern University Center for Public Safety have worked in partnership to present the nation’s premier training programs for police motorcyclists. Focusing on ten practical exercises that stress low-speed maneuverability, evasion techniques, and high-speed braking skills, students of our program spend approximately 90 percent of the course “in the saddle.” They are given practical exercises and riding instruction supplemented with classroom instruction and demonstrations of tactical techniques. In addition to our experienced instructional staff and recently revised curriculum, our program is unique in that Harley-Davidson’s Police and Fleet Sales Division provides a fleet of ABS FLSP “Road King” motorcycles which allow students to train on the same machines their departments will operate (participating students are welcome to bring their own motorcycle, but can expect to return with $1,500-$2,000 in cosmetic damage).

LINGUISTIC STATEMENT ANALYSIS TECHNIQUE (LSAT)-BASIC
This three-day program focuses on effective techniques for the detection of deception, truthfulness and identification of hidden information in a subject’s written or spoken statements. LSAT involves scientifically examining the word choice, structure and content of a subject’s statement to determine whether it is truthful or deceptive, as opposed to the traditional emotional manner of rationalizing the events in the subject’s story. Students will also learn how to develop and use the LSAT Investigative Questionnaire, or “IQ.” Using the IQ, one investigator can “interview” an unlimited number of suspects at the same time for virtually any offense, thereby narrowing the suspect list in a matter of minutes. The program is interactive with significant handson, statement analysis practice.

SCHOOL SHOOTINGS: PREVENTION, RESPONSE AND MITIGATION
Today school shootings have become cultural, social and criminal phenomena in the United States. For example, from February 8-14, 2009, students in such diverse places as Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Memphis, Tennessee; Oxnard, California; and DeKalb, Illinois were shot and killed by their peers. Topics for this course include: prevention strategies, the history of school shootings, Entertainment or murder?, internal response, classroom survival, external response and mitigation. This course provides in-depth case studies of actual events to include Columbine High School; Virginia Tech; Beslan, Russia; Case Western Reserve University; and several high profile incidents where the plots were foiled. The training will be interactive, encompass table top exercises and role playing scenarios. Although prevention strategies are known to work, they have had little impact upon shooting incidents once they begin. This course reviews how students and faculty survived attacks and how to adopt these tactics for your own survival. Moreover, a greater number of plots have been uncovered than ever before. Many of these included “groups” of students who want to imitate the Columbine and Virginia Tech massacres but are focused on setting records in the numbers of students wounded and killed. It is also important to recognize that terrorists have attacked schools overseas and are planning to replicate these attacks in America. This training is designed to bring together multiple disciplines to enhance the learning experience of each participant. As such, a broad based group of professionals from education, law enforcement, fire and EMS, school nurses and psychologists, negotiators, judges, dispatchers, government representatives, administrators, and teachers and students are encouraged to attend.
