PACE Police Training

We have the knowledge you need.

 About Us

PACE Applicant Background Investigations teach methodologies for complete and standardized background investigations of both police and civilian applicants. The methods are adaptable to ANY size agency.


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

The training program’s target audience is officers assigned to new applicant background investigations but supervisors, human resources representatives and city attorneys will benefit from the training as well.

PACE Police Training provides maximum training in minimal time.

The training was developed with respect for time constraints law enforcement agencies face when trying to schedule officers for multi-day trainings. All PACE training sessions are eight hours in length.

​PACE: Progressive, Adaptable, Complete and Effective.
