good morning
Weegy: good morning to you too User: List and define all seven elements of police organization structure, Discuss the importance of these elements and explain which one or ones you feel are more relevant and why. Weegy: Police agencies are not only defined by their styles, but also by their structures. According to Robert Langworthy, structure is "the framework on which a police organization arranges its resources to conduct its activities" (p. 17). [ The following seven elements are the core dimensions of a police organization's structure (adapted from Langworthy and from Maguire): Vertical Differentiation: The nature of the hierarchy, including the number of command layers and the social distance between layers. Occupational Differentiation: The extent to which the organization relies on employees with specialized occupational skills. Functional Differentiation: The degree to which the organization divides its work into specialized functions. Nearly all police agencies have separate divisions for patrol, investigations, and administration. The further they divide these divisions into more specialized subunits, the more functionally differentiated they are. Spatial Differentiation: The spread of the organization within its jurisdiction.

Administrative Intensity: The proportion of employees assigned to administrative support functions (like human resources or computing) as opposed to core tasks such as patrol or investigations. Formalization: The extent to which an organization relies on formal written policies and procedures rather than informal guidelines such as tradition or friendship. Centralization: The extent to which decisions within an organization are concentrated at the top of the hierarchy. Police organizations adopt different structural configurations. Some have up to ...

List the traits of an effective leader and discuss why these traits are important to the effectiveness of a law enforcement agency.
Weegy: In other words, the quality of leadership is reflected not only by the leader, by also in the officers the leader leads. His or her appearance, spirit, bearing, demeanor, words and actions suggest he or she is a leader. [ And, the work that is done by the subordinates mirrors what the leader does as supervisor. Good leadership motivates subordinates to do a good job. Those who are led in an effective and competent manner, enjoy their work, and take pride in their accomplishments.Good leaders create the process by which subordinates become loyal and interested in carrying out the daily tasks of law enforcement. ] (More)

GOOD MORNING!
Weegy: good morning to you too User: What are the current concerns with the traditional problem use-of-force continuum? Weegy: Other than the apparent conflict with the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Fourth Amendment, [ there are current concerns with the traditional problem use-of-force continuum such as: Each continuum has its own general categories of subject actions. They include phrases such as passive resistance, verbal non-compliance, active resistance, assault, grievous bodily harm, you get the point. The problem is that there is no universal agreement on how to define each of these terms. Active resistance to one officer may appear passive to another, and may even appear assaultive to another. These types of inconsistencies may cause an officer to unnecessarily hesitate as he tries to pigeonhole a subject’s actions into a specific definition on a Use of Force continuum. Use of Force continuum are a cognitive tool, and they’re not very useful in the rapidly evolving dynamics of a critical incident. ] (More)
