The Ewing Police Department believes that by providing quality training to our officers we will raise the standard of service to the citizens we are obligated to serve.
The in-service training of police officers has always been encouraged. Continued law enforcement education will enable an officer to perform more efficiently and more safely, and is essential in limiting liability in civil actions arising from officer’s activities.
Some in-service training is mandated by the county prosecutor, the Attorney General, or through various state or federal statutes or rules.
There are a limitless number of topics for in-service training including new laws, court decisions, internal policies and procedures and defensive driving. Although there is merit to this training, there are no mandates identified for requiring this additional training. The Chief of Police must determine what additional training is appropriate for the department in light of availability of resources.
