The Maine Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (MLEAP) is a voluntary program that allows police agencies in Maine to demonstrate their compliance with current best practices and standards developed by Maine law enforcement professionals. The program is managed by the Maine Chiefs of Police Association (MCOPA) in partnership with Dirigo Safety, LLC, and is designed to help agencies meet their professional obligations to the citizens of Maine.
The program is overseen by a committee of experienced law enforcement executives (LEE) and other executive-level sworn members of the MCOPA, who conduct reviews of agencies and award “accredited” status. Agencies interested in participating in the program should contact Dirigo Safety. Officers can also seek training directly as individual professionals.Learn More
Promotional Assessment Center
The Assessment Center is the “gold standard” of promotional testing. Candidates experience four or five job simulations custom-built to fit the position and the organization.
Dirigo Safety provides job simulations from the broad categories of Oral Presentations, Interactive Role-Playing Scenarios, Critical Thinking & Decision Making, Tactical, and Writing Exercises.
On test day, Dirigo Safety delivers a “turn-key operation,” providing all the materials and doing the scoring on-site. At the end of the day, your leaders participate in a briefing with the assessors and receive a rank-ordered list of candidates. All the documents created for the project and the assessors’ subjective comments about the candidates are provided shortly after the process, so each candidate also receives personal feedback.Learn More
