Abstract: The five probable events evaluated here include the quality of education, cost of educational technology, people skills for officers, number of new training requirements for patrol personnel, and use of educational technology in the public sector. In addition, five probable events were selected for analysis: establishment of a Statewide law enforcement telecommunications network, wider use of microcomputer-based expert systems, availability of low-cost interactive video, widespread use of computers as instructional media in the public schools, and widespread use of true portable computers. The preferred scenario visualizes law enforcement training that uses various types of educational technology in order to carry out both traditional training in law, procedures, and skills, and attitudinal training that will determine how service is delivered to the public in an effective and satisfactory manner. The paper outlines strategic and transition management plans designed to implement this scenario. 27 figures, 18 notes, and 4 appendixes
