Week 4 – Assignment
Selecting a Field Training Program
Select two of the six case studies in A Problem-Based Learning Manual for Training and Evaluating Police Trainees (Links to an external site.), and write a comparison of the two agencies’ field training programs. What are the significant differences regarding the size of the department and the focus of community oriented policing? What changes, in terms of increasing the size of the department and the available time for commitment to training, will be involved in the development of trainees? How are training officers selected? Finally, provide your opinion regarding the best program for achieving the selected department’s goals.
The paper must be two pages in length and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly sources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford University Library) other than the textbook to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
