Education is an ongoing process and realized by the occurrence of current learning. The aim of formal education is to help students gain knowledge and material-moral values requested by the community in their current and future lives. The main objective of the police training of police cadets in police training institutions is to help police officers gain specific psychological, physiological and academic abilities that they will need while performing their duties. In the literature, it appears that there are different theories of learning. According to the cognitive learning theory based on processing information, learning occurs by processing external stimulants within mental and internal processes. Affective learning is about being interested in the thing to be learned so it is about internal desire. According to behaviorists, learning is continuous changes in relatively permanent behaviors that are seen after experiences and practices. The main discussion of the study is based on "the feasibility of learning theories in police training in the top title of the behavioral learning theory". To test the main question of the discussion, learning theories in literature are examined and, the principles of consolidation, stimulant, performance, repetition and learning by doing that behaviorists claim to be active in the individual's learning process are attempted to be linked with the police basic training. Although well-known learning theories are mentioned in the study, the association of police basic training and learning theories is limited to behavioral learning theories. The researcher has not come across with a study associating police basic training with learning theories in the security literature. In this sense, it is possible to mention the originality of the study and its potency of contribution to the field.
