The International Association of Law Enforcement Planners (IALEP) provides certification of law enforcement planners at two levels:
Certified Law Enforcement Planner & Advanced Law Enforcement Planner
Certification has been developed for the following purposes:
- To recognize the professional abilities and accomplishments of individual law enforcement planners
To promote and encourage professional development by individuals in the field of law enforcement planning
To provide the employers of law enforcement planners a reliable measure of professional competence
To provide employers of law enforcement planners with a basis on which to establish position descriptions
All of the requirements and standards for both levels of planner certification can be found in the Planner Certification Application and Standards booklet (revised 2015) and can be downloaded using the link above.
