Law Enforcement Agencies

Providing Centralized Solutions to Divisions with Complex Workforce Requirements

Today's governmental law enforcement agencies includes three fundamental types-- local, state, and federal. Often, their jurisdictions are geographically divided into operational commands for logistical and administrative efficiencies. All have one core mission -- to protect and serve their communities.

Local law enforcement include Police and Sheriff Departments, but can include specialized agencies such as Airport, Harbor, or Campus Police. State agencies include the State or Highway Patrols. Federal agencies include the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service. Privately owned agencies are on the rise, often utilized in locations where public law enforcement is perceived as under-provided.


Managing the workforce in law enforcement agencies is no easy task. From Patrol to Jail to 911 Communication Divisions – the profession by its very nature challenges its members physically and mentally. Staffing shortages, negative media coverage and budget limitations have taken a heavy toll on the law enforcement profession.


Early retirements have increased and academy graduates are at an all-time low. With less officers and budget constraints, operational safety and administrative oversight are key concerns. And lack of trust between police and some communities increases the concern. The reality is that adding more law enforcement personnel won’t happen soon. But it does point to an urgent need to work as efficiently as possible.
