Public Safety Discussion 1

 

Wicked problems are characterized by the following:

  • The solution depends on how the problem is defined and vice versa (i.e., the problem definition depends on the solution).
  • Stakeholders have radically different worldviews and different frames for understanding the problem.

Why is the radically different stakeholder perspective in a significant issue challenging for the public safety administrator – reflect on the current issues in law enforcement and citizen interaction?
