Law Enforcement Training Specialist
INTRODUCTION AND MISSION STATEMENT
I would like to introduce you to Law Enforcement Training Specialist International Inc, (L.E.T.S.). We are a federally registered, not for profit 501 (c)(3) instructional (teaching) organization, composed of law enforcement officers (working and retired). L.E.T.S. is a training organization whos only purpose is to assist handlers and agencies in the evaluation and improvement toward reliability of their canine programs and their specific scent professional canine teams.
An L.E.T.S. seminar is a no frills, hard working 40 hours focused on honing scent discrimination skills for reliable specific scent location, within each discipline. The purpose of an L.E.T.S. seminar is to identify areas of weakness (false indications, false hits/alerts, triggering, etc.), develop areas of strength (strong reliable alert, distraction resistant, etc.) and provide an independent "check and balance" source for department or agency proficiency requirements.
We also offer annual re-certification for all agencies or departments requiring this level of proficiency evaluations.
Should your department or agency believe this focus on specific scent reliability to be of benefit for your K9 teams and would be interested in hosting an L.E.T.S. Seminar in your area

We have no product to sell (we do not buy or sell dogs) and our only goal is to see that handlers know how to train (including correcting problems), how to document the training, are prepared to work reliably, how to document their reliability, and are ready to address court challenges.
What we do have is an honest evaluation of your canine's team capabilities, a course of instruction, and a certification path that covers what your team will encounter in real life, and in court. We will leave your handlers more educated and your team better prepared.
Currently L.E.T.S. is the only National/International Organization that requires scent discrimination be tested (and documented) through the placement of "distraction/novelty" odors during certification testing. We also require that food refusal be tested and documented, no other organization does this. L.E.T.S. has been perfecting this level of reliability for over two decades. At the conclusion of the L.E.T.S. specific scent course you will know that your team has the ability to scent discriminate, the knowledge to train for it, and how to document it.
L.E.T.S. requires a 90% "find to alert" ratio to pass the course.
