Writing the privacy and civil liberties policy is not the final step in the policy development process. The Privacy and Civil Liberties Policy Development Guide and Implementation Templates provides suggestions on the additional steps that may need to be taken upon completion of the policy. These include suggestions on formal adoption of the policy, such as whether an appropriate governing body should formally adopt the policy; tips on publication distribution and who the policy should be readily available to; and recommendations on a formal outreach approach. Additionally, the Guide discusses the potential need within a justice agency to provide training on the policy for those involved, as well as suggestions for evaluating and monitoring its implementation.
