Critical Thinking Assignment (100 Points)
Important! Read First
Choose one of the following two assignments to complete this week. Do not do both assignments. Identify your assignment choice in the title of your submission.
Identify a problem you are experiencing at work that affects the unit as a whole (examples might include a certain type of crime that keeps occurring, lack of qualified personnel or resources to adequately complete a job, a problematic coworker, etc.).
For this assignment, produce a well-written paper that addresses the following:
How do you know this is a problem? What have you done to verify it is an actual problem and not just perceived by you as a problem?
Describe the process you would take to analyze the problem and come up with a solution.
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 CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.). Include at least two, peer-reviewed scholarly references in addition to the course textbook. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references.
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?
