Annotation: This paper describes the many-layered training system of the modern Russian militia.
Abstract: Russian militia members are not required to live in the area of their employment. Every incoming militia man signs a contract for a specific period of time, depending on rank. Prospective members must have completed their military service, be physically fit, and pass a psychological examination. In the current force, approximately 8 percent of militia members are women. The Russian militia has an elaborate training system, which includes four institutions of police training: the Training Centers, Militia Colleges, Militia University, and Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The curricula vary in their emphases on theory and academic courses, but generally focus on criminal justice, the law, forensic sciences, police psychology, and field training. 2 notes and 7 references
