Law Enforcement Training Program (LETP)
This program is funded through a grant award to RTC/GTA from the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Service (Cal OES). The RTC/GTA has worked on this program since its inception in the early 1990s. The program is unique in that it provides current training to law enforcement and public safety dispatchers through a multidisciplinary team trained in adult learning concepts.

There are no costs in tuition for any of the courses offered through this program. In addition, scholarship funding is available to support reimbursement of travel expenses for students and/or their agencies in attending these courses. Please contact Program Assistant Lauren Bunn at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
Hosting a Course at your Agency:
- Provide a training room large enough for 25-30 students
- Provide basic AV equipment – LCD projector and screen, speakers, flip chart with paper (if no whiteboard). If no A/V equipment available, RTC/GTA can still assist providing the course locally and will send equipment as necessary.
- Most importantly – ADVERTISE the class(es) to local agencies! The RTC/GTA will create a flyer for the course and advertise, but in our experience, local advertising makes the difference in obtaining enough students to run the course successfully!
