Career Development for Law Enforcement.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Dept., CA.; Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (Dept. of Justice), Washington, DC.
The publication reports the findings of the first year of an ongoing study of career development systems in law enforcement. It focuses on the need to develop four capabilities: identification of organizational needs, identification of individual attributes and interests, reconciliation of the needs of the organization with the needs of available human resources, and development of appropriate programs to facilitate these goals. The first four chapters provide an introduction to the subject of career development, reviewing its history, representation in the literature, and philosophical basis. Chapter 5 addresses the first capability through the development of the position specification catalog. Chapter 6 describes an automated personnel information system to meet the second capability. Chapter 7 suggests a variety of developmental programs to blend needs with resources. Final chapters describe the task force approach, the dynamics of the system, and projections for the second year of the program. Appendixes include an industrial survey, law enforcement survey, position specifications task force manual, and Automated Personnel Information System implementation plan. (MS)
