In 1986 the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Law Enforcement Section (GDNRlLE) began developing a comprehensive 5 year plan. A major thrust of that plan was to infuse scientific research procedures into agency operations. One critical component of the plan was the critical review of select agency data collection methods and analysis related to officer productivity. This study found that officer characteristics and activity and productivity measures can serve to support agency management policy making. Suggestions for future data collection and analysis are proposed.
