Annotation: THIS ANALYSIS OF THE DEPARTMENT'S INVESTIGATIVE SERVICES WAS UNDERTAKEN FOR THE IOWA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY, WHICH SERVES 2,825,000 PERSONS LIVING IN AN AREA OF 56,000 SQUARE MILES.
Abstract: THE REPORT ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM THAT INVOLVES THE ORGANIZATION, SUPERVISION, AND OPERATION OF THE FOUR RELATIVELY AUTONOMOUS DIVISIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT THAT ARE ASSIGNED INVESTIGATIVE RESPONSIBILITIES, AND IT CONCENTRATES ON WHETHER PERSONNEL RESOURCES ARE BEING DEPLOYED AND UTILIZED IN AN OPTIMUM FASHION. IT WAS RECOMMENDED IN THE REPORT THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY (DPS) CONSOLIDATE ITS INVESTIGATIVE SERVICES INTO ONE DIVISION UNDER ONE OFFICIAL, THE CHIEF OF INVESTIGATIVE SERVICES, WHO WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE TO THE COMMISSIONER. IT WAS FURTHER RECOMMENDED THAT THE DPS ADOPT A TASK FORCE OR TEAM APPROACH TO THE INVESTIGATION OF SERIOUS OR COMPLEX CRIMES AND DEVELOP STRATEGIES WHICH WILL INCREASE THE TEMPORARY BUT CRITICAL UTILIZATION OF SPECIAL AGENTS ON AN IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE BASIS REGARDLESS OF THEIR REGULAR ASSIGNMENTS.
