This year's winning entries were the best of the best. We are proud to recognize the award winners who have greatly improved the performance of their organization and have shown clear, measurable business results through these innovative programs.

Allen Interactions, an internationally-acclaimed custom learning design, development and strategic consulting firm, and The California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST), won a Bronze Brandon Hall Award for Best Custom Content.

The award-winning e-learning course created for The California Commission on POST, Gangs: PC 186.22 for Patrol, was developed to help prepare California law enforcement officers to identify and respond to gang activity in their cities. “We are honored to receive this recognition and to have partnered with California Commission on POST on such crucial training initiatives as educating law enforcement on successfully identifying and responding to gang activity,” stated Michelle Magallanez studio executive for Allen Interactions’ San Francisco, California studio.

“In this e-learning course Allen Interactions used a highly interactive, scenario-based approach to not only educate peace officers about some of the key trends and groups in California, but to bring home the importance of accurate and detailed field reporting to support gang prosecution,” stated Catherine Bacon, project manager for the California Commission on POST’s learning technology resource center. “We are so pleased with the final product and it has already been taken by nearly 4,000 peace officers with very positive feedback.”

In the e-learning course, officers work through a storyline, which includes simulated neighborhood patrols, graffiti identification and challenging field interviews with gang members to gather key evidence in their case files. In the process of successfully navigating the interactive challenges, officers help the DA bring enhanced charges against the leaders of a new, emerging gang.
The Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Awards is presented annually by Brandon Hall Research, one of the leading research firms in training and development. Now in its seventeenth year, the awards program showcases exceptional work in learning & development.

"This year's winning entries were the best of the best. We are proud to recognize the award winners who have greatly improved the performance of their organization and have shown clear, measurable business results through these innovative programs," said Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group, Inc.
