As we all know, not everyone gets along with everyone so there is no doubt that at some stage a conflict will arise. The frequency, intensity, and resolution of these conflicts will depend on how big the team is, how well the people know each other, and how committed they are to achieving the team’s goals.

College for Law and Justice Administration v1 20 Specialist Operations Specialist Operations Command has staff (both police and administrative) deployed throughout New South Wales who provide the specialist expertise necessary to complement a comprehensive and professional local police service. The Commands that make up Specialist Operations are: Counter Terrorism & Special Tactics Forensic Services Group Operational Communications & Information Command Professional Standards Command Special Services Group State Crime Command Business & Technology Services Police Prosecutions
College for Law and Justice Administration v1 21 Morale What is morale? Indicators of morale Factors affecting morale Material Factors Group factors Job factors Tasmania's Acting Police Commissioner says an inquiry into code of conduct complaints made against him has not damaged morale within the police force.
College for Law and Justice Administration v1 22 Morale Factors affecting morale Discuss these statements as a group – do you think they are true? Police recruits report very high levels of commitment these levels decrease rapidly as soon as they are exposed to “real policing”, and continue to decrease with experience in the police organisation. Commitment reported by experienced police officers in Australia (with up to 20 years’ experience) are low when compared with police officers in New Zealand Commitment levels of non-sworn police staff with university degrees are low, and remain low independent of their length of service. The commitment levels of non-sworn police staff who do not have degrees follow a similar trend to that of the police officers. For the recruits, the decrease in commitment resulted from exposure to police work (particularly where their interaction with the community was not as positive as they had expected) and the organisational commitment “norm” they found in their more experienced co-workers.
College for Law and Justice Administration v1 23 Morale Factors affecting morale Discuss: Is this the same for NSW Police? All police employees were more committed to the organisation if they felt 1. they had an investment in the organisation that would be lost if they left (e.g. status, superannuation, friendships with co-workers) 2. they were valued and supported by the organisation. 3. The most common examples of lack of support were lack of advocacy from senior management against unsubstantiated allegations in the media, lack of communication (especially about career development and promotion) and lack of recognition of performance and experience.

College for Law and Justice Administration v1 24 TOPIC THREE OVERVIEW Topic Three: Individual responsibilities Despite the formation of a team which shares a common goal, the individuals in the team must be assigned tasks and duties in which they will be held accountable. These individual contributions all add up to the final product and they all have their own purpose. It is therefore vital for the success of the overall team that individuals fulfil their job requirements.
College for Law and Justice Administration v1 25 Topic three Assigning roles Meaningful roles Assisting each other Providing feedback Taking responsibility for your work
College for Law and Justice Administration v1 26 NSW Police job requirements Required to work “rotating shifts” or “shift work Work overtime hours prior to, or, following their shifts Physically and mentally demanding, all weather conditions, 24 hours a day Can involve officers placing themselves in situations of personal risk.

College for Law and Justice Administration v1 27 NSW Police job requirements It is recommended for Police Officers to maintain healthy and well balanced lifestyles. Experience fluctuating levels of excitement Police work can be extremely exciting and challenging one minute and somewhat routine the next.

College for Law and Justice Administration v1 28 Assigning roles How does the rank structure work?

Conflict – assisting each other Provide two examples when have you been in a conflict situation where you had to use communication skills? How did you go about resolving this conflict? List the communication skills you used (open hands, eye contact etc) – discuss how police communicate in these situations below?
College for Law and Justice Administration v1 31 TOPIC FOUR OVERVIEW Topic Four: Working with management In most situations where a formal team is established, there will be some authority figure who oversees the entire operation. A good manager will only tell a team what needs to be done, but it will be up to the team to decide how it will be done. Although most of the decision making and problem solving is left to the team, the manager is still required for any issues which cannot be resolved.
