Additionally, Professor Ervin Staub, of Amy Novotney’s article, “Preventing Police Misconduct”, believes that commonplace conformity and active bystander ship leads to more misconduct among police officers. Solomon E. Asch would agree with this claim based off of his research in social psychology. His research proves that pressure from a majority group can lead a person to conform. As well as people regulating their behavior in terms of the norms and values of the group. When police officers are faced with the issue of seeing the majority of those around them behaving in an improper manner, they too will feel the need to act accordingly.
In this paper, I would like to discuss the difference between Policing and Law enforcement as well as to explain what a law enforcement officer does? And what is the purpose of policing? Or how policing is fighting crime through the community service and problem-solving. While the Law enforcement was made to enforce laws, I will be discussing this more in the paper. Another thing I will be discussing in this paper is the cons and pros of The Law enforcement and Policing.
Differential Association Edwin Sutherland Theory proports that through interaction with others individuals learn values, attitudes, techniques, motives for criminal behaviour. Two different cultures exist, with one being criminal and the other conventional. Normal learning occurs through verbal and non verbal communication that helps to establish whether attitudes of individuals is favorable to law violation through normal learning processes by individuals who are disposed towards breaking the law. They develop motivation for engaging in criminal activity and attitudes that drives them to deviate. Different cycles of criminality can also influence their lives where criminal behavior occurs with intimate interactions through socialization.
The article expresses the importance on protecting and serving all civilians when it comes to communicating. It is noted that some civilians endure difficulties when addressing concerns to police officers. Enforcing discriminatory practices when a civilian endures a language barrier with the officer is what has resulted to prevent minority groups from receiving the services they need by police officers. In this study, research was conducted on a series of interviews from Canadian police officers. The issues at hand focus on police adaptation to a multicultural setting:
The intention is to gain more trust and cooperation between the police officers and the public. Not only that, but also gives a chance for the community to provide feedback and ultimately be heard by the police. This type of policing has been implemented in different ways, including having police officers get out of their vehicles and walk around different neighborhoods. The thought was to have the public see that these police officers are around to help and ultimately care (Siegel, 2017). The Community Era has many strengths and weaknesses.
The third feature involved creating a system that differentiated between emergency and non-emergency calls for assistance, and, thus, allowed the department to prioritize its responses. The fourth feature involved focusing on the root causes of neighborhood problems, such as building decay. The fifth feature involved making the police officers responsible for effectively using community organizations and other city agencies to resolve crime. Finally, the sixth feature involved efficiently collecting crime data, analyzing the data at the district level, and then sharing the information among the street officers. Indeed, the CAPS program was designed to increase police officer presence, to improve police officer response to crime, and to reduce crime by addressing the root causes of crime.
The focus can be on early intervention programs that seek to educate people in connection with ethics and honesty, or in high-risk environments in which crimes are most likely to occur, such as in IT or accounts departments within corporations. c. Tertiary crime prevention Tertiary crime prevention focuses on the operation of the criminal justice system and deals with offending after it has happened. The primary focus is on intervening in the lives of known offenders in an attempt to prevent them from re -offending either through periods of incarceration, community-based sanctions, or monitoring during periods of probation. Criminal justice system responses also seek to deter other potential offenders in the community by making an example of the convicted offender and educating the community concerning the penalties associated with crime.

Also, the context of introversion will be explored because personality plays a role in people’s feelings of connectedness with others. Susan Cain addresses the area of introversion and the studies and theories behind it in her book entitled Quiet (Cain 2013). Moreover, I explore group dynamics and the Caribbean distinctive to help identify some of the hurdles and opportunities faced when developing a strategy for welcoming newcomers into NPWC. The objective of this section is to investigate how to create an environment in which newcomers can gain a sense of belonging and connectedness to form a strong sense of community. Defining Community The term community can refer to the spatial, geographical, or physical spacing between cities, neighborhoods, or people.
Question #1 The paradigm of policy analysis is best described as a model that identifies patterns, defines an apparent problem (criminal behavior), and develops research designs and policies that address concerns produced by criminal behavior (Walker, Ch. 2). Given this, theory and research are essential to policy examination with emphasis on the theoretical advancement between the fields of criminal justice and criminology in how they report policy effectiveness (Cooper & Worrall, 2012). From a practical perspective continuing a policy that is wasteful of police time and resources if they fail to prevent or reduce criminal behavior. Continuing ineffective policy is atheoretical (Ibid.
These are the ways we could deal with crime: increasing police numbers and visibility of police in the communities or place a satellite police station that will be frequently supported or resourced by a main regional police station. The government need to help designing special educational, rehabilitating slums, recreational and employment services for communities considered as being at crime risk. Therefore another ways of dealing with crime there could be target hardening to make the objects of crime less vulnerable (such as car steering column locks, deadlocks on residence doors and installation of CCTV on the busy streets), and mostly prevent crime through community police forums. To begin implementing the strategies or ways to deal with crime this are the steps to follow: 1. Search for local crime problems.
