Dear PoliceOne Member,

In this edition of the Trainers eNews, we examine three issues that have vexed the police trainer for years. Duane Wolfe addresses the 'Goldilocks' every cadre of trainees seems to have—the cop who has to have everything 'just right' or it all just falls apart.

Dan Danaher focuses in on how we can truly train officers for the fight they'll face on the street, not the simulated fight they undertake in the matroom.

Meanwhile, I talk with several police trainers about how we can be better at creating training scenarios that include multiple skill sets — like driving, shooting, handcuffing, and report writing, all of which frequently happens on a single call.
