Opportunities for Improvement in Organisation of Police Operations
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to define opportunities for improvement in organisation of Police operations in Poland, both within the force and extra institutionally. Design/Methodology/Approach: The studies whose findings are presented in this paper are the consequence of the authors' own qualitative studies as well as surveys conducted among theoreticians and practitioners engaged in public security, management and security management. Findings: The findings prove that the determinants in rationalisation of organisation of Police operations include internal reserves of the Police, the force's cooperation with other institutions, use of modern technologies and application of highly objective tools to assessing the effectiveness of operations. They have various effects on improving organisation of Police operations, but only when applied in concert. Practical Implications: The superiors of all organisational structures within the Police should be aware of opportunities for improvement in the performance of their structures. Furthermore, they should monitor the environment in which the Police operates to be able to identify emerging areas with potential for making changes to improve the force's performance, effectiveness and efficiency.
