Attach your document to the main discussion post, and include any notes that you feel are appropriate. The purpose of this assignment is to help improve the quality of the final product you will submit to your instructor.

Begin by reviewing the Individual Project from Week 1 to ensure that you understand this final project.

The individual project for Week 1:

Your final assignment for this course will be to create a Community Policing Proposal to a fictional community.

Your instructor will be assigning you a fictional community profile this week. You will use this profile to inform the design of your Community Policing Proposal. The final proposal will include the following elements:

* A description of the community and its needs
* A step-by-step implementation plan designed with the specific needs of your community in mind
* A practical strategy that can be used to communicate your community policing model to the community and the law enforcement organization

Part 1

Your instructor will send you a brief description of a community. Upon receiving the community profile, create a name for your community. Provide a written description of the community and a description of the crime issue at hand. You may add unique details to the description of the community or the issue if you think it will benefit your assignment. Submit a written description of the community for which you will be creating a Community Policing Proposal.

Part 2

Describe how federal, state, and local law enforcement work together in criminal investigations. Answer the following questions:

* What is the scanning, analyze, response, and assessment (SARA) model?
