The Police Academy curriculum incorporates community policing strategies with a strong emphasis on Scenario-Based Learning (SBL) activities throughout the training. The course serves officers from municipal police departments, county sheriffs' offices, school and university police departments and home detention units WHO DO NOT HAVE AN ENTRY LEVEL TRAINING PROGRAM. Instruction includes: constitutional law; organizational principles and law; patrol tactics; traffic laws and enforcements; criminal law; criminal investigations; emergency medical care; radio communications; report writing and composition; crime prevention; crisis intervention; protective strategies and tactics; emergency vehicle operations; prisoner processing and security; courtroom preparation and testimony; health and wellness; terrorism and weapons of mass destruction; police officer firearms training and qualification. Each week is devoted to the problem-solving process to practical police problems. There are labs where students individually or in teams can develop skills such as interpersonal communication, leadership, evidence collection, crime scene photography, fingerprinting, warrant applications, and relevant federal, state, and local police topical issues that may present themselves during their time at the Academy. This entry level program was conceived and designed as an affordable and accessible alternative for those smaller municipalities of Maryland Law Enforcement that are seeking an academically-innovative and adult learning-based approach to police recruit training.
An outstanding academic feature of the Training Commission's PELTP is the opportunity for graduates to obtain 36 college credits from the Community Colleges of Baltimore County. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
