  • #1 Malfunction Junction

    Junction City, a rapidly growing community of 150,000 residents, is an agriculturally based area

    located in the center of the state, about 20 miles from the ocean. The city gains a population of

    10,000 to 20,000 visitors a day during the summer months, when ocean recreation is a popular

    activity. Owing to local growth in the meat-packing industry, the city’s demographics are changing

    rapidly, especially its Hispanic population. The downtown area of the city has slowly deteriorated

    over the past few years, resulting in increased crime and disorder. A property tax cap has resulted

    in reduced revenues to local jurisdictions, and the recent recession has taken a substantial toll on

    the city’s budget; the result has been significant reductions in staffing. The police department now

    has 100 sworn and 35 nonsworn personnel, and has experienced its share of budget cuts and

    staff reductions. The chief of police of 10 years’ duration retired recently, leaving an agency that is

    still very traditional in nature and has a growing number of desk-bound administrative personnel

    and degree of rank structure (corporal, sergeant, lieutenant, captain, deputy chief, commander,

    and chief). The morale of the department is poor due to the increases in workload resulting from

    tourism and agricultural expansion. You have been hired as the new police chief. As a result of the

    current situation, the city manager and council are calling for an emergency meeting with you to

    discuss the future of the department. They explain that at a recent council retreat, they heard a

    consultant’s presentation on the implementation and operation of community policing and problem

    solving. They are now seeking your views on this strategy, its potential for Junction City, and

    how you might approach its implementation. (Note: They emphasize that you are to explain how

    you might reorganize the police department to move away from its current traditional organization,

    with only one police facility and its administration- and rank-laden status.)
