The Law Enforcement Training Association (LETA) is a not-for-profit agency which oversees the Police Judo recreational programs and is closely associated with Odd Squad Productions (OSPS). The same principals (largely consisting of serving and retired Vancouver Police members) are involved in both organizations . These LETA instructors possess decades of experience on the front lines of street crime and drug enforcement in downtown Vancouver. Their practical street knowledge about use of force is being passed down through Police Judo. Besides teaching law enforcement officers in their tactical Police Judo stream, they also use their recreational martial arts activities to teach civilians. Officers can learn highly-practical and effective control and arrest tactics in an ethical manner; youth can use physical skill literacy to develop resiliency skills needed to divert them from the dangers of drugs and organized crime.
These officers have taken their message across Canada, to the United States of America, Europe, into Asia, and across northern Mexico. They have access to a wide variety of police subject matter experts to address the current and future challenges of policing in any corner of the world. Our experts possess vast experience in international police education and are able to deliver programs in Canada or abroad. They are sensitive to cultural and religious issues in various markets and adapt their programs to suit any audience. These programs range from police leadership and ethics, use-of-force training and certification, corruption, public safety and security, media relations, drug education, crisis communications, self defense, and family violence, but they can also address any relevant issues facing police agencies globally.
Net proceeds of any training contracts through the not for profit Law Enforcement Training Association are applied to developing additional police judo programs for youth and law enforcement.
