Riverside, California there seemed that a lot of change was needed and the Chief Fortier was intended to be a "change agent." Often, the person who takes the lead in an alternative effort of the magnitude has become destined for a short tenure, because the alterations upset so many people in the organization. Chief Fortier experience might become compared with those of Chief Davis in Lowell and Chief Mangan in Spokane. Did Davis or Mangan do better, or was the situation in Riverside simply more challenging? Chief Mangan, compared to Chief Fortier was an outsider, both devoted their two years to build the foundation of support, in the community and the police department.
Being a police officer is a very stressful and demanding career, but in order to meet the ultimate goal of becoming a criminal investigator the candidate must have both the will and determination to push forward. After receiving adequate experience, you must then apply for a criminal investigator position. Do not become discouraged if you do not get the position on the first try. Depending on the size of the department, it may take years before a position becomes available, so determining is the
They are taught early on that every encounter, and every individual is likely to become threat for them. They always have to be very alert while on the job because, as cops are often known to say, “complacency kills.” While in the academy, rookie officers aren’t just told about the risks that they face on a daily basis. They are also shown gut wrenching graphic, sad dash-cam footage of officers being assaulted, their weapons being taken away from them, or worse, them being fatally shot or wounded after lack of attention or complacency, as most law enforcement officers like to put it. These rookie cops are taught that the number one perpetrator isn’t the criminal that can be seen on the video, but that it is the officer’s lack of better judgement. While watching these videos, rookie officers are usually thinking to themselves that they can’t let that happen to them while out on the job.
Being a State Trooper is a risky but rewarding job. State Trooper duties vary from many different jobs. They enforce all applicable state laws and provide security at the State Police Headquarters Complex while also providing security at the State Capitols. State Troopers provide crowd control during big events and provide dignitary protection. There are serval skills you need to have to succeed as a State Trooper and their are personality characteristics that are essential in this career.
Plus, the cameras can help in training for the officers when they are learning. Imagine there is a new officer joining and he has never had experience. How is he going to be able to do things that other police officers do, in which they have many years of experience. It’s almost impossible for the new police officers to learn what took other police officers many years. The article “Considering Police Body Cameras” talks about how in training the instructor can easily pull different types of recording of interactions, that way new police officers can get a feel for how they should do things (1802).
In our states, cities, towns and neighborhood the police department tries their utmost best to protect the community from destructive law offenders. Officers put their lives on the line everyday they put on their uniform and report for duty, not knowing the possible outcome at the end of their shift. However, in every community the police department has two different strategies that they can help better serve the community. Problem oriented policing also known as POP or community oriented policing also known as COP. Each of these two different strategies have their advantages and disadvantages that they bring to the community.
Weitzer is able to illuminate how there is a correlation between poverty and crime, “an interaction between (1) high neighborhood-level poverty and unemployment, (2) residents’ involvement in illicit survival strategies […], and (3) aggressive police practices – each of which contributes to popular alienation from and avoidance of the police, if not outright hostility toward them. This syndrome is more fundamental than the popular assertion that officers’ racial animus is the main problem.” (477). Because high crime areas have such a strong dislike and mistrust for the police, answering some calls become dangerous for the responding officers. While answering these calls officers become more alert and anxious. Most of the time when an officer makes an arrest or discharges his/her weapon it has nothing to do with race but it has everything to do with the crime.
My major obstacle which I have faced within my life would be when I became the leader in the Army. Due to my military operational specialty, I had to manage many military equipment and I was responsible for the maintenance of them as squad leader. While checking out the military equipment with equipment lists for an annual report, I discovered that some of them did not properly work and missed out. So, I was really shocked and had no idea how to handle this situation. Since then, I tried to find a way to overcome this obstacle and discussed with my team members how to work it out.
Driving Age Acquiring a driver’s license is one of the most awaited milestones of a teen life. Most driver education classes being offered in driving schools or education classes in high schools aren’t thorough enough to teach the teenagers what they need to know when they get behind the wheels. Experience is an important teacher when it comes to driving and the more time they spend in different kinds of roads; the more confident they feel and will be able to respond to stressful or challenging situations. But years of dismaying statistics have made the safety advocates across everywhere to rethink whether 16 or 18 year olds are really enough to get them driving (Aspen, 2016). Legal driving age has been a constant argument as the major reason for death among teens is these accidents happening.
Thus, preserving crime scene evidence is often one of the first ‘fast- track’ action which the police would normally perform straight after the crime unless, there is an injured victim, as then that would be a much critical task for the police, as preserving life means securing important eyewitnesses. In good practice, the police usually access and collect as much information as possible right after the incident, which is also referred to the ‘golden hour’. This is to ensure that valuable evidence is collected with minimum chances of being tampered or destroyed (Stelfox, 2012: 152), in particularly forensic samples, which are prone to contamination when the crime scene is at outdoor (UNODC, 2009:
To be able to maintain a professional fire service, stability in the Training Division is extremely important. For a certain period of time, we without a Training Officers, only an assistant to the Trainer. He was fairly young when he joined the Fire Department and took over assistant trainer a few years after with minimum experience. It is realistic to say that it was not well received by our senior staff. Young staff well educated through the Fire School Academy, motivated to do more for the Department.
These commissioners were chosen for specific aspects aspects of municipal affairs, for example: public works, finance, or public safety. Not long after Galveston other cities started developing their own version of the plan. Now, moving along to the city manager plan. This plan had hired experts to hold office instead of just anyone they could find. This wasn’t like in the older times of if you knew someone at the police station, you could be a police officer without any certification, and also prevented urban bossed from hiring just anybody off the street, or someone they were close friends with.
