Instructor

Capt. LaPonda J. Fitchpatrick (Ret.), ACE, SHRM-SCP

Owner/Senior Consultant
LaPonda J. Fitchpatrick, Training and Consulting for the Real World
Canon City, CO

Captain LaPonda J. Fitchpatrick (Retired), owner and senior consultant/instructor for LaPonda J. Fitchpatrick, Training and Consulting for the Real WorldTM, was responsible for ensuring the safety, security, and regulatory compliance of the global gateway known as LAX and its satellite airports for over 30 years, retiring as a commanding officer within the Los Angeles Airport Police Department (LAXPD). After 9-11, LaPonda conceived and implemented the Los Angeles Airport Police Homeland Security Section to ensure multi-agency law enforcement and public safety activities and response was properly coordinated to reduce LAX’s vulnerability to a terrorist event or catastrophic emergency. This included the development of the nation’s largest airport law enforcement bomb detection K-9 unit, expedited multi-agency intelligence sharing, and an on-site tactical response unit tailored to the aviation environment. LaPonda is a nationally recognized aviation security and law enforcement consultant that has developed security systems, methods and procedures, and professional standards that are utilized by a myriad of local, state, federal, and international aviation security and law enforcement agencies that secure the global aviation environment. Understanding the importance of information sharing and training, she modernized and wrote the State of California mandated Aviation Security for Law Enforcement Officers training course as a consultant to the California Peace Officers’ Standards and Training Commission (POST) that certifies law enforcement officers. She created a training curriculum that addressed the multi-cultural and dynamic venue that a global system such as aviation presents with a concentration on terrorism and its global effect on aviation security. Post-9/11, taking this training curriculum nationwide, she has trained over 3500 police officers, TSA and other aviation security personnel, which included the entire law enforcement components for Atlanta-Hartsfield, Phoenix-Sky Harbor, Shreveport, and Jackson Evers Airport Police Departments. She created a variety of crisis emergency management and other aviation security-related courses. LaPonda also provides aviation security and public safety consulting services for Birdi & Associates, a systems engineering consulting and contracting firm based in Southern California. Intrigued by the jihadist phenomenon and its ability to influence ordinary people to participate in extraordinary and out-of-character violent acts, LaPonda returned to the classroom as a student to further her education in the field of Sociology as it relates to globalization and the effect on aviation and related workplace safety and security. She had a concentration in diversity, religion, and other issues that affect a global society. She received her B.A. from UCLA. She continues to be a life-long learner. LaPonda is a member of the AAAE Transportation Security, Training, Diversity, and Operations, Safety, Planning, and Emergency Management committees, and ASIS. She received the National Black Police Association Outstanding African American Woman in Law Enforcement “Taking Charge of Change” Award in 2011, and the California National Guard Commendation, Post 911 Operation Safe Passage Training and Military Deployment to Airports in 2002. Having a passion for Human Resources Management with a focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility (DEIA), non-discrimination, gender equality, and unconscious bias, LaPonda also helps organizations improve their service to both their internal and external customers by understanding that an organization is only as good as its culture, its employees, and its decision making. She helps organizations provide their teams with the essential tools and insights

BUILDING ACCESS AND COVID PROTOCOL

Visitor parking is located on the ramp to the underground garage, next to the main entrance on St. Asaph Street. AAAE is a secure building so you will need to ring the doorbell for entry. Once in the first-floor lobby, please be prepared to sign-in at the kiosk and note that you will be asked a series of symptom and exposure questions related to COVID-19 including whether or not you have been vaccinated.  Your responses will determine your ability to enter the building.  Once the sign-in process is complete, having been notified of your ability to enter, the AAAE staff person you are visiting will be notified and will then come meet you in the lobby to escort you around the building.

To avoid an issue with being admitted to the building please do not come to the building if you are not vaccinated or if you are experiencing, or within the 10 days prior have experienced, symptoms associated with COVID-19. You also should not come to the building if you believe that you may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by any government, state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for your treatment.  In addition, you should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are asked to contact AAAE if you experience symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive for the COVID-19 virus within 10 days after participating in the event.
