You have become the new Chief of Police in the city of Hope. Hope is a middle class, light manufacturing community of about 21, 000 residents. Currently the police department consists of 22 sworn officers which includes 4 sergeants, 1 detective, 1 captain and the chief. There are two civilian clerks. The police department uses the sheriff’s department for dispatching and for detention. The tenures of the recent chiefs of police have been efficient but unremarkable. There have been attempts to establish community policing as a norm but there have been no galvanizing issues that have brought the citizens together in a focused way. Property crime is low but higher than the mayor would like it to be, violent crime is rare. Citizen confidence in the police is about average. There are almost no complaints about police service but the average citizen would struggle to give an example of good police work.There are some signs that change is coming. An increasing number of young people from the surrounding area are coming to town on the weekends to frequent the one city park and many of them bring skate boards that they ride on public and private property. This is becoming increasingly annoying but there are no city ordinances prohibiting or restricting skate boarding nor is there an ordinance that restricts or regulates the use of the city park. A religious group has bought some ground in town and the rumor is that they are going to build a church. This group has been expanding rapidly in the country and some of the members of the established local churches are not happy about what they see as an intrusion on their territory. And lastly a group of recent immigrants have moved to the area and may soon be granted the right to work. Some of the business owners see this as a chance to hire cheaper labor. The current workers of those businesses are not happy at the thought of being replaced. There are rumors of protests being planned but nothing has happened yet. In general the city seems to be peaceful and productive but people are beginning to talk amongst themselves about some of these issues. The subject didn’t come up in your job interview, but since them the Mayor and some leading citizens have spoken to you privately about their concerns as to whether the police department is structured properly and capable of dealing with these issues. For this week’s assignment, prepare a 2-3 page paper, adhering to APA style guidelines giving specific details about how you would determine if the current police department structure is adequate to meet the current and upcoming needs. Describe in detail how would restructure your available resources, if necessary to make the best use of them for both now and the future.
