Project #74296 - Chief of police essay

Project 2 - Research Paper

Background: 

You are a candidate for the position of Chief of the Virtual Police Department. You have researched the department and you have learned about the organization of the department.

The Virtual City Police Department was created 63 years ago. The department has emerged as one of the primary policing agency in the state. It has become a modern police department with 155 sworn officers. There are 70 civilian employees appointed to positions ranging from clerical support to correctional officers to crime scene investigators. The department is considered “medium” size in the spectrum of police departments across the country. (The organizational chart is the same as the chart for Project 1.)

You are informed that the Mayor is keenly interested in Community Policing; an operational approach to law enforcement she feels will make a difference in the public safety in Virtual.  The mayor has asked you to prepare a position paper for her that will either affirm her intention to adopt Community Policing or dissuade her from this initiative. She has asked that you present both the pros and cons of Community Policing and conclude with your judgment about which course to take.

Assignment:

As part of your application for Chief of Police the mayor has asked you to prepare a position paper for her that will either affirm her intention to adopt Community Policing or dissuade her from this initiative. She has asked that you present both the pros and cons of Community Policing and conclude with yourrecommendation.

 You are aware that the out-going chief of police has fallen out of favor with the Mayor resulting in his departure over the issue of Community Policing. Unfortunately you do not yet know which side of the issue the  former chief favored. Do you include an interview with the former chief as part of your topic research? If so, why so; if not, why not?
