Environmental Crime Program Training for Environmental Enforcement


Welcome to Project EnCriPT, Environmental Crime Program Training. Project EnCriPT is an online training resource for various aspects of environmental enforcement. It is developed as part of the Bill Blackwood Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas (LEMIT), which is a division of Sam Houston State University’s Criminal Justice Center. It is funded by a grant received from the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

Project EnCriPT provides an innovative approach to online training courses available to both civil and criminal enforcement professionals at local, state, and tribal levels including, but not limited to, law enforcement officers, sanitation workers, code enforcers, industry workers, etc. You may discover hands-on training as well.

New Information!

We are pleased to announce our new online cohort course, How to Handle the Media.

Designed specifically for Inspectors and Investigators, this course looks at all aspects of public information. The practitioner who may be called upon to share such information with the media will find this course to be a particularly valuable asset.

The modules will be offered online to separately registered cohorts. This means that you will sign up for a particular cohort, and be joined by a number of other colleagues with whom you will take the course. This facility allows you to interact with other participants in online discussions and activities about facets of the course. Each module will be offered for a defined number of weeks and will open on the date stated in the registration form. Following modules will open once the previous is completed. Nevertheless, the modules will be offered for a second time during the year with a different cohort.

The new online cohort, How to Handle the Media (or whatever the media course is called in blackboard), will end July 31, 2014. Soon thereafter the same course will be offered in a condensed, on-demand version. The How to Handle the Media cohort will be offered again in fall 2014.

For more information on TCOLE credit, please refer to the course descriptions.

We, at Project EnCriPT, hope that you enjoy the new offerings
