Annotation: THIS REPORT COVERS THE OCTOBER 1965 INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM FOR HEADS OF POLICE TRAINING COLLEGES AT THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL POLICE ORGANIZATION HEADQUARTERS IN PARIS (INTERPOL), TO DISCUSS COLLEGE-RELATED TOPICS.
Abstract: VARIOUS COUNTRIES INDICATED THAT THEIR TRAINING COLLEGES ARE DESIGNED TO FIT IN WITH THEIR COUNTRY'S POLICE ORGANIZATION AND SYSTEM OF ADMINISTRATION. THE UNITED STATES WAS THE ONLY COUNTRY WHERE TRAINING COLLEGES WERE NOT ORGANIZED UNDER ONE AUTHORITY, BUT RATHER SPREAD OUT AMONG FEDERAL AGENCIES AND UNIVERSITIES. THE SYMPOSIUM MEMBERS AGREED THAT TRAINING SHOULD BE STANDARDIZED AND CENTRALIZED; THAT VOLUNTEER INSTRUCTORS SHOULD HAVE A MONTH'S TRAINING PERIOD FOR TEACHING TECHNIQUES; AND THAT POLICE OFFICERS SHOULD RETURN TO ACTIVE SERVICE AFTER 2 TO 4 YEARS. IT WAS AGREED THAT CONTACT BETWEEN STAFF AND TRAINEES IS BENEFICIAL. SEVERAL COUNTRIES DISCUSSED THEIR STUDENT REGULATIONS, TUITION, SUBJECTS, TEACHING METHODS, ADVANCED TRAINING, AND TECHNICAL COOPERATION ON TRAINING. THE SYMPOSIUM CONCLUDED THAT THE ATTENTION OF GOVERNMENTS AND POLICE AUTHORITIES BE DRAWN TO THE IMPORTANCE OF THE POLICE TRAINING ON WHICH THE SAFETY AND THE STABILITY OF THE SOCIETY DEPEND IN A PERIOD WHEN LAWS AND TECHNIQUES ARE CHANGING RAPIDLY.
