Annotation: The future for non-law enforcement Hispanic executives as law enforcement executives in California by the year 2001 is analyzed using future's research methodologies.
Abstract: A Nominal Group Technique (NGT) Panel forecasted three important issue-related trends: Hispanic political empowerment; the transfer of executives to other companies; and the appointment of authorities of Hispanic descent. Events with a strong probability of occurring and a substantial impact on the issue were forecast as: the Mexican border opens; the first non-law enforcement executive becomes a law enforcement executive; and a Hispanic is appointed as Executive Director of Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST). A normative scenario is used to develop a strategic plan for Nueva Vida, a fictitious city. Recommended policies include: developing a bank of names of Hispanics interested and qualified to be law enforcement executives; increasing the number of Hispanics to positions of appointing authorities; and encouraging community steering committees to monitor management development programs for Hispanics. 4 references and 10 appendixes
