Annotation: A modified delphi panel of 11 individuals identified several key trends and events as having the most impact on police corruption in California by the year 2000 and proposed a strategic management plan that focuses on prevention of corruption and enforcement of standards.
Abstract: Five trends were identified as having an impact on police corruption: level of supervision quality, level of hiring standards, level of job satisfaction among police officers, level of self-interest, and level of positive police/public relations. The key events identified include: mandatory ethics training for police officers, integrity tests instituted statewide, creation of an office of special prosecutor, a California State license requirement for police officers, and drug decriminalization. The media panel response forecasted that all trends would fail to realize the desired level for a decade from now. Every event except drug decriminalization was forecasted to have at least a 50-percent chance of occurring by 1995. No obstacles to the strategic management plan are anticipated that would preclude implementation given a sound transition plan. 17 footnotes, 17 references, and 9 appendixes
