Police Accountability Through Performance Appraisal Systems
Performance evaluations for police and public safety officers in higher education are often generic and misaligned with the actual job functions and critical tasks associated with policing/public safety in the postsecondary environment. This course will assist supervisors and managers in establishing methods for increasing individual officer effectiveness through the use of evidence-based performance evaluations that are specific to campus policing/public safety. Supervisors and managers will learn how to develop, engage, and assess critical job tasks of their departmental personnel. *Attendees of this course will be provided with a sample evaluation tool that can be used for patrol officers.
Some of the key topics that will be covered include:
- Function of performance evaluations;
- Identification of critical tasks of police and public safety officers in a postsecondary environment;
- How to construct and use an evidence-based performance evaluation model; and
- Key considerations in assessing police/public safety performance.
Audience: Campus Police and Public Safety Command Staff and Supervisory Personnel
This course will be taught by higher education experts who have a background and expertise in developing and implementing effective performance appraisals in their Public Safety and Law Enforcement agencies on college campuses.
