can meet several goals. According to O’Keefe (2004), “training can increase
productivity, improve morale, keep an organizational culture positive and optimistic,
and even serve to protect and reduce the overall exposure to civil liability”
(p. 192). In service training can also keep officers skills sharpened and learn
new knowledge and techniques. Instructional methodology is important because it
provides different ways for adults to learn. It has been found that the
traditional methods of learning, such as lectures, are not the best way for
adults (O' Keefe, 2004). With instructional methodology, instructors can use
several ways. The first would be to use role playing. Role playing can help
because it enables officers to get a hands on experience without being in the
field. Another method would be the use of simulations. Simulations can be seen
as a version of role playing but on a much larger scale. Simulations may be
where officers are acting out a situation in the field and teaches them how to
react to whatever is occurring. While living in Washington State, the military
base would conduct active shooter drills. These drills would teach the soldiers
how to respond if this were to happen. Instructional debriefing is an important
training technique because it gives a chance to stay involved and give feedback
about the scenario. It may also help them to understand why certain actions
were taken. Instructional debriefing can be used to understand what needed to
be learned, review what was learned, and how to improve the training.
