Jackson’s Answer

I'm a prison guard, but I've still been given some valuable skills from training. We do a thing called a "cell extraction", when a violent and unruly prisoner is barricaded in their cell and the staff needs to get them out. We train this often, a 5 man team suits up in riot gear, and each man has an assigned sector of the individual's body they are to restrain. Due to how competent we are in doing this from training, it usually only takes a couple of minutes in the cell to restrain and extract the individual. I imagine police could say the same, the more you train the more it becomes more of a natural reaction.

Kim’s Answer

Seth,

Aside from all the obvious stuff, like handcuffing and high speed driving, the police academy gives you other skills that you don't really think about. That is, it instills in you a sense of self-confidence, the ability to act instinctively rather than hesitating just long enough to think, and a keen alertness to everything going on around you at all times. You will also learn to trust in your other officers, pretty much without question. Much of what you will do, or not do, will become second-nature to you because of situations you were exposed to while in the police academy. I "died" in the academy due to a stupid mistake - it never happened again!
