Abstract: THESE GUIDELINES PROVIDE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPLETE TRAINING PLAN WHICH TAKES INTO CONSIDERATION: (1) THE DEFINITION OF GOALS AND OBJECTIVES; (2) THE SUBJECT MATTER AND TRAINING DELIVERY METHODS; (3) SPACE AND ENVIRONMENT; AND (4) COSTS. THE GUIDELINES EMPHASIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF MANAGEMENT, PLANNING, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TRAINING PLAN. THE RECOMMENDED INITIAL STEP IS THE DESIGNATION OF A TRAINING OFFICER TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRAINING PLAN DEVELOPMENT. THE PLAN ITSELF SHOULD INCORPORATE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF TRAINING AND MANAGEMENT, INCLUDING ESTIMATES OF LOGISTICAL SUPPORT REQUIREMENTS AND BUDGETARY IMPLICATIONS. THE PLAN SHOULD ALSO PROVIDE DETAILS ON THE SUBJECTS TO BE COVERED IN THE PROGRAM AND ON WHEN THE TRAINING IS TO BE OFFERED. THE RECOMMENDED PRINCIPAL ELEMENTS OF THE PLAN ARE: (1) A DEFINITION OF THE PLAN'S GOAL, INCLUDING IDENTIFICATION OF TARGET GROUPS; (2) A STATEMENT OF THE OBJECTIVES FOR EACH TRAINING BLOCK; (3) A DETAILED DISCUSSION OF THE SUBJECT MATTER TO BE COVERED, INCLUDING THE MANNER IN WHICH THE TRAINING IS TO BE DELIVERED; (4) IDENTIFICATION OF TRAINING RESOURCES, SUCH AS EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS, AND PUBLICATIONS, AS WELL AS THE NAMES AND BACKGROUNDS OF THE INSTRUCTORS; (5) A COST SCHEDULE IDENTIFYING THE COSTS OF EACH COURSE AND THE COSTS OF THE OVERALL TRAINING PLAN; AND (6) HOURLY SCHEDULES FOR EACH COURSE. THE IMPORTANCE AND VALUE OF A SYSTEMATIC TRAINING EVALUATION AS A MANAGEMENT TOOL IS EXAMINED. IN EVALUATING A TRAINING PROGRAM, BASELINE DATA SHOULD BE DEVELOPED AGAINST WHICH DATA OBTAINED BY TRAINEE EXAMINATION ARE THEN COMPARED. THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTORS SHOULD ALSO BE MEASURED. SUGGESTED COURT SECURITY LESSON GUIDES ARE PROVIDED REGARDING THE TRIAL PROCESS, THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE, THE BAILIFF, LIABILITY, PRISONER TRANSPORT, FIREARMS PROFICIENCY AND SAFETY, EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS, BOMB THREAT RESPONSE, HOSTAGE SITUATION CONTROL, CROWD CONTROL, PHYSICAL SECURITY, DEFENSIVE TACTICS, HIGH-RISK TRIAL PROCEDURES, PERSONAL SECURITY PROCEDURES, AND SPECIAL SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS.
