In 2018, the Indiana University Police Department collaborated with IU faculty to create a commission to review IUPD’s approach to resistance and officers’ use of force. Following the commission, IUPD launched major training initiatives that have changed the culture of public safety within our agency, but also served as models that have influenced other agencies within Indiana and nationally.
IUPD officer training programs are a key element of our community policing initiatives.
Both new and current IUPD officers and cadets undergo extensive training that prioritize the needs of the communities we serve. These include the following nationally cutting-edge programs:
- Fair and Impartial Policing
- Mental Health First Aid
- PERF ICAT (Police Executive Research Forum’s Integrating Communications, Assessment, and Tactics)
- Procedural Justice
