How Does Your Agency Compare?

We’ve heard from 343 law enforcement agencies from 46 states concerning their current state of policy and training.

As a law enforcement leader, you’re no doubt committed to preserving the safety and accountability of your personnel, and the trust of the communities they serve. But how do you gauge your effectiveness? How do you measure your agency against others when it comes to constitutional policing?

The answers to these questions can be found in the State of Policy 2017 report, which contains insight from over 300 agencies, including where they turn for policy advice, how they communicate policies to officers, and how they’re combatting a loss of training funds.
