The Videographer Awards has recognized the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police and d’Vinci Interactive for its use of video in training officers how to respond to veterans in crisis. Through poignant video interviews, veterans provide firsthand accounts of their experiences to give police officers insights and suggestions when intervening with vets whose distress may lead to crisis situations.
Each module of the eLearning course includes interviews with a combat veteran and a police chief who is also a veteran. The course provides tactical training to aid the officers in deescalating crisis situations. Police officers access this course and hundreds of hours of online training through the Pennsylvania Virtual Training Network (PAVTN).
PAVTN was developed using d’Vinci’s ecoLearn™ learning management system (LMS). Administrators use ecoLearn to facilitate learning by managing registration, modifying website content, emailing learners, and running reports. With ecoLearn, learners can see available training, access their profiles, and print transcripts and certificates. Officers receive Continuing Law Enforcement Education (CLEE) credits with the Municipal Police Officers’ Training and Education Commission.
The Videographer Awards is one of the most coveted awards in the video industry and recognizes top productions in a number of categories.
