Specify the design of a program to analyze if it provides solutions to the problems presented in the project scenario for the Fictionland Police Department. Include
Among the many possible design approaches, which design will you employ?
For the study, a mix of quantitative data and narrow phenomenological would work best.

Why do you consider this to be the best design for your study?
Quantitative data can be used in both the short and long term to determine if the number of complaints and incidents become lower after a program is implemented. Use of numbers to quantify change will help determine which parts of the training are working in the view of both the public and the officers. The phenomenological part is more ongoing and long term. It helps identify ...
