Place yourself into the position of a police chief in a large urban setting, with a substantial minority community. Your department has had a few minor controversial incidents, and you believe it is only a matter of time before a major one occurs. A review of departmental statistics, along with other information you’ve gathered, leads you to believe your officers are beginning to fall into this Ferguson Effect category.
Draft a 1500-word paper directed at your command staff, to provide them guidance and direction on how the department will attempt the delicate balance of aggressive policing in a community that is becoming more resistant, and on a department where officers are becoming more and more fearful of becoming the next Darrin Wilson, the officer involved in the Ferguson shooting. Former Officer Wilson, although literally cleared of all allegations, has spoken in the media about how he has not been able to find steady employment, not only in law enforcement, but anywhere.
Specifically address how you will move forward with police-community partnerships, especially in the minority districts, and how you can positively impact your officers morale and persuade them that aggressive and proactive policing is still the order of the day in your agency. Ultimately, this paper will be used by your command staff as the guiding light toward achieving the vision you desire as chief in this most challenging era. Please remember to specifically address the values that the community has expressed, the values the police department is trying to promote, where the values come into conflict and those that are in common.
