    I need help drafting preliminary recommendations to the mayor based on the criminal justice issue "excessive use of force" These recommendations will inform the mayor and other senior leadership about a course of action to solve the issue. Assess the strategy's potential for success, but also identify possible hurdles and obstacles
    to the implementation of the recommendations you proposed. Address the following critical elements:
    Recommendations
    A. Propose a solution to address the issue in criminal justice, consider the complexity of the solution, the possible adverse effects, and the feasibility of the solution in terms of time and resources.
    B. Apply criminological theory to justify how the proposed solution will address the underlying causes of the issue.
    C. Outline the immediate actions that will need to be taken to implement the solution, justifying the necessity and feasibility of these actions with evidence.
    D. Outline the long-term actions that will need to be taken to implement the solution, justifying the necessity and feasibility of these actions with evidence.
    E. Determine the types of data necessary to assess whether the solution is successful in addressing the issue, justifying your determinations. How will you measure the success of your solution?

Officers will also be trained in use of force, handling mass demonstrations, stops, searches, and arrests (a). Finally, officers will be required to go through simulations where officers can neutralize threatening situations with minimal force. The only adverse effect is the cost of providing training. It will take at least six months for training to be provided to all officers and during this period excessive use of force may take place.

    Step 2
    Criminology theory of positivism says there can be biological, ...
