This article presents survey data from research carried out as part of a broader project aiming to develop management training for senior officers in the Ukrainian police. Findings, which are based on data about the experiences, attitudes, and priorities of currently serving police officers, are used to highlight the key areas on which future curriculum development might be focused. To date, most training for Ukrainian police managers has been weighted too heavily toward learning the law rather than developing the skills and competencies necessary to manage people effectively. It is argued that as a consequence of such differences, overseas assistance should be firmly grounded in detailed local research in order to fully understand the context within which it takes place
