You are a recent retiree from a neighboring state’s largest city police department, and you are looking for a challenge. You have pledged your commitment to the people of Middleton to clean up and modernize the department. It is your first week in office, and you are seated at your desk looking around at the pandemonium left in the wake of the recent political upset. Where do you begin?
This project has three parts:
Part A Critique the recruitment and hiring policy. The MCPD is down at least 50% in its hiring needs due to the recent cleanup. Before you rush to fill the vacancies, however, you must make sure your hiring and recruitment efforts are proper. Your first task is to review the department’s recruitment and hiring policy. It is out of date and, even worse, contains grave errors. The policy can be found at the end of this project description and is labeled Exhibit One. Referring to this Exhibit, you must do the following:
1.Print a copy of the policy.
2.Highlight five areas requiring action.
3.Explain each of the five problems, citing the reason it is a problem. (Is it in violation of a case or statute, etc.?)
4.Follow each problem with a recommendation for its revision. (Note: Each problem and its solution should take about one page to discuss.)
5.Prepare a bibliography using the APA format citing any sources you use for this part of the activity.
By looking in the index, you will find that your textbook has several references to recruitment and hiring policies, and you may also be able to find your State’s or another State’s policies on the Web. (40 points total for the problems and 40 points total for the solutions) (A 5-page response is required for Part A.)
