In-Service eLearning Training - 2020 / 2021

Here at MPI, we have been receiving inquiries as to the in service training menu for this fiscal year. We will present all of the MPTC (authorized and approved) in service training programs as we have always done and welcome your participation in our proven on line training service. Many of you have received notification from MPTC regarding the Acadis Portal. Please be advised that this portal is the MPTC on-line training venue for in-service training and is not related to MPI. (Please feel free to contact mptcacadis@state.ma.us with any questions.)

MPI currently has two on line training programs posted and ready for use as your “local option” portion of training for this year listed below. In addition, we are going forward with development of “Legal Updates,” “Longevity in Law Enforcement,” “Implicit Bias,” and “Domestic Terrorism,” as planned. As it stands right now, MPI will not be presenting a first responder program as that outline has yet to be presented.

In-Service "Local Option" Training - 2020 / 2021

The following programs are available now and meet the requirements for MPTC "Local Option" / Additional Training.

Communication De-escalation

Communication & De-escalation (3 hours)

With the possible exception of implicit bias training, no other training is more often demanded by policy makers, politicians, police executives, academics, civil rights activists, and citizens than de-escalation training for police. This training program will focus on how effective communication, in many instances, can help us manage a multitude of situations without the use of force. In addition, we will confront the difficult issues facing law enforcement today and explore some options to make your job safer and more effective.
Suicide An unwanted increase

Suicide: An Unwanted Increase in our Ranks (3 hours)

Suicide, the leading killer of law enforcement officers, is again on the rise. Police officers face a great deal of trauma on a day-to-day basis. This constant exposure to devastation, life-threatening situations, and the physical strain of working long hours can leave officers feeling hopeless and anxious. This training is designed to address the internal issues that largely contribute to officer suicide to include self-awareness, recognition of stigma, job protection, and administrative and peer support.
