ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE LAW ENFORCEMENT IT REVOLUTION? Law enforcement agencies that are laggards in Information Technology (IT) will soon, if not already, be considered mismanaged. Whether you are in an operational position, or you are a police officer who aspires to a higher rank, you must be aware of how IT can help you perform your job and help your organization.
DON'T BE INTIMIDATED BY IT ANY LONGER. With extensive experience implementing large-scale IT projects to the law enforcement community, author Jim Chu has assembled a comprehensive, one-stop guide that enables you to understand the many complexities and hurdles associated with IT systems. In a non-technical language, Law Enforcement Information Technology: A Managerial, Operational, and Practitioner Guide describes infrastructure components and outlines economic concepts that explain how and why IT adds value. It also includes seminal perspectives on why IT supports community policing, and how public policing is changing to a knowledge-based profession.
LEARN HOW TO APPLY IT AND MAXIMIZE THE USE OF INFORMATION. Used wisely and correctly, IT can be one of your greatest and most efficient assets in law enforcement. Whether you address automation or communicate with those who do, you need to understand the role of IT in all aspects of the public safety service delivery chain. Logically organized and easy to understand, Law Enforcement Information Technology helps you become well-versed in the latest terminology, products, and automation options and gives you the ability to work with technical resources in a partnership to improve the performance of your organization.
