"The mission of "Police Management Services" is to make your department better than it is now. We can provide services that too many administrators ignore until it is too late."

Some departments waste precious resources (time, money and manpower) without accomplishing necessary goals and objectives (like achieving accreditation). Others ignore internal administrative or operations concerns (like the lack of a current and complete policy manual). Some executives may not have the time or expertise to either objectively determine staffing levels or they may need an outside opinion regarding issues such as training, supervision, evidence handling, consolidation, etc. With the number of lawsuits rising each year against police departments, you cannot afford to ignore deficiencies in your department.

We want to reduce the risk of lawsuits,

lower your liability when lawsuits do occur and make your department pro-active against litigation rather than re-active There are too many people waiting to sue you!
