Also in this assignment are goals that have been set by the Chief of Police Carla J. McCoy in order to reduce the number of D.U.I. incidents. An Operational Plan has been created in order to increase the number of D.U.I. arrests by 20% over the course of the next 60 days. A detailed outline will be evident in this article as well. Two or Three activities will be used in order to meet this goal which will also include detailed items such as the times of operations, the number of officers that will be used, and possibly an explanation on how assets will be re-allocated to meet the objective if applicable. The theme for this project is “Drinking and Driving is Compatible to an Unprepared Mind as well as an Impaired Mind”<br />Introduction<br />We all know how Alcohol can impair a person’s vision, thinking, and physical movements. Drinking and Driving is Compatible to an Unprepared Mind as well as an Impaired Mind because we can never be prepared for what’s going to happen any time a drunk driver get’s behind the wheel but in more cases than none it ends up being fatal and people’s lives are lost and at stake. Ekwuaju Police Department has incorporated strategic planning into long-term objectives, as well as operational planning in order to individualize operations or activities that will result in the accomplishment of strategic goals. Our Strategic goal here at Ekwuaju Police Department is to reduce incidents of citizens who are driving under the influence of alcohol so it’s obvious that more patrols are needed as well as more roadblocks and increased prosecution to help reduce this problem among the city of Alex, TX. A basic Outline of the Operational Plan that the Ekwuaju Police Department has provided is evident that will show an increase in the amount of D.U.I. arrests by 20% within the time frame of 60 days. A detailed outline of the plan shows the main activities used in order to meet the goals necessary. There are a number of officers that will be used and evident times of operation as well. Assets will also be used in re-allocating to meet our Departments Objective.

(AIU Online, 2009)<br />Strategies – The planned actions that support the achievement of our objectives are the Times of Operations which are 9 am – 6 pm Monday through Friday, The Number of Officers that will be used will be approximately 25, and an explanation of how assets will be re-allocated in order to meet our objectives which will include all seized monies which will be re-allocated over to the Narcotics Budget, all vehicles or homes that are seized under the Narcotics Asset Forfeiture laws shall be converted or sold and added to departmental fleet, and all other assets that are seized will be transferred over to the departmental inventory.

The dates we plan on hiring new officers include from 4/19/09 – 4/26/09 in various areas throughout town and on the edges of town. Monitoring progress that is up to date helps in determining whether or not the strategies are on schedule which will be done in the Police Department according to the amount of reports that officers have.

It’s always important to create an outline of an operational plan so that later on a project plan can take place among team members or personnel. Two or Three activities we have provided are the number of officers that will be used, and how our assets will be re-allocated as well as the times of operation. It’s never safe to drive drunk and there are so many lives that have been lost due to drunk driving that it’s a good thing its illegal and the laws need to be made stricter. By providing roadblocks, more officers, and increased prosecution this will hopefully get the job done because anyone who drinks and drives isn’t in their right mind.
