The situational crime prevention theory originated in the Home Office Research Unit of the British Government in the 1970’s (Clarke, 2018). The results of their research were published in Crime as Opportunity (Mayhew, Clarke, Sturman, & Hough, 1976). The research was dismissed by many criminologists at the time as many believed that their conclusion that crime could be reduced through the removal of opportunities was too basic (Clarke, 1980). Ronald Clarke was among those who worked in the Home Office Research Unit and contributed to the early research of situational crime prevention. Clarke has written several articles on situational crime prevention and is now considered the major contributor of the theory as it exists

A few days ago, Trump used the chance of his inaugural address to the Congress to reiterate some important promises. He mentioned that we wanted to defeat the problem of drugs in the country and echoed the previous verbal promises of presidents, such as Ronal Reagan and Richard Nixon. His anger remained directed at hard drugs, such as heroin and never once did he mention marijuana, to the delight of many Americans. Trump promised during his speech that he will do everything in his power to slow down the drug issue and stop it altogether as part of his “Make America
Furthermore, Burrough was interested in taking on the challenge considering no one in literary history had attempted this (Burrough). In terms of the filmmakers, director, Michael Mann, read a section of Burrough’s book and began developing a script with producer, Kevin Misher, soon thereafter (“Michael”). The overall goal of the production was to introduce to the world the most accurate depiction of the War on Crime, how it ultimately led to the development of the FBI, and its overall influence on American history. In the end, despite some minor inaccuracies, this film holds up as a solid piece of historical analysis. This is because it portrays a relatively reliable timeline of the War on Crime/Dillinger’s life and how that, in turn, strengthened the FBI as a federal institution.
James Wilson and George Kelling introduced the broken windows theory in 1982. The broken windows theory states that any minor crimes, if ignored will increase into higher and more serious crimes. This theory implies that if you control an area to be well be ordered and maintained, this could stop further acts and decrease the crime rates. Broken windows theory sparked an evolutionary change in policing and the community.
He again says that although the solution isn’t perfect, it is another step towards resolving the issue, leaving the idea of improvements to gun control laws fresh in the audience's mind. Utilizing the rhetorical device of repetition, allows Obama to keep this idea in the audience's mind, with the goal of persuading the audience to come to terms with his idea of tightening gun control. In conclusion, by utilizing the rhetorical devices of the appeal of ethos and repetition, President Obama was able to deliver a strong speech on gun control, and achieve his goal of persuading individuals to join him on the road to strengthening laws on gun
Now after listing some of the official organization that are using technology to help end this form of slavery, I would like to list some of the ways we, in this modern age, can help end this grievous crime. It might be easy to hear the facts about human trafficking, but fall into the false idea that it is simply up to our government and other such groups to deal with this important issue, and this is simply not true, in our technology advanced day and age it is now easier than ever to help do our part to help end this horror. Anyone can and should join in the fight against human trafficking, we can do this by, learning the indicators of human trafficking so you can help identify a potential trafficking victim. Human trafficking awareness training is available for individuals, businesses, first responders, law enforcement, educators, and federal employees, and many others. You can work with a local religious community or congregation to help stop trafficking by supporting a victim service provider or spreading awareness of human trafficking or encourage your local schools to partner with students and include modern slavery in their curricula.
Dr. George Buzzy said it best when he stated, “our culture is different than it used to be” (Buzzy, 2011) and to have the ability to deal with the multicultural differences and diversities that now exist in each and every community, the criminal justice system needs to be able to adapt and grow with the changes. Since communication is one of the most important factors both in the courts and police departments it would be only natural that they take on the responsibility of hiring those that are bilingual in order to be able to communicate with those that come into contact or enter the justice system. Learning about the different cultures and their values and beliefs because they “have a significant impact on the justice system” (Schmalleger, 2015, p. 26). 1 Corinthians 14: 10 “There are doubtless many different languages in the world, and none is without meaning” (Holy Bible ESV), this can also apply to the different cultures that make up this great nation. Taking the time and effort to learn more about these differences can prevent a lot of bias and stereotyping that most people accuse the police departments and courts of being guilty of.
In the article, “Beware the Biomarkers for Criminal Behavior,” Kira Peikoff analyzes the expanding use of brain imaging and biomarkers to predict criminal behavior. She describes the expansion of these technological advancements as a possible violation to an individual’s basic civil rights of innocent until proven guilty. Piekoff expresses that with these growing advancements in this technology a fine line between science and morality should be explored with caution. Our society today may consist of individuals with mental defects, but where is the line drawn in depicting a future crime without infringing on an individual 's basic civil rights. Peikoff provides three distinguishable premises in her article.
One of the major overhauls needed in the Department of Homeland Security is immigration enforcement. A 2011 report by Matt Mayer entitled, Homeland Security 4.0: Overcoming Centralization, Complacency, and Politics compiled research by Heritage Foundation analysts and came up with key points that need to be addressed in order to make the Department of Homeland Security run more effectively. The main point of recommendation is to “adopt a fair, honest, and realistic approach to immigration enforcement that recognizes state and local authorities as responsible partners and abjures an “amnesty first” strategy, which would simply encourage more illegal border crossings and unlawful presence. Sensible and functional border security, immigration, and workplace laws are vital to focusing scarce resources on the pressing security threat posed by transnational criminal cartels based in Mexico” (Matt Mayer,
These policies are a huge part of what American and it 's government is today. Without some of these policies we could be in the equal amount of danger we were 14 years ago with 9-11. These polices are part of how life is now. They make our country a safer
The U.S. justice system is considered the fairest of all but if confessions are inadmissible and true criminals are released then our society will progress under great peril from continued violent acts. Law enforcement officers are mandated by Miranda to advise subjects in a custodial interrogation of their rights under the Fifth Amendment and their right to a counsel under the Sixth Amendment. The policies of police departments everywhere had to be changed due to Miranda; as this decision provided a fundamental shift in the tactics being used by investigators to interrogate suspects. No longer could officers pray on the ignorance of the law or intimidation of authority in order to compel confessions. “The courts have made it very clear that the use of physical force or physical abuse or even the threat of this type of conduct on the part of police will render a confession involuntary”
