The new training is a partnership of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center, Riverside Research, Sinclair Community College and Dayton Development Coalition.
The initial federal funding that supported development of the open-sources training is paying for representatives of 13 of the region’s police departments to undergo the newly adapted training, officials said. Riverside Research has taught two of the courses and will teach two more Aug. 20-24 and Aug. 27-31, then evaluate what the market needs are for future customers who would pay for the training, said Joel Rieman, a Riverside Research vice president.
His company is working with Sinclair and ATIC to include the training in their curriculums once the federally funded training contract has been completed, officials said.
