Police Recruit Termination

Terminating an employee is never a desirable option, but sometimes it is necessary for the efficiency of a company or organization. When it comes to police recruits, it is imperative that only the most qualified advance into the force, for the safety of the public, as well as the rest of the police force. Unfortunately, terminating a police recruit can be a complicated task, in order to avoid a wrongful termination lawsuit. Lawsuits regarding termination are more common than you’d think, and can waste precious time and money in legal proceedings. There are, however, steps that can be taken to help prevent wrongful termination suits. Reasons for Termination To help avoid a lawsuit it is important to have specific reasons for termination. So what are the most common reasons for termination? Incomplete or poor reporting skills is one of the most common reasons for police recruit termination. Police reporting is an essential part of a police officer’s job, and recruits who are unable to properly report an incident will unfortunately not be able to continue with the force.

3 Reasons to Switch to Electronic Police Training Records

As someone familiar with law enforcement from experience, at MdE we know that keeping track of training can be a huge pain. There is training for recruits and training for in-service officers, each with different requirements to keep in mind. Then there are employees who miss training and need to make up for it. What a nightmare it can be for the training coordinator to dig through a pile of papers, trying to schedule everyone without critical overlaps. We think that when it comes to police training and employee records management, there is no better way to approach it than with specialized software. And here are three main reasons you should switch from paper to digital. Instant Access to the Training Status Looking for information is so much easier on a computer.

On a computer, you can instantly see the status of everyone in the training queue and their progress. But if you have specialized software, such as our employee records management suit, you can even set training requirements and get automatically notified when […]
