Mentorings Involvement In Succession Planning
Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas (LEMIT)
As a result of the research conducted into the idea that law enforcement should implement a mentoring program as part of their succession planning, it became evident that as a profession, law enforcement is behind the curve on this idea. It is the assertion of this paper that law enforcement agencies should implement a strong mentoring program in an effort to prepare the agency for successful succession. With the impending retirement of a major portion of the American workforce set to retire in the not so distant future, agencies find themselves ill prepared to transition employees upward through the ranks into positions of increased responsibility. Research will show that law enforcement would be well served by instituting mentoring programs in order to properly prepare their employees to run the agencies of the future.
