Law Enforcement Technology (Police Science Technology). A Suggested Two-Year Post High School Curriculum.
University Research Corp., Bethesda, MD.
The suggested curriculum guide for law enforcement (police science) programs was designed to assist those responsible for implementing a course of study that is becoming a job requirement prior to employment in police service. Law enforcement education programs are discussed in terms of background, police roles, employment opportunities, and educational requirements. Program implementation is examined in terms of present commitments, advisory committees, program planning, staff, students, instructional material, and student evaluation. A four semester outline is presented, including an indication of class, laboratory, and outside study hours and brief descriptions of each course. Course outlines for units of instruction to cover the suggested curriculum are then presented under the following broad categories: technical specialty (10 courses); auxiliary and supporting technical (7 courses); general (10 courses). Suggested texts and references are listed after each course, and class hours necessary for each unit of instruction are indicated. Physical facility needs are examined closely and include diagrams, descriptions, necessary equipment, and their estimated costs. A bibliography of suggested materials is provided. Information regarding student and program assistance, and listings of film sources and postsecondary institutions with this type of program are appended. (LH)
