400 Hour Curriculum

Home > Departments > Training > C.C.S.P.D. > 400 Hour Curriculum

In 2004, the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board (ILETSB) embarked upon a major project to revise the job-related training curriculum for entry-level police officers throughout the state, and to update the certification examination used to assess trainee mastery of basic training learning objectives. The project was substantially complete by mid 2005. Over the next year a number of comparatively minor changes were made to the new curriculum. These changes were consolidated in this volume, resulting in the 2007 Police Officer Basic Training Curriculum. The 2007 curriculum supersedes the 2005 curriculum and is effective upon receipt. This replaces Volume III of the original three volume report.

 The volumes in the report are as follows:

 Volume I: Administrative Report (2005)

Volume II: Required Worker Behaviours Report, Related Schedules, and Checklists (2005)

 Volume III: 2007 Police Officer Basic Training Curriculum

This unit will be divided into two phases for development, each of which will run concurrently. The first phase of each day’s activity will begin with an exercise and warm up period. This period may be integrated with the “Physical Skills and Personal Fitness” unit, or it may be independent.

The second phase of each instruction period will concentrate upon the development of personal defense skills associated with law enforcement functions, including techniques for searching suspects, use of temporary restraint devices, self-protection of the officer and others through personal weapons, physical means, etc.

The primary purpose of this period is to develop firing skills and to develop student proficiency in combat shooting. Classroom instruction and tactical demonstration will include range safety, proper grip, stance, sighting, trigger finger position, trigger manipulation, weapon loading, unloading, and clearing malfunctions. This unit will also further develop students’ ability to handle handguns safely.
