Annotation: The issue of police misconduct is of paramount importance to both the general public and the law enforcement community; police misconduct is generally viewed in terms of the excessive use of force or criminal actions by police officers.
Abstract: The current study examines the impact of behavioral profiling on identifying police misconduct in California by the year 2005. The study focuses on monitoring behavior patterns as they relate to police misconduct. Since research indicates a lack of success with the traditional, reactionary response of law enforcement to misconduct, behavioral research projects are cited to demonstrate the feasibility of behavioral profiling. Policy considerations related to behavioral profiling emphasize an industrywide approach to dealing with police misconduct and the benefits of proactive intervention. A strategic plan is offered that includes a research phase to identify specific behavioral precursors to police misconduct and a pilot project to be implemented. A transition management plan discusses the management structure necessary to employ behavioral profiling by police departments. Additional research is recommended to define reasons for specific behavior and to identify what intervention techniques can be used to correct negative behavior.
