Or perhaps even more challenging is maintaining skilled personnel in the law enforcement agencies. The law enforcement agencies have however attempted to tackle the problem by ensuring the adequacy of compensation plans and the recognition of exceptional work done by the officers (Wilson, Dalton, Scheer & Grammich, 2010). Another challenge, which has at least been resolved, is barriers in sharing of intelligence between law enforcement agencies. The decisions to break these barriers were hugely influenced by the 2001 terror attacks (Best, 2015). Functions of Police in Relation to Juvenile Crime The roles of police officers in management of juvenile crime are diverse and have undergone changes over the years.
Minorities in the community have been subjected to violence by law enforcement in the United States for some time. This violence is called police brutality and it is unacceptable. The job of a police officer is to maintain public order, prevent, and detect crime. They are a part of a dangerous and stressful career that can involve risky situations that must be controlled. Sometimes police are put in situations that excessive force is needed.
Michael Small Kaplan University Police Operations December 27, 2016 Charmaine London Unit 3 Assignment Becoming a law enforcement officer includes much more than finishing an application and meeting. Offices run their candidates through a far-reaching arrangement of tests and exams, each intended to contract the field of candidates to progress just the individuals who are generally qualified. To accomplish this task the offices should be very much staffed with qualified and capable work force who will upset and check any criminal action and help the overall public in the most ideal way imaginable. The organizations have in this manner built up conceivable criteria on which the choice and enrollment of the potential law requirement officers
There are many cases where a cop are sued for using more force than necessary, sometimes on purpose and sometimes by accident. It can be hard to prosecute a cop for these actions due to the constant state of threat a cop’s life is at while doing their job and the unpredictability of their job. An example of an case where the police’s use of force were questioned was the Wardlaw v. Pickett case. In this case a man named, William C. Wardlaw decided to sue the United States Deputy Marshals, William Pickett and Albert Crew. Wardlaw claimed that the two violated his constitutional rights by using excessive force on him and falsing arresting and prosecuting him.
Excessive force can be any kind of unneeded force, above what is legally necessary to use. McDavid (2011) suggested that the new world order has actually produced a more complex security environment, with multiple threats. In the article, “How Reasonable Is the Reasonable Man: Police and Excessive Force (1994),” Geoffrey and Williams argues that excessive force of police leads to court action of police officers and “most accusations of excessive force are denied at the department level” not only in other countries but also here in Belize. The question of how “reasonable is the reasonable man” arises. Meaning what was the police officer state of mind at that said date of injuring the other party (civilian).
Although in movies, it is dramatized and harmless, it really is a dangerous psychological, physiological, and career destroying breakdown on law enforcement personnel. Hyper vigilance and hyper aggression among law enforcement, both on and off duty, is important to recognize to assume a balance in the high stress career that these individual 's face daily. Although much study has been done to discover the causes of hyper vigilance and hyper aggression, it is equally important to be proactive in the cause as well. Hypothesis: To conduct a study to measure hyper vigilance and hyper aggression on law enforcement officers with two or more year 's experience in the field. Then begin implementing a proactive counseling system at all levels (proactive, intervention, post-event) , then re measure the levels of hyper vigilance and hyper aggression among the same law enforcement officers.
Recruitment and retention is just one of the many issues police administrators face, there are also problems of the relationships between the community and police and the issue of budgets within each department. Administrators have a tough job in terms of hiring, control of their officers, days’ worth of reports and as always the firing process. If they have the ability to overcome the issues of their jobs then it is possible for a greater outcome pertaining to recruitment and
Nonetheless, all decisions went through a critical thinking process in order to find possible solutions for the post-conflict problems. MG Petraeus reached Mosul in a moment in which that area of operation (AO) required a leader who has skills set to apply effective critical and creative thinking process. Therefore, MG David Petraeus efficiently engaged critical thinking on his AO in a way that never happened before. Precise use of critical thinking process can lead to a success problem solving process, but on the other hand, lack of applying critical thinking can lead to a mission failure. Critical Thinking In order to become a good critical thinker, you must understand and apply the universal intellectual standards, clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth and significance (Richard and Elders, 2008).
Build understanding a. Discuss one issue at a time b. Clarify assumptions c. Explore interests and feelings Now that everything has been stated and everyone is ready to move on, there should be an effort to identify and approach topics both parties view as important. This step should be executed carefully: make sure to avoid finger pointing, using pronouns, and implying responsibility on anyone in particular. By using neutral, inoffensive language, a sense of ease is created – the last thing you want in these situations is for anyone to feel attacked, as the issue may escalate even further. If done right, there should be room and acknowledgement to create an agenda of things to work towards.
Managers who are open to ideas and ready to accept the challenge are in a better position to prepare themselves for the future challenges of change. The last most important thing in facing the challenges of change is that, every Organization must:-- • Introduce the Change at the Right Time. • The Change must be Gradual and not Drastic. • Increase the Involvement Factor.
