This complete package presents a solid foundation in the skills and knowledge required for using the computer in carrying out the specific kinds of tasks that are encountered on the job in various aspects of law enforcement. It begins with fundamentals and progresses systematically through concepts of MS-DOS, word processing, database, spreadsheet, and criminal justice data processing. Assumes no prior knowledge of computing. Covers specific law enforcement uses of the computer for: completing police reports, keeping records and processing reports (e.g., database management of records involving arrests, criminal suspects, victims, and items of evidence), investigating crimes and identifying criminal suspects (e.g., querying police department records as an investigative skill), and managing a department (e.g., managing resources, deploying personnel, and administering budgets).
