What strategies are available to help my police department manage budget shortfalls during economic declines?
Strategies available to help police departments manage budget shortfalls during economic declines can be found in the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) publication entitled Strategic Cutback Management: Law Enforcement Leadership for Lean Times. This publication presents lessons learned from past experiences with economic decline and suggests approaches leaders can use to address financial crises in law enforcement agencies. Also view the NIJ Director's Corner: The Challenges of Deficit-Driven Budgets article and the Police Executive Research Forum publication, Policing and the Economic Downturn: Striving for Efficiency is the New Normal.
