The Kentucky Law Enforcement Council is inviting agencies from around the state to click the link of its new website that launches publicly Tuesday, Feb. 5.
“The KLEC website is now independent of any other academy site and better reflects our role as an oversight entity for Kentucky’s law enforcement training academies,” said Kenton County Police Chief Col. Michael “Spike” Jones, KLEC chair. “The goal of the design team was to make the website a (usable) tool for Kentucky’s training academies and law enforcement practitioners. I think the design team has exceeded this goal, and I’m excited about the future of our entire Kentucky law enforcement community.”
The KLEC is the governing body that reviews and approves how police officers are trained at basic and advanced levels, as well as who provides that training. The organization’s new website refreshes information that was previously hosted on the Department of Criminal Justice Training’s website and includes several new features that KLEC hopes will better serve the Kentucky law enforcement clientele.
Among the information included is an “A to Z” hiring-process checklist, Peace Officer Professional Standards (POPS) testing checklists, test times, Google Maps-supported directions to testing locations and reciprocity forms.
“If someone doesn’t’ want to call our office, they can go to our website and see almost everything they need,” said DeAnna Boling, Kentucky Law Enforcement Council Support program coordinator. “I’m a big proponent of customer service. If someone needs an answer from our office, I want them to be able to find it and get to it quickly.”
KLEC Executive Director Fran Root said the goal for the site creation was to make the process as user-friendly as possible.
Boling noted new additions she is specifically proud of is a news section, which she curates, and an academies section. The academies section will feature information for Kentucky’s law enforcement and telecommunications academies, as well as photos and how to contact them.
“It’s a showcase of who we represent,” Boling added.
