Needs Assessment – the process of diagnosing what is already has don’t have, applying the following ways:

  • Compare existing conditions with some basic values, such as the statement of the organization purpose.

  • Compare existing conditions with that of other similar organizations.

  • Compare existing conditions with long-term goals.

  • Goal and Objective Setting – the specific statement of agencies basic values or purposes, towards which the agency is working. It is sometimes called operational definition of agency’s values. It defines the value in measurable terms.

Once values and goals have been operationally defined, it is possible to asses needs in comparable terms and to determine the root cause for those needs.

  2. Equip all patrol units with field breathe analyzer kits, and train all officers in field sobriety testing and arrest techniques.

  3. Conduct a public education campaign on the dangers of the city police department strict enforcement policy.
