Week 6_DQ 1
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, review Chapters 4, 6, 7 and 10 in Correctional Leadership Competencies for the 21st Century: Executives and Senior-Level Leaders (Campbell & Dobel & Katsampes & Mactavish & Yates, 2014). Conduct research to locate the vision and mission statements for a law enforcement or correctional organization upon which to base your initial post.
Vision and mission statements are critical tools that inform the organization and the community about what is important to that organization and how that organization views their role and responsibility in carrying out their duties. They identify the guiding principles by which the organization will function.
Using the vision and mission statements you have selected, evaluate the contents in the context of organizational commitment to ethical behavior. In your initial post, identify the central message(s), and explain the leadership values that are communicated. Analyze the statements and explain the legal policies and Constitutional mandates you see reflected in them. Putting yourself in the role of a citizen in the community being served, describe your impression of this organization based on their vision and mission statements. Discuss the expectations you would have of the performance of members of this organization if they adhered to this vision and mission. Describe any deficiencies or omissions you have identified and explain why you believe they should be corrected.
From your own perspective and drawing on your studies within this course, discuss whether or not you believe the vision and mission statements are realistic and attainable and provide a rationale for your position. Suggest changes that would make these documents more meaningful as tools for strategic planning and ethical behavior.
