Summary of the scenario
The case in this situation requires moving police from the response-based method to a community-oriented system, restoring security and order. The move is essential because the rural region described in the scenario covers approximately 125km by 75km. The people in the area engage in farming as the main occupation, but a local lake acts as a tourist attraction. In the region, the rate of crime is low, but property crime is a predominant challenge as well as constant collisions on roads with tourists being the most affected by the accidents. It is suspected that crashes are as a result of growing driving impaired issues. It is a challenge to not that the local government less concerned with criminal problems affecting the local community and the police are not in support of the proposed community-oriented system a reality that might result in change resistance.

The local community is the other part of the city, and this comprises the youth, business individuals, farmers, and the elderly. The tourists are the last part of the community as they visit the local lake and also are affected continuously by road collisions.

The victims of crime and road collisions also deserve protection from all members of the community, and it is for this reason that members of the city should be involved and be empowered to take part in community development (Manning, 2015). However, it is essential to get to understand the situation from the real point of view to put in place the right measures to address the situation.
Public participation should first be endorsed to gather first-hand information from the parties involved(Jenkins, 2016). Therefore, this will require physical engagements between the plan development team and all partners which include local police officers, residents regardless of economic engagement, and the tourists. During public participation meetings, members of the community to be consulted of the various ways they feel they can help in effecting community-oriented system being proposed. Other strategies o
