// 2017-2018 Annual Report
For over 20 years, the Virginia Center for Policing Innovation has been at the forefront of public safety and community policing, and our work is more relevant and urgent than ever. This past year has been an extraordinary opportunity for VCPI to expand its reach and create innovative ways to support public safety professionals and the communities they serve.
We’ve risen to meet the challenge. In this past year, we’ve launched new programs, built on recent successes and added talent to our growing team. We’ve implemented new ways to impact our audiences, embracing technology as a powerful means to further our mission. VCPI’s extensive online training initiatives have allowed us to provide the law enforcement community with unique web-accessible content on an unprecedented national scale. We are developing resources and tools specific to the needs of public safety across the country and through the innovative use of technology, these tools have become even more dynamic and widely used.
Simultaneous with our development of digital tools and resources, we’ve continued our work on the ground in communities across the country. VCPI has built a strong tradition of engaged, interactive instruction, and we’ve brought public safety officials and local leaders together through in-person training sessions that directly meet their needs, no matter the setting.
Above all, our focus continues to be on value. Whether we’re designing online curricula or conducting in-person training events, what’s driven our work has always been a dedication to high-quality, substantive resources for the public safety community.
We’re looking ahead to the new year with excitement. At the moment, we’re finalizing multiple development projects and gearing up to launch these new in-person and online training resources across the country. Simultaneously, we are kicking off several brand new national public safety programs and working with local agencies nationwide to develop and deliver solutions to their unique and varied public safety issues. The intersection of public safety and community policing is an ever-changing environment, and as VCPI becomes more robust and versatile, we have an opportunity to make an impact like never before.
