Annotation: A FEBRUARY 1973 REPORT ON AN EVALUATION OF THE INDIANA UNIVERSITY POLICE ACADEMY CADET PROGRAM WHICH PROVIDES ON-THE-JOB LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING TO STUDENTS AS A PART-TIME SUPPLEMENT TO FULL-TIME COLLEGE STUDIES.
Abstract: THE EVALUATOR INTERVIEWED ACADEMY AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATORS, AND CADETS, EXAMINED DOCUMENTS AND RECORDS, AND MADE RECOMMENDATIONS. IT WAS URGED THAT CADETS WEARING FIREARMS ON CAMPUS - IN THEIR CAPACITY AS PART-TIME SECURITY OFFICERS - DO SO AS UNOBTRUSIVELY AS POSSIBLE, AND THAT THEIR TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS BE STRESSED. IT WAS ALSO SUGGESTED THAT CADETS BE ASSIGNED TO PATROL AND INVESTIGATIVE DUTIES. THE PROGRAM WAS SAID TO BE OF CONSIDERABLE OVERALL VALUE IN PRODUCING ENTHUSIASTIC AND QUALIFIED RECRUITS.
