Annotation: This paper includes a futures study of the role mid-size law enforcement agencies will play in managing an open border between the United States and Mexico by the year 2003; a model strategic plan using the city of Santa Barbara; and a transition management plan. Information is presented in a journal article and a technical report.
Abstract: Five prominent trends will increase in 10 years: (1) Language and cultural concerns; (2) Immigration's impact on the criminal justice system; (3) Changes in community expectations; (4) Community problemsolving policing; and (5) Street crime by homeless immigrants. High probability events that would affect law enforcement are: (1) California unprepared for border opening; (2) Hispanics become majority population; (3) Crime families in California and Mexico link; (4) Race riots beyond law enforcement control; and (5) CLETS links with equivalent Mexican data system. Policy recommendations emphasize local law enforcement efforts to provide language and cultural awareness training to police employees, and a phased implementation process. The model strategic plan includes action steps and implementation guidelines. The transition management plan presents a feasible management structure and supporting technologies.
