Final Research Project
<br />
<br />Based on the Problem-Oriented Policing, identify a real life or hypothetical problem in your community that can be addressed through a problem-solving model or method.
<br />
<br />The problem-solving project can be viewed from your point of view as a community member or from a Police Officer's perspective (your choice).
<br />
<br />You may choose and utilize one of the below Problem-Solving Model:
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />The S.A.R.A model: A Four-State Problem-Solving Process to identify the problem and come up with an effective and reasonable solution.
<br />
<br />Scanning, Analysis, Response, Assessment
<br />
<br />The LAPD has historically used the problem-solving model “SARA” to address problems in the community.
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />The C.A.P.R.A model, was used by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) that focuses on:
<br />
<br />Clients, Acquiring/Analyzing Information, Partnership, Response and Assessment of Action
<br />
<br />Training next generation, the LAPD has adopted the “values-infused” model – CAPRA (Clients, Acquiring & Analyzing Information, Partnerships, Response, and Assessment)— that integrates critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
<br />
<br />This emphasizes that the client or community is at the center of every situation trying to be resolved and to working closely with them as partners in the overarching public safety mission.
<br />
<br />Officers should consider the two types of clients in their problem solving:
<br />
<br />Direct Clients: Those who you interact with directly at various points during service delivery or in the work team/unit.
<br />Indirect Clients: Those not directly involved in an incident but who have an interest in its outcome.
<br />Considering both client types will ensure the Department provides quality service, protection, enforcement, and prevention in partnership to obtain collective efficacy.
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />Final grade will be based on:
<br />
<br />Research Effort (PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION and SOLUTION)
<br />Content
<br />Analysis by using one of the models
<br />Writing Mechanics
<br />What factors and conditions were unique to your RESEARCH?
<br />
<br />What specific techniques and resources are available to assist you in supporting and building better and safer community?
<br />
<br />What technique or resource were implemented in your solution in order to effectively combat your community problem?
<br />
<br />Your research must identify your STAKEHOLDERS.
<br />
<br />Your research must provide a plausible and realistic solution to the problem (Conflict).
<br />
<br />Based on your research analysis, what would be the impact of your solution in your community?
<br />
<br />Your solution must be aligned with the law.

<br />This assignment requires outside research!
<br />Use only credible sources, state in your paper, why the source was credible.
<br />This assignment is limited to 7 pages including the title and reference page.
<br />
<br />This requires a concise writing style that is comprehensive yet free of “clutter,” e.g., no excess wordage or unnecessary expression. Use the commonly accepted format (APA, MLA or Chicago) for college writing assignments, cite all your sources, including on-line references.
<br />
<br />The best papers will demonstrate the students understanding about Police-Community Relations and will provide critical analysis of the factors that lead to success or failure.
<br />
<br />NOTE: Wikipedia, similar open-source reference sites and other pop culture websites such as Yahoo answers, Answers.com etc. cannot be used as an assignment source for this class.
<br />Here are some reasons:
<br />- I have found information that is contradictory within the same article on occasion.
<br />- Students often use, for example, Wikipedia blindly with no regard for content.
<br />- Wikipedia is an open source. Anybody can edit information for any reason, purpose, or agenda
<br />- Most information is authorless and cannot be verified.
<br />- Some of the information has been found to be wrong and/or misleading.
<br />
<br />HINT: You can, however, use these sources as a starting point as they will usually cite the original source that you can then check for yourself.
