Webinar series

We know it is sometimes difficult – if not impossible – to get out of the office to a training and sometimes schedules and budget don’t allow you to send those who would benefit most from trainings. To provide more training opportunities for our members, Retro provides a series of webinars focusing on a variety of workplace safety topics. The webinar series focuses on a broad array of safety issues that impact your city and staff, including safety rules updates, how to better engage with staff regarding safety, and specific hazards law enforcement staff have exposure to. Our webinar series allows members to train more employees for less cost.

All 2020 webinars are open for registration.
