Abstract: Incorporating an innovative mix of partnerships, the Maine law enforcement community has successfully integrated an online component into its overall training delivery system, the Maine Law Enforcement Online Training Initiative. The integration expands the capacity of the delivery system and provides ready access to high-quality, engaging content for all officers in the State. The initiative offers a single Internet-based training portal through which officers can address and document a host of training requirements. The final impact achieved is that the overall capabilities of Maine law enforcement agents are increased, improving the level of service provided to citizens and visitors of Maine. This article presents an overview of the initiative and its success.
