                              IPTACS CONTINUES TO ATTRACT TOP TRAINERS
                                           Joe Hauer, Managing Director
Almost daily I have the opportunity to speak with educators and trainers from throughout the United States and
world who have heard about IPTACS and would like to learn more about the company. I like having these
conversations, even when it pulls me away from more immediate responsibilities, because it reinforces our
training principles and the importance of maintaining high standards on both whose associated with us and how
they train. Quality instructors are a rare and special breed. They are individuals that know the difference
between pulling a lesson plan off the internet and designing a customized lesson that reflects the unique
environment, culture, and knowledge level of their students. They understand the importance of instruction
that is meaningful, hands-on, and utilizes all the learning domains. Quality instructors are perpetual students of
innovative instructional methods and their subject matter specialty. We have all been a participant in their
course room because we stick around after class to learn more and pick their brain. These are the instructors
that IPTACS is attracting as we welcome over 160 Senior Police Training Associates to the team as of January,
2011. IPTACS Senior Police Training Associates represent some of the most highly qualified and experienced
criminal justice educators and trainers in the world. Seventy-five percent have a bachelor degree and most
have either masters or doctorate degrees. They are leaders in the field of criminal justice research and
development and many have authored scholarly publications and lectured at symposiums and conferences
throughout the world and over one-fourth are full professors or adjunct professors who are developing future
criminal justice leaders at colleges and universities.

                                     IPTACS TECHNOLOGY CORNER
                                Chris Hallgren, Director of Information Technology

About a year ago, Director of Administration and Finance, Mark Busch, introduced me to Google Docs and, in
his words, he created a monster. The more I learned about Google Docs the more I liked it. It’s a great tool for
an organization like IPTACS - it allows us to store LOTS of documents at low cost and with minimal effort. Files
can be secured so that only certain people have access, and, of course, everything is available online.

Google Docs has become a key piece of technology for IPTACS. Our online trainer application, available
through the IPTACS website, is actually a Google Docs form. We use Google Docs to store and share all sorts of
internal company documents, and we have started building our Training Resource Library (TRL) in Google
Docs. The TRL allows trainers to share training materials (course outlines, PowerPoint presentations, videos,
etc.) with other trainers and is sure to become an invaluable asset for IPTACS.

Google Docs has turned out to be such a valuable resource for IPTACS that we have decided to share what
we’ve learned with others. In the next few months, we will develop a course offering that teaches agencies
how they can utilize Google Docs in their own countries – just one more element that will set IPTACS apart. To
learn more about Google Docs, visit docs.google.com.
                             IPTACS Senior Police Training Associate Dr. Stephen M. Hennessey is currently an
