Maine police to get training from LAPD
Portland is sending 15 officers to study policing in a department that is now a model for best practices
Portland Press Herald
PORTLAND, Maine — The police department next week will send 15 officers to Los Angeles - former home of Chief James Craig - to learn how the large urban police force does everything from special weapons and tactics training to internal affairs investigations.
''I am always looking for ways to elevate our effectiveness, and the best way to do that is look at best practices across the country,'' said Craig. He will not be accompanying the officers.
