Description

The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association administers the COPS Training Initiative for PCCD with the goal of increasing the number of municipalities that utilize proactive law enforcement methods. The COPS training program evaluation will determine if the training initiative has increased the establishment of community policing and problem oriented policing services as intended by PCCD and PCPA. The first phase of the study examined what "best practices" exist in the program and developed a set of performance measures that can be used as an ongoing assessment tool by PCPA during future training sessions. The second phase of the project involved conducting an impact evaluation of the COPS program. The researchers utilized several methods to accomplish these tasks including mailing surveys, site visits, and personal interviews.
