Evaluate elements of the decision-making process in criminal justice agencies
The court system of a medium-sized city has tasked you, a consultant hired to address organizational issues, with assembling a team to develop an improvement plan. The goal of this plan is to improve the channels of communication with the political body, department heads, personnel, judges, other police and federal agencies, and the community. A key issue identified by the presiding judge is a backlog of criminal cases.
The court system has been criticized for its poor communication. Your team is tasked with defining the problem areas from your own point of view. It is important for the political body to support the court system in its mission to dispense justice in a fair and impartial manner.
The presiding judge is looking for a strategy to improve both lines of communication and decision making. Improved communication is needed so better decisions can be made. Some of the ideas identified by the presiding judge include enhancement of communication between the prosecutor’s office, court administration, defense attorneys, and other court systems. The team may identify other ideas as it explores these issues.
