Modern Day Policing And Society: Where Are We Headed? Maggie Green Edward Spangler CRJ-100 1/28/2018 Modern day policing has been formed by three different policing eras. The three eras include the Political, Reform, and Community Eras.
Within the last three decades or so, American policing has made great strides and has seen significant changes in both it’s practice and thinking. The study and interpretation of current practices, new theories and perspectives on policing, in combination with the worlds technological advancements have all brought about these changes in todays policing. In fact, this past decade has proven to be the most innovative. “The following information is a brief overview of the key elements and research results for the most notable police strategies; the standard model of policing, community policing, broken windows policing, hot spots policing, Compstat, and problem-oriented policing” (Santos, 2005).
To what extent have police forces developed throughout the Twentieth century? Many changes have occured to police forces throughout the twentieth century. Rapid technology developments have effected the way the police work, providing them with new and increasingly more complex equipment. Wheres the nineteenth century police officer had neither a radio or a walkie-talkie, reling heavily on a whistle to alert collegues to the scene of a crime; two-way radios had been introduced in the 1920s.
Heroism, Institutions, and the Police Procedural (2009) written by Alasdair McMillan, director and television producer, explains that there is no good and evil standards restricting any character within the HBO series The Wire, created by David Simons. The standards that restrain the hero's in most storytelling has been rendered nonexistent, as well as with what makes the villain a villain. Instead there is no hero or antagonist solely responsible for any one person's actions, especially so as The Wire has no main character, but rather a large cast that takes on multiple storylines within one diverse plot. The argument that McMillan makes within this chapter of The Wire: Decay and American Television, is that no one can be solely good or bad, and they are not entirely responsible for their situation, but rather that a much larger system takes place and controls their actions, namely institutions. McMillan brings to the table what Simons as well as philosophers believed to be the basis of heroism within a story, making alterations to fit their
Unlike today effective law enforcement was not seen solely in terms of arrests and convictions, this was partly because it was sometimes difficult to apprehend suspects. Prior to the 14th Century, when a community failed to catch a suspect immediately, they still tried to identify the suspects so they could not return to their community or any other law-abiding community. The community lack privacy so identifying criminals was easier. This was a common legal practice, whereby the criminal would be labelled an outlaw and reduced to hunted, vermin, liable to arrest when seen and execution when arrested. This method of punishment isolated the person from any sense of community, because they were excluded from their homes and land shortages made
The Political Era The police reform movement occurred in New York City in the 1840s which entailed efforts to improve policing. Although previous efforts to improve policing were made, none had such an effective impact as the murder of Mary Cecilia Rogers who disappeared for three days; her body was found in the Hudson River. The murder received a huge amount of publicity including demands for the police to solve the crime; however the police seemed unwilling to investigate the case until they were offered a substantial reward. There after the old policing system was transformed based on Peel’s model which entailed the development of an ethical police force. Some of the changes included hiring 800 officers, better hiring selections,
The job of a police officer is much more demanding than what is commonly displayed in the media. It is often portrayed as a crime fighting spree, but in reality, it is a multi-faceted profession. As a police officer, the safety of the general public is the key responsibility. Therefore, Police face danger on a daily basis, yet they must handle all situations with professional composure. “Policing includes activities of any individual organization acting legally on behalf of public or private organizations or persons to maintain security or social order while empowered by either public or private contract, regulations, or policies, written or verbal”.
Hey Sammi, I agree with your perspective of racism. I like how you gave an example of the portrayal of police officers in other states and the shootings of African Americans. It’s unfortunate that police officers would open fire even if the person is unarmed. Your statement of how people are judged within 10 seconds of the meeting is quite accurate, because I’ve heard things from people about others from the first time they meet someone. It is nice knowing how in the Bay Area there aren 't much racial discrimination occurring, because all the cultures has came together and merged.
History: UK: Since 9/11 the police forces in the UK and USA have developed and adapted in many ways to keep up with the changing modern world. In this essay I will discuss the history of the police, the initial impacts of 9/11, the year by year developments and the future of the police in our society. In the UK, law enforcement and policing during the 1700s and earlier were not national organisations, they were organised by local communities like town authorities instead. During the 1730s, local improvement Acts made by town authorities often included provision for paid watchmen or constables to patrol towns at night, while rural areas had to rely on more informal arrangements.
