CJA/473 - Managing Criminal Justice Personnel

Malfunction Junction

1. Yes, I think it will be a big problem if traditional officers and supervision still

continued to work in this organization without change. Because they are not looking

Forward to change within this organization, they rather continued doing the same routine

as unusual. A police department or any organization should always be like a mirror

image to the community which my officers will serve and protect. As the new chief of

police I plan to go to the city meeting with an open mind, and listen to what everybody

has to say. Listening to everyone concerns is important in more ways then I can say right

station organization will help the department out in a good way so that it will not be

will go over each staff job title and start assigning each person to their units so I can

know if I need more employees or will have to lay some people off until the work puts

back up or at least until I figure out the departments budget plan and a way to fix it so
