Project #105553 - Virtual Police Department Table of Organization chart

The project is centered on the creation of a task force and a strategic action plan to address an increase in violent crime (homicide, sexual assault and robbery) in the city of Virtual. Based on the limited criminal intelligence available, there are indications of juvenile gang and drug trafficking related to this violent crime spike. These crimes are the subject of public, political and community demand for action. This 8-unit task force will be a collaborative effort involving both the Virtual Police Department and other appropriate “partner” agencies within the criminal justice system.

 

1. Identifying 6 and only 6 departmental units that will be included in some manner on the task force from the Virtual Police Department Table of Organization chart. (See Virtual Police Table of Organization.)

 

    NOTE: All of Patrol (Commanders A, B and C, Captains, Lieutenants, Sergeants, COPs and Patrol Officers) is 1 single unit.  If patrol is selected as part of the task force the requirements in #2 below must be completed.

 

   ALSO: Selection of a "Commander" (e.g., Special Operations Commander) as a Unit includes the official and their immediate office staff.  It does not include each of the subordinate units.

 

  2. For each of the 6 units selected from within the Virtual PD the student will be asked to

 

a)      Identify the unit and briefly describe its typical operational/administrative role and regular duties in a law enforcement agency

 

b)      Explain why the unit was chosen for this task force, what role it will play on the task force

 

If more than 6 units in the Virtual Police Department have a potential role on this task force, the student must select the 6 units having the most impact and/or being most useful in achieving the reduction in violent crime goal.

 

 3. Additionally, the student will identify 4 units in the Virtual Police Departmental units that will NOT be part of the task force. For each of these units not selected, the student will be asked to

 

a)     Identify the unit and briefly describe its typical operational/administrative role and regular duties in a law enforcement agency

 

b)    Explain why it was NOT chosen for this task force. 

 

4. To complete the 8 unit task force, the student will also identify 2 non-departmental units from the criminal justice system that should be included in some manner on the task force

 

a)      Identify the unit and briefly describe its typical operational/administrative role and regular duties in the criminal justice system

 

b)       Explain why the unit was chosen for this task force, what role it will play on the task force

 

 

 

Supportive outside resources is not a requirement for this paper. However, if you do use course materials or outside resources you must acknowledge them using appropriate American Psychological Association (APA) citation format.

 

 Again, the goal of this project is to give the student an opportunity to determine, analyze and assess the role of various police department units, their relationship to other units, and how their skills can be applied to counter criminal activity.

  • Four (4) FULL narrative pages, not including cover page and references page.
  • The cover page should include the name and number of the course, the name of the student, title of the project and the date of submission.
  • The composition may be a combination of outline and narrative with outline statements separated by no more than double spacing.
