The community is facing an increasing level of insecurity. The public is complaining that the police department is applying slant measures in dealing with insecurity issues. Discrimination of minority groups based on color, social, and financial status comes as the most frequently raised concerns. The public is considering airing their views through demonstrations and campaigns if the matter is not solved and the police department reformed. A major bill enforcing discipline in the police ranks and pivotal reforms is necessary to solve the matter.
Influence of the legislature, the judicial system, and other state/city government agencies on the formulation and implementation of a specific policy
The federal government has distributed power among three arms of the government; the executive, judiciary, and the legislature. The legislature is responsible for the formation of the policies, the judiciary interprets the policies, and the executive arm applies the policies. In order to introduce a policy transforming the police department, the corporation of all three arms will be required especially the legislature that formulates the policies
The influence those interest groups, political parties and the media have on security policies
The interest groups, political parties, and the media have a central role to play as main critics of the policy change. These groups are helpful in educating the public. However, they face one major challenge; the burden of conflicting interests. The new policies to correct the police department will face a criticism from all interest groups. It will be supported and opposed.
Set of solutions for the governor to consider regarding a path forward with all these political players
In order to pass the necessary policies, a careful choice of policies and strong un-opposable arguments are required. The governor will have to choose policies that can obtain enough support among many legislatures. Establishing a team of legislatures to back the policies is the first stratagem to victory. However, things may change as the push for change progresses. Legislatures may take new fronts and oppose the policy vehemently based on the opinion and facts from other critics such as the media.
Secondly, it is important to make a good use of the media to reach the public and educate them on the relevance, need, and urgency of the policy. The media is a portentous tool for reaching the attentive public who will help in pushing for a change through opinion polls. Approaching the media requires a careful tact since the media can be used as a propaganda channeling tool to oppose the policies being advocated.
The Recommended Strategy to Win Support for the Agency’s Policy Agenda
The policy’s main strategy is to introduce decency and authority at the police department. This is the desire of the public. Based on this support from the public there is a likelihood of succeeding. The best strategy to get the necessary support is to collect public opinion on their view concerning the policy. Gathering a good number of signatures from the public supporting the policy will convince the legislature and others that the majority desires the change.
