Annotation: This futures study examined how satellite technology will be used by California law enforcement agencies to respond to natural and manmade disasters.
Abstract: Participants on the study panel identified the five trends most likely to occur over the next decade: (1) level of global population's impact on cultural colonization, (2) degree of police privatization, (3) shift in government spending from military to domestic, (4) demands on public education, and (5) cooperation between Federal, State, and local agencies. Some likely events that were incorporated into the analysis included efficient and timely deployment of responding emergency resources, satellite locators make rapid location of persons possible, U.S. Supreme Court rules eavesdropping permissible during disasters, and government gives local enforcement access to classified technology. A cross-analysis produced a normative scenario pertaining to the use of satellite technology by law enforcement; this study includes strategic and transition management plans designed to implement that scenario. 2 tables, 25 figures, 19 notes, 57 references, and 5 appendixes
