Once hired, the recruit attends a police training academy (ranging from about 400 hours to almost a year, depending upon jurisdiction) to study a wide range of topics, most of which the state Police Officer Standards and Training (POST) Board or equivalent body has mandated.
Nationally, the Police Officer Standards and Training Commission should evaluate the topic for inclusion in current diversity training programs required for all officers.
The roots of many of these manuals lie in laws passed in the 1950's, when police officer standards and training commissions decreed that police operations should be detailed in writing.
