When you bring in the Feds you hear the "they not sensitive to our culture" whiners and they get zero help from local authorities. This must Stop Hey VIPD! get out of your cars and do something. You drive by the police station at night and it's full of police cars. Why, its too dangerous for them to be out.
This is from the US DoJ Guidelines for putting together an Anti-Gang task force. I think I see a couple of the problems....
The success of the task force depends
on progressive leadership exhibited by the participating
agencies, task force management, and task force
personnel. The presence of this leadership is often
transparent in successful task force operations; the
absence of this leadership is obvious in task forces that
experience failures. Successful task force operations
have an underlying thread of “enlightened leaders”
committed to overcoming obstacles and resolving
differences. Committed task force leadership has an
insatiable “can-do” attitude and will accept nothing less
than the very best effort.
The success of the task force is
dependent upon the commitment of the policymakers,
participating agencies, task force leadership, and the
team members. Good intentions and “moral support”
do little to sustain the task force in accomplishing its
mission. Commitment means that everyone honors
their agreements, roles, and responsibilities regarding
building, staffing, and supporting the task force.
Clear Mission: The successful task force has a
Guideline 7: Personnel
? Select personnel who are mature, responsible,
positive, and committed to achieving the task force
? Identify personnel to fill all task force positions:
leadership (commander/director), supervision
and support staff.
? Draft written personnel roles and responsibilities for
every position within the task force (make a part of
the task force policies and procedures manual)
---- We're screwed....
