The U.S. Attorney’s Office, in partnership with the National Resource and Technical Assistance Center for Improving Law Enforcement Investigations (NRTAC), recently presented a full-day training class for law enforcement officers and investigators in Orlando. This course, hosted by Valencia College’s School of Public Safety, provided best practices designed to improve attendees’ performance skills and outcomes during all phases of a criminal investigation, through successful prosecution.
Training topics included evidence collection; forensic analyses; case management and reconstruction; legal issues and considerations; emerging technologies; and community engagement. Presenters included NRTAC instructor Colin Fagan of the Medford Police Department, along with presenters from the USAO and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Approximately 100 law enforcement professionals attended the course.
