Oklahoma Terrorism Prevention Institute Trains Indianapolis -Site of Super Bowl 2012
(Oklahoma City, OK, Dec. 28, 2011) MIPT (Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism) and the Indianapolis Police Department have partnered to provide InCOP training to law enforcement and coordinate information collection.
Seven trainers from Indianapolis Police Department traveled to MIPT in Oklahoma City for the day-and-a-half long InCOP training on December 6th and 7th, 2011.
The trainers will take the course to train their officers with the goal of improving information collection and reporting skills throughout the department.
“The vigilant police officer is a vital part of ensuring national events like the Superbowl remain safe and secure. MIPT is working with agencies across the country to enhance information collection and sharing” said MIPT’s Executive Director David Cid. “The opportunity to work with departments as they prepare for these important events is a privilege.”
MIPT’s InCOP training delivery is set to begin the first of the year in Indianapolis to prep several dozen line officers for Super Bowl 2012.
InCOP is designed to improve the fundamental and essential skill of information collection for uniformed officers. InCOP 1 concepts are reinforced by the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI).
The Indianapolis Police Department joins other law enforcement department such as Milwaukee, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Miami-Dade and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office as alumni of the InCOP program.
