Brainseed Global Aviation Services and the Airport Law Enforcement Agencies Network (ALEAN) have partnered to provide a fresh look at airport law enforcement for airport professionals. Both organizations are pleased to conduct this two-day seminar, complete with new, up-to-date, interactive case scenarios, on March 25-26, 2013, at Richmond International Airport (RIC) in Richmond, Virginia.

The two-day comprehensive airport law enforcement training course will start by accepting the premise that airport policing has changed dramatically over the past two decades. With federal, state and local regulations looming over day to day operations and the need to simultaneously maintain a safe traveling environment and a high level of customer service, airport policing is more challenging than ever. This specialized training course will cover:

  • Federal Regulations 
  • The Importance of Customer Service 
  • Ethics in Policing 
  • Active Shooters Response 
  • Legal Aspects of the TSA screening process for law Enforcement Officers 
  • Hijacking and Crimes Onboard Commercial Aircraft 


The Learning Exchange is a method that, if selected, not only reinforces students' learning but also demonstrates improvement as a result of their attending the class. When students understand that they are responsible for the information they are receiving to the extent that they must give a short presentation during the training to demonstrate their learning they pay closer attention, have higher retention and can go back to their host air-port showing that the training has had a positive impact.
