Identify key areas that you see as being important in creating public awareness of organized crime groups.

Citizens often have little, if any, knowledge about domestic organized crime and the operations of such organizations. Much of what the public knows comes from the media. Many people are unaware that domestic organized crime groups are those that operate within the boundaries of the United States and often comprise US and foreign citizens. Police officials are in key positions to help educate the public about the business of domestic organized crime. Community forums are excellent venues for educating the public about how organized crime groups function. This includes identifying what the groups do to generate profits.
Basic public awareness about how organized crime groups operate is critical to maintaining safe communities. Police administrators have the responsibility of informing citizens about what to look for to identify and report suspected domestic organized criminal activities.
The following scenario is designed to help the public gain a basic understanding of how to identify domestic organized crime groups.
Community policing efforts are critical in creating a safe environment for citizens. You are a mid-level police supervisor. As part of a team-oriented community policing approach, you have been selected by your police chief to hold a community forum where you will be responsible for educating the public about domestic organized crime groups so that the public will know how to identify such groups in the community.
To complete this assignment, use your textbook and the Argosy University online library resources to identify specific community policing efforts. Find at least one effective community policing effort you can describe at the community forum.
Submission Details:
By the due date assigned, in a minimum of 250 words, post to the Discussion Area your responses to the following:

Identify at least three key areas that you see as being important in creating public awareness of organized crime groups.
Provide a rationale for selecting the three key areas that you will share with the public.
Describe at least one effective community policing effort against organized crime you found in your research.

How does a new legal interpretation resulting from a courts decision on an existing law related to court procedures, and how does the passage of a new law affect court administration?

 
The objective of this assignment is to enable you to demonstrate your understanding of factors that should be considered in policy development to ensure that legal requirements are met and that best practices in management are applied to court management, specifically. Write an essay of 3–4 pages in which you consider the following questions:

How does a court system cope with a “changing of the guard” when a new administration is elected and key executives and managers are replaced, and/or when policy changes direction as a new political party assumes power?
How does a new legal interpretation resulting from a court’s decision on an existing law related to court procedures, and how does the passage of a new law affect court administration?
What kinds of management best practices would you, as a court administrator, implement to ensure appropriate levels of continuity, efficiency, effectiveness, and fairness when significant changes occur that impact the court system?

Your response to these questions should focus on either the federal courts or a state court system of your choosing to limit the scope of your essay.
