Lessons Learned and Emerging Issues
Fundamental to CALEA®'s mission is promulgating public safety standards to ensure law enforcement agencies, training academies, communication entities, and campus security organizations have a contemporary framework when developing and applying best practices. However, occasionally issues facing the public safety community will not have sufficiently matured or will not have been adequately researched to provide guidance as it relates to the recognized best practice. To that end, CALEA has established the Trends and Emerging Issues component of its website to provide the public safety community access to important issues affecting the profession. As the issues presented within this section advance, they may give rise to the development of standards within the respective CALEA Accreditation program publications.
Public safety practitioners and leaders are encouraged to review the articles and resources presented within this section of the website and consider the implications for their agencies. CALEA will ensure additional resources are added as they become available and welcomes the submission of new resources to for inclusion on this site. Submit a Lesson Learned or Emerging Issue.
