In this research, having recognized the necessity of describing a desirable environmental scanning model for Iran’s police’s, we have made an analysis of a variety of sciences and numerous disciplines. The main goal of this research is to develop an appropriate environmental scanning model in the area of national security and defense i. e. military forces, particularly law enforcement – which is the primary role of police – so as to develop the enterprise architecture of Iran’s police by this approach in an appropriate context using an effective tool, called futures studies, and describe annual horizon of Iran’s police. Establishing and maintaining security through described strategies in the enterprise architecture of Iran’s police is of the most important benefits of this model. Moreover, making an improvement in the status quo as the first step in achieving the desirable situation through spatial planning and examining driving forces and trends is among the major consequences of this model. The identified or researcher-made frameworks were introduced through descriptive analytic approach that can be defined as six environment scanning models including the basic issue, mission/function, structure/agent, interaction/contrast, analysis and institution oriented levels. Finally, an alternative framework with three dimensional titles (place/time/context) was proposed for the desired environment scanning for Iran’s police by considering the nature of securitization, order maintenance, and policing services in sociality and futures studies progress trend. This is the first practical attempt at achieving a model suitable to the nature and identity of Iran’s police; however, we have a long way to go before achieving a comprehensive and dynamic model that takes into account all the requirements.
