Criminal justice planning
According to the final project scenario, the critical problem is identified as the rising tension and
fights between the police department and the minority groups in Fictionland.
Part A Need for change
The need for change is well noted through the tension brought about by the citizens while filing
complaints to the police department against the police for their brutality. The issue, as mentioned above is
justice through the criticism of the police department by the Center for justice organization, which is
demanding and fighting for justice of the public. Through the need for change, the minority members are
fighting off the police for taking part in the illegal racial discrimination and acting unresponsive to the
complaints forwarded about police harassments (Marat, 2018). To define the problem, I would collect the
reported complaints of the minority against the police. Also, I would analyze the similarity of the offences
to justify the resemblance of the situations, reflecting the same causative agent.
Part B problematic cause
I believe that the core cause of the tensions and commotions between the minority and the
Fictionland police department is racial discrimination. The facts vividly define the problem that the police
department in Fictionland consists of the majority Caucasian staff with only two minority staff members.
These Caucasian staff members have taken part in harassing the minority citizens and severally engaged
in brutality even at the traffic stops. However, despite the increasing number of complaints amounting to
seventy-two from the minority citizens, the Internal Affairs finds no evidence against the Caucasian
police officers. The Caucasian police officers feel that they dominate the residence and hence try to
oppress the minority community.
Part C Stakeholders
CRIMINAL JUSTICE PLANNING AND INNOVATION

The relevant stakeholders in this issue are the minority community and the police department of
the Fictionland state. Both parties are consequently affected as the minority community are under an
abusive power where they are denied their rights and freedom. In their quest for freedom, the minority
group is highly interested in a just society where the laws can protect their needs for expression and free
movement. On the other side, the police department suffers a poor reputation not only to the specific state
but also in the nation. Also, it is regretful that the members of the community cannot trust the affected
police department for justice anymore (Van Ness, 2016). The police officers are interested in the quest for
power, superiority over other races and dominance in Fictionland.
Part D Supporters for change and resistors
In the presented scenario, the minority community races and the Center for Justice Organization
are criticizing the racial segregation in the town whereas the local police department and the Internal
Affairs investigation team are resisting the need for change as they dismiss the forwarded cases.

Fictionland Police Department
Name
Institutional Affiliation
The goal statement of Fiction land Police Department
• The goal statement that explains the desire of
the Fiction Land Police Department is,
“protecting all the residents of the city without
favor or discrimination irrespective of racial,
social and gender differences.”
• This goal statement explains the goals that the
police department has towards the members of
the public.
Specific Objectives for Goals Set.
• The specific objectives that will ensure that the
goals set are achieved are treating the minority
groups just like other residents so that their trust
can be won back.
• The minority group does not trust police officers
because of the past experiences with them and
thus the police should treat them with dignity so
that they can start relating well.
• Within a period of three months, their trust should
have been won.
• The other objective is to win the trust of the
minority groups so that when there is a
problem in the society, then the minority
groups will be willing to report to the police.
• This is not possible currently because the
relationship between the police and the
minority has already been affected.
Goal Setting Approach
• The ideal approach for setting the goals is a
top-down approach whereby the senior
management plans the goals of the department
then the juniors are made to work towards
achieving the goals.
• This move will ensure that the juniors are
doing as expected hence they will not mistreat
the minority members of the society (Lim,
2019).
The Intervention Hypothesis
• The intervention hypothesis is that to achieve
the goals that have been set when the police
officers do anything that does not enable the
department to achieve its goals like mistreating
minority members of the society, then the
police officer is made to be responsible for his
or her deeds.
Conclusion
• In conclusion, Fictionland Police Department has
to make changes s as to ensure that all the citizens
are protected equally and thus this will promote
their relationship with the minority group.
• When the relations between them and the
minority groups have improved, it will be
possible to protect them since they will be
reporting cases to the police who in turn will
respond hence protecting them.

Final Project Scenario
Tensions between the minority community and the police are regrettable problems in the United
States. One city, Fictionland, has experienced tremendous population growth and demographic
changes in the past 50 years. The Fictionland Police Department has been criticized by a
powerful citizen-based organization, Center for Justice, for engaging in illegal racial profiling
tactics and for being generally unresponsive to complaints about police harassment and police
brutality allegedly committed against members of the minority community.
Details
The Fictionland Police Department in New Jersey was established in 1945 to deal with the
community’s growing concern with traffic congestion and increasing crime rates. Fictionland’s
population in 1945 was 5,000 and predominantly Caucasian. According to the latest census
figures, Fictionland’s population is now 68,000 and racially diverse. Approximately 25 percent of
the Fictionland population is a racial minority. The latest projections suggest that if this trend
continues, at some point, Fictionland with be 51 percent white and 49 percent racial minority.
The department had 14 full-time police officers on staff in 1945, and all were Caucasian. Today,
the department has 60 full-time officers with only two minority officers on staff. Over the past five
years, members of the Center for Justice have claimed that Fictionland police have harassed
many minority citizens and, on several occasions, have engaged in acts of police brutality. In
particular, the Center for Justice claimed that minorities have been the victims of racial profiling in
traffic stops. Seventy-two members of the minority community have filed complaints to the
Fictionland Police Department claiming that they have been pulled over without just cause. In
each instance, Internal Affairs (IA) has investigated the complaints and found no wrongdoing.
In one of the many incidents of racial profiling, last year a complaint was lodged against Officer
Tim Smith, a fifteen-year veteran of the force, for racial profiling and police brutality against
Antoine Jones, a prominent business owner. Again, IA Unit investigated the complaint and found
no wrongdoing and took no action. Approximately two weeks after the IA handed down their
decision on the complaint against Officer Tim Smith, a damaging videotape was leaked to the
press from a whistle-blower in the Fictionland Police Department. The videotape showed Officer
Tim Smith following Antoine Jones’car. You could hear Officer Smith saying, “Homeboy in a
Mercedes, must be a crack dealer.”on the videotape prior to turning his siren on. Officer Smith
approached Mr. Jones and said, “Boy, give me your license and registration now!”When Mr.
Jones complied and handed the documents over, Officer Smith threw the license to the ground.
Officer Smith ordered Mr. Jones to get out of his car and to pick up his license. Mr. Jones was
deferential and complied with the order. The videotape clearly shows, without any provocation,
Officer Smith pepper-spraying Mr. Jones in the face. Mr. Jones was handcuffed and taken into
custody. The arrest report, prepared by Officer Smith, stated that Mr. Jones swung at Officer
Smith and resisted arrest. Eight similar complaints against Officer Smith had been filed in the
past. Each of the complaints was investigated, with IA Unit exonerating Officer Smith on each
occasion.

The Center for Justice claims that the IA Unit is unresponsive and tends to be dismissive of their
complaints. The reputation of the Fictionland Police Department has been sullied, and members
of the minority community, to this day, do not trust their local police department. Some members
of the community are reluctant to contact the police because of negative encounters they have
experienced in the past.
Final Project Assignments
The final project assignments will include identifying the problem in the scenario, developing a
response policy or program to rectify the situation, monitoring and evaluating the developed
policy or program from weeks 1 through 6.
Students will be asked to analyze the scenario to identify organizational problems that might have
created this tension and to develop a response (policy or program) that will rectify the situation.
Moreover, students will be asked to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the policy/program
that was implemented.
