Abstract: The study described in this article addresses the subject of law enforcement records/information management and the importance of information as an invaluable raw resource contributing to an organization's knowledge base. The study is futures-based and identifies regionalization as an alternative means of ensuring that small to medium agencies will continue to maintain and enhance existing information technology. The study addresses three questions: 1) How will law enforcement identify and address the technologies that have and will influence the future of law enforcement records management system, 2) How will law enforcement continuously acquire and maintain resources to effectively manage the future of records management systems, and 3) What kinds of personnel resources must be in place to ensure optimal operational productivity for the future of law enforcement records management systems? Alternatives have been formulated systematically so that a planner can respond to a range of possible future environments. Strategic plans as well as other elements of the study involve the fictional San Cristobal Police Department, considered to be a medium-sized local law enforcement agency by California standards.
