CSPD Connections - Colorado Springs Police Department’s Application & Information Portal
This system was developed and implemented in 2003. The system replaces a time-intensive manual paper system for scheduling Officers and Civilians for elective and mandatory classes.
Sergeant’s can now sign up their Officers directly into the system at their convenience. The system emails the Officer the specifics of the class he/she was registered for then 8 days before the class the Officer will receive a reminder notice. All of the records are now stored in a database and they can generate reports on attendance to ensure that all mandatory training is met.
The system also allows individuals to view the classes they have taken as well as they are scheduled.
During the 3rd/4th quarters, the Training Coordinator reported for the first time, ALL mandatory training had been completed.
