uture studies seek to empower individuals and organizations. By considering events that are likely to occur, proper planning can be undertaken to either avert a problem or enhance responses. By seeking to direct the flow of the future (even on small dimensions), preferable situations can be brought to life. Despite the many potential benefits of futures thinking within policing, few police leaders or organizations routinely engage in such undertakings. Why do we note an absence of a future orientation in policing? In part, this is a function of a general failure of society to place importance on such considerations. Perhaps it is human nature to focus more on today than tomorrow. In addition, unique aspects of police organizations and environments also passively discourage futures thinking.
