Delivering Police Services Effectively.
Delivering Police Services Effectively
Garth den Heyer
Advances in Police Theory and Practice; 27
Heyer asks how police forces can continue to deliver efficient and effective services as their budgets are reduced while the demands that they face--from being responsive and accessible to local communities to being capable of tackling new forms of criminality--show no signs of diminishing. Among his topics are defining methods for improving police services, historical approaches to improving police service delivery, strategies employed to improve service delivery in Australia, the establishment of Police Scotland: a reform to increase effectiveness, and increasing service delivery service efficiency in Camden County Police Department in New Jersey.
