Title: Assessing Employee Training Practices at Kumasi Police Training School
Authors: Boakye, Ansah
Issue Date: 30-Jul-2015
Abstract: The study sought to assess employees training practices at Kumasi Police Training School (KPTS).The underlying problem for the research has been that, despite huge sums of money spent on employees’ training, the Police Administration has not been successful in improving the knowledge and skills of the employees and the recent criticism by both the print and electronic media on the conduct and professionalism of the police personnel is a clear testimony to this fact. This has drawn the researcher’s attention to the assessment of the employees’ training practices at KPTS. The descriptive survey method was used to solicit information from the respondents. Data were obtained through the administration of questionnaires. From the research findings, it was established that, the training needs identification of the employees are given the necessary attention before trainees are selected for training at the KPTS. The training practices at KPTS were on-the-job and off-the-job training. The strengths of employees’ training practices are their involvement in the training practices. Training practices at KPTS are designed to meet the expectations of the trainees at KPTS, however some weaknesses were found out. These include lack of equipment and logistics for the training and the time allotted for the training programmes are not adequate. Despite all these weaknesses, there is positive impact of training on employees’ performance. In order to make training practices more effective, it has been recommended that the police administration should allocate enough money to acquire equipments and logistics needed for the training since effectiveness of training depends on the availability of these equipment and logistics.
