From this week’s assigned readings, you have learned about how a police
department under consent decree
differs from that of a police department addressing standard training needs.
Compare and contrast these two training styles. What are the objectives and
training design for each of these two types of training styles? What are the
foci and restrictions of a police department under consent
decree? Who, when, and under what circumstances is it appropriate
to issue consent decree? Do you believe consent decree is effective at
addressing training deficiencies in an organization? Why or why not?
Support your claims
with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and
properly cite any references.
