Abstract:

Many law enforcement officers are serving longer before retirement and therefore trainers are faced with the problem of providing quality in-service training for an aging group of law enforcement officers. Traditional teaching techniques were developed from the pedagogical theories used to educate children. Malcom Knowles and others have argued that learning styles may change as we age. Knowles argued that Andragogical teaching methods that emphasized the principles adult education were more appropriate in teaching adult learners. Law enforcement officers enter police service usually sometime after their 21st birthday. They often remain in police service until they turn 65. In order for these law enforcement officers to maintain their professional skills and re-certify their licenses as a law enforcement officers they must complete in-service training hours. This study examines how large of a population of law enforcement officers currently serving is 40+ years old and explores possible andragogical solutions to existing in-service training methodologies.
