The ability of a law enforcement agency to meet current and long-range goals and objectives in an efficient and effective manner is largely dependent upon the level of skill, knowledge and ability members bring to their individual assignments, duties and responsibilities. Therefore, law enforcement agency should provide, to the degree possible, counseling, training and professional development opportunities and assistance to members in choosing, preparing, entering and progressing in agency job assignments and job specialties as well as individual professional growth opportunities that will promote production, efficiency and effectiveness in job performance and improve the overall level of job satisfaction.

These documents define potential career development programs, which are designed to improve the skills, knowledge and abilities (SKA) of all personnel in order to successfully meet departmental tasks and objectives.
