Furthermore, how police view themselves and their work can be successfully molded and shaped through selection practices and training irrespective of the long-standing culture within policing and to constructively strike at the root of dysfunctional selection and academy systems.

A new paradigm, one that systemically incorporates and consistently addresses all areas of selecting and preparing our police, only occurs over a period of time. Shifting the mind-set of the policing institution is a theme that threads most past and contemporary research and experience together for nearly a century. At times in our history this has been painfully clear.

The struggle, challenges and difficulty in how this may effectively be accomplished has always been the question and collective problem. The systemic model designed and used in Kentucky began to effectively address this question and problem. It continues to fine tune as it further advances the process of changing how police view themselves and their work under the principles of the Broken Mirror Theory.

Kentucky is indeed unique when it comes to how police are trained to think about policing. No other state demands the level or quality of training methods Kentucky has adopted. No other state has the distinctive legislatively approved funding mechanism to support the effort. No other public safety training program carries the distinction of pioneering by becoming the first nationally-accredited, state-wide police training program and now carries a second accreditation from a separate national accrediting body.

No other state has the combined experience and education of faculty to deliver this style of training. In strict comparison, no other state requires as many basic training hours to become certified police officers and few police training centers around the nation have the state-of-the-art facilities and appropriate environment in which to conduct the serious business of police training. This book chronicles the history of the evolution of this work, provides insight into the details of how it came about, and why.

It also offers many reasons why this approach to constructively evolving how police view themselves and their work cannot be accomplished through quick fixes or political tinkering.
