How do police departments get funding?
Police departments are funded by the governmental body that authorized their creation, such as city, county, and state governments. (Money from fines help fund the governmental body.) They also receive funding through state and federal grants, especially for particular projects like "click-it-or-ticket" and "drink,drive/go-to-jail." These types of grants fund the hiring of additional officers and/or overtime needed to carry out these projects. President Clinton created a project called something like "100,000 cops on the street" that was supposed to provide funding for an additional 100,000 cops for a period of time. Unfortunately, it created more of a burden than did good. If state law permits, police departments can also use seized money or property.

The structure of a police department is simple. There is a frontdesk and sectioned areas behind it for different functions.
Most municipal police department are situated in small towns. Theyhandle smaller less serious crimes like non-criminal events anddisturbances.
The answer is bound to be from a country where the police service is controlled by the central government. In other words where policing responsibilities are not delegated to individuals states, cities or federal districts. One candidate for the title is the South African Police Service which has 13…7 000 non-civilian members. (MORE)
Working for the police department can be a high stress position.You need to know why you want to work especially with the risksinvolved.
That's difficult to answer. Every major city, most other cities, and even some very small cities have a police department. Then there are county sheriff's or county officers in every county.
The following was taken from Wikipedia: Textbooks and scholars have identified three primary police agency functions.

This is the broad mandate to keep the peace or otherwise prevent behaviors which might disturb others. This can deal with things ranging from a barking dog to a fist-fight. By way of description, Cole and Smith note that police are usually called-on to "handle" these situations with discretion, rather than deal with them as strict violations of law, though of course their authority to deal with these situations are based in violations of law. .

Cole and Smith cited one study which showed 80% of all calls for police assistance did not involve crimes, but this may not be the case in all parts of the country. Because police agencies are traditionally available year-round, 24 hours a day, citizens call upon police departments not only in times of trouble, but also when just inconvenienced. As a result, police services may include roadside auto assistance, providing referrals to other agencies, finding lost pets or property, or checking locks on vacationers' homes. (MORE)

There are over 12,500 different police department in the US. They range from one officer to over 30,000 officers.
In the US the most commonly carried service weapon these days is the semi-automatic pistol in several different calibers (9mm, 10 mm, 40 cal, and 45 cal). In the minority are some departmentswhich still issue (and many officers still prefer to carry) revolvers in either .38 cal, 357 magnum cal, or 4…5 cal). Heavier, shoulder-fired weapons can include (most commonly) a 12 guage shotgun, and sometimes a short 'carbine-type' rifle which can range from 223 cal to 30 cal or heavier. Many large departments, and departments that maintain SWAT units have more sophisticated firearms such as sniper rifles, tear gas guns and grenade launchers, and even automatic weapons. (MORE)
I think that all police departments have certain risks, and even the most secure one will have its flaws. So, personally, unless you live in a perfect community (highly unlikely), then you wont find a safest police department. On the other hand, you can find a safer department to work for. A p…olice department in a small community is generally much safer than working in a large department in a huge city. Frequent shootings, domestic calls, break ins, teens with guns, and large entertainment districts keep urban police officers much busier and more at risk than those in a small, largely residential community.

Not sure just what is being asked - however - anytime an officer submits a report of any kind he is termed to be the "reporting officer' for that particular case.
It's difficult to say, since in some countries the military also functions as the police. However, most view the New York City Police Department as the largest department in the world. They have about 37,000 police officers.
I doubt it, with all the police lay offs, I would say good chance of no.
I don't know about the address, but if you want to call a police department, the numbers can be found here:
Although from the earliest days of Dutch settlement there was always a "watch" of some type that patrolled the town, the fist established police force of approximately 800 men under the first Chief of Police, George W. Matsell, began to patrol the City in July of 1845.

Tracking Advanced global positioning satellite (GPS) technology and cell phone ubiquity has provided law enforcement officials with additional resources to track and investigate criminal activity. By incorporating tower triangulation, most cell phone users can be traced to a location that is relat…ively accurate. Emergency call systems and 911 operators can trace a cell phone call as quickly as they can trace a land line call. Vehicles equipped with GPS equipment can be tracked as long as the device remains activated. Small GPS tracking devices can be planted on suspects to track movements. Geographic information systems (GIS) are utilized to map the movements of criminals and their activities as well as to store the information for later use. Most wireless phones have GIS technology embedded, which further adds to the ease in which movements can be tracked. (MORE)
The Airport Division of the LAPD, as well as the LA County SO. Another answer : LAX has its own Police Agency. The LAX Police are City of Los Angeles employees, just like LAPD, the LA Port Police, and General Services Police. LAPD has a substation at LAX, which they run a support mission an…d cover locations where LAX Police do not have the ability to man. The Transportation Security Administration also has law enforcement jurisdiction over the security of LAX. There is no such thing as the FAA Police, although the FAA does have an investigative branch, they are not uniformed police. Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department does not usually conduct Police services at LAX. Likewise the FBI, Secret Service, Federal Air Marshall's, Diplomatic Security Service, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Customs and Border Protection have jurisdiction over Federal crimes committed at LAX as well. This is a difficult question to answer, but the LAX Police has jurisdiction over violations of California Law committed on LAX. (MORE)
You capitalize 'police' after the department name, where the word is part of the department name, as in, 'The Somerville Police Department is looking to recruit more police officers.'

Outside of the United States, it's fairly common for police officers to be unarmed under routine circumstances. English police, for example, do not usually carry firearms on their persons (unless you are really tetchy and count the c.s spray as a firearm). There are "armed response units" where side…arms and automatic rifles are carried in the patrol vehicle, but they are kept under lock and key and brought out only when the situation requires it (unfortunately, there are more "situations" all the time). Most U.S. law enforcement officers are armed on a regular basis, and most cops would not think of going to work unarmed. Still, there are a few specialized, "proprietary" law enforcement agencies who work unarmed. These are most often found at schools, colleges, and hospitals. These are, by far, the exception. Most law enforcement officers in the United States may also carry their firearms concealed on their persons when off duty. This is not the case in most foreign countries. Most U.S. officers are encouraged to carry their firearms when off duty and not consuming alcohol, but very few are required to do so. (MORE)
Law enforcement agencies have two types of employees: sworn (sometimes called "commissioned") and non-sworn. Sworn employees have badges, guns and police powers. Non-sworn employees, such as telecommunications operators, clerks, technicians, executive assistants and others perform non-enforcement du…ties. Sworn employees usually hold ranks modeled on a military structure. The number, title, and order of these ranks vary from one place to another, but these are general examples: . Police officer, deputy sheriff, trooper, agent . Sergeant . Lieutenant . Captain . Commander, Major or other intermediate middle-management rank . Deputy or assistant chief, undersheriff, asst. superintendent . Chief of police, sheriff, superintendent, commissioner The larger the department is, the more of these ranks they are likely to have. Detectives are investigators who are at the same authority level as police officers. A law enforcement agency may have many, many job titles, especially for non-sworn employees. Jobs that were traditionally performed by sworn officers are increasingly assigned to non-sworn employees who require less training and don't receive the more liberal and expensive retirement benefits of sworn officers.

The following was taken from Wikipedia: County police tend to exist only in metropolitan counties and have countywide jurisdiction. In some areas, there is a sheriff's department which only handles minor issues such as service of papers such as a constable in other areas, along with security for …the local courthouse. In other areas, there are no county police and the local sheriff is the exclusive law enforcement agency and acts as both sheriff and county police, which is much more common than there being a separate county police force. County police tend to fall into three broad categories: . Full-service - provide the full spectrum of police services to the entire county, irrespective of local communities, and may provide contractual security police services to special districts within the county. . Hawaii - Hawaii has only county police, there are no local police. . Limited service - provide services to unincorporated areas of the county (and may provide services to some incorporated areas by contract), and usually provide contractual security police services to special districts within the county. . Restricted service - provide security police to county owned and operated facilities and parks. Some may also perform some road patrol duties on county built and maintained roads, and provide support to municipal police departments in the county. Some northeastern states maintain county detectives in their county attorneys' offices. I hope this helps you (MORE)

Added: Impossible to answer the question - no parameters are given for criteria, and judging "the worse" is purely subjective.
To protect and to serve. Another View: Many (most?) departments have their own motto and the while the above is popular, it is not a universal answer. For example - the motto of the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police is Justitia Omnibus - 'Justice for All'.

It depends on the particular department. The general opinion among police officers is that the term is used too much and is used as a weapon by criminals and people with agendas. Usually, there is an internal affairs or professional standards office within the department. They investigate ALL police… shootings to determine if they were justified, and any complaints from the general public. Law enforcement's answer to police brutality is often to turn the other cheek. This is commonly known as the "Blue Wall of Silence" which unfortunately happens way too often. (MORE)
