The Minnesota Crime Prevention Association is excited to announce a brand new training opportunity, never before held in Minnesota!

The Minnesota Crime Prevention Association would like to invite you to participate in the Security Assessment for Law Enforcement Personnel Seminar!  This seminar is a week-long training that will be held at the Bloomington Police Department from April 27th – May 1st. The curriculum will be taught by the American Crime Prevention Institute (ACPI), which provides crime prevention training and resource materials for both law enforcement agencies and community organizations throughout the United States. ACPI instructors are among the most knowledgeable and experienced crime prevention specialists, each with impressive law enforcement and academic credentials.

The Security Assessment for Law Enforcement Personnel Seminar is a unique training program designed to enable participants to effectively conduct a wide range of security surveys or assessments.  Security assessments address environmental security, physical security, electronic security and procedural security issues.
