Excerpt
Abstract: The current project enables the Ada County, Idaho Sheriffs Office (ACSO) to apply learning organization principles to recently developed community policing and problem solving practices. The project herein can be stated as an effort to enable a sheriff?s office to examine its behavior in five areas which embody its adoption of community policing elements: periodic assessments of citizens? perceptions of crime and police services, substation policing, patrol based in problem oriented identification and resolution, performance evaluation in a COP/POP environment, and the building of community partnerships. Survey research and focus group interviews of county residents, key-stakeholders, and Ada County deputies were used to assess the ACSO across the five noted areas. All told, the findings from the current project reveal that the ACSO not only is implementing community policing and problem-solving across the agency, but is also in a position to make use of extensive data collection and analysis. That means it has made progress toward acquiring and using environmental information consistent with notions of a learning organization. Indeed, other rural sheriff?s offices may look to the ACSO model as one from which to consider program elements, particularly its philosophical commitment to COP, beat integrity, and substation based contracting.
