Striving for Excellence in Policy & Training Management
Introducing the Lexipol Connect Recognition Program—designed to help our customers achieve excellence in policy and online training management!
At Lexipol, we’re approaching 20 years of helping public safety agencies address the critical need of up-to-date policies and training to better protect their communities. Over the years, we’ve identified key metrics that contribute to effective policy and training management. The Lexipol Connect Recognition Program is designed to give you insight into these metrics and recognize customers who achieve policy and training management excellence.

The Lexipol Connect Recognition Program involves five simple metrics in the areas of policy and online training:

What Are The Recognition Levels?
Based on these metrics, we’ve created a framework that defines target performance for each metric and recognizes agencies that are performing well through Bronze, Silver and Gold recognition levels. Here is the target performance for each level:
|Updates Pending||< 25||< 20||< 10|
|Daily Training Bulletins (DTBs) Issued||>70%||>70%||>80%|
To achieve a given performance level, all applicable criteria for that level must be met. Bronze level performance can be achieved by meeting the minimum required performance for three metrics – Policies Issued, Updates Pending and DTBs Issued. To achieve the Silver or Gold performance level, a minimum performance for Policies Acknowledged and DTBs Taken is also required.
|Average Hours of Training Assigned||≥ 4||≥ 4||≥ 8|
|Training Assignment Completions||N/A||≥ 70%||≥ 80%|
|Average Hours of Training Completed||≥ 8||≥ 8||≥ 12|
|User Activity||< 70%||≥ 70%||≥ 80%|
|External Training Ratio||≤ 0||> 0||> .5|
To achieve a given performance level, all applicable criteria for that level must be met. Bronze level performance can be achieved by meeting the minimum required performance for four metrics –Average Hours of Training Assigned, Average Hours of Training Completed, User Activity and External Training Ratio. To achieve the Silver performance level, a minimum performance for Training Assignment Completions is also required.
