All officers who have not had the opportunity to employ this philosophy should do so as soon as possible. It will make your job so much easier. Establishing relationships with the community is always very important, and so is earning their trust. Community Oriented Policing does that and more. Examples of Community Oriented Policing
Random sample surveys were conducted in Seattle, Washington by telephone, which asked citizen’s various questions concerning their feelings towards police. These questions included their level of happiness in regards to police problem-solving, their views on police hassling citizens, and if they had ever experienced, or perceived to experience racial profiling or bias by law enforcement (Wu, 2014). Of all the citizens that took part in the survey, 64% of African Americans felt that racial profiling was a problem inside their neighborhoods, 28% of Asians, 20% of whites, and 34% of Hispanics agreed (Wu,
All are vital values when running a city, state, or any type of government. For starters, Political responsiveness is imperative to keeping a constituency happy. The speed at which the government can respond to what the citizens need is imperative. When a councilmember or mayor is elected, the cities citizens expect to have their needs met and the promises of the government achieved. The efficiency and effectiveness with which how they do their jobs and civic duties will show in not the polls, but the quality of living in which the citizens are afforded.
For example according to the bureau of justice survey,Nearly 90 percent of local police departments were using some type of video camera technology in 2013, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics survey. About 17 percent used automated license plate readers and about 49 percent used video cameras for the surveillance of public areas. Facts about the solution of body cameras on police officers is”25% of the nation 's 17,000 police agencies are using them with fully 80% of agencies evaluating the technology”(What Is Police Brutality? Depends on Where You Live." NBC News.
At the point when law authorization officers target occupants in light of race, religion or national source as opposed to conduct, wrongdoing battling is less successful and group doubt of police develops. An investigation of the Los Angeles Police Department demonstrated that minority groups that had been unjustifiably focused in the past keep on experiencing more prominent doubt and dread of cops. To find this inadequate strategy that undermines open certainty, we require more grounded strategies against racial profiling at all levels — from nearby to government — and also more compelling preparing and oversight of cops, and frameworks of responsibility. Twenty states have no laws forbidding racial profiling by law implementation, as indicated by a NAACP report discharged in September.
The police were separated from the community and regarded as enemies to the general public. This made crime control completely problematic. The police needed to work cohesively with the community in order to eliminate further occurrences of crime, so officers were placed in different areas of the community in order to study the behavior of the citizens in society (Myhill & Bradford,
U.S Criminal Justice System United States criminal justice system may not be termed as the worst in the world. It is equally not the best system due to a variety of uncoordinated and uncomplimentary efforts among the components of the system that include the corrections, the police force, and the court system. Each of these components has a varying degree of responsibilities in the criminal justice system, which need be executed concurrently. However, due to lack of coordination, the relationship between the elements is characterized by conflicts, friction, and poor communication (Peak, 2012). The police service is also intended to protect the public, but in most instances, the relationship between the force and the public is tarnished so
prosecution, which led them to believe that there were many issues within the system that led to the wrongful conviction that needed to be fixed so another minority was not charged with a murder that was not committed by them. The Inquiry found that the investigation was not done suitably for the standards that the police, and the Crown have. The case’s evidence was insufficient due to lack of investigation at the crime scene, of the witnesses, and of the charges pursued. There was also an insufficient amount of sensitivity of this case due to the fact that it was the prosecution of a visible minority and the lack of training done on the respect to sensitivity on visible minorities. As well as the absence of sufficient review led to the wrongful conviction because they didn’t review the first eyewitness reports and relied only on the second report, which were influenced by an incompetent and unprofessional
Subsequent responses included feeling highly uncomfortable (16.8%) and slightly uncomfortable (28.5%) participating in activities outside. In the survey, 45.3% of total registered disabled responded that they feel uncomfortable with public transportation unequipped for the disabled and other facilities, with 54.7% answering that they do not feel uncomfortable. The reason with the most responses to feeling uncomfortable with doing activities outside was the lack of convenience facilities such as the lack of transportation services and ramps at 47%. Such results imply that the South Korean society has not yet recognized individuals with disabilities as people living together in society,
One reason that explains why immigrants do not seek help is the language barrier that immigrants struggle with. The fact that “mental health treatment relies on direct verbal communication rather than objective tests as for physical illness …” (Kim et al., 2011, p.104) makes it really difficult for immigrants with low English proficiency levels to accurately describe their symptoms to a doctor further isolating them without receiving professional help. Many cultures also consider mental health issues “taboo” and might not have direct translations for such issues. (Simich, 2010, p.20).
Since its inception, policing has changed form in many different ways, while collectively searching to improve. From departmental Standing Operating Procedures, to tactics, diversity, sensitivity training, methods of investigation, analytics, logistics and countless other aspects, the desire to improve policing never ceases. I believe a category responsible for improving all aspects of policing will always be intelligence. How it is obtained, disseminated, used and the constant demand of proficiency in all three areas. This along with the selection of qualified, knowledgeable, resourceful and experienced individuals into leadership positions within the Division, promotes the best opportunity for improvements in this area.
Policy 5 focused on training and education for law enforcement as well as the community and the last policy focused on officer wellness and safety. These six polcies while different in scope from the two previously discussed commisions dealt with similar issues, public perception, public policy, and the trust or lack of trust between law enforcement and the public. President Obama put it nicely, “When any part of the American family does not feel like it is being treated fairly, that’s a problem for all of us. It means that we are not as strong as a country as we can be.

Crime specific strategies are targeted strategies, targeted specific offense committed by specific types of offenders at specific times and place (Hoover, L. 2014). New York City introduces a crime specific strategy by using random patrol in the early days, and it produce positive results. A crime specific strategy entails a combination of match between targeting and tactics (Hoover, L. 2014). There are different ways to be effective in reducing crime such as planning, monitoring, contemplative, being proactive and continuously too modified. While being proactive in doing investigation will help to reduce crime by leading to more arrests being made.
Policing in today’s society has been impacted through a multitude of influences including social, political, and economical to name a few. One factor that has, in more recent years, left its imprint within policing is race. Race, brings up the subtopics of ethics, corruption, accountability, and public views on policing. The following paper will discuss these subtopics to help further understand why and how race plays such a significant role in current day society and policing.
