At the Texas Institute for Public Problem Solving (TIPPS), community policing is not just a philosophy - it's the best way to make Texas safer for all its citizens. Since we began training in 1998, TIPPS has provided practical, innovative, and effective training and technical assistance to over 11,000 police officers and community members throughout Texas, as well as to contribute to the general understanding of the public policy and the criminal justice system. All TIPPS courses are fully accredited by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education (TCLEOSE). They cover a wide variety of community policing subjects and have led to countless success stories. TIPPS is a Regional Community Policing Institute (RCPI), which is part of a national network of RCPIs established through a Department of Justice (DOJ), Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), and Regional Community Policing Institute (RCPI) cooperative agreement.
