Researched is the problem of professional training of persons, recruited for the first time in the internal affairs bodies as prerequisite for provision of the law enforcement system with competent personnel, who qualitatively fulfill their duties to ensure protection of rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of citizens. That’s why the training of persons, recruited for the first time in the internal affairs bodies, is of paramount importance for the state. At the same time, the process of training police officers in departmental university has a number of specific features that distinguish it from training in educational organizations of civilian profile, incl. indivisibility of teaching and service, as well as orientation towards diligence and discipline. The purpose of this study was to analyze the process of vocational training of persons first recruited into service of internal organs, from the point of view of using elements of basic methodological concepts known to pedagogical science. As a result of the analysis, it can be argued, that methodological basis for training law enforcement specialists is largely eclectic and combines, to one degree or another, features of all the basic concepts. And although the system of vocational training for persons first recruited into service of internal affairs bodies is built quite clearly and in many ways effective, it still lacks flexibility and adaptability to dynamic changes in external environment.

Key words: vocational training, methodological concepts, behaviorism, neo-thomism, existentialism, materialism, pragmatism.
