Planning, executing, and monitoring Command and Control (C2) is difficult to accomplish on many levels, yet much has been learned in terms of applying improved technology to achieve it. This knowledge seems directly transferable from the battlefield to any environment requiring improved C2. This thesis demonstrates how DoD Information Technology architecture can be used to enhance C2 of a medium sized urban police department (PD) struggling to reduce gang violence in the face of significant resource reductions. Using a field demonstration, researchers demonstrate how a Common Tactical Picture (CTP) can improve officer effectiveness at the Salinas Police Department (SPD) in Salinas, California. Upon completion of the field demonstration, comparisons are made between the existing information and communications architecture of SPD and a baseline Joint Battlespace Awareness ISR Integration Capability (JBAIIC) testbed architecture to identify capability gaps that limit SPD's ability to more effectively combat violent crime. Based on this analysis, a Technology Implementation Plan (TIP) is created, identifying courses of action available to SPD so that current and upcoming technological initiatives can be properly implemented-and potentially transferred to other municipal Law Enforcement agencies needing to extend their own their limited resources.
