In addition to the courses conducted by the Montana Law Enforcement Academy, other divisions within the Department of Justice and other state agencies offer specialized training for law enforcement and public safety professionals.
To maintain an effective state criminal justice information system and satisfy federal training requirements, all law enforcement and criminal justice professionals who access CJIN must complete certification within six months of gaining access and must recertify every two years.
CJIN Services provides an advanced web-based learning management system that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and presents on-line certification and recertification training programs customized to meet the needs of different CJIN user levels. In addition, through the learning management system, users can view their personal CJIN training transcripts and register to attend CJIN regional courses and conferences.
Every year, CJIN Services hosts the CJIN Terminal Agency Coordinator (TAC) Conference. The two-day statewide conference educates participating agencies on the latest system enhancements and policy updates. Agencies also are given the opportunity to share ideas for future development of Montana’s criminal justice information systems.
