Course Description
The PTO program addresses the changing philosophies required for effective policing in America today. It is specifically mentioned in the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing as a potential model to teach new officers how to think proactively with their community through the use of adult learning strategies. The program is adaptable to teach and evaluate officers based on your organizational needs.

This course prepares participants to become post-academy trainers in the PTO program. If your agency does not yet have a program, we recommend sending your implementation team for full immersion. Participants will learn how to use and teach community policing strategies, emotional intelligence, and problem-based learning. Each of the program components will be thoroughly taught and practiced, and agency specific evaluations will be developed. This challenging course teaches program mechanics, training foundations, organizational leadership, and personal accountability through community learning.

Topics covered include:
Journaling for accurate self-assessment
Teaching adult learners
PTO program structure and implementation
Problem Based Learning Exercises
Emotional intelligence in police work
Designing/using agency-specific evaluations
Anchoring community policing, legitimacy and procedural justice
Coaching and mentoring skills
Coaching Training Reports (CTRs)
Learning Activity Packages (LAPS) to enhance training
Neighborhood Portfolio Exercise
Objectives
To learn the PTO structure and how the components support community policing.
To learn through adult-based learning strategies, and how to teach using them.
To demonstrate competency in each of the topics covered.
To design effective evaluations that address a trainee's skills, knowledge, application, and ability to work within the department's goals.
To learn how to apply recruit training in the community through a series of real-life problem solving activities.
To recognize inhibitors to learning and learn strategies for overcoming these.
To promote the practice of using community members as partners in problem solving, accountability, and resource development.
