LEDA SoCal 2024

Join us in Irvine, California, from September 10-13th, 2024 at the Mariner's Church for a loaded 4-day training event hosted by the Irvine Police Department!  

LEDA will be bringing a packed agenda covering topics like Tactical Drone Operations, Aerial Search Tactics, Crash/Crime Scene Reconstruction, Drone as First Responder Programs, UAS Program Hardening, Supervisors Courses, K9 Integration and so much more!  Below is a sample of what the SoCal Agenda will look like (some classes are subject to change based upon availability.).


We will also be introducing our "Seminar Only Pass" (SOP) at this event, where attendees who wish only to attend classes and will not fly can maintain their learning in classrooms and breakouts while our "Flight Pass" (FP) attendees are ripping up the practical scenarios stations, both indoor and out!  Those desiring the SOP will pay less, yet will gain lots of intel on the latest tactics and techniques, as well as the most up-to-date technology on the market.

HOTEL BLOCK: We are staying at the Irvine Marriott and have a RESERVATION BLOCK.  Rooms are first come, first served, so get your rooms reserved ASAP.  If it books up, we will go back and ask for additional rooms and push that information out when needed.

Testimonials from our Northeast Conference 2024

Check out just a few of our many reviews from our recent conference in the Boston Metro area in May of this year:

"This training really was fantastic. If it wasn’t for LEDA, my agency would not have a drone program. Everything I have ever learned about drone operations has been through LEDA."

"This is one of the best trainings and/or conferences I’ve been to over the last 20 years. I’ll pull whatever strings I can to convince my department to let me come back again and again..."

"Well worth my departments money and my time. Looking forward to the next one. There were so many experienced personnel in that room at one time, what more could you ask for in a training environment."

"Hands down the best police training I've ever taken. The volume of useful and truly relevant material was great. So much info to bring home and apply personally and to better develop and grow our program."

"The level of experience and knowledge of all of the instructors. As a supervisor of a new drone team, I gained a lot of usable information that will help make my program successful. The variety of breakout sessions was very helpful."

"Undoubtedly will make our program better short term and long term and drastically make me a better pilot and program manager."



Come learn the latest tactics and theory behind the why and how we do our best work in the field.  Join the hundreds of other pilots that have come to our events and developed a strong strategy to make themselves, their team and programs more effective on every call.
