Each U.S. state sets its own training standards for police. Nationwide, police recruits spend an average of 633 hours in training, of which 20 hours, on average, are dedicated to teaching public administration-related topics like professional ethics, cultural competency and communications. States in purple are right at that average in terms of public administration training for future police. Those in green offer either somewhat more or substantially more such training to cadets. Those in red require future police to spend either somewhat less or substantially less time than average learning about public administration.
