In 2021 True Security Design released Remote-Live Training and an On-Demand Police Training subscription service to address Budget, Social Distancing and Scheduling Issues Departments are Facing.

These remote services enable police agencies to train their staff around any of the covid lockdown and social distancing guidelines.

With the subscriptions, entire police agencies are addressing budget cuts by training entire staff for the cost of a single officer training. With the On-Demand service, police officers can take the training at any time overcoming scheduling obstacles they commonly face.

The On-Demand training benefits the individual officer their agency and the communities they serve.
