Named in honor of Dr. Larry T. Hoover, a longtime professor of Criminal Justice at Sam Houston State University who assisted with the development of LEMIT and its programs, this series presents innovative and practical ideas on policing in a 21st Century agency. The annual program features national leaders in the field who bring theory into practice in agencies across the country and provide valuable insight into how to build and operate modern and effective programs at the local level.
Larry T. Hoover Distinguished Speaker Series is a one-day course.
Participants may receive up to 7 hours of TCOLE credit.
If no notice of cancellation is received by the Program Coordinator prior to the date of the program, and the participant does not attend the program, the participant or their agency will be required to pay a $100 'NO-SHOW' fee.
