Melvin Russell: I love being a police officer, but we need reform. Before I start to give my opinion Melvin Russell’s speech, I want to provide a foundation of why I choose Melvin Russell’s speech. My major life career goals is to become a police officer, needless to say that I stand behind in the support of police officers throughout the nations. This article is very important to me because it shows a different point of view of a controversial issue regarding police brutality. Now that I explain why I chose this speech, I want expresses my thoughts on how he went about the speech itself.
460) has described community policing as a “style of policing in which the police are close to the public, know their concerns from regular everyday contacts, and act on them in accord with the community’s wishes”. He has argued that, although the concept of community policing displays a chameleon-like character with several forms, it can also be understood broadly as an entity and ideal type. 6) Community Policing as a Decentralized Approach to Problem-Solving through Partnership : According to Merrit and Dingwall (2010 p. 389) three defining characteristics of community policing can be identified: a) police-community partnerships, b) a problem-solving approach, and c) organizational decentralization and local accountability. In their article, they proceed from this categorization particularly to examine and contextualize the operation of community policing in rural areas, arguing that some notions of
The first principle explains the basic mission and role of the police “to prevent crime and disorder.” This principle is still valid today as law enforcement officers are still actively engaged in preventing crime and maintaining order in the community. This concepts fits into the model of community-oriented and
Regardless of the policing era, this principle still applies and is necessary for police department legitimacy. Peel’s second principle states the ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon public approval of police actions (Dempsey & Forst, 2016). When the public and police form partnerships they design and implement police action plans that are tailored to the communities needs. Peel’s third principle is police must secure the willing cooperation of the public in voluntary observance of law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the public (Dempsey & Forst, 2016). This principle is evident today by statutory laws that are passed to secure and protect the public from harm.
The NSW Police Force (NSWPF) are expected to comply with the ideals and expectations outlined in legislation and policy documents. These documents provide ethical, moral and legal principles to shape the decision-making process of police in the execution of their duty. This essay will discuss the failures of police to comply with these principles in dealing with potential juvenile offenders in the scenario. It will do this by examining their actions with reference to NSW legislation and relevant police force policy documents, discretionary powers and their application in the scenario, and communication techniques which could have had a more positive impact while complying with the directives of the NSWPF. Firstly, in the scenario the police
Conflict and consensus model of policing are seen to be the opposite of each other from the definition and examples seen above. Firstly, Consensus model of policing is collaborative in nature and members of society work together to achieve justice while conflict model of policing is authoritative in nature and the police used their ways to go about reducing crime and social disorder (Evans, 2016). Secondly, organisational culture is more prevalent in conflict model of policing where ---------, widening the gap between the community and the public. Based on the mode of operation in conflict model of policing, it is inevitable that the relationship of trust is absent. On the other hand, consensus model of policing focuses on the community and (p.153 of Evan book), talk about the trust between police and community For conflict model of policing, it has been stated above where Singapore follows the authoritative style of policing, therefore, linking to the contemporary context of Singapore, two examples used will be the incorporation of military style policing and Little India riot.
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.
It makes me think of community policing. For example, police officers have an extensive list of responsibilities. However, through the use of community advocates and assistance they are able to expand their control and responsibilities to individuals not employed by the police force. This will then control things such as community burglaries. In chapter 2 Locke speaks to the state of nature.
An Evaluation of the Restorative Justice Model In Crime Victims: An Introduction to Victimology, Karmen (2015) outlines the restorative justice model of confronting perpetrators of criminal acts. Restorative justice is an alternative to the more traditional legal system of retributive justice; this model strives to increase communication between victim and offender and moves the focus away from offender punishment or other state-centered actions (Karmen, 2015). The restorative justice model has several benefits, including a greater level of focus on crime victims and an emphasis on making peace after a criminal event, such that an offender may reintegrate into society at large (Karmen, 2015). Restorative justice also allows for crime victims
Tyler and Huo (2002) advocate that for powerful institutions such as the police, public trust is related to how the police use their authority to serve the best interest of those they are charged to serve and protect. Motive-based trust theory supports the concept that public trust of the police can be a prognosticator of public satisfaction with police. Burgmann (2013) strom et al. 's (1978) study of 1,159 police services in the U.S. corroborates Loveday 's interpretations. Their findings discredited the concept that minor police services make less proficient use of their employees than enormous services.
The reform agenda has six key points. Number one was to define policing as a profession, meaning that the police will publicly serve and protect their communities. Number two was to cut or eliminate the potential influence with politics that it had on policing. Number three is a big one in my opinion, but inserting or hiring the properly qualified chief executives to lead each police departments going forward.
I agree that officers have a stressful and demanding job. I think that the police needs to know how the community and the board sees them. Sometimes the truth hurts and in this case it may but they need to know. I think your idea on having officers at community events is a great idea. Showing that the officers care makes the community respect their authority more.
Policing has seen much progress. Some reforms do work, and some types of abuse have been reduced. Today, among both police officials and rank and file officers, it is widely recognized that police brutality hinders good law enforcement.Whenever a new case of police brutality comes to light, people in the community must respond politically to ensure justice for the victim. These actions must be timely to be truly effective. We need an organization in place that can mobilize people quickly, organize demonstrations and other actions, defend the victim, challenge the "police version" of incidents in the media, and that can build an ongoing climate of resistance to police brutality in all its forms (Glasser,
The bond that the partnership fostered will be a force multiplier that will mitigate the gang violence crime in this community. When the Riverside police department allows the citizens of the Riverside community involvement it will be able a major resource. The resource of Riverside will assist in the crime-prevention of gang activities, instead of the normal reaction response from the Riverside Police Department. The major pro from Riverside Community problem-oriented policing will assist in the solution of gang violence. The actual partnership is when Riverside members believe that Riverside police department is interested in the same Problem-Oriented solution (“Understanding Community Policing,”1994).
