In this article, the author analyzes the genesis and the development of the enrollment and training system for the low-ranking personnel of Interior Ministry police. The reform of the training sector was probably the most important among those that affected the police of the Republic in the years following the economic boom. The author shows how the Public security, moving from a small and inefficient basic training system, equipped itself with an articulated and efficient school system during the sixties, managing to structure complex and new training programs and study materials. As the author demonstrates, despite this massive transformation of the training system (which in part also affected the recruitment methods), the police failed to provide the low-ranking personnel with adequate training to respond to the challenges of a rapidly-changing society. This was mostly due to organizational and structural dysfunctions that excessively compressed the training time and undermined the efficiency of the new police academies, besides a poor selection of enlisted personnel.
Keywords: police, Interior Ministry police, recruitment, police training, police academies, police manuals.
