This activity is an online simulation designed to help police officers learn about the “Problem Oriented Policing” approach. Students complete this simulation activity on their own time, outside of class, and they write a short analysis of their performance.
This activity created was by Benjamin Schneer, a graduate teaching fellow for GOV30, to help students understand methods in public opinion polling. Schneer provided a dilemma for students to resolve using information about public opinion polling found in their textbook or online resources. Students enthusiastically participated in this active learning exercise to incorporate classroom knowledge in a practical setting.
