Abstract: Evaluation is essential to all training programs and should include ongoing evaluation of the trainers, trainees, and expected outcomes of training. Self-report class evaluations can provide information on participants' perceptions of program relevance, trainer and training effectiveness, materials, and needed improvements. Such evaluations should be shared with trainers and can provide a basis for program modifications or improved trainer training. Followup surveys can provide information on participants' continuing perceptions of the program and its effectiveness. Attitude questionnaires can identify attitude changes resulting from training. Outcome evaluation, comparing trained and untrained officers, can be used to determine if program goals have been met. Behavioral evaluations can provide information on effectiveness of program components.
