The article reveals the urgency of improving the professional development of internal forces unit commanders and existing contradictions. On the basis of theoretical and empirical research, specifying the psychological essence of professional formation of internal troops units commanders, we determine the content of psychological support of this process on the example of unit commanders on escort duty, extradition and protection of the accused. We propose criteria and indicators of professional development, as well as an approach for their use in the implementation of psychological monitoring of unit commanders’ professional development success as part of psychological support. The results of these studies support the hypothesis that the valid content implementation in psychological support of professional development at the stage of independent professional activity can greatly increase the success of professionalization.
Keywords: professionalization, professional development, professional competence, psychological support, psychological monitoring, criteria and indicators of professional development.
