Competency 1: Utilizing police communication principles in community relations
Take for instance a country or a city that has the problem of high crime rates that
seem difficult to contain. The same situation or form of crime keeps reoccurring in a specific
area, say arson or deliberate destruction of public and private property. Every action taken by the
police proves ineffective and irresponsive, evident by the status quo. These actions involve
indiscriminately beating and arresting of young people, who are said to be the most likely
culprits. The task at hand here is to switch things up and adopt a system termed “communityoriented policing,” which means the use of a certain set of tactics or basic philosophy of policecommunity relations.
The necessary actions that need to be taken here may involve some discussion
sessions or collaboration between the community and the police, to define, prioritize and finally
solve the problem. In this case, the police may hold a meeting with the concerned party and
allow them to air their views on what they think may be the trigger of the series of these events.
Once these actions have been taken, they may lead to the discovery of the root
cause of the problem. For instance, the police may find out that the increasing destruction of
property is a reaction of people towards the lack of public social services such as power outages
or the lack of water and sanitation services. Other related issues that may come up include the
citizens’ disapproval of the way the police force handles some situations, such as the incidents of
police brutality. In the end, the situation may be reversed completely or to some extent.
Competency 2: Applying decision-making and leadership skills in a police administration
environment
Police administrators refer to those people who have the authority to issue policies
in the organizations they are in, as well as the managers who have the role of bridging the gap

between street-level personnel and the organization overseers. These individuals are responsible
for dealing with crisis and shifts in their environments. The decisions they have to make is
different from the ones made by on-site decisions, which are often arrived at by law enforcement
officers (Steinberg, 2016).
Situations that require good leadership and decision making skills include the
responsibility to handle financial resources appropriately. This duty involves dealing with
ethical challenges which shape the perceptions of the police to the public. In such situations, the
media is up in arms, and the police administration is always on the limelight for any wrongdoing
or shortcomings, and, therefore, it may impact a lot of pressure to the leadership in terms of the
next decisions that need to be made. The police have been subject to constant video and
audiotaping and photography in their line of duty when they interact with the public. In most
cases, the public is biased and such events are magnified and become the focal point of public
discussions.
It is the chief of police and administrative body that can contain the decision and
prevent further harm. The administrators need to develop and agree on a process that addresses
sensitive ethical issues to uphold their status. For this to happen, it will be required that the chief
of police be actively involved in the process of effecting ethical programs to his members. There
is also the need for transparency of their decision making by being able to explain and justify
their reasons behind these decisions.
Competency 3: Analyzing the culture of police organizations from a leadership perspective
There is an existing relationship between the leadership and organizational culture
in any police organization. The organizational culture of a police organization is what
distinguishes it from others. It also refers to the climate that they develop when dealing with the

public. This culture has, in so many instances, been proven to be a key factor affecting the
leadership of an organization. Certain mechanisms have been put in place through which the
values of a leader become known to their followers. The followers can discern their leadership’s
values and assumptions by looking at: what he/she pays close atte...
