Police Management Training Factors Influencing DWI Arrests. Final Report.
Bishop, Edward W.
The development of training material for police management personnel concerning command and supervisory actions appropriate for more effective driving-while-intoxicated (DWI) enforcement is desired. The training is based on two research studies that identified environmental and attitudinal factors influencing a patrolman's arrest decision. These factors are summarized in tabular form and discussed. The training program design is a workshop using the case-study technique. The following steps in the development of training content and format are desired: compilation of training requirements, selection of training objectives and strategy, design of materials, pilot tests, evaluation and revision of materials, and production of final copies. Results of three pilot tests of the training package and participant evaluations are presented, which indicate that (1) the training package developed by the project presented a necessary and interesting topic and (2) the format and manner of presentation were judged as adequate or better. Recommendations were that the materials be produced for dissemination and that continuing evaluation of workshops be maintained. Appended material (41 pages) includes: task descriptions from the project plan, final version of the workshop schedule, evaluation plan and instruments, and memorandum reports of pilot tests.
