Exemplary Policing Training for all ranks

Training for police officers and administrators

Police ethics trainingModern policing takes place in a risk-management minefield. In addition to the challenges officers face on the street, every aspect of police administration from management, recruiting, training, and discipline to the handling of on- and off-duty misconduct is subject to scrutiny and criticism on ethical grounds.

In collaboration with expert practitioners, peace officers, and its many partners in the field of policing, Josephson Institute has developed highly focused training courses to help police officers, managers, and administrators perceive, prevent, and resolve ethical problems.
