Training and Technical Assistance

ILJ helps federal agencies visualize, plan, and implement comprehensive strategies for training and technical assistance (TA). We also work with local and state government, community organizations, and the private sector to meet training and TA needs in public safety and criminal justice. ILJ offers

  • Expert consultants in all criminal justice fields
  • A full range of training and TA methods
  • Written, multimedia, and web-based tools and products custom-designed to meet clients’ objectives


For more than 20 years, ILJ has administered large-scale training and TA projects for the U. S. Department of Justice and other federal agencies. Through these projects, we work with hundreds of police and sheriff’s departments, prosecutors, other criminal justice agencies, and community based organizations throughout the country.
