It could be argued that alternatives, such as engaging with the youths, building a rapport and educating them, as well as treating them with respect and fairness, rather than escalating the situation and disparaging the character of the youths, could allow officers to not only comply with policy and legislation, but also more effectively police their community by building positive relationships, channels of communication, and reduction of future crime (Chan, Bargen, Luke and Clancey 1997). However, these alternatives require the appropriate use of discretion which the officers failed to

This paper is a discussion concerning teleology and deontology in police work. This paper will blend together sources to support the argument that the ethical principles of deontology and teleology can offer important understandings into help creating further ethical police behavior. The paper shows that, despite the significant differences in the application of each ethical view, the two different ethical viewpoints address principles and ideas that officers can utilize as they respond to the ethical challenges and dilemmas that are found while dealing with the public.

While many criminal justice policies are loosely based on criminological theories if at all. The lack of consideration for criminological theories could come from the reluctance of scholars to test out the implications of theories on policy. In addition policymakers may simply be unfamiliar with crime theories and therefore have no theoretical knowledge to inform polices. Programs that lack theoretical support are more likely to fail, proving that many criminal justice policies are unlikely to be effective due to poor conceptualization. Even polices that are grounded in theory often are not well supported or are difficult to implement.
