Abstract: Recruitment goals are to employ individuals of high character and to prepare candidates for police exams. Training seeks to provide potential officers with knowledge of laws and techniques and to develop their analytical abilities, social understanding, attitudes necessary for exemplary conduct, and physical skill and coordination. Police educators are expected to teach, to develop programs and teaching aids, and to conduct research. School administrators must keep schools running smoothly, evaluate personnel needs, and clearly define educational policy. Recruitment issues discussed include cycles of police personnel needs; general and particular requirements for police personnel at various levels, including administrative personnel; origins and education of recruits; and recruiting women. Discussions on police training relate to general policy objectives of training programs and emphasis on the latest pedagogical approaches; curricula for basic training of officers at various levels; purposes of continuing education; the organizational structure of the French police school system; descriptions of the separate police schools; functions of the Police Service for International Technical Cooperation; and the role of the Central Sports Service. Tables and illustrations are furnished. --in French.
