Police Chief sent out a call for great ideas to improve the field of law enforcement. We know great ideas can come from anywhere and anyone—and they did!  The authors of these ideas come from all over the world, from a number of different fields, and from all different ranks. The more than 40 ideas involve new local initiatives and innovative programs, as well as ideas not yet put into play.

One cannot divorce the legal and moral aspects of the philosophy of policing from its practical side. Constitutional policing incorporates both the U.S. Supreme Court case law directives with the philosophical tenets of the "spirit behind the law." The nobility of the profession demands that both of these facets of the job be taught and honored. Too many times we hear how veteran officers believe that constitutional case law "gets in the way of good policing." The profession is distancing itself from the “warrior mentality” and continues to emphasize the need for a more balanced constitutional mind-set.
