Police Personality Joe (Ty) Trail Final Paper CRJ 451 Professor Barthe 12/10/2014 Altogether, there are a vast number of jobs whether it is a lawyer, teacher and doctor that many people inspire to be. For every job, each person develops distinctive qualities in order to adapt and respond in their environment. For a police officer, however, they are mainly focused on authority, danger and efficiency. To be a police officer is a challenging and dangerous job. A police officer protects and serves the public.
Wildlife Officer, Wildlife Sergeant, Wildlife Lieutenant, Wildlife Captain, and Wildlife Major. They have to go to training up to a year. First training programs include basic law enforcement training. Fish and Game Wardens are also law enforcement officers, according to BLS.gov. Training usually takes place at a police academy.
For modern police officers this an important principle, this is not always followed and not following this principle causes many unnecessary tragedies and conflicts. This principle should be used by the general public as well, in case of an incident, to only use self-defense if absolutely necessary. The seventh principle of peel is a really important for everyone to remember. This principal helps people understand that there is not much difference between the public and officers. The principal explains that the police are the public and the public are the police, the only difference is that police are payed and make it their full-time duty for modern police officers and public this is important for people to remember because of big divide between the
The police agencies refer to various law enforcement agencies that aim at providing police related services to the general public. The principle roles of police agencies are to go after those people who have committed or engaged in specific crimes. Nevertheless, police agencies are entitled to other roles as well, for instance, they are responsible for imposing the law from enforcing speed limit laws to civil and criminal laws. In this case, a police agency is entitled to educate the general public about the laws and also communicating to the public when there is a criminal activity in a given area so that it creates awareness. Police agencies play the role of protecting peace among individuals by imposing the laws and setting measures against
They are taught early on that every encounter, and every individual is likely to become threat for them. They always have to be very alert while on the job because, as cops are often known to say, “complacency kills.” While in the academy, rookie officers aren’t just told about the risks that they face on a daily basis. They are also shown gut wrenching graphic, sad dash-cam footage of officers being assaulted, their weapons being taken away from them, or worse, them being fatally shot or wounded after lack of attention or complacency, as most law enforcement officers like to put it. These rookie cops are taught that the number one perpetrator isn’t the criminal that can be seen on the video, but that it is the officer’s lack of better judgement. While watching these videos, rookie officers are usually thinking to themselves that they can’t let that happen to them while out on the job.
Police records are public records that provide information about a person’s criminal behavior. Every citizen has the right to access public police records and read information about someone’s criminal history, including details from the police report, jail bookings and mugshot information for criminals under arrest. The criminal history report is an invaluable tool that serves as proof of someone’s trustworthiness and is therefore used at employment, for rental contracts, licensing and certification, and similar situations where the person needs to submit a police record copy to support personal character. Although many actions undertaken by the police officers in the community are recorded at the police logs, not all information is public.
Thus, preserving crime scene evidence is often one of the first ‘fast- track’ action which the police would normally perform straight after the crime unless, there is an injured victim, as then that would be a much critical task for the police, as preserving life means securing important eyewitnesses. In good practice, the police usually access and collect as much information as possible right after the incident, which is also referred to the ‘golden hour’. This is to ensure that valuable evidence is collected with minimum chances of being tampered or destroyed (Stelfox, 2012: 152), in particularly forensic samples, which are prone to contamination when the crime scene is at outdoor (UNODC, 2009:
Thesis statement: Police should wear body cameras because playing body cameras could improve the public’s view of police by showing the human side, help to provide evidence when a person may not be able to, and it protects the officers and public both. Cameras Imagine there is a huge case going on where a police officer is coming under question on if dealt with a potential suspect in the correct way. Now think about the money being used to provide lawyers, a judge, a jury, etc., to handle the high profile case. Now there is two possible outcomes, there was police misconduct and abuse of power, or the police officer did everything correctly and by the book. Either way there needs to be something that can protect the public from police misconduct and also protect law enforcement from dealing with false accusations that can tarnish their reputation.
In our states, cities, towns and neighborhood the police department tries their utmost best to protect the community from destructive law offenders. Officers put their lives on the line everyday they put on their uniform and report for duty, not knowing the possible outcome at the end of their shift. However, in every community the police department has two different strategies that they can help better serve the community. Problem oriented policing also known as POP or community oriented policing also known as COP. Each of these two different strategies have their advantages and disadvantages that they bring to the community.
INTRODUCTION In almost all societies police is a source of controversy as it constitutes a legitimate force, interposed between the state and the law on one side and citizens on the other. What people think about the police and their work becomes extremely important and can serve as a significant social indicator of the political health of a society as a whole (Benson, 1981 cited by Andreescu & Keeling, 2010, p.1). The manner in which the stakeholders "see" the police can determine the perceived legitimacy of the institution itself, the respect and the citizens’ compliance with the law (Tyler & Huo, 2002), and the quality of their interaction and cooperation with the police as well. The police equally represents a matter of substance and image,
If I was the first person to respond, I would check the victim for a pulse and if he or she was breathing. Once the determination was made that the victim was deceased, I would secure the crime scene to prevent contamination of the any evidence. I would start a crime scene log to document any official entering and leaving the crime scene. Because I was the first to respond, I will not let anyone into the crime scene without approval from the supervisor of the scene. If first responders, EMTs or other officers were already at the scene, I would start a log to annotate anyone who was in the crime scene upon my arrival.
I was very impress with this police officer knowledge because he gave me more than enough information about the police agency he work for. Even though he work before he decide to settle down to the one he want. I learn that before you can go to any other division you must start at patrolling. Until you get pass that level you cannot move on to the one you desire the most. Plus you have to get interview all over if you want to switch.
Next, is the security of the population and serving the need without harming others. The courtroom also can be used as an example of this need. The environment of the courtroom being safe is another one of the needs the criminal justice professionals owe to every person. Following all of the rules of the U.S. constitution while prosecuting a defendant with the facts of the case still must be followed for the population. Security also of the populations lives must be followed such as capturing criminals causing harm to
If you pay attention to the news, you have probably heard about police brutality. There are almost constant reports of police abusing their power and, consequently, injuring those that they are meant to protect. Police should not be required to wear body cameras while on duty! Why should they be monitored to make sure that they are properly doing their job? Why should they be expected maintain the same standards that they enforce on others?
