Pre-Technical Law Enforcement. Suggested Basic Course Outline.
Texas A and M Univ., College Station. Vocational Instructional Services.
This course outline is intended to assist vocational instructors in developing and teaching a pre-technical course in law enforcement. The outline, which has been written in accordance with the block progressive method of teaching, addresses the following areas: orientation (a course overview, youth leadership, and the history of law enforcement); investigation (the purposes of investigation, investigative procedures, and limitations); patrol procedures; law (common, case, and statute law and limitations); court procedures (role of the courts and civil, criminal, and juvenile court procedures); communications; corrections; community service (programs for the general public, delinquent youth, special groups, first aid, and crime prevention); and current trends (police training, careers, and entrepreneurship). Each major block is divided into a series of minor blocks, which are in turn broken down into individual tasks. Each task section includes a task statement, an instructional aim, cross-referenced information outlines, teaching suggestions, and suggested references and aids. Appendixes to the guide include lists of 34 suggested references and guidelines for developing a functional course of study and a suggested list of items that should be included when writing specific objectives.
