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.

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.
