*****MUST WRITE ABOUT THE HARTFORD POLICE DEPARTMENT (HARTFORD,CT)*****
For this assignment, choose a law enforcement or public safety organization that you are very familiar with to serve as the basis for this case study. This organization could be a current employer, past employer, or a prospective ideal future employer. Please note, it is totally acceptable to choose the same case study for this module that you previously chose in module two. The bulk of the application, analysis and related research will be unique to this module by virtue of the prompt.
This assignment will be 2.5 pages maximum, double-spaced, using standard fonts and margins. With so many types of agencies and professions represented in this program, there is no one structural model for the assignment format. Rather, choose the format (traditional academic essay, formal report, memo etc.) that is the best fit for your current profession. Your work will be graded on organization, content, evidence and argumentation regardless of format.
Research the municipality in which your chosen law enforcement or public safety agency exists. Identify 2-3 significant changes within this municipality that have occurred in the past 5, 10, maybe even 20 years. Has this municipality experienced significant economic, housing, demographic, transportation and/or political changes? Has this municipality experienced defining moments like natural disasters or large-scale/notable criminal events? Have the primary concerns of the public changed over time? Present reliable evidence to explore the changes that you identified.
Describe how your chosen law enforcement or public safety agency did or did not successfully adapt to these identified environmental changes.
Quality assignments will meaningfully integrate elements from both the assigned reading and the Escondido, California case study presented by Professor Loarie. Pay particular attention to the various conceptual frameworks presented in Chapter Three that describe the variety of ways in which organism-like organizations may adapt to their surroundings.
