City North CJA/365 Version 3 University of Phoenix Material City Council Proposal You have received a memo from your city manager advising that all city budgets will be cut by 7% and this includes the public safety budget. The Chief of Police has assigned you to assemble a team and present a budget proposal outlining the 7% percent (minimum) of the police department’s budget that you propose to be cut. The chief has charged your team with presenting the how, when, and where the cuts or monies will be applied. The presentation should be administered from an inclusive approach considering an overall criminal justice scope along with community and external stakeholder elements. In essence this assignment should not be taken with a narrow view simply from a policing perspective. Create a detailed presentation on your proposed budgetary cuts as well as an executive summary of your overall budget plan. You have the flexibility to improvise or realistically create information or details not included in the designated city materials. Critical elements of this assignment focus on your budget teams ability to understand differing ways and means to apply budgetary process and related cuts. Budget approach and cuts often involve tough decisions including assignments, personnel, equipment, training, and other factors affecting daily work habits and conditions of employees. Include the following in your executive summary and presentation: • • • • • The executive summary must be between 1,050 and 1,400 words. Your Power Point presentation must be 18 – 22 slides and approximately 25 minutes in length. Format your executive summary and presentation consistent with APA guidelines. Incorporate multi-media elements into your presentation. Ensure you properly cite your materials in the executive summary and presentation. Copyright © 2016 by University of Phoenix.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
