Building Trust...

In late 2015, a national Gallup survey found community confidence in U.S. law enforcement had hit a 22-year low of 52%. In a post-Ferguson world, leading police chiefs agree professional development and human relations training are vital to regaining trust within our communities. 

While strong tactical training programs have always been a requirement for sworn peace officers, law enforcement agencies simply have not had funding for the kind of best-in-class soft skills and customer service training required to build trust with the citizens they serve. Until now...

GPOD™ (Global Peace Officer Development) was created in 2016 by a retired police officer and a business executive to support law enforcement through highly effective, customer service-focused training programs direct from the business world. GPOD™ partners with renown global training providers like Dale Carnegie Training® to build programs that put successful business training content into a law enforcement context.

Programs are made possible through the generous support of fully tax-deductible corporate sponsorships and charitable contributions. For more information on GPOD™ please see our one page info sheet and press release. Thank you!
