Today's police and sheriff recruits : insights from the newest members of America's law enforcement community by Laura Werber Castaneda( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For much of the past decade, police and sheriff's departments faced considerable challenges in attracting and retaining recruits, such that many departments struggled to maintain their size. Although the economic downturn has altered this situation, police and sheriff's departments should expect that the tight labor market of the past decade will return. This volume summarizes a 2008-2009 survey fielded to recent police officer and sheriff's deputy recruits nationwide. The survey asked recruits why they chose a career in law enforcement, why they chose the particular agency that they joined, what they felt were the downsides of a career in law enforcement, and what could be done to improve their department's recruiting efforts. In discussing the survey results, the authors focus on how understanding modern recruits can help departments refine their recruitment practices and develop a workforce well suited to community-oriented policing
Policing terrorism : an executive's guide by Graeme R Newman( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Description from Brief 01: It has been said that 9/11 changed everything. This is certainly true for local police agencies and other chiefs. It is increasingly clear that federal agencies, such as the FBI and the US Secret Service, can no longer work alone in protecting the United States from further attack. Rather, they must work in partnership with other public and private agencies, and most important, with local police. Local police can identify potential terrorists living or operating in their jurisdictions, they can help protect vulnerable targets, and they can coordinate the first response to terror attacks. These are heavy new responsibilities that significantly expand the workload of already busy departments. Many departments welcome these new responsibilities, but they cannot be shrugged off because elected officials and the public will increasingly expect their police to be prepared

Local law enforcement responds to terrorism : lessons in prevention and preparedness( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document discusses the types of resources that police may want to consider when developing their terrorism prevention and response plan. To deal effectively with the threat of domestic terrorism, the police must be able to manage and coordinate different sources of data and intelligence. They must also process them in such a way as to provide an enhanced understanding of actual or potential criminal activity. In recent years, technological advances have resulted in vast improvements in data gathering techniques, including in-field laptops, automated computer aided dispatch systems, and geographical information systems. Some police departments are finding value in combining law enforcement data with other types of data to examine crime problems in greater depth. These data are being used both in the aggregate and at the incident level. The importance of incident level data is that it can be analyzed by different levels of geography (address, beat, reporting district) as well as by other variables. Non-law enforcement types of data such as pawn information and drug court information are often available in incident level format and when combined with the more traditional law enforcement data, can allow for numerous analytical possibilities. Agencies are now recognizing the benefits of data sharing across institutions and jurisdictions. There is also the need to ensure that police personnel receive the necessary training to make certain that they have the tools required to effectively respond to terrorist attacks. The importance of communications interoperability was reaffirmed during the recent terrorist attacks. Technology can assist local law enforcement by delivering timely and consistent information to the community. Agencies need to assess the community₂s needs and develop an approach that is tailored to the distinctive characteristics and requirements that exist within each individual jurisdiction

Mediating citizen complaints against police officers : a guide for police and community leaders by Samuel Walker( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides guidance in helping police and community leaders develop successful mediation programs for addressing citizen complaints against police officers. The first chapter defines mediation as "the informal resolution of a complaint or dispute between two parties through a face-to-face meeting in which a professional mediator serves as a neutral facilitator and where both parties ultimately agree that an acceptable resolution has been reached." The goals of mediation are to achieve understanding of the issues involved in the complaint, solve any problems associated with the complaint, and achieve reconciliation between the parties. The second chapter outlines the potential benefits of mediation for police officers, citizen complainants, police accountability, community policing, the complaint process, and the criminal justice system. The third chapter discusses the key issues in developing a mediation program for citizen complaints against police. Among the issues addressed are voluntary participation, case eligibility, the mediation of racial and ethnic-related complaints, the mediation of complaints by women, potential language and cultural barriers, case screening, police discipline and accountability, and getting both sides to the table. Other issues addressed pertain to the mediation session itself and the enforcement of agreements. Chapter four presents results from a survey of existing citizen complaint mediation programs. The concluding chapter describes a model for a successful mediation program for citizen complaints against police. 100 references
