Developing a More Effective Training Bureau

​One of the most critical positions held in a police department is the training officer.

 “It is important that officers receive training that accurately reflects department policy. There also is a growing recognition that officers should be given training that more effectively prepares them for the types of difficult situations they will face in the field.” US Department of Justice

​A well-run unit directly enhances department skill levels, officer performance and delivery of police services to the public.  Proper training of the high-risk civil liability areas, such as Use of Force, Search and Seizure Including Arrest, Care, Custody and Control of Prisoners and Interacting with a Diverse Community, helps reduces exposure to “negligent training” claims. Across the nation, the Training Unit is vital to the accreditation process. 

This course will guide the training officer on how to choose, develop and implement curriculum to include subjects that will effectively prepare officers for the challenges faced in the field as well as cover guidelines from the department and county, state and federal agencies. 

This one day course covers:

  • Administrative tasks of the position such as scheduling training and documenting attendance
  • Organizing methods and systems to meet accreditation standards
  • Necessity of reviewing and understanding department policies especially regarding  high-risk liability prone areas of police service
  • Define unit objectives and plan in-service course topics and/or the use of outside training resources
  • Use of various training methods, lecture, demonstration, discussions, online courses, or video courses, role play, small group teaching, reviewing case studies to meet needs of different learning styles
  • Verification & Evaluation methods to ensure officers understand and are competent in subject matter
  • Securing worthwhile outside training resources to meet standards and budget

Creating and Implementing an Employee Development Plan

A plan implemented by supervisory team to offer the failing officer opportunity to become a positive asset to the agency ensuring that the full value of an employee’s work is seen on a daily basis.

Every agency strives to hire the best possible people.  Unfortunately, we do have employees that have unforeseen challenges and difficulties in the work place which often have a negative effect on the officer, agency and community.

The Employee Development Plan (EDP) is a positive process used by the supervisory team to clearly identify an employee’s specific deficiencies while working with him or her to create a workable plan to overcome identified issues.

Students are taught the EDP’s step-by-step process which identifies areas of concern, sets attainable goals, agreed upon solutions are made, and specific timetable to assess progress is formed.  This program sets success criteria that is clearly established and documented so that progress or lack of is unmistakable.  

The proper use of an Employee Development Plan often avoids many of the negative consequences unaddressed problems often lead to such as citizen complaints, lawsuits, injuries, poor morale, financial expense and possibly a lost career.
