Adherence to basic and advanced training and agency standard operating procedures ensures that routine police responsibilities are consistently completed to their fullest appropriate ends. Deviation from training and policies often leads to a sub-standard work product that is detrimental to advancing initial call for police service assignment. The public’s perception of an inattentive or uncaring police officer and a lackadaisical effort to conduct “minor” investigations raises a multitude of concerns regarding competency and trust.
