As of August 1, 2019, The Regional Community Policing Institute - California (RCPI-CA) has closed it's doors.
The mission of the RCPI-CA was to create and enhance community and public trust policing practices for the benefit of communities and people throughout California.
Since 1997, the RCPI-CA had been successful in providing high quality training and technical assistance to law enforcement professionals, local government personnel, educators, and community members throughout California. Training was focused on community policing and problem solving by providing core classes featuring topics such as: school violence preparedness, community preparedness, prevention of urban terrorism, use of force, gang violence prevention, conflict resolution, ethics and integrity, and leadership development.
Originally implemented and supported through Department of Justice - Community Oriented Policing Services' (COPS) Initiative grant funding, the RCPI-CA was supported by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD). More than 800 additional local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, local governments, and community groups have enrolled representatives in RCPI-CA's courses these past two decades.
During its existence, RCPI-CA had provided video production and technical assistance at annual conferences and training workshops in support of associations such as: California Police Chiefs Association, California Women Leaders in Law Enforcement, California Gang Investigators Association, and California Crime Prevention Officers Association.
I would like to take this time opportunity to say "Thank You" to all who have contributed to the mission of the RCPI-CA.
Take care and be Safe,
Victor Zavala, Director
Regional Community Policing Institute-CA
