  • TEEX establishes Institute for Law Enforcement & Protective Services Excellence

COLLEGE
STATION – The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) has created
the Institute for Law Enforcement & Protective Services Excellence. The
institute will offer law enforcement and security extension training, which has
been a hallmark of TEEX for over 75 years, while expanding its offerings into
the broad array of protective services that include security assessments,
disaster preparedness, continuity of operations, and product evaluation, among
others. The institute is housed at the Texas A&M University System RELLIS
Campus.

“We have a
distinguished history and an excellent reputation for high-quality law
enforcement and security training across the Brazos Valley and the state of
Texas,” said Dr. John Ray, Director of the TEEX Institute for Law Enforcement
& Protective Services Excellence. “But this designation more accurately
reflects our multidimensional services that reach a national and international
audience, including a broad spectrum of state and local governments, federal
agencies, private sector companies, foreign entities, researchers and all types
of organizations.”

“We are also
collaborating with our sister Engineering agencies in The Texas A&M
University System to find ways to reduce officer deaths in traffic accidents,
improve radio communications, reduce exposure to fentanyl and test weapons and
less-lethal technologies,” he added.

“The
Institute for Law Enforcement & Protective Services Excellence is a team of
professionals prepared to offer a broad array of excellent services to a
diverse group of clientele,” said Charley Todd, Interim Director of the Texas
A&M Engineering Extension Service.

Thank you for the invitation to attend the BEDC recently held in Frisco. As a Board member of an EDC and not being my chosen career, I wanted to express my appreciation for the varied speakers assembled and case studies discussed. It was informative, enjoyable and time well spent. I look forward to the next opportunity to broaden my knowledge of the EDC world in such a pleasant environment that you create.
