The VALOR Initiative was established in 2010 by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), as a response to growing trends in violence against law enforcement officers. Since its inception, VALOR has trained more than 22,000 officers across the United States. VALOR is committed to providing no-cost training, addressing current trends and contemporary issues that the law enforcement community encounters today. VALOR Training is designed for frontline law enforcement to promote officer safety and to help prevent injuries and deaths of law enforcement officers and the people they serve. VALOR provides training appropriate for all sworn law enforcement officers, from the newly appointed to the seasoned veteran, from the patrol officer to the police chief.
