WHY SHOULD COPS STUDY THE FUTURE?
A recurring class offered by the FBI’s National Academy is an Introduction to Futures Studies. In a recent assessment of the NA’s curriculum, the class was strongly endorsed as being critical for police leaders and a necessary component of the program. One sentiment expressed was that futures study was a“transformative experience”in the development of one executive’s career. At the same time, the expectation of NA graduates to become “futurists” is quite low. Once a student leaves the classroom, it is not uncommon for them to be much more focused on the issues and events of day to day law enforcement than to spend time “gazing into their crystal ball” to find out what might happen next.
