This paper looks at the management of in-service training within the Turkish National Police.
This paper examines organizational perspectives on the management of the in-service training function within the Turkish National Police. It is based on themes that emerged during an examination of Turkish academic and professional literature relating to policing and police training. The emerging training-related issues are grouped under the following thematic areas: (1) policymaking and central planning, (2) training needs analysis, (3) training research and development, (4) training delivery, (5) training evaluation, (6) employment of both training staff and trainees, and (7) inspection practices relating to the training function. The themes revealed that the organizational management of the in-service training function in the Turkish National Police (TNP) seems to be largely disintegrated and poorly aligned.
