 About Us

PACE Police Training is an extension of the extremely popular Undercover Academy.


PACE methodologies were designed to maintain consistency in tactics and investigative procedures. These standardized methods maximize the efficiency of investigations, minimize the risk to officers, and limit agency liability. 

PACE Police Training offers multiple classes that meet and exceed expectations.

Current class offerings include:

  • Police Applicant Background Investigations

  • Surveillance for Police

  • Basic Police Photography

  • Basic Crime Scene Evidence processing

Upon completion of the Police Applicant Background Investigations class, the student is given access to the online PACE Police Training document library. Here they can access all the necessary forms to organize and streamline their investigations.

​PACE: Progressive, Adaptable, Complete and Effective.

We have the training you need.
