Also, it could possibly reduce the opportunity for groups of people to cause any disturbance in the community. When a community is in a gated area, one feels like they are in a safer community and is fear of crime. Deutsch (2017), defines crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) as a crime reduction strategy that acknowledges the potential to reduce opportunities for criminal behavior through a secure layout and design of the built environment to prevent damage from the force of the elements and natural disasters (2017). The strengths of alley-gating in communities are supposed to bring communities together and not afraid to leave and return back home. CPTED seeks to build a physical atmosphere advantageous to the overall safety of the community by using defensible space and improving surveillance.
The LAPD (2015b) also has a separate values statement that does address the themes of social equity. The core values of the LAPD mentions treating all with fairness and respect and that all officers should treat every with respect and dignity. One theme that was mentioned by LAPD (2005a, 2015b) was empowering employees to do the duties of their job. Even though the mission statement or the core values did not specifically mention protecting the rights of individuals, there is a spirit throughout both statements that shows the department commitment to the community and its individual members. The DPD (2013) mission statement shows
The social work theories that will be used in relations to the Yishun community are strengths perspectives, systems theory and social capital theory. Strengths Perspective Instead of focusing on the issue, the strengths perspectives centres on the community’s abilities, talents and resources. A focus on strengths does not represent that the community’s concerns and problems are ignored but they are not the focus of the intervention (Stuart, 2012).
Such efforts have rendered restorative justice capable of fostering better intercommunal relations amongst different individuals through the efforts targeted at stopping the cycle of violence. Chicago’s justice system and the community as a whole, thus have the ability to drastically reduce violence in the state through rehabilitation of juvenile offenders. Correspondingly, restorative justice in Chicago can thus be viewed as a system that incorporates both elements of criminal justice and rehabilitative measures deemed to be appropriate and quantifiably useful both for the victim and the violator. This follows the precedence of the traditional criminal to restorative justice in the judicial system available in Chicago. However, restorative justice uniquely contains several elements that differentiate it from the traditional system, specifically, the practice of this system focuses the offender, the offense, and the victim (Wenzel, Michael, et al. 378).
This is a good way for people to live amongst each other harmoniously
For families that live in poor quality neighborhoods, the atmosphere around them affects their daily routine. Without the necessary infrastructure support, life around them can negatively impact not only their daily performance, but also their ability to feel safe in their own communities. These communities are not exclusive to neighborhoods; rather they include a broader scope of things including schools,
It is not a limited effort to try, it is new way of efforting to deliver a police service. It is not a public relation, also improve the community relation by the form of decentralized and personalized service to the community, rather than its basic goal. Community policing is not a anti-technology, it takes the benefit from technology using call management system, computer terminal cellular phone, fax machine and other advance technology. Community policing officers answer calls and make arrest like any other line offices. CP shifts the role of the police from the expert with all the answers to a partner in an effort to create the community a better and safer place in which to live and work .it
Societies in America today do not imply the Golden rule to their everyday lives. This rule explains the karma effect that whatever you do comes back around to either break or make you. This applies to every aspect of life. The main aspects are showing compassion, building relationships due to loyalty, and overall respecting others. These crucial characteristics allow for a better way of life and to overall become better human beings socially while being religiously by obeying one out of the ten commandments.
Additionally, the impact of reforming incarceration policies should not be overstated, for the impact might not be on the incarceration rate of drug offenders but in the drug-related arrests. Also, reforming drug and sentencing policies will promote an engaging cohesion within the community that will result a healthy mitigating society, for Robert D Crutchfield and Gregory A. Weeks author of "The Effects Of Mass Incarceration On Communities Of Color. " quotes “When residential areas, and even commercial districts, are cohesive and individuals are engaged with each other, people can participate in the kinds of social life that make crime less likely”. In continuation, institutions increases poverty within those closely connected to convicted offender, which increases poverty, for according to Michael Mitchell and Michael Leachman authors of “Changing priorities: state criminal justice reforms and investments in education.”
Citizens feel safer knowing that changes are being made to their homes. This begs the question if gentrification is really a “dirty word.” By approaching gentrification in this different light, residents of San Francisco are trying to convince the reader that gentrification in San Francisco is necessary to make the environment a safer space for living in and that while there are landlords that are raising rent and driving people out, these are only the big-name developers. A real-estate agent by the name of Joske Thompson confirms what various residents of the mission district have said regarding gentrification in their area. When speaking for the neighborhood, Thompson describes how “long-termers in neighborhoods are appreciating the changes;” that they are able to “walk the neighborhood and feel safer.”
It is not necessary to switch to metric since the US already knows it while also knowing the US system. The system of measurement is like a culture which other nations have problems with but the US does not since it has its own system. Switching to the metric system could be beneficial but not such a huge necessary change that is necessary. With the US Customary system, the US could stand out from the rest of the world. It is not a follower but a leader of its
For example, one cannot be thrown in a cell for sharing negative ideas about the government and/or its leader(s). In many cases, putting such notions out into the world can be a very positive action. Once injustice from within a governing system is revealed, it is much easier to gather like-minded people in
Wealth of an individual, and their health are two contracting factors in America. Usually if an individual has more wealth they are considered to be healthier. However for the Mexican Americans, this contradicting theory seems to disappear. In the film Becoming American, researchers discovered that immigrant Latinos have the best health, even though they are considered one of the poorest, socially marginalized population. Latino’s are also considered to have the best health among one of the wealthiest communities, which enables them to the Latino paradox.
“Nearly 15 years after the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history, the government admits that more than half a million foreigners with expired visas—like the 9/11 jihadists—remain in the country and thousands are from terrorist nations like Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and Syria”(Retrieved from www.judicialwatch.org) (Judicial Watch, 2016). Government has to enforce immigration law and construct a useful plan to determine overstayed visa before they become a threat such as Arizona and Texas, the police can stop people and ask them their identity to determine if they are here legally. What happens in September 11th was a good example of unacceptable behavior due to unknown terrorists attack the twin center which cost the government billion of dollars to clean up the mess and rebuild a new building as well, beside the compensation for people who were affected emotionally and by the chemical substance. Therefore, the government spends a fortune to detect and punished who’s responsible for this tragedy.
