Annotation: This study explored the impacts a culturally diverse law enforcement work force will have on personnel management practices by the year 2002.
Abstract: The study first conducted a futures study of forecasted trends and events that will impact the study issue. It then implemented a strategic plan that used the Alameda County Sheriff's Department as a model for the analysis. A transition management plan was developed to launch the strategic plan of action. The study addressed the changing demographics across the Nation that will make police agencies rethink how to recruit, test, promote, and manage a culturally diverse work force. A departmental task force on diversity committee was used as the vehicle for change in addressing management and employee cultural diversity issues. The study concluded that the management of cultural diversity in a law enforcement environment requires a holistic approach to the creation of a departmental environment that will permit persons of diverse cultural backgrounds to realize their professional potential within departmental objectives.
