Excerpt
Introduction: The primary goal of this project was to conduct an in-depth assessment of the technological capabilities and needs of small and rural law enforcement agencies. This project fills a great void because most of what is known about policing comes from systematically conducted evaluations of urban and large-department policing. Little has been done to examine the current state of small and rural law enforcement. Just as large departments are influenced by such variables as agency size, degree of specialization, personnel sophistication, availability of training, volume and nature of workload, jurisdictional economic conditions, local history, and culture, so are small and rural departments, but perhaps in varying degrees. Issues such as these must be assessed and understood in order to guide science and technology development for small/rural policing, thereby designing effective and successful technology training for small/rural police agencies. This research project provides a comprehensive and national assessment of the technological capabilities and training needs for small/rural law enforcement organizations. A focus on small police departments is necessitated by the fact that over half of the nation?s local police departments employ less than 10 sworn officers, and that 90% of all local police agencies maintain fewer than 50 sworn officers (Hickman and Reaves, 2001). Additionally, 90% of the nation?s police departments serve populations of under 25,000 (Hickman and Reaves, 2001). For this research, small will refer to those agencies with 19 officers or less that serve a population of 50,000 or less.
