You have just been selected as the chief of police of a fifty-officer department. The first day on the job, your boss, the city manager, hands you a file that relates to a complaint filed against one of your officers for excessive force. The complaining witness is an adult minority female. Her arm was broken when the officer was placing her under arrest for a simple assault she committed in his presence. You walk into your office and discover there is no formal internal affairs process in place. As a result, you decide to develop a formal process for conducting such internal investigations, after this issue is resolved.
On the basis of the above situation, conduct research and include a 6- to 8-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation on the major topics you believe should be included in such policy and procedure. In your presentation, share your responses to the following:
Explain why such written internal affairs policy and procedure are necessary.
Discuss who will conduct the internal investigations and who will make the final decision on the disposition.
Explain how the outcome will be communicated to the complainant.
Support your responses with examples. Cite any sources in APA format.
