Our mission is to provide California law enforcement with the highest quality and most cost effective training available.
The LACRTC is a cadre of accomplished course designers and facilitators who have joined together to address ongoing law enforcement training shortfalls. Because this cadre is primarily from Southern California, they are working under the name of, The Los Angeles County Regional Training Center (LACRTC). LACRTC is an affiliate of the California Multi-Agency Support Services (CAL-MASS) non-profit corporation.
LACTRC is driven by an ideological purpose to make California law enforcement the absolute best in the world at a cost that is true to the California tax payer. Because they are non-profit and mission-centered, they apply intelligent innovation and flexibility to bring consultation and course presentation to students throughout the state at an expense that is affordable to policing agencies.
Every course facilitator is a POST Master Instructor who has gone on to demonstrate a true mastery of course-design and classroom facilitation. Each instructor is vetted and brings the experience of having been sought by public and private sector entities because of their training prowess. Each course has been carefully designed using a three-part process of research, instructional systems design, and finally the creation of a complete and thorough total training documentation package.
LACRTC is a Corporate Affiliate of CAL-MASS
California Multi Agency Support Services (CAL-MASS), a non-profit organization, was formed to assist Local, State and Federal public services agencies with training, technical support for investigative purposes, field operations, consulting and technical assistance during emergency situations.
CAL-MASS is primarily funded through private and corporate donations as well as State and Federal grants. Our main focus is to eliminate the ever-growing red tape and political roadblocks often associated with multi-agency support services and provide whatever technical services that are needed in the shortest amount of time possible.
All too often technology is overlooked, partially because of the way operations have been conducted for the last fifty years, but mainly because of shrinking budgets, over-tasked employees, and the lack of technically skilled personnel. Often, smaller agencies and departments can no longer afford to staff units dedicated to technical investigations, thereby causing them to lose one of the greatest investigative tools available to them.
CAL-MASS, through its services, will benefit the community and work to “Lessen the Burdens of Government” by raising funding, primarily through Federal and State grants, as well as corporate and private donations. This will allow CAL-MASS to perform a multitude of services such as but not limited to education and training programs, technical assistance and investigative consulting, field support, mobile and emergency communications and community programs and services.
