Creating a Policy on Mandatory Body-Worn Camera
Develop a policy to implement the mandatory use of body-worn cameras for an agency.

Take into account the agency’s unionized officers and the various concepts of organizational theory, behavior, and culture discussed in the assigned reading. Offer solutions to demonstrate your leadership abilities in gaining employee buy-in for such a major policy change. Discuss the organizational theories that apply to law enforcement and criminal justice agencies. Address arguments that can be raised against the policy to illustrate typical organizational behavior.
