Military Style Training In Law Enforcement

Satisfactory Essays
I believe the military-style training positively effects the recruitment in law enforcement. When attempting to select a new recruit, it is difficult to gauge their flaws with only a few moments of contact prior to their hire. The academy provides an opportunity for the department to see what type of person they have hired and if they have the will power and self-discipline to do the job. I have seen it at my own department where a recruit was hired, sent to the academy, and then gone within the first day. Police departments across the nation could use a more military style approach in their training to instill the warrior mindset to persevere through bad situations in all new recruits (Stoughton, 2015).
