Annotation: The study presents the findings and recommendations of a study of Michigan law enforcement agencies undertaken to identify and assess the adequacy of training programs and to establish minimum training standards.
Abstract: The objectives, methods, scope, and coverage of the study are presented in an administrative review of the project, along with recommendations for future similar projects. A survey questionnaire sent to 444 Michigan county, township, city, and village police agencies. The data gathered was based on a response of 364 (82 percent). A state-of-the-art survey of police training presents 60 tables and brief statements of major findings which point to the need for an increase in training programs for law enforcement agencies. The report covers an analysis of officer recruitment selection, and appointment practices; and a study of standards used to evaluate training facilities in such areas as building structure, classrooms, and fire protection. Studies and recommendations also are made for establishing guidelines for the development of regional training centers in strategic geographic locations, developing standards to determine requirements for instructors in approved police training schools, and recommendations for curriculum standards. Also included is a report on administrative procedures and lesson plans for use in training schools, and a complete state-of-the-art analysis of police training in Michigan. The survey questionnaire and related legislation are appended.
