1995 CAPS Training Evaluation Report

Marianne Kaiser

This paper describes an evaluation of CAPS training for police officers. The purpose of the training was to teach them about their changing roles and responsibilities under CAPS, with an emphasis on learning the skills needed to be an effective team member. The evaluation team employed three different methods to examine the nature of training and the performance of the trainers. The methods included observation of training, police questionnaires, and personal interviews conducted with samples of trainees, trainers, and supervisors. The report concludes with a set of recommendations based on the evaluation.
