Police Training and Performance Study.
McManus, George P.; And Others
With the intent of developing plans for improving police training at all levels within the New York City Police Department, this project reviewed and evaluated the training and performance received at the municipal academy. Specific objectives of the project were to develop a model training program for staff at all levels, develop plans for recruiting more civilians to the faculty, and create a system for evaluating the effectiveness of training by measuring on-the-job performance as a function of training. Recommendations that emerged from this project are stated in the major categories of basic policy commitments, recruit training, organizational recommendations, and inservice training. Supplementary information pertinent to the study, including a bibliography and abstracts of consultants' reports, is appended. (GEB)
