Imagine you work for a police agency and you have been asked to prepare a short guide on forces in society that cause police agencies to change. The guide will be used to help officers be aware of why policies and practices change over time, so they will be more accommodating to changes in the future.
Create an 8-10 slide PowerPoint or Prezi presentation that does the following:
- Research and explain how socioeconomic forces of change affect police agencies. Give examples and cite sources that support your claims.
- Research and explain how social values of the community affect police agencies. Give examples and cite sources that support your claims.
- Research and explain how grass-roots organizations affect community change. Give examples and cite sources that support your claims.
- Explain some best practices police agencies can use to manage political forces and relationships with the various stakeholders to whom they are accountable.
