Annotation: MARCH 1976 REPORT ON A CONSULTANT'S EFFORT TO PROVIDE ORIENTATION TO DEPARTMENT MEMBERS ON THE PATROL EMPHASIS PROGRAM AND TO ASSIST POLICE DEPARTMENT PLANNERS IN STRUCTURING THE PROGRAM GRANT APPLICATION.
Abstract: ASSISTANCE WAS ALSO REQUESTED TO REVIEW THE LEAA PATROL EMPHASIS PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION PLAN REQUIREMENTS WITH DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL. THE RACINE POLICE DEPARTMENT, WITH A TOTAL POLICE STRENGTH OF 292 (211 SWORN), COVERS A POPULATION OF 97,000 AND A CITY AREA OF 31 SQUARE MILES. THE FOCUS OF THE PATROL EMPHASIS PROGRAM IS TO INCREASE THE POLICE AGENCY'S CAPACITY TO PLACE PATROL MANPOWER IN A MORE EFFECTIVE POSITION TO PREVENT CRIMINAL ATTACK AND/OR TO AFFECT APPREHENSION OF THE CRIMINAL THROUGH THE USE OF CRIME ANALYSIS AND PREVENTION TACTICS BY IMPROVING USAGE OF EXISTING RESOURCES. THE CONSULTANT CONCLUDED THAT ALTHOUGH POLICE DEPARTMENT PLANNERS GENERALLY KNEW WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE PATROL EMPHASIS PROGRAM, A LOGICAL PLANNING APPROACH HAD NOT BEEN FOLLOWED AND THEIR GENERAL THOUGHTS HAD NOT BEEN TRANSLATED INTO SPECIFIC TASKS AND ACTIVITIES. AN OUTLINE FOR GRANT APPLICATION PREPARATION IS PRESENTED.
