Learning Goal: I’m working on a finance question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
A precinct commander instructs members of his or her command regarding the fiscal management strategies, goals, and objectives of the unit.
Imagine you are a precinct commander, and your police chief is requesting your help in submitting a budget request for 5 additional patrol officers in response to rising crime rates. Budget analysts will challenge the chief’s budget request, so your task is to develop at least 3 input, 3 output, and 3 outcome measures to justify the request.
Write a 525- to 700-word proposal of performance measures related to funding the 5 officers that will support the budget request. Your measures must be a mix of input, output, and outcome measures and will help measure the success of adding the officers. Specific inputs should lead to specific outputs, and these outputs result in desired outcomes.
For your proposal, be sure to:
- Explain what input, output, and outcome measures are. Include a minimum of 3 of each measure.
- Describe each measure in detail.
- Identify how each measure relates to and supports the budget request for the additional 5 officers.
