Statewide Deadly Force Program - ADOPTED by the LETB

As directed by the Indiana Legislature in IC 5-2-1-1 and IC 5-2-9-1, the Indiana Law Enforcement Training Board recently passed a statewide policy on deadly force. The policy is intended to establish uniform standards across the State of Indiana to ensure the public safety and general welfare of Hoosiers and to promote equity for all segments of society. Attached please find the policy and a lesson plan with accompanying PowerPoint presentation to assist in training officers under your command.

This policy may not be added to, modified, or altered in any way by any Indiana law enforcement agency, office, or department.  You are encouraged to share the documents with your executive staff, training officers and officers/deputies/deputy marshals.  The policy goes into effect July 1, 2024.

If you have questions regarding the PowerPoint or lesson plan, please feel free to contact General Counsel Raquel Ramirez at or Director Timothy Horty

Further, the LETB adopted a Uniform Statewide Defensive Tactics Training Policy and statewide training program for basic training and annual in-service training for Indiana law enforcement officers. This information has been distributed statewide to defensive tactics instructors and training coordinators.

Important Updates on Tier II Classes

Beginning immediately, Tier II registration is now through a form found on the Acadis Portal.  Recent Tier II classes have filled quickly, and the new system will permit the Registrar’s Office to enroll students to better accommodate officers based on sworn or appointment dates.  To register an officer for Tier II, the OIC should log on to the Acadis Portal and go to the Academy Resource tab.  Make sure to use the Tier II Registration form and enter all required information. Registration can be made at any time as there will no longer be a registration date/time for Tier II. The Registrar’s Office will make notification of acceptance into a specific class.

Tier II enrollment is prioritized by person, not by agency.  Due to the number of officers needing Tier II training, ILEA does not permit holding a spot for an unknown officer or switching officers on the list.  Substitutions may only be made with authorization of the Executive Director.

Please note, beginning January 2024, Tier II is expanding to 10-weeks in residence in Plainfield in addition to the on-line learning. The LETB approved an 80-hour increase in the Tier II curriculum, resulting in an additional two (2) weeks at ILEA, for a total of 10 weeks staying at the academy.  This is still less than the Tier I curriculum and Tier II graduates accepting any Tier I positions must complete the entire Tier I course.

Important Information Concerning Tier I Registration

Due to the large number of requests to attend Tier I in Plainfield and the recent enrollment for class 2023-231 which filled up quickly, the ILEA is moving to a new registration method for Tier I training.

ILEA will begin using a new Tier I Class Registration Form found under the Academy Resource tab on the Acadis Portal.  When the Registrar’s Office begins enrollment for a Tier I class, priority will be given based on the sworn or appointment date (the date the one-year period begins to complete Basic training).  Enrollment will continue down the list for those waiting the longest until class capacity is reached.  Notification of acceptance to a Tier I class will be made approximately four (4) months prior to the start of the session.  This should allow those officers who have been waiting to attend Tier I longest to enroll before those recently sworn or appointed.

Please note, the list is prioritized by person, not by agency.  Due to the number of officers needing Tier I and to ensure fairness in accessing training, we cannot allow holding a spot for an unknown officer or switching officers on the list.  Substitutions on the list can only be made by authorization of the Executive Director.

We hope this helps resolve some of the issues brought to our attention when attempting to enroll students in Tier I training.  Thank you for assisting us.
