While reviewing activity logs and police reports, Lt. Davidson, who’s in charge of the Greenwood Village patrol division, notices an increase in residential burglaries the previous month. The burglaries seem to be occurring sometime during the day when homeowners are normally at work, because they are being reported during the evening shift when residents return home. In addition, most of burglaries are occurring in one neighborhood on primarily the last two days of the work week. Lt. Davidson decides to call the afternoon patrol supervisor to find out what he knows. The supervisor tells the Lt. he is aware of the problem and has been assigning officers to patrol that neighborhood, but points out “there are a lot more of them then there are of us.” The investigations supervisor informs Lt. Davidson that he is also aware of the increase in burglaries. The supervisor tells Davidson they have forensics from several of the crime scenes, but no suspects. He speculates it might be kids because most of the losses are cigarettes, liquor, and small amounts of cash.
Lt. Davidson realizes that patrolling and reactive investigations usually have a minimal effect on preventing burglaries. He decides on a new approach.
Considering this scenario, write a well-crafted paper addressing the following questions:
- If you were the Lieutenant, describe the process you would take to analyze the problem and come up with a solution.
- Who should be involved in this problem-solving process? Explain why you chose who you did.
- How will you assess if your solution worked?
Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length (not including title or reference pages) and conform to APA. Include at least two, peer-reviewed scholarly references in addition to the course textbook.
