Week 4 Case Study
University City Police Department has problems with officer misconduct that may lead to civil lawsuits. When Lou Tennent accepted the position of chief of police for University City, the city manager, Hardy Harr, had him come to his office for a meeting with the mayor.
While in the city manager’s office, Hardy Harr said, “Lou, the reason the city council selected you as chief of police was not only for your exemplar record but you are an outsider. The city council was hopeful that someone with your background and expertise would have some innovative ideas that would help clean up the police department. Unfortunately, the city is looking at several civil lawsuits due to officer misconduct.”
The mayor, Jed I. Night said, “Lou, I do not want to put you on the defensive your first day, but how do you plan on preventing future mishaps?”
Before Lou Tennent could answer the mayor’s question…
Hardy Harr interrupted and shook Lou’s hand and said, “Welcome aboard, let me show you to your office.” Hardy Harr quickly directed Lou out of his office and down the hall. While walking to Lou’s office, the city manager said, “The former chief was asked to step down, which caused the vacancy for the position of chief. After he left three of his officers quit the same day.” Hardy Harr opened the door and said; “Here you go, if you need anything, my office is right down the hall,” and he walked away.”
