Abstract: A CRIME ANALYSIS UNIT HAS UPDATED DEPARTMENT WORK, CREATED NEW PROGRAMS, SPECIAL FILES, AND THE CITY WARRANT LIST, UNDERTAKEN SPECIAL ANALYSES IN RESPONSE TO INDIVIDUAL OFFICERS' NEEDS, AND PUBLISHED A DAILY BULLETIN PROVIDING INFORMATION ON CURRENT POLICE ACTIVITIES, UPDATES OF REPORTED CASES, AND INTELLIGENCE INFORMATION. A CITIZENS' SURVEY CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE COMMUNITY ATTITUDES TOWARDS POLICE WORK INDICATED THAT LAWRENCE RESIDENTS STRONGLY SUPPORT THE POLICE AND FEEL THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS ARE SAFE. THE LEAST-SATISFIED CITIZENS TEND TO BE MALE, DIVORCED, LOWER INCOME PERSONS, AND MINORITIES. THE DETAILED-PROBLEM-ANALYSIS TASK FORCE DEVELOPED A 40-HOUR TRAINING PROGRAM FOR POLICE, REVISED THE DAILY ACTIVITY LOG, REALIGNED PATROL DEPLOYMENT PLANS, CREATED A NEW PROGRAM FOR PRELIMINARY AND FOLLOWUP INVESTIGATIONS, AND ESTABLISHED A CRIME-PREVENTION AND KNOWN-OFFENDER PROGRAM. THE TRAINING PROGRAM FOR BOTH SUPERVISORY AND REGULAR OFFICERS SUCCESSFULLY SERVED AS A MEANS FOR TRANSMITTING INFORMATION ABOUT PROFESSIONAL SKILLS, TECHNIQUES, AND THE RATIONALE AND METHODS OF THE ICAP PROGRAM WHILE FOSTERING A COOPERATIVE SPIRIT AMONG ALL RANKS OF OFFICERS. FIVE MAJOR AREAS HAVE BEEN DESIGNATED FOR IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION DURING THE SECOND ICAP YEAR INCLUDING THE INFORMATION SYSTEMS, PERSONNEL DEVELOPMENT, MANAGING CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS, PATROL OPERATIONS, AND THE CRIME AND CAREER-CRIMINAL PROGRAM. THE APPENDIXES CONTAIN PROGRAM GOALS AND OBJECTIVES AND THE EVALUATION DESIGN.
