Management of Wildlife Law Enforcement Operations Within the Concept of Community Oriented Policing

Traditional wildlife law enforcement epitomizes the concept of community oriented policing. Many problems of supervision, performance tracking, evaluation, and uniformity in front line law enforcement operations arise because the nature of conservation law enforcement is remote in terms of territory, communication, and routine operations. The successful implementation of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission's Five Point Plan is bringing about a paradigm shift. Supervisory training, performance evaluation, and law enforcement ethics receive top priority under the plan. Communication and professionalism are top concerns for the law enforcement programs. The present agency standards exemplify management of community oriented policing.
