For police agencies everywhere, the principles of maintaining law and order and protecting public safety remain the same. But the environment in which this mandate is carried out is changing dynamically.
The findings of a recent Accenture study which included a series of in-depth interviews with 20 senior police leaders from across the U.S.1, found that most organizations share common challenges and goals. And in this era of disruption, most agencies are rapidly moving to adapt, innovate and transform to meet the evolving challenges in law enforcement.
While there is no “silver bullet” solution, Accenture’s recent study among senior police leaders in the U.S. identified six steps police forces can take to help them address these challenges, embracing operational, organizational and technological change to build a foundation for the future.
