There’s an organization in Holly Springs that trains law enforcement officers across the country to better serve their communities.
The International Academy of Public Safety or IAPS, began training police and sheriff’s departments five years ago. Today, more than 12,000 law enforcement officers in ten states have participated in their program. More than 3,000 of them are in North Carolina.
Chris Hoina is an expert trainer at IAPS. He says one of their biggest success stories is in Jefferson Parrish, Louisiana.
