The National Manpower Survey of the Criminal Justice System. Volume Two: Law Enforcement.
National Planning Association, Washington, DC.
Focusing on law enforcement personnel at the city, county, and state levels (including police, sheriffs, and highway patrol agencies), this document is one in a series of six volumes reporting the results of the National Manpower Survey (NMS) of the Criminal Justice System. Chapter 1 of six chapters summarizes the major results of a national survey of law enforcement personnel, including current manpower assessment, manpower outlook, recruitment and retention, education, and training. Chapter 2 presents a profile of three levels of law enforcement agencies (local, state, and federal) and discusses the relationship between police manpower and the crime rate. Chapter 3 provides employment projections of state and local personnel needs, by occupation, for a ten-year period (to 1985). A summary of recruitment needs and turnover problems in law enforcement agencies is presented in chapter 4. Education and training needs for law enforcement occupations are discussed in chapters 5 and 6, respectively; and based on the comparisons of current educational and training programs with desired standards, conclusions and recommendations for program improvement are made.
