The Loaned Executive Management Assistance Program, LEMAP, provides management consulting and technical assistance to law enforcement entities. LEMAP reviews provide agencies an opportunity to take a step towards excellence by subjecting agencies to a complete review of their organizational structure.
The goal of the LEMAP program is to provide law enforcement administrators an opportunity to have a critical review of their organization through the eyes of peer professionals. The resulting report should serve as a guide to identify areas in need of strengthening AND highlight positive or innovative programs existing within the agency.
LEMAP reviews are conducted by volunteer law enforcement professionals. Review teams vary in size depending on the scope of review and size of the agency.
Scope of Assessment:
A full LEMAP review will look at the twenty major functions outlined in the WASPC Accreditation Program. The LEMAP Program is used as a reference in an effort to get agencies in line with industry best practices and standards. Full reviews are encouraged when there is a change in agency leadership.
Agencies are not required to contract for a full review. For example, if an agency wants a review of its records department, a contract for review of that specific function can be developed.
WASPC accepts written request from agencies for LEMAP reviews. Requests should contain: the name of the agency, contact information for the individual making the request, a short narrative outlining why the request is being made and/or any areas of focus; and tentative dates for the onsite review. WASPC will respond within thirty days to begin the contract process.
The base cost for a full LEMAP review is $2,000 plus staff time (estimate of 50 hours at $50/hour).
Costs for partial reviews vary on the scope of the review.
Confidentiality of Report:
Reports are provided to the agency within 60 days of completing the onsite review. All reports are considered confidential unless otherwise authorized by the agency.
