On the basis of the scientific literature analysis, the peculiarities of the professional competence formation of the future patrol officers were determined. The specifics of the service activity of patrol officers were considered. The original methodology for formation of professional competence of modern police officers was substantiated and its effectiveness was tested. The essence of this methodology was to introduce simulated situational tasks, which aim at forming the professional skills and abilities of future police officers. The pedagogical experiment involved students of the course of primary vocational training applied in 2018 (n=183) who were studying at the center of primary vocational training “Police Academy” of the National Academy of Internal Affairs (Kyiv, Ukraine). An experimental (EG, n=93) and control (CG, n=90) groups were formed. The efficiency of the original methodology was evaluated by cognitive and operational criteria. The cognitive criterion was determined by the following indicators: “Knowledge of the legislative unit” and “Knowledge of professional and practical course”. The operational criterion was assessed by the next indicators: “Professional and practical skills formation” and “The effectiveness of solving scenarios”. The results of the pedagogical experiment indicated the greater efficiency of the original methodology in comparison with the traditional one. A significant (р<0.05-0.001) improvement of the indicators “Knowledge of professional and practical course”, “Professional and practical skills formation” and “The effectiveness of solving scenarios” was designated. The positive influence of the original methodology on the efficiency of the professional activity of police officers after one year of service was established.
