Annotation: This series of articles on police training focuses on a physical assessment test, policewomen fitness levels, training-related injuries, police nutrition, training for trust-building, paraprofessional training, recruit training, curriculum development, and research training.
Abstract: A description of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center's (FLETC) physical assessment test is followed by a review of findings on policewomen's attitude and fitness achievement levels determined by FLETC's Physical Efficiency Battery. The prevention, causes, and treatment of training-related injuries are discussed along with the importance and development of good officer nutrition. One article notes that trust-building is important for productivity in a police organization and urges training in trust-building. Another article describes the recruitment, selection, training, equipment, functions, and restrictions of police service technicians in the Memphis Police Department (Tennessee), who perform noncriminal police functions. Following a description of the Largo Police Department's (Florida) recruit training program, FLETC's curriculum development for State and local training is presented. The final article describes the National Institute of Justice's Visiting Fellowship Program, which guides rising police management professionals in the development of research skills.
