7-1 Discussion: Police Officer Accountability
This module concentrates on the history of administrative theory and organizational leadership/management. After reading Chapters 8 and 9, write an initial post in which you address the following:
You have recently been hired as the police chief in Brady City. The city council fired the former chief due to his inability to address the ongoing poor performance within the department and citizen complaints about police officer conduct. Outline a strategy that you would employ to change the culture of the police department and increase police officer accountability.
Respond to at least two of your peers by proposing a complementary motivational plan and a corrective action for their force. Use at least one administrative theory from Chapter 8 in your responses. Discuss how you would motivate the police officers to increase their performance standards and, using the information from Chapter 9, describe how you would hold them accountable.
