Many organizations are using the very effective Police Training Officer Program (PTO) to train new officers.
This method of field training incorporates community policing and problem solving principles and calls for the frequent creation, editing and exchange of documents by trainees, trainers, evaluators, and supervisors involved in the program. A PTO program based on paper forms or collections of word processing documents can however be a grueling and time consuming effort, and prompt assessment of trainees is difficult for program administrators.

 

Our Police Training Officer Software (PTO) radically simplifies the processes associated with PTO training, offers instant access to digital PTO documents, and improves reporting accuracy and efficiency. It provides the central control and security you need in an easy to use multi-user document management system and reduces effort expended on managing the process so you can concentrate on training and evaluation. The system supplies all of the integrated tools you need to create, catalog, edit, spell-check, evaluate, print, secure, and archive your PTO Documents.

 

Field training requirements can vary widely from one organization to the next. That's why our PTO software allows users to customize many aspects of the system, making it the most flexible solution available.

BENEFITS

  • Enforces Standards: PTO documents are formatted consistently and automatically, making document review and editing both easier and faster.

  • Manages Document Flow: Users see only the documents that pertain to them, all others are suppressed. Documents needing attention (work, rework, submission, approval) are visually flagged so  each person knows where to focus their effort. This keeps the process moving and helps reduce incomplete documents, missing signatures and other loose ends.

  • Flexible/Customizable: Standard PTO document templates are provided to get you up and running fast. Customize these templates to fit your needs and preferences, even create new user-defined documents to extend the standard curriculum.

  • Easy to Use: A simple and intuitive interface presents users with only the functions they need to fulfill their role in your PTO program. Irrelevant menus, forms, and reports are suppressed. Little training is required for operation.

  • Secure: Easily manage security through the software rather than setting constraints on network folders and individual documents. Software access requires a personal password. Access to features and documents within the software is determined automatically by the user's role in your PTO program: Trainee; Training Officer; Evaluator; Supervisor. "Electronic Signatures" let you know precisely who has approved each document. Automatically locks documents to prevent further changes once a digital signature is added.

  • Centralized Database: All documents are stored in a central database for multi-user accessibility, complete security, backup protection, and control. No individual files to manage or keep track of. You have one comprehensive depository of all field training data for historical reference.
