The challenges confronting today’s officers are unprecedented, and only through quality training can we provide officers with the skills they need to be both effective and safe. A trainer’s ability, commitment and leadership greatly affect officers in the field, but this vital role is often overlooked within individual police departments and policing as a whole.
Each year, Law Officer demonstrates its commitment to training through its Trainer of the Year Award, which honors an individual who has demonstrated outstanding skills and made lasting contributions to the law enforcement profession.
This award is open to active law enforcement trainers. A nomination must be submitted by someone who has direct knowledge of the nominee’s skills and abilities. The winner will be selected based on the following criteria:
- Training ability: Nominees should be outstanding in their ability to train and convey the core objectives of their subject. They should be innovative and demonstrate a commitment to maintaining their skills and knowledge by staying current on developing techniques and technologies.
- Leadership: Nominees should have a demonstrated ability to lead by example, inspiration and dedication.
- Safety: Nominees will be known for conducting training that includes adequate safeguards to minimize the chance of preventable injuries.
- Interpersonal communication: Nominees should exhibit strong interpersonal communication skills.
- Long-term commitment: Nominees should have a demonstrated history of providing or facilitating quality training and be known for going the extra distance to serve the law enforcement community. Service beyond assigned duties is noteworthy and will be strongly considered.
