The study investigated the relationship between training programs and staff performance in the Uganda Police Force. Training programs were taken as an independent variable and staff performance as the dependent variable. The objectives of the study were to establish the relationship between induction training programs and staff performance in Uganda Police Force, to examine the relationship between on-the-job training programs and staff performance in Uganda Police Force, to determine the relationship between off-the-job training programs and staff performance in Uganda Police Force. A case study design was adopted for the study and Data was collected using questionnaires and interview guides. Both qualitative and quantitative methods that included descriptive and inferential statistical techniques were used to analyze the study. The study revealed a statistically significant positive correlation between induction training programs, off-the –job training programs and staff performance. However the study revealed a statistically non-significant positive correlation between on- the –job training programs and staff performance. The study recommends that the Uganda Police Force should drastically improve on the relationship between induction training programs and staff performance while focusing on new employees and those promoted, uphold coaching of junior staff by senior management so as to improve on performance, emphasize more on seminars, lectures by resource persons and distance learning and also consider other factors like leadership, supervision and policy issues to improve on staff performance besides training programs.
