Required Text

Peak, K., Gaines, L. & Glensor, R. (2010). Police supervision and management in an era of community policing (3rd ed.) Upper saddle, NJ: Pearson Education, Inc. ISBN: 9780135154663

(p. 287)Case Study #1 Repressing the Rumor Mill

The chief of police chairs a monthly meeting involving both union and command personnel to discuss issues that concern both sides and in an attempt to quash any departmental rumors before they adversely impact morale. The meetings have been ongoing for about six months, and they are cordial and productive in nature. Yet, no notes have ever been taken to document the discussions held. Today, however, the chief expresses a concern to the group that while the meetings appear to be going well and many issues are being resolved, the rumor mill seems to have become rampant with misinformation—including threats of grievances about perceived issues within all ranks. The chief is obviously very concerned and frustrated, and asks that both the union president and command staff discuss ways in which communication may be improved to reduce these rumors and the threats of grievances.

Questions for Discussion

1.

What might be some of the underlying reasons for the obvious breakdown in communications among the officers?

2.

What mechanisms could be put in place to resolve the rumor and grievance issues?

3.

Whose responsibility is it to resolve these issues?

(p. 311) Case Study #2 Scheduling School

You are to assume the role of Sergeant Doe in the Gotham City Police Department. This is your first shift since leaving for a two-week vacation; the date is June 10. Not counting yourself or your middle-managers, you are in charge of a 12-person patrol team and work 4:00 P.M. to midnight (swing shift), with Sundays and Mondays off. Due to the increased activities that occur during the summer months, it is the policy of your department to not allow more than two officers to take vacation or training leave at a time. You have two senior officers (Officers A and B) off on vacation for the entire month of June. Some urgent scheduling issues have come up for the week of June 16-22. Your lieutenant needs you to work up the swing-shift schedule. The following issues have arisen:

  • Officer H is on vacation for the week.
  • Officer K injured her knee over the weekend and is on sick leave.
  • Officers C and D have to teach at the academy on Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Officer D’s wife is having surgery on Friday. He has requested Saturday/Sunday as days off.

The Human Resources Division is offering Workplace Violence Training on Friday, June 19th, and wants as many officers as possible to attend. No officers have Fridays off, so you schedule as many officers as possible to attend this training. Officer L is the regional gang unit liaison and Officer J is the regional drug unit liaison, but both are available for other assignments as exigencies arise. Your lieutenant wants to know if you can maintain minimum staffing of 6 officers per day without any overtime expense.

Questions for Discussion

1.

What would you report to your chief regarding what are the most popularly used—and not used—shift schedules now employed in the U.S.?

2.

Compared to the current situation, what are some of the advantages and disadvantages that officers would likely realize if the department adopted the 4/10 or the 3/12 shift schedule? If it discontinued the shift rotations? What are the implications if Industry City is already engaged in, or is about to implement, the community policing and problem solving strategy?

3.

What could be underlying the night-shift officers’ traffic accident, fatigue, and citizen complaint problems, and what might be done to analyze and correct them?

4.

What labor considerations might be posed by a shift rotation or some non-traditional shift scheduling plan?

5.

What protections do federal laws apply to those police officers who are returning to Industrial City following their active duty military service upon their return?

(case study number 3 p.334). Case Study #1 C.S.I.: Boone City

John McCauley recently was promoted to the rank of captain in charge of criminal investigations in Boone City. Previously, he was a lieutenant in patrol and earlier in his career he was a detective; therefore, he has limited experience in managing criminal investigations. The detectives in the unit view him suspiciously because of his lack of investigative experience. The unit is divided into several sections: burglary, crimes against persons (homicide, sexual assault, and robbery), narcotics, and general investigations, which includes fraud, cybercrimes, vice, and identity theft. The veteran detectives and supervisors have assured McCauley that things are working smoothly and that they will show him the ropes. On the other hand, the assistant chief in charge of the operations bureau advises him that the previous captain was not a strong leader and allowed the detectives to dictate policies and priorities for the unit. He wants McCauley to take a more assertive role in the unit, increase the detectives’ clearance rates, and generally do more thorough investigations of a larger proportion of cases.

Questions for Discussion

1.

How can Captain McCauley evaluate the overall effectiveness of his unit?

2.

McCauley wants to provide the assistant chief with a plan of action. What should be the major elements in this plan?

3.

How should McCauley go about evaluating individual detectives?

All questions for each case need answered, there needs a introduction and conclusion list references

Must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library
