General Information

Presentations can usually be formatted to specific age groups with locations varying depending on the request of the organization. The Edwardsville Police Department training room is also available for a central location if needed. Larger groups can be addressed with proper time notification so a comfortable location can be reserved within the community. 

Time is always a factor in everyone's busy schedule. The length and time of the presentations is based on the topic presented and usually can also be adjusted to meet anyone's day. This is usually addressed by the officer presenting and the organizations contact. Handout material is usually available with pertinent up to date information about the topic being presented.


Presentations need to be scheduled with the department and can be done in two (2) ways.
