Law Enforcement Administrative File System
Description and Features
|Law Enforcement Administrative File System, 2010 edition, second printing, Steven T. Kernes and Barbara Birkland
Police and sheriffs departments struggle with the overwhelming deluge of written documents. Memoranda, letters, surveys, studies, financial records, personnel files, supply and inventory information, training files, and other important administrative papers account for a significant amount of filing space and work time dedicated to maintaining records. Filing and recovering this information is not only a necessity of managing a law enforcement agency, but a legal responsibility. Twenty-five years of research conducted by the authors reveals that most law enforcement departments do not have organized, systematic, reliable administrative filing systems. Most agencies use filing methods and concepts inconsistent with modern management practices. Through research a proven and tested file system has been developed to meet the needs of all agencies – small, medium and large. Managers are aware of the need to change and improve records management systems, however, seldom know when the time has come.
• File folders are maintained in alphabetical order.
Addressing methods particularly valuable to the management of administrative records, this text merges theory with a streamlined practice using examples, illustrations, and a model alphanumeric method for coding documents. A comprehensive and practical system for coding, filing, and recovering all information, publications and documentation generated and received by police departments. This proven and tested system eliminates the confusion of locating and filing information when the responsible secretary is unavailable. Everyone can easily adopt and use this file system. Information buried in file folders hidden in file cabinets can be recovered in less than five minutes – during the length of a telephone call.
