Proposal to Create a Police DepartmentActual Assignment

  • ï‚·  Your assignment is to establish a police department for our yet to be named city. You will also be responsible to name the agency.

  • ï‚·  As a newly created police department, you do not have a police union involved. The actual budget for your police department must not exceed $30 million dollars.

  • ï‚·  You are to employ the number of personnel you need to deliver professional and competent police services to the citizens of our city. You must determine the number of sworn (officers) and non-sworn (civilian) personnel you will hire, inclusive of any minimum standards you wish to implement; you can choose any states’ Police Standards to follow, but you must meet or exceed those that are established. If you are using a particular state’s requirements, you must identify that state. Salaries and benefits must be established and justified within your proposal. A brief job description must also be prepared for the various classifications of employees; e.g. police officer, communication operator, desk officer, property clerk, detective, secretarial staff, etc.

  • ï‚·  Your proposal should begin with a “Mission Statement” and proceed with a clear and concise “Description of Services” that your department will provide. You must determine the various divisions, sections, and units that will be required to effectively accomplish your intended mission. For each division and subsequent sub-unit established, you will cite the responsibilities of each, including specific performance indicators. Within your proposal, the city manager has asked you to submit an organizational chart for the entire department, along with separate organizational charts for the various divisions you have recommended.

  • ï‚·  It is imperative that you provide a detailed budget for your entire department. It is recommended that you begin with a line-item format and proceed into a zero-based, performance indicator format. For the purpose of this project, the following costs have already been calculated for you:

o Complete benefits package=$2,000 per sworn employee, $1,300 per non-sworn employee

o Motor vehicle fuel=Bulk rate @ $2.90 per gallon o Weapons and Uniforms=$1,000 per officer

ï‚· You are expected to personally submit your proposal for the new city police department, inclusive of all aspects of your budge to the city council for their approval. You must be

prepared to thoroughly defend your proposal. Additionally, you can be certain that you will experience intensive questioning by the city manager.

  • ï‚·  There is no specific length for your paper, but it must thoroughly address all of the issues involved with the creation of a model police department. If you determine the need for a Policy and Procedure Manual for the police department, it will be necessary to document how the system will operate and what General Orders, Rules and Regulations, or Standard Operating Procedures are necessary. NOTE: It is not necessary to draft actual General Orders and Rules and Regulations, but you must identify the categories (example: Sick Leave, Vehicle Usage, Informant Handling, Confidential Funds, etc). Make sure your list is complete!

  • ï‚·  In developing a modern and progressive police agency, there exists a need to consider state of the art computer technology for overall efficiency. Just as important is the need to consider implementing innovative policing programs that provide personalized services while keeping in touch with the concerns of the community.

  • ï‚·  Your proposal should discuss the concept of community based policing and the feasibility of incorporating this type of program within the police department. Problem-oriented policing and differential police response should also be addressed. Additionally, the civilianization of certain traditional sworn positions should also be considered; i.e. front desk officer, forensic specialists, victim advocates, etc.

  • ï‚·  Another consideration is if the proposal should include an investigative division. Will the investigators specialize in specific criminal investigation categories or will they be generalist and available for any type of assignment? You must identify their responsibility and determine if there will be a case-management system for follow-up investigations.

  • ï‚·  In order to effectively address the requirements of this assignment, you are expected to research the various issues identified above, along with any other issues that may arise in the preparation of this proposal.

  • ï‚·  Finally, when considering your personnel requirement, please consider the concept of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity
