You are a member of the agency head's command staff. In your role, you help to develop in-service training for your agency's sworn officers. As an active member of the training team, you frequently participate and directly lead in these training sessions.

Your agency head asked you to develop two new in-service training programs for the agency for the next year. These can be 1) a mandatory training for ALL sworn personnel without regard to rank or 2) an opportunity for additional / new training for sworn personnel seeking to specialize in a role within your agency, change assignment, or advance in rank. Considering any concerns you have or deficiencies you perceive in the training and management of a public safety organization, what classes / topics will you include, how many hours would the training be, and would the training be mandatory or voluntary? Explain your rationale for all of these decisions.
