How to better train trainers to meet the needs of today’s police recruits.

“One of the biggest evolutions in field training is that the program molds to the student as adults learn in different ways,” says Dan Greene, the executive director of the National Association of Field Training Officers (NAFTO). As a former FTO and FTO supervisor, Dan knows what FTOs need to become better trainers and educators. At the recent NAFTO conference in Louisville, Kentucky, Policing Matters host Jim Dudley spoke with Dan about the evolution of FTO training in law enforcement.

Sandy police officer back in Utah after helping Kentucky tornado victims

The NAFTO Executive Board and staff could not be more proud to serve along side our Secretary, Graham Tinius. Graham’s personal sacrifice to respond to help those in need in Kentucky is a fine example of his character. Graham is a highly committed man of service.
