Police Auditing

Prof. Dr. Allan Jiao
Rowan University

The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which the constructs of institutional isomorphism apply within the LAPD's performance measurements of the federal consent decree, which was imposed to reform the department's structure, policies, processes, and culture. A case-study approach was used to gather and analyze the data, including documentary research, personal interviews, and observations. The findings demonstrate that isomorphic pressures existed within the LAPD's Audit Division and influenced the development of performance measures for reforms although not always in a straightforward or unidimensional manner. Police auditing in the context of the federal consent decree is shown to be a viable approach for institutionalizing police reforms, but further research is necessary on specific performance measurements of police operations and the relationship between using these measures and achieving overall police accountability, effectiveness, and efficiency.
