Annotation: This futures study explores the impact the use of senior volunteers will have on California law enforcement agencies by the year 2003.
Abstract: Several trends were chosen as those most important to this issue: level of volunteers replacing paid employees, amount of long-term liability issues, degree of acceptance of seniors as a functional part of society, level of savings from volunteers, level of community involvement, and degree of life expectancy and its impact on the number of senior volunteers. The trends selected as being most important to forecast for this study included a major lawsuit by a volunteer, death or injury of a volunteer, public awareness campaign, increased public funding for law enforcement, legislation outlawing volunteer programs, and organization by volunteers for pay and benefits. The study concluded with a strategic plan, which considered external environment, organizational capability, and stakeholder identification, and a transition management plan.
