The LGD is responsible for delivering professional, comprehensive legal training to over 85 federal law enforcement agencies, including the United States Secret Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, and the Internal Revenue Service, among others.
On average, LGD instructors have over 17 years of law enforcement experience, either as prosecuting attorneys in federal, state, and military courts, or as federal or state law enforcement officers. LGD instructors are currently licensed to practice law in the highest courts of 15 states, numerous state, federal, and military courts, and the United States Supreme Court. Individual LGD instructors have presented training at a number of professional law enforcement organizations, such as the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA) and have published articles in a variety of professional law enforcement publications, such as Police Chief Magazine. One member of the LGD staff has authored a book entitled, “The Sixth Circuit Criminal Law Handbook.”
As a division of the Office of Training Operations, the LGD staff is committed to delivering the highest quality legal training to both basic and advanced law enforcement personnel. In fulfilling this mandate, LGD instructors provide training on all areas of criminal law and procedure, including Constitutional law, search and seizure, self-incrimination, courtroom evidence, court testimony, electronic law and evidence, mail and wire fraud, and civil liability. While a large part of the LGD training mission focuses on newly hired law enforcement officers, the LGD also provides training for advanced law enforcement officers and attorneys in the Continuing Legal Education Training Program (CLETP).
