Law Enforcement through Community Policing
As for now, you are trying your best to do everything right as a captain. The chief calls you into a meeting with the six other captains in the police department and explains to you that he is starting a new community policing unit in the police department. He explains that he will be selecting one of his six captains to be in charge of this new division, and it will be a promotion and a raise of $20,000 per year if selected. The police chief will select the new captain over the community unit based on a report they each submit to the chief. The report must answer all of the following questions:
What is the purpose of your community policing unit? Outline the goals of this new unit.
What will be the specific responsibilities of your unit? Explain.
What type of officers would you want working in your unit? Explain. Specifically, for which qualifications and experience would you be looking?
Where would you assign your officers to work? Why? Outline the areas that you would concentrate on to begin with, and explain why.
How would you gauge the success of your unit? Explain. What are the metrics and time line that you would use to measure success?
Your assignment is to prepare this report for the police chief. Make sure to answer all questions asked, and provide sufficient support for each of your responses.
