Police discipline : a case for change by Darrel W Stephens( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This paper describes the challenges law enforcement agencies nationwide experience with current disciplinary procedures and offers alternate approaches that can improve internal morale and external relationships with the community. The author also highlights proactive approaches (such as education-based discipline, mediation, peer review, and early intervention) that some agencies are employing to manage and/or reform officer behavior."--Publisher's website

Beyond command and control : the strategic management of police departments by Mark H Moore( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and Hungarian and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the forces that are undermining the orthodoxy in police organization and management and presents a new way of thinking about the organization and management of police departments. The proposed method borrows the concept of corporate strategy from the private sector and adapts it for use in the public sector. The proposed application of a corporate strategy to police management involves the choice of purpose, the molding of organizational identity and character, the continuing definition of what needs to be done, and the mobilization of resources for the attainment of goals in the face of aggression competition or adverse circumstances. This book uses the concept of corporate strategy to help define the goals of policing. Another chapter analyzes how the police might conceive the management of their relations with the external environment followed by an examination of the implications of corporate strategy for the internal structure and operations of police departments. The final chapter looks to the future as it discusses the requirements for imaginative police leadership

Toy guns : involvement in crime and encounters with the police by David L Carter( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey documents the number of crimes committed by persons using imitation guns and the number of confrontations by police with persons who had imitation guns which were thought to be real. The survey was sent to all municipal police and consolidated police departments serving populations of 50,000 or more inhabitants, all sheriff's departments with 100 or more sworn employees, and all primary State police agencies. The total survey response rate was 70 percent with a usable response rate of 65.5 percent. Findings indicate that between January 1, 1985 and September 1, 1989, 458 police departments (65.5 percent) reported 5,654 robberies known to be committed with an imitation gun. In the same period, police departments reported 8,128 known assaults with imitation guns. One hundred eighty-six police departments reported 1,128 incidents where an officer warned or threatened to use force and 252 cases where actual force had been used based on the belief that an imitation gun was real. 5 tables, 12 figures, 8 illustrations, appendix

Community policing : would you know it if you saw it? by Francis X Hartmann( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper does not attempt to define community policing. Rather, it develops practical criteria which would allow one to walk into a city and say, "Yes, they are going in the direction in which good policing seems to be going." Those to whom such an assessment is important might include a newly-elected mayor, a newly-appointed city manager, a newspaper or television journalist who has moved to a new city, and, perhaps most important, a citizen distressed by the current level of police responsiveness. The name "community policing" was widely used in the late sixties and early seventies. In the minds of some, it carries the baggage of that period along with disappointments with the strategy as it was then practiced. Some are uncomfortable with the term, yet its use continues, apparently because it is based on values that people care about. Those values are captured in responses to the question, "What is the business of policing? What is policing about?" Community policing's answer is that the job of policing is to promote an interactive process through which the community and the police jointly address and solve problems
Improving local-federal partnerships by Gerard R Murphy( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to be prepared for a coordinated response against terrorist acts, this paper presents recommendations, strategies, and programs designed to bridge the communication divide between local and Federal agencies. The Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) convened an Execute Session with a group of police chief executives, sheriffs, FBI agents, policymakers, and observers in order to plan strategies for strengthening local and Federal partnerships. This paper presents the major recommendations and findings from the meeting. Chapter 2 outlines the main themes and issues that emerged during the meeting. Seven priorities were described as most crucial to building a coordinated response from local and Federal officials: promoting effective local-Federal partnerships, security and information clearances, joint terrorism task forces, FBI strategies, intelligence, multijurisdictional information sharing, and training and awareness. The first priority underscores the importance of strong partnerships while the remaining six priorities focus on the specific programs and strategies that will help achieve local-Federal partnerships. The paper devotes one chapter to each of the priorities and presents the issues from differing perspectives, including the major obstacles to effective partnerships and recommendations for improving collaborations. Several sidebar articles are offered throughout the paper to enhance understanding of the issues at hand. The results of site visits are presented in order to illustrate collaborative problems and present solutions. The appendices include the FBI Policy and Guidelines, a speech by Edwin Delattre on successful partnerships, and a list of the participants and observers of the Executive Session
Police education and minority recruitment : the impact of a college requirement by David L Carter( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1989 study examined the impact of a college requirement on the proportionate recruitment of minorities for police work. The first phase of the study was a comprehensive review of related research in police education, and the second phase was a survey of 699 State, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies. The third phase consisted of site visits to selected police departments to collect policy-related materials and explore educational issues in greater depth through document review and interviews. The final phase of the research involved extensive legal research on the bona fide occupational qualifications (BFOQ), discrimination in employment, and affirmative action practices. The data indicate that in the aggregate, law enforcement agencies in the research population had minority group members in proportions comparable to the general population. Educational levels of minority police officers were approximately the same as white officers at the undergraduate level and higher than white officers at the graduate level. Although a number of factors make college education disproportionately inaccessible to minorities, the courts have ruled that job requirements justify making a college degree a qualification for employment. Apparently there is an adequate pool of both minority and majority college-educated men and women interested in police employment. A college education can be both empirically and legally justified as a BFOQ and should be established
