Why We're Different

ACPI is different from other crime prevention training organizations. We cover a wide breadth of topics in deep detail, many of which you will not find taught in typical courses. Many of our programs carry lifetime certifications, with no need for continuing education or other interaction to maintain those credentials. And we have worked hard to provide you the utmost flexibility in how you consume the content - in-person, online or on-demand.
