Country: United States of America
Annotation: A PROGRAM MODEL IS PRESENTED, FOCUSING ON THE MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION OF CRIMINAL ARREST WARRANT SERVICE BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES.
Abstract: THIS PROGRAM MODEL IS INTENDED TO (1) CONTRIBUTE TO A GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF WARRANT SERVICE PROBLEMS NATIONALLY; (2) ALERT LAW ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATORS TO THE POTENTIAL CONTRIBUTION AN EFFECTIVE WARRANT SERVICE SYSTEM CAN MAKE TOWARD ACHIEVING THE PRIMARY AGENCY OBJECTIVES OF CRIME PREVENTION AND CRIMINAL APPREHENSION; AND (3) PROVIDE ADMINISTRATORS WITH THE CAPABILITY TO MAKE INFORMED CHOICES IN PLANNING, IMPLEMENTING, AND IMPROVING THE WARRANT SERVICE SYSTEM. THIS HANDBOOK IS ESPECIALLY DIRECTED TO LAW ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATORS INTERESTED IN ESTABLISHING WARRANT SERVICE AS A ROUTINE AND EFFECTIVE PART OF THE AGENCY'S ROLE IN CRIME PREVENTION, AND ALTHOUGH THE MODEL IS PRIMARILY DIRECTED TO ADMINISTRATORS OF POLICE DEPARTMENTS AND SHERIFF'S OFFICES, IT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO OTHER AGENCIES THAT SERVE WARRANTS. THE ELEMENTS OF WARRANT SERVICE ARE UNDERSCORED AND THE RECOMMENDED FUNCTIONS OF BOTH MANUAL AND COMPUTER-AIDED WARRANT SERVICE SYSTEMS ARE DETAILED. SYSTEM COORDINATION WITHIN AN AGENCY IS EXAMINED. WARRANT SERVICE UNIT ADMINISTRATION IS DISCUSSED, WITH ATTENTION TO ESTABLISHMENT AND PLACEMENT OF THE UNIT, STAFFING AND ORGANIZATION, UNIT OPERATION, AND MEASURING PRODUCTIVITY. THE RESULTS OF A NATIONAL SURVEY REGARDING EXISTING APPROACHES TO WARRANT SERVICE ARE PROVIDED, AND THE APPROACHES UTILIZED IN DALLAS, TEX., AND WASHINGTON, D.C., ARE DISCUSSED. CHARTS, TABULAR DATA, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED. A DEPUTY TESTER PROGRAM OF THE JACKSON, FLA., SHERIFF'S OFFICE AND A GENERAL ORDER OF THE METROPOLITAN POLICE DEPARTMENT OF WASHINGTON, D.C., RELATING TO OBTAINING, REVIEWING, AND SERVING ARREST AND BENCH WARRANTS ARE APPENDED.
