The Indiana University Police Department's culture of training excellence and commitment to public safety has served as a model for agencies within Indiana and nationally. The IUPD's progressive approach was created in collaboration with IU faculty and other public safety subject matter experts.
IUPD officer training programs are a key element of the agency's community policing initiatives and extend beyond the mandated requirements of the Indiana Law Enforcement Training Board.
All IUPD officers and IU Police Academy recruits undergo extensive training that prioritizes the needs of the communities they serve. These include the following nationally-recognized and evidenced-based training programs:
- Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement
- Police Executive Research Forum’s Integrating Communications, Assessment, and Tactics
- Mental Health First Aid
- Procedural Justice
- Fair and Impartial Policing
- Trauma-informed sexual assault investigations training
