Annotation: Six trends are identified in this futures study relevant to the technological training needs for California police academy students by the year 2005: public funding; computer literacy; law enforcement specialization; crime concerns; public support for police high technology; and expert systems for patrol.
Abstract: Normative, hypothetical, and exploratory scenarios were developed based on these trends and six identified events: private enterprise police training; military research to law enforcement; mobile data fingerprint identifier; required police officer computer literacy; high tech police bond issue; and lethal force restrictions. The strategic plan included in this study recommended policies designed that develop a technology review committee, study the role of police service to the community in the light of new technology, standardize technology training in the State, and explore alternative funding sources for police technology and training. The plan called for the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) to take a leadership role throughout the transition and implementation stages. 7 tables, 9 notes, and 15 appendixes
