Who, What, When, Where and Why

Who We are one of the most passionate, innovative and driven groups of people you will ever meet. Every one of us is dedicated to providing the absolute best possible services and experiences. Our extraordinary team extends far beyond our staff to include a nationally acclaimed faculty; local, state and federal partnerships; a supportive board of directors; and most importantly, our program participants, who continue to astound us with their commitment to public safety and their professionalism, becoming our inspiration and reinvigorating our purpose.
What VCPI is a powerful resource for public safety nationwide, providing a one-stop shop for the development and delivery of training, consulting, technical assistance, program management, national conference coordination, and much more. Our contributions to the progressive ideas that are shaping the future of public safety have placed VCPI in a leadership role in the growth of the public-safety profession nationwide.
When VCPI opened its doors in 1997 and we have been addressing critical and emerging public-safety issues every day since.

Where VCPI impacts agencies and communities in every one of the fifty states and around the world. Our ongoing partnerships with local, state and federal law enforcement and organizations, universities, and communities often serve as occasions for VCPI to revisit areas previously served. However, perhaps even more exciting are the opportunities for VCPI to expand its reach into new communities nationwide. These opportunities are often made possible by our ongoing partnerships with organizations such as the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and more.
Why Our mission is to provide unparalleled training and services for law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve. But that doesn’t tell the whole story. VCPI does what it does: because nothing is as important as public safety, because what we do makes a difference in people’s lives both professionally and personally, because the sky is the limit in what we can accomplish together, and because in the words of Andrew Jacobs, Sr., “If you do this job properly, there is nothing more noble you will do with your life.”

What others are saying about VCPI's programs

... this is the first legal issue class that I lost track of time and was surprised when the end came. An outstanding class, I recommend this class to all agencies, local, state or federal.
VCPI is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to our mission to advance public safety by providing unparalleled training and services for law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve.
