The topic for this research proposal project is on community policing, and the factors that are involved in determining if relationships between law enforcement and citizens in these neighborhoods are strained. In order to be successful, community policing must be built on trust, as both civilians and law enforcement must work hand in hand to protect their communities. If there is a lack of trust, then these programs becomes broken, and can therefore lead to other violence and criminal acts. This research proposal project will focus on minority based communities and citizens, where the majority of the citizens are either African American or Hispanic. The references used in this study will be used to build knowledge on the subject, and to identify
People joining the police were hired solely off of experience, education, and screening for ones well-being, incorruptible character and fitness. Herbert Hoover joined Wickersham Commission to look into ethical issues that could be instilled in the criminal justice system in which they did find a lot of police misconduct. The Wickersham Commission was put in place to possibly fix police misconduct. The advantage with reform era was that the officers were more educated, and trained to be a police. This policing era was more motorized to get the citizens in other areas.
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.
This helps out with public relations and will strengthen the trust in the police during dark times and times of need. Community policing can make better relations between the police and citizens of the area. We should focus on community policing because “Law enforcement agencies often suffer from image problems. At worst, the public views them as authoritarian and paramilitaristic, quick to use force, and slow to admit mistakes. At best, citizens do not really know their local law enforcement officers.
The professional or reform era ascended due to the impact of the steps taken to separate police works from the influence of local politicians (Kelling & Moore, 1989). Even though time has carried us to the community era of policing, still corruption is a serious challenge for effective policing. Some police officers do not even understand what an act of corruption is, while others rationalize
Introduction The effective attainment of justice can be greatly hampered by vices such as police corruption. When the police force is corrupt, there are heightened likelihoods that justice may be compromised. Corruption in the police force can be related to the application and/or abuse of force, or bribery, among other vices. It is worth noting that the police have an instrumental role to play in the criminal justice process, because of their responsibility of maintaining law and order. The police corruption issue appears to prevail in various nations and cities.

The police agencies refer to various law enforcement agencies that aim at providing police related services to the general public. The principle roles of police agencies are to go after those people who have committed or engaged in specific crimes. Nevertheless, police agencies are entitled to other roles as well, for instance, they are responsible for imposing the law from enforcing speed limit laws to civil and criminal laws. In this case, a police agency is entitled to educate the general public about the laws and also communicating to the public when there is a criminal activity in a given area so that it creates awareness. Police agencies play the role of protecting peace among individuals by imposing the laws and setting measures against
Social disorganization theory emerged from the early school of criminology and focused on the characteristics of neighborhoods which indicate a lack of collective efficacy that prevents deviancy and criminal behaviors. These aspects are summarized as poverty, high residential mobility, deteriorating physical conditions, homogeneity of residents and other social ills present. A neighborhood watch group collaborates with a neighborhood in order to organize themselves against aspects of social disorganization (Bennett et al, 2006), by improving neighborhood conditions, running patrols and reporting suspicious behavior to the police. The goal of this polices that, is to create collective efficacy which causes reductions in criminal behavior. The issue with neighborhood watch is that is characterized as a "black-box" where many aspects of multiple criminological theories have been incorporated making it difficult to determine which concepts are effective for reducing crime.
Street level bureaucrats are police officers, teachers, social workers and others who interact with citizens. According to the video, street level bureaucrats are important to the citizens because whatever they get from the government is what the street level bureaucrats do for them. Their jobs are so complex because what they learn from in school or in training is different from what they would have to do when they are actually doing their job. They would have to take what they learned and apply it to the particular situation quickly without a lot of knowledge. Police officers are considered street level bureaucrats because they make the decisions that produce actual police policy as it affects citizens (pg.
The media should therefore try to get the right information from the police to help them to reveal the exact information to the nation. This way the community will feel obliged to inform the media of any information that might be of help to the community (Miller et al., 2014). 2 The police and the media can easily address crime in the community by cooperating with the members. The media should not only post the negative information but they should research and find the cause of the increased gangs. It is also important for the media to note that crime is everywhere and it is unfair to view Anonymous Community as one fool of criminals.
Strategic Policing “emphasizes an increased capacity to deal with crimes that are not well controlled by traditional methods” (Schmalleger, 2015, p. 175). The Problem-Solving Policing philosophy believes that social conditions can cause crime and that the underlying social problems need to be addressed. Community Policing has been described as “a philosophy based on forging a partnership between the police and the community so that they can work together on solving problems of crime, and fear of crime and disorder, thereby enhancing the overall quality of life in their neighborhoods” (Schmalleger, 2015, p.
