Dear Police1 Member,

Nurturing your professional development requires the same level of commitment as maintaining your firearms skills or defensive tactics techniques. Using checklists is an easy way to measure your progress and identify areas of improvement.

To that end, Police1 offers several checklists officers can download to add to their career development toolkit:

Active supervision checklist: Monitor your progress as you participate in Police1's Active Supervision Challenge.

Knowledge, skills & abilities matrix: Rate your readiness level for a supervisory position.

Surviving your first 100 days as a sergeant infographic: Follow the steps outlined in this chart.

Stay safe,

The Police1 Team
