Innovation and Creativity in the 21st Century Police Changes
Background: Police perspective in the mid- 21st century has tremendously changed and has created dreams police have in their roles in the society and it might require that these dreams change so that it is to the benefit of both police and the society. The police we know today have faced a difficult route and possess polycentric and proliferating origins. Therefore; our environment is changing rapidly. Therefore; the future police chiefs will encounter important choices every day.
Objective: The present article intends to show what changes have innovation and creativity made in the 21st century policing and that whether this innovation has been effective in police mission and if police can directly benefit from innovative knowledge or benefit from the existing technology.
Research Method: The method used in this article is of applied type in terms of nature and descriptive-analytical type, as well.
Findings: In the mid twenty century, policing transformed abruptly. “A silent revolution” has occurred. Non-governmental police increasingly developed and police monopoly over policing was quickly fading. The wave that seemed non-ending and appeared to move in one direction, changed direction abruptly and subsided. The reconstruction- based evidence of this polycentric policing was the growth of private security which is now larger than governmental policing (in terms of staff) in most parts of the world.
Conclusion: In particular, policing is a job related to “people and information”. Therefore; police leaders and chiefs in all countries need to be aware of trends. In addition, there is a need to understand how information is collected, exchanged and used and the consequences of these activities should be investigated, as well.
Key Words: Innovation, Creativity, Change, Police, Challenge
