Research and select a criminal justice agency in your community in relation to outlining a strategic planning
process. Make sure you are able to access information about the agency for all the required parts of the
assignment. Do not use massive federal agencies, such as ATF or the FBI. Make sure you are using a
legitimately constituted criminal justice agency. This agency must be identified by name, as it will be the
foundation for upcoming assignments. Also, you cannot use any of the strategic plans that are shown in course
materials, especially the one from the Scottsdale, AZ Police Department. I suggest you review each week’s
assignment and course resources before committing to an agency.
Assess the public safety issues in your selected criminal justice organization as they correlate with the
agency’s mission, vision, and goals.
