Purdue Global Chapter 5 Police Training and Education Academies Assignment

  1. First, read Chapter 5, “Police Training and Education”. Take notes of key elements, qualities, and dispositions you feel lead to high quality police officers.
  2. Read the journal article, Factors Affecting the Decision of Police Recruits to “Drop Out” of Police Work. Be sure to add to or update your list of key elements and qualities.
  3. You will then need to conduct an online search for three (3) different police academy entrance qualifications. The academies do not have to all be local, but at least two must be from your city and state. Remember you are not documenting the requirements of a police dept but the requirements to get into the police academy.
  4. In a formal paper, create a chart of the your three police academy entrance qualifications. Some suggestions are to include minimum/maximum age to get in, how many hours of instruction, testing you might have to complete to gain entry to the academy,etc. You should have more information that what was suggested here.
  5. Then, compare and contrast the differences of each academy if any, in comparison to the list of key elements you wrote down from chapter 5. In your response, discuss how these qualifications can lead to quality police officers citing specific core police practices. Be thorough in your response. (DO NOT just create a chart. This should be in a formal essay paper format with a chart included)
  6. Be sure to cite your sources using APA. You may want to refer to the Purdue Online Writing Lab, http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
