Turning the police into a learning organisation: integrating working and learning

Paper presented by Otto Adang at International scientific-theoretical conference: " World experience on police training and its implementation in Ukraine", organised by the Dnipropetrovsk State University of Internal Affairs Abstract: The police is a prime example of a knowledge-intensive organisation whose effectiveness and legitimacy in society are largely determined by its capacity to find and apply concrete and effective solutions to continually new and often unpredictable problems. Whilst working and learning are still completely separated in many situations, new concepts are needed where they are related and interwoven more and more. In this paper some initiatives are discussed where working and learning are increasingly integrated: - the new police education in the Netherlands - a European pilot with peer review evaluation teams
