Decision Making Process in ACA

 Decision Making Process in ACA Footer notes Slide 2 Founded in 1870, the American Correctional Association (ACA) has been at the forefront of prison reforms and expansion in the United States (American Correctional Association (ACA), 2016).

Creating Policy -Steelhead Police Department

The security and safeness of the citizens of each county and country are paramount to the country, and that is the main reason as to why different states have various police force so that they can maintain law and order in their areas of jurisdiction. However, despite the duty to keep the entire population safe and protecting them from internal attacks, the police force should also take caution of their health and lives given the violent nature of their job and the police force sector.

In order to prioritize staffing within the Patrol Division and considering the reduction in staff, there is need to employ leaner and more efficient processes. One way of doing this is to engage the community with an aim of identifying the critical areas of concern. Engaging the community will entail a detailed process of involving the community in the organization’s planning process (Wilson, 2010).  Community consultation will enable the department to identify and concentrate operations in issues of greatest concern among the community members. For instance, the community can assist the organization to establish areas with high insecurity levels that require deployment of the Patrol Division, rather than patrolling the entire area. Another plan of prioritizing staffing entails using the...
