Hello,

There
are a variety of assessments that can be used to evaluate or measure
performance, personal feelings, identify needed changes (internal and
externally), and more in law enforcement agencies. To properly asses and
identify needed changes a needs assessment method would be a tool that
could identify information about crime, needed department changes,
stress within law enforcement departments, policy issues, and more.
According to, Chibnall, S., Harris, R., & Ward, K., (2007) needs
assessments renders information that “helps an agency, organization, or
coalition determine the nature and extent of specific problems in the
community and how a problem is perceived among diverse groups”
(Chibnall, S., Harris, R., & Ward, K., 2007, pg. 18). Needs
assessments are also valuable tools that can yield reliable data to
identify and address specific issues that may exist externally and
internally. Chibnall, S., Harris, R., & Ward, K., (2007) indicates
that needs assessments utilize information from a variety of sources to
render valuable information that helps identify needed changes within
and outside of law enforcement agencies. Sources include reviewing local
archives, state or national data, data from surrounding communities,
data from officers (current and retired), data from surveys, and more.

Additionally,
utilizing a variety of surveys during a needs assessment to evaluate or
measure performance, personal feelings, identify needed changes
(internal and externally), and identify the feelings that the officers
or public have towards the direction of the organization, how the
organization is structured, and more can be extremely beneficial as
well. In law enforcement agencies needs assessments can be used to
address and identify issues externally and internally. Needs assessments
can also asses personal concerns of members of the department and the
community. Because of its many components used to identify and asses,
the tool can prove to be beneficial to the community and law enforcement
agencies in many ways.
