Description

“This guide will help public officials and citizens decide whether to start their own police departments and – if they decide to go forward – to offer guidance on how to do it efficiently and effectively. The guide is relevant for rural, suburban, and urban communities of all sizes.

It is not meant to be a manual for managing and operating all aspects of a police agency because the decisions and issues discussed require a great deal of additional consideration and work. But the guide can be a valuable tool to assist communities in thoughtfully considering the major issues involved in starting a police department.”
