Stakeholders in Policy Change

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. A major bill enforcing discipline in the police ranks and pivotal reforms is necessary to solve the matter.

The Role of government Agencies

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 Role of Interest Groups

The interest groups, political parties, and the media have a central role to play as main critics of the policy change.[1] These groups are helpful in educating the public[2]. However, the new policies to correct the police department will face a criticism from all interest groups.

Solutions

In order to pass the necessary policies, a careful choice of policies and strong un-opposable arguments are required.[3] 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[4].

The Recommended Strategy

The policy’s main strategy is to introduce decency and authority at the police department. This is the desire of the public. Gathering a good number of signatures from the public supporting the policy will convince the legislature and others that the majority desires the change.
