Dear PoliceOne Member,

The officers who protected President Reagan from an assassination attempt all those years ago were neither slow nor complacent. In this month's eNews, we dig back into the video archives to review their actions and show what you can learn today. We also offer tips on how to make training stick in the minds of your students.

How do you make yourself the best trainer? Don't stop learning. Ever. Here's how we suggest you go about it. And our last exclusive focuses on a court case that shows training policy is more than just policy — you have to actually teach it.

4 ways to help trainees 'make it stick'

By Joel Shults, PoliceOne Columnist
Excellent trainers provide context to give the material some meaning to the learner. Without some connection to the material, students will have little success keeping the information in their long-term memory. Report writing = boring
