How to Improve Organizational Effectiveness 



OCTOBER 5, 2018  



Eligible for TCOLE APPROVAL    


The purpose of this course is to provide participants with an introduction to the various aspects relating to law enforcement staff inspections and how to build a highly effective program from the ground up.
It is incumbent upon every law enforcement agency administrator to ensure a system of checks and balances exist within their department. Creating an organizational environment that establishes standards for risk management, accountability and efficiency through continuous audits and inspections, will allow managers a constant self-evaluation and a method to identify areas of success and areas requiring improvement.   This is particularly crucial in areas of high liability, including; selection, use of force, internal investigations, biased based profiling, protected records management, evidence and property, fiscal activities, and all aspects of training.
This fast paced classdelivers useful information for implementing agency staff inspections and evaluating agency policies and procedures in accordance with established, proven professional practices. The course will identify several critical areas that require careful inspection, specific responsibilities of agency inspectors, and the role of the chief executive and command staff in supporting the process.

After taking this training, participants will be able to:
  • Understand the overall staff inspection process to improve organizational effectiveness.
  • Apply comprehensive staff inspections to every division within the agency - operational, performance, fiscal, training and all high liability areas.
  • Develop strategies for agency and community buy-in.
  • Establish accountability and performance expectations.
  • Construct and implement standards from the ground up based on best business practices and departmental goals.
  • Developing a systematic approach to audits and inventories.
  • Make recommendations for corrective action based on non-punitive measures.
  • Provide management direction on policy revisions to meet acceptable standards.
  • Act as the agency liaison to outside risk management teams and external auditors.
  • Provide assistance, as well as assessment, in the area of accountability, performance measure initiatives, and compliance with laws, regulations and internal policies in carrying out programs.
