This national study provides information on State, county, and city standards governing the training and number of reserve or auxiliary law enforcement personnel throughout the United States. The term "reserve" refers to any individual in law enforcement in a part-time capacity for little or no compensation. Civilian volunteers and Explorers (a junior police program operated by the Boy Scouts of America) are not considered to be part of law enforcement's reserve component. Information gathered directly from States and local jurisdictions indicates that reserve law enforcement officers represent an important part of the law enforcement community by assisting and supplementing regular police officers in crime prevention. The 14 States having the highest percentage of reserve personnel include Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Ohio, Mississippi, Indiana, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Washington, Montana, Oregon, North Carolina, Kansas, and Iowa. States offering the most training time for reserve personnel include New Jersey, Missouri, Vermont, California, Nevada, Montana, Florida, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Delaware, Indiana, Maine, New York, Washington, Utah, Michigan, and Arizona. Data are also provided on training standards for part-time, full-time, and volunteer law enforcement personnel; reserve law enforcement personnel at county and city levels; and training standards for State police and highway patrol officers. Descriptions of selected State reserve associations are provided.

Police leaders possess a plethora of rich experiences and practical and theoretical knowledge that provides fascinating insights into the current state of policing around the world. While observers’ opinions of ongoing developments in policing are well known, it is rare to get an insider’s glimpse of how police leaders themselves assess these advances. Through in-depth and exceptionally thoughtful interviews with highly placed police leaders and administrators, Trends in Policing: Interviews with Police Leaders Across the Globe presents cross-cultural perspectives on the organizational structure, leadership, functions, public projects, training, culture, and societal context of police worldwide. A broad spectrum of police philosophies from over a dozen countries This elite group of leaders and the learned researchers who interview them address the fundamental contextual changes that add layers of complexity to police work. Covering an extensive range of topics, the interviews include the experiences, opinions, and preferences of men and women who individually and as a group possess a vast array of knowledge pertaining to the problems and prospects of policing. While examining current trends, they discuss the future role of police in a world in which policing issues transcend national borders. A fruitful collaboration between practitioners and academics Through discussions with those actively engaged in policing, this book bridges the gap between research and practice. While police leaders are not usually accustomed to reflecting and writing on their experiences, the thoughtful interview style of the researchers assists the practitioners in defining their views, forming a cohesive volume rich with the wisdom of experience and the context of analysis.
