The PTO program addresses the changing philosophies required for effective policing in America today. It is specifically mentioned in the Presidents 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. 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.
