The available services for victims are provided on a case to case basis. Training is also provided for staff members that are handling domestic violence cases and simplify compensation collection or resolution between the lawbreaker and the suspect. In reference to Simpson case, victims’ rights were severely violated. Nicole Simpson was neglected of her victim’s rights; she was not given protection nor a police escort after she filed a complaint of intimate violence. The accused O.J. Simpson should have been given a restraining order to protect Nicole, there were still access to her even after she made a complaint of intimate violence. Changes have to be made for the future, police that is handling cases such as intimate violence should have a prompt response. The restraining order wouldn’t do any good if it isn’t enforced, the perpetrator should be return to police custody to guarantee the safety of the victim. Compensation can be used as a tool to discourage offenders from committing acts. Families and victims should be compensated for the grief that they were put through and the losses they may have had (Fattah & Peters,
I, Jerry Spradlin, am an Investigator with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office. The following statement is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge. On 05/08/2014, Joey Brewer filed a report with the PCSO in reference to a vehicle being stolen from his car lot. Mr. Brewer advised responding deputies that a white male drove onto the lot in a red Ford Ranger (which was confirmed stolen out of Jacksonville) and asked to test drive a 1999 Gold Jeep (VIN: 1J4GW58S6XC565775/ Valued at $5000.00). Mr. Brewer allowed the male to do so and after three hours the male had not returned. Mr. Brewer checked the vehicle's GPS and observed the vehicle traveling around Conway. While the report was being made, Arkansas State Police located the vehicle and

The organization that I chose to research is Meriden-Wallingford Chrysalis, Inc. located at 14 W Main St #103, Meriden, CT 06451.

I have learned Lynn Police Department uses Facebook and Twitter. For example, there was a recent robbery in Lynn Massachusetts. “The Santander Bank at 35 Market Square was robbed on Tuesday October 13 at 11:01 a.m. An unidentified male entered the bank and demanded cash from the bank teller” ( https://www.facebook.com/LynnPoliceDepartment?fref=ts). Lynn Police Department used Facebook in a positive way by involving the community to seek answers on the suspect. This can really make a difference in the community, because it provides citizens to give tips and useful information. Additionally, Lynn Police Department used Twitter to report about the robbery at Santander Bank as well. This is helpful because it’s another social media tool to involved
Most effective interventions associated with domestic violence include safety planning, child advocacy, information advocacy, and alternate housing. This is generally referred to as “legal advocacy” and involves the criminal justice system. During this process first responders and legal professionals initiate referrals and support such as protection orders, court accompaniment, referral to services, and community therapy agencies (Hamby et. al., 2015)
As defined in “Establishing A Domestic Abuse Care Pathway”, domestic violence is “Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those… who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass… psychological, physical, sexual, financial, or emotional [abuse].” Domestic violence is common, with around 1 in 4 women experiencing it at some point in their lives, and there are many things that need to be fixed about the handling of domestic abuse cases. (Bradbury-Jones) Our society should fix how we deal with abusers, set up an improved care pathway to deal with domestic abuse, and in this pathway improve the response to
In the year of 1979 our Texas Legislative passed the Crime Victims’ Compensation act, this started the Compensation to Victims of Crime Fund and the Crime Victims Compensation (CVC) program (web. Crime Victims’ Compensation). This allows victims to be able to join the program to retrieve financial help when a crime is commit to them if they are eligible.

Crime victim compensation is a government program that reimburses victims of violent crimes. Victims can get compensated for assault, rape, and homicide and their families can be reimbursed for many of their out of pocket expenses (Karmen, 2016). Every state has a crime victim compensation program that allocates funds to survivors of violent crimes that is funded by fees collected from criminal offenders and a federal grant through the Victims of Crime Act, administered by the U.S. Department of Justice. In order to be eligible for compensation the victim must report the offense within a certain amount of time, cooperate in the investigation and prosecution, and file an application within a set time. The expenses covered by compensation vary
Minority New Yorkers on a daily basis have experienced the negative actions of the NYPD by simply walking or driving. This would not be considered suspicious if you were not a minority male. Families never have an opportunity to feel safe when their male family members leave their home because of the actions of the NYPD officers. There are more than 179 cases of unarmed victims killed by the police (Kerby,2012). Improving the relationships of the minority communities and the NYPD is very important to strengthen New York City and combat crime.
Ethical leadership and behavior is a challenge to law enforcement officers. Many reason exist as to why there is a challenge. Although challenges exist within police departments across the entire world, the challenges could be prevented or avoided. Officers who lack courage, honesty, and loyalty to the people the sworn to protect need to find a different profession. Leadership and leadership mentoring needs to be implemented in law enforcement training.
I enjoy reading your post. When I first started college, I use to think it was hard to get into the criminal justice field and then I met a guy while I was taking my associates and working as an assembler we started a conversation about a college and I told him what I was going to school for then he offer to help me because he is a corrections supervisor at a youth facility the conversation was going pretty well until he told me that the only way that he would help me was if I went on date with him. I did not take his offer. I know my potential and the passion I have in this field and tomorrow I am having a job interview at the youth correction this individual is working at. My advice to you is try to get a job with the skills you have and
Domestic Violence is a major social issue facing our society, states, communities, and towns. The biggest population affected is woman. Domestic violence is something that is brushed under the rug per say. Those that suffer from domestic violence and those that inflict domestic violence are hesitant to talk about it. It is a subject that is often avoided. Domestic violence does not discriminate among race, age, or gender. Domestic violence is happening all around us. Domestic violence is one of the most under-reported and under-recorded crimes in our society (Abbot & Williamson, 1999). Domestic violence continues to be considered a major public health issue. Domestic violence laws can be traced as far back as 753B.C. During this time
