Law Enforcement Risk Specialist Training – Tifton, GA

April 9 @ 8:30 AM


The Law Enforcement Risk Specialist (LERS) training is aimed specifically towards reducing departmental law enforcement risks. This training is structured to provide valuable law enforcement risk management concepts that will focus on reducing departmental exposure.

GMA, ACCG, and LGRMS are sponsoring this program to assist Law Enforcement leadership and command staff alike, to identify risks associated with the day-to-day agency operations. The LERS training and certification will familiarize the risk specialist in each agency with the information needed to alert and support leadership before, during, and after a potential liability or officer injury event.

With the current law enforcement landscape, an agency must identify, assess, and mitigate law enforcement risks before they happen.  An internal LE Risk Specialist can inform leadership before circumstances escalate into a significant loss event. The risk specialist works directly with the agency head as either a primary or additional duty position and serves as a point of contact to coordinate activities within the public safety risk and loss control field representatives from LGRMS.
