This first volume of the report analyzes the history of the projects; the practical problems in the planning, initiation and maintenance of the projects; the emergence of powerful resistance to the overall plan and the resulting conflicts; and the impact of these conflicts on the attainment of the goals of the project.
The second volume of the report describes the formal empirical evaluation and prevents the findings. In addition to monitoring the history of the process of change, the evaluation design included panel surveys of Dallas Police Department personnel in 1973 and 1976 to determine workforce and attitudinal changes over time, and the use of personal record information to determine behavioral changes. Although the original plan was to observe police officers as a primary method of noting behavioral changes over time.
The data were used to measure four goals: to recruit, retain, and promote officers different from those already in department, to increase officer satisfactions, to increase importance of human relations and public service functions, and to increase professionalism.
Although the educational level of recruits and police officers rose considerably, and the absolute number of women increased significantly, few attitudinal changes took place over time. Behavior appears not to have changes during the three-year period. The conclusion of each volume discusses the problems inherent in major efforts at organizational overhaul and what was learned in this particular attempt.
