Annotation: This study examines the role of California law enforcement in managing the phenomenal growth rate occurring in the State and provides a 5-year plan designed to manage this circumstance.
Abstract: Futures methodologies are used to formulate scenarios, which portray situations where, absent strategic management of the problem, law enforcement will fall further behind the service demand while experiencing shrinking resources. Law enforcement will be able to mitigate the impacts of rapid growth and inadequate funding only by becoming more involved with growth management and revenue enhancement measures. Law enforcement must develop broad-based community support if it is to receive adequate funding and thus provide adequate police services to a growing population. Police administrators will play a key role in managing the police response to population growth. The public must be convinced that proper planning and adequate funding are essential for the effective delivery of police services and maintenance of the community's quality of life. This process will further the police-community partnership essential for combating crime. 12 exhibits, 4 references. (Author summary modified)
