ST. LOUIS – In the wake of the riots and police actions and responses connected to the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, In the Line of Duty – the world leader in law enforcement video and internet training – has launched their newest online video training based on “best practices” learning from law enforcement leadership entitled “Ferguson/The Lessons Learned”.

Deemed “the Seminal Incident in 21st Century Law Enforcement”, this exclusive video features a one-on-one interview with Chief of Police for the St. Louis County Police Department, Col. Jon M. Belmar. The 1hour 30-minute training video includes the very first and exclusive in-depth overview and analysis of the incident which has literally impacted law enforcement training and education nationally.

In Col. Belmar’s own words: “If you only saw it on TV, you have absolutely no idea of the enormity of the incident and law enforcement’s (necessary) responses.”

“In the Line of Duty's; Ferguson, The Lessons Learned - Part 1 is an exceptional debrief of law enforcement’s actions following the officer involved shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. The most captivating aspect is (that) the entire film circumscribes an in-depth interview with St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar, who was at the center of the storm. Chief Belmar presents as an exemplary law enforcement executive who speaks candidly on every aspect of the events after the shooting. His revealing explanations concerning his decision-making processes while describing what went well and what didn't are educational.”

“The contents of Chief Belmar's description of events are highly relevant to law enforcement, but also to politicians, city managers, and all those with law enforcement oversight. Chief Belmar incentivizes the need to watch the film through this compelling quote; "It can happen to you..."
