can you please look over a paper for me, and check that all the questions in italic are answered make changes necessary thanks.
What are the significant differences regarding the size of the
department and the focus of community oriented policing? What changes,
in terms of increasing the size of the department and the available time
for commitment to training, will be involved in the development of
trainees? How are training officers selected? Finally, provide your
opinion regarding the best program for achieving the selected
Police Department and Lowell Police Department have several differences in
structure and training of their officers. Reno Police Department has more
officers than Lowell Police Department. Reno Police Department has adopted the modified
version of F.T.O and disregarded its traditional Community-Oriented Policing
and Problem Solving (C.O.P.P.S). Lowell’s PD on the other hand is embracing
Community-Oriented Policing and Problem Solving and left the F.T.O which it
used in the past.
Reno Police Department, gives two academies per year at
the Regional Training Center for Public Safety and each academy graduates 10-15
officers.Officers receive 12 hours of class room training. Majority of the 32,
Police Training Officers had prior training with the Field Training Officers.
Lowell’s Police Department academy is annual and runs for 25 weeks.
Approximately nine officers graduate from this academy. The Lowell’s Police
curriculum is based on C.O.P.P.S. Lowell’s Police Department had a tough time
in convincing officers to volunteer and become P.T.O.s (Police Training
Officers). Half of those chosen had gone through F.T.O’s and were trained on
Lowell’s Police Department selects its P.T.O officers
using the following criteria; Must have at least a three year period of service
with Lowell Police Department, the trainer should have favorable training
attitude, the trainer should not have had displine issues over the past year.
The P.T.O.s are selected after the P.T.O sergeants evaluated each applicant.
Reno police department requires the following criteria to
be fulfilled by a P.T.O, three years of service in law enforcement, Prior
training experience, Demonstrated COPPS abilities, Knowledge of adult-learning
principles. The selection process involves, making a departmental wise
announcement, requesting each candidates resume, convening a candidate
assessment board, evaluation of the candidate’s history and personal training,
evaluation of the candidate’s leadership skills and conducting a suitability
review of the candidate.
In conclusion the departments should consider the new
improved version of the F.T.O which has proven useful. A strong foundation
includes a well-designed ﬁeld training manual, written objectives, standardized
evaluation guidelines, motivated ﬁeld training ofﬁcers, and leaders willing to
keep the program up-to-date and to never compromise its integrity (Beaver, R.W.
2006). With this it is important for the P.T.O’s to ensure they give competent
