Program Design and Curriculum Development for Police Training.
Beilin, Lois A.
The project described focuses on working towards improving the quality of curriculum, instruction and evaluation procedures in the New York City Police Department. The problems facing competency-based training programs are reviewed, as are the specific problems of the New York City program. Attempts to improve the present training procedure include: (1) planning facilities to allow simulated patrol routines for recruits; (2) providing counseling services to help recruits with communication skills and personal problems; (3) improving the training and supervising of field training officers; (4) providing selected field experiences; and, (5) upgrading the teaching skills of the instructors. The researches conclude that an ideal training program would best be served by a decentralized training facility. Continuing problems faced by the training program are briefly delineated. (Author/PC)
