Police work is people work. It is done by people, for people, with people, and to people. Through the development of police policies and procedures, and applied training, a police agency can define its role in the community and control its practices in light of community expectations. Guidelines can be set for police operations and practices that will make them responsive to community priorities. Policy indicates to the community where the police agency stands on major issues and at the same time provides the police department with a set of standards against which it can be reviewed.

The Model Law Enforcement Service and Operations Guide gives police executives general guidance in the development of police policy and practice. It could also be adapted for use as your department operations or "accreditation" manual. The Guide is a helpful tool to use in comparing, updating and developing your department's policies and procedures. With the disk copy you can easily retrieve, edit, copy and print any portion of the manual to fit your needs.
