Stake holders can benefit from crime mapping by receiving real time security updates of local areas, assisting basic threat assessments to determine where significant risks are most prominent and, will support local intelligence agencies in understanding risk locations. However, permitting crime mapping as an open source research tool can also be a disadvantage. Open source allows every member of the public access including adversaries. I feel the biggest victims of crime mapping will be local businesses, police forces and the general
Weisburd and Eck (2004) states that enforcing the law in a broader and reactive way by primarily using police resources is considered to be the central element of the standard model of policing. There are also strategies for the standard model of policing (Sherman et al., 1997; Weisburd & Eck, 2004). The first strategy would be to increase the number of police officers while the second strategy is to deter crime in public places by having unfocused and random motorized patrols. The third strategy would be the rapid and instant response towards calls for service. The fourth strategy would be to increase the number of crimes being solved by creating follow-up investigations by detectives.
With the use of the computerized systems , computer data analysts have started helping the law enforcement officers and detectives to track crimes and to speed up the process of solving crimes. The detection of linked crimes is helpful to law enforcement for several reasons. Firstly, the collection of information from crime scenes increases the amount of available evidence. Secondly, the joint investigation of multiple crimes enables a more efficient use of law enforcement resources . Law enforcement needs to handle a large amount of reported, and the detection of series of crimes are often carried out manually.
The criminal examination process is an intricate part of the legitimate framework that means to assemble prove legally, fairly and as per the privileges of casualties, suspects and society. The criminal examination process embodies the forces of police to confine suspects, grill and to look and seize property, through the suitable utilization of warrants and other lawful means. The criminal examination process likewise involves the privileges of suspects, for example, to safeguard and remand and the privilege to direct amid cross examination. Technology has made a further developed society and economy. We utilise innovation in each part of life today.
According to the modus operandi (the methods used by a criminal during commission a crime); criminal police officers are frequently able to identify an offender. Visual identification of a stranger by the victim is possible as well. However everything should be done quickly and thoroughly. Sometimes it is necessary to take into consideration that criminals can commit different type of crime than it is documented in the police files. Thus, criminal police officers should keep their minds wide open and definitely focus on: discovering the time and location where a suspect claimed to be (somewhere else than on the crime scene and at the time when the crime occurred), verification and supplementation of initial information with additional information
Through the use of criminal statistics, theories can be formed on the different social groups. For example, a crime statistic such as increasing violent crimes can be used together with existing theories that investigate such behaviors. Using the theories as foundations, the government will be in a better position to know the root of the problem and therefore produce more focused and productive policy measures to curb the issue. Aside from the well-planned and executed policies, the state will be able to implement long-term goals through making future projections. By doing so, use of crime statistics will become more useful since the underlying causes of crime such as illiteracy, unemployment, and poverty are dealt with.
It explores the different types and causes of crime and their consequences. Societal response to crime in criminal justice I would like to begin with emphasizing more on criminal justice itself. Like I stated before, criminal justice describes the societal response to crime. On page 28 of the textbook it states criminal justice refers to more of the “policy aspects of crime” Therefore, the most known component of criminal justice is law enforcement and within law enforcement, police officers, FBI agents, border patrols and U.S martials come into the
The events of 9/11 propelled terrorism into the forefront of American policing. While threats were always present, the materialization of attack sparked a newfound change in strategic thinking about how to integrate counterterrorism efforts into local policing. Larger police agencies may have greater resource capabilities to regularly engage in counterterrorism activities, however, smaller organizations can build relationships and leverage already-held local expertise and position to promote an equally-valuable counterterrorism posture. Due to risk-based probabilities of occurrence, weighed against budget and resource constraints, police executives must assess and balance the need for, and cost of, counterterrorism activities with typical police work. Newman and Clarke (2008) offer a number of strategies that smaller organizations may consider when implementing such counterterrorism planning techniques.
Within this report, the arguments for and against video surveillance, whether it be body cameras or CCTVs, will be heavily analyzed to determine which side has the more compelling argument. Moreover, the idea of lack of privacy in relation to cultural relativism will be analyzed when discussing both arguments. The argument for video surveillance has to do with preventing crime and increasing the safety of civilians. Most of the time, when a crime occurs, the jury relies on testimonial evidence given by a witness. With CCTVs, there is always substantial evidence that is stronger than testimonial evidence which will allow the court to sentence criminals to a higher amount of time in jail.
INTRODUCTION Processing of crime scene include :- • Careful examination • Note taking • Sketching • Photography • Collection of physical evidences Crime scene searching must be done in systematic way proper steps must be taken at appropriate time . crime scene processing should not be done in a messy way. NOTE TAKING Note taking is important in crime scene processing because it helps investigator to write down all the observations and maintain a record of everything observed in the crime scene. Even an insignificant writing on investigators notes can be later useful for investigation. Some very important points to be kept in mind while taking notes are :- • Notes should be made in chronological order.
