Early Intervention Programs for Law Enforcement Agencies

Early Intervention Programs is a 7-hour program designed to instruct supervisors on the concepts, responsibilities and procedures associated with Early Intervention Programs (EIPs). Administrators have recognized that a small percentage of officers are responsible for a large share of complaints that can damage an agency’s reputation. Early Intervention Programs can be implemented as a way to track and identify patterns of behavior and help prevent problem behaviors.

This course will assist agencies in:
- Establishing an Early Intervention Program (EIP)
- Identifying risk indicators
- Providing examples of action alternatives to assist officers
- Discussing pitfalls and other program problem areas
- Understanding the benefits of a viable EIP

This course will be instructed by Richard Lober, who specializes in training for law enforcement officers, correctional officers and investigators for government agencies.  Until his retirement in May 2010, Richard Lober was the Inspector General for Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection, which had over 4,000 employees, and has served as the Chief Inspector of the Office of Executive Investigations for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).  Lober also served in law enforcement, beginning in 1974, which included six years as a deputy/sergeant with the Miami-Dade Police Department. He received his Juris Doctorate in 1983 from Western New England School of Law and began his legal career as a prosecutor with the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office. He also has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Public Administration.  In 2010, Mr. Lober became a Certified Inspector General Auditor, which was awarded by the Association of Inspectors General.

Early Intervention Programs will be offered at the Criminal Justice Institute on April 28, 2017.
