Abstract: The stated goal of the Police Corps is to increase the educational and training level of America's law enforcement officers. Highly educated, well-trained police officers are placed in areas experiencing great social need. Highlights of 1999 include: (1) Police Corps officers on the beat nearly doubled; (2) The Federal office initiated special assistance with outreach and recruitment and the States expanded their range of outreach activities to recruit minority and female participants; (3) Police Corps training expanded in breadth and realism, and leadership training for front-line supervisors was proposed; and (4) The Federal office initiated procedures to simplify and speed payment processing. Future plans include developing additional programs to recruit top college students into the program. Appendixes
