This bibliography was compiled to highlight the literature on police training for police managers who are interested in expanding or improving their training programs. Following a section that describes how to obtain the documents, citations are presented in three sections. The first section, Overview of Police Training, contains citations related to general issues involved in police training and descriptions of training programs both in the U.S. and abroad. Section 2, Training Approaches, provides descriptions of specific approaches, including modular programs, laboratory training, use of closed-circuit television, workshops, and other innovations. The final section, Training Evaluation, cites documents related to measures of effective training and evaluations of specific programs and program types. In addition to bibliographic information, each citation includes a brief description of the document and gives availability information and the sponsoring agency where appropriate. The appendix presents a graphic summary of police training in each state. (LRA)
