Louis Riel should always be remembered as a heroic icon to Canadians. Though there is much controversy surrounding his heroism and villainy, Riel was an essential part of the development of Canada. Thanks to Riel, the Metis have received equal rights in our society; and formed one of Canada’s provinces, Manitoba. Riel was also one of the main reasons why the Canadian Pacific Railway was finalized and has been used to this day. Riel should undoubtedly be remembered as a heroic figure in
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.
Through caring about the community and being more involved in it officers are able to hold themselves more accountable to their actions. Regardless of the race or ethnicity of the people they are policing. Another way officers may be held accountable to their actions is the implementation of body cameras. The city of Rialto California has undergone this change requiring the entire police force to wear these body cameras. Christopher Mimis writing for the Wall Street Journal stated that "use of force by officers declined 60%, and citizen complaints against police fell 88%."
The nightmares of trench warfare from decades past strengthened Canadian intelligence. Once again, Canadians proved that they were a nation who deserved autonomy, could lead a battle with diplomacy, and ultimately ensure victory on foreign soil. Therefore, D-Day was significant to Canadians because the valor showed promise to the other nations that we were a capable country that deserved
However, Anderson refuses to neglect the truth: they are the villains. Slamming any pre-existing admirable outlook readers may have had, Anderson inquires, based on his observations, “the authorities, particularly the police, paid scant attention and sometimes abused the victims themselves” (Anderson, 27). Philadelphia is notorious for its high crime rate, marking the police as almost a necessity to the function of everyday life. However, due to the mistreatment of citizens, people began to refer to the police as “ineffective” and “unworthy of trust.” The safeness of an area is key to the number of individuals using that public space, ultimately deeming the police a negative factor. In addition to the negative safety element, policemen also partake in plain acts of racism.
For instance, it is reported that more black students report being stopped by the law enforcers as opposed to their white counterparts. This hence leads to biased policing, (Hayle, 2016). • Psychological profiling is also another factor. As per Gudjonnsonn et. Al (1997), there is little research that has been done leading to performance that may be proficient.
However, in Sutherland’s differential association theory he states that criminal behavior is learned from your intimate groups and the definitions of committing crime outweigh the unfavorable definitions (Scarpitti 2009). Since these offenders vary from investors to corrupt public officials they must have learned this behavior from someone they trusted and respected. Someone eventually told them it was “ok” to act this way and once they got enough of these definitions favorable to this crime they started committing it themselves. For example, a new police officer joins the force and the officer training him is doing some “under the table” dealings while out I the field. The new police officer talks to other members in the department and they reinforce these definitions favorable to this criminal behavior.
Defining moments are what shape and help develop a person through stages of their life. These important moments in life are not limited to just people. All things, including Canada have had many defining moments that still have an impact on modern society. The battle of Vimy Ridge granted Canada a global reputation and gave Prime Minister Robert Borden the push towards independence. The FLQ October Crisis was a terroristic incident that stopped Quebec independence.
According to Tuscaloosca and Oxford county, their personell have become more effective during an emergency. Even though it is mostly about using softwares, officers who use reactive policing are well equiped to face any challenges. COATIVE POLICING While systems and punishments are strong in most of the department, the community is not well connected. Coative policing involves the public to be part of their police station. Bringing the community to participate in the police work has inherent value to ring crime down.
It is equally important to understand that while there are positives to what community policing is, there are those who may misinterpret what that entails for CPOs. It is not public relations but it seeks to improve relations with the public by creating awareness so public will allow them to do their jobs more effective and be more compliant. Community policing doesn 't mean that officers will give a pass on crime. "Critics suggest that it suggest that its primary focus is on community as opposed to crime, and its use of tactics other than arrest to solve problems detract from a proper focus on serious crime", ( ...Community Policing...,pg.18). Officers may receive scrutiny from their fellow counterparts because they don 't only focus on
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” (Wicklander & Zulawski, 2002, p.
Because of the failure of traditional law enforcement methods, it lead to community policing. "Community policing advocates argue that traditional policing is a system of response, that is the police respond to calls for services after the activity occurs" (Swanson, Territo, & Taylor, 2012, p. 51). Because of traditional policing police response is reactive and incident driven. Traditional policing did not work with the community as much. Since police response to calls after a crime happens, then there has to have a routine patrol, fast response rate to calls, arrests, and even follow ups (Scheider, n.d).
Canada’s strong economic fundamentals, natural wealth, • human capital and international connections all constitute enormous resources that can be brought to bear in making Canada a more innovative, dynamic and competitive player in the global economy. Transforming these resources into international influence and capacity requires strong and • coordinated leadership from all Canadian governments and a commitment helping Canadian businesses and citizens
But, does the employment growth simply suppress violence against police, or does it make them more formidable? I believe that the power through authority becomes a great liability-- since it can establish a narcissistic perception into one’s mind. The following statement is found in volume 22 of Lawrence Miller’s article, Violence and Behavior: Police officers are the only nonmilitary professionals who are authorized to use, when necessary, coercive physical force, including lethal force, against citizens as a regular and expectable part of their job, thus representing the ultimate expression of governmental power in civil society. Given this “ultimate expression of governmental power,” does it contribute to a particular officer’s immoral behavior? For instance, the substandard behavior of the chief deputy who Stevenson spoke with.
