Annotated Outline for City Council Appearance

Assignment: Draft Annotated Outline for City Council Appearance (10 Points)

This week, you read about moral reasoning, implicit bias, and the power associated with the informal and formal cultures in justice agencies. How these concepts may or may not be managed in the justice organization is tangential to the success of any community partnership to address justice reform. Your readings should provide you with ideas about how to deal with the assignment for this week. Do not limit yourself to only these articles. You should search the University’s online library for other instructional papers on recruit instruction and moral reasoning. Assignment Instructions: Picture yourself as the administrator (Sheriff or Police Chief) of a large law enforcement agency. You have been appointed to the County’s new Racial Equity Team. Each governmental Department within the City and County are represented and have been tasked with the overall mission to identify issues, problems, and solutions in their departments and among their staff primarily to reform diversity training and policy. Members of the Racial Equity Team must address the local council to report how they might identify gaps, omissions, much need revisions in policy and training. For this assignment, you will construct an annotated outline specifically detailing the following: 1) Describe the current demographic of the citizens you serve. 2) Explain how implicit bias has impacted the culture of your organization and its effect on external stakeholders. 3) Describe the internal and external stakeholders who would be affected by policy and training reforms and identify their anticipated criticisms and concerns. 4) Address these concerns through police and training reforms (specifically mention implicit bias and how you will go about making these changes and assessing performance). You might also consider the demographic makeup of your Department as it relates to the demographic makeup of the community to anticipate questions directly aimed at implicit bias and the degree of its impact. An annotated outline consists of these major points supported by two or three paragraphs each. Support each point with a reference if necessary. The outline may be single or double-spaced depending upon how you might review it while standing at a podium in front of a council. As a suggestion, you would do well to review previous Department of Justice (DOJ) technical reviews to gather an idea of what it is the collaborate reforms dealing with racial inequality seem to suggest as a general body of literature. Based upon your assigned readings and independent study this week, you should draft your outline accordingly. Length: Other than the above, there is no rigid structure for an annotated outline. You should focus your degree of accuracy on how well your message will come across to a live audience. References: Include a minimum of five scholarly resource
