The Criminal Investigator Training Program (CITP) provides, on an interagency basis, a program of instruction that fulfills all the basic criminal investigative training requirements necessary for responsible and competent job performance.  Rather than being agency-specific, the program addresses common knowledge, skills, and abilities that are expected of all investigators.  In today's changing world, criminal investigators are faced with a variety of situations that, in addition to traditional law enforcement skills, require an awareness of and expertise in human behavior, modern technology, cultural sensitivity, law, and other interdisciplinary approaches to effective law enforcement.  The CITP is designed to meet these training needs as identified through systematic program monitoring in the form of validation studies and continuous research, which includes feedback from partner organizations.
