This chapter provides an overview of the law enforcement training program and the requirements for students to become sworn officers; gives students instruction on basic criminal justice values and ethics; defines sexual harassment and ways to avoid compromising interactions with other officers and the public; and emphasizes the command structure within a criminal justice agency.
