Relationship Between Private and Public Police Tiara Juarez CJS/250 November 24, 2013 John Adams Relationship Between Private and Public Police Private and Public Police are both very important. They both do their part in keeping the public safe in most cases. They do not however have the closest relationship. Having the public and private police work more closely together could help to prevent and fight against crime. There are several ways that this relationship can be improved to make this happen.
This could be because there is not enough officers either on at the same time or not enough officers in the department all together. I believe this could be an easy fix for all involved. Captain Strong can either allow both more overtime by officers that are of duty or allow officers to patrol the streets with another officer instead of by them self. This approach will not only increase morale for all patrol officers but it will also help reduce the workload by all patrol officers involved. The concerns of the patrol officers are the motivational strategies that are more than likely going to b effective.
She also found that the Police Community Support Officers helped contribute to the police by reducing juvenile anti-social behaviour and environmental disorder. As well as the Police Community Support Officers working to support the police, they were also found to have contributed to other agencies who were concerned with managing local conditions such as housing providers, environmental services, wardens and also anti-social behaviour teams. The introduction of the Police Community Support Officers did confirm some of the findings of the Foot Patrol Experiment, which was conducted 25 years earlier. This experiment did show that even though the foot patrol didn’t reduce the amount of crime on the streets, it did reduce the public’s fear of crime. Because of this the public saw their communities as safer and better places to live.
These individuals, whether they are male or female, put their lives on the line in order to keep the innocent safe. These men and women are known as police officers and they will do everything within their power to keep the communities they patrol safe. Officers would not be able to do so without the proper equipment including their guns, handcuffs, and bulletproof vests; but, what about their means of transportation? Officers need to be able to get from point A to point B in a very timely fashion. Often times we see officers doing their patrols in a squad car or on foot in major cities, but what about motorcycles?
These tools involve information systems for example CompStat. Lastly this paper will go over the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threat analysis that intend to implement predictive policing. Predictive Policing Application of Information Technology in Police Departments Information technology (IT) optimizes police departments’ performance to reduce crime versus random patrols on the streets. Using this method can be very effective in preventing crime. The method of CompStat has been a very successful process.
So when applying social institution status on organized crime is because organized crime exhibits the same characteristics as some of the examples giving for social institutions. Again organized crime does the opposite of what the other social institution have done and continue to do, but it does resemble the same traits in producing productive criminal individuals for the organizations. For this reason many persons are drawn to organized crime because it exhibits value for those persons, whereas in other areas those persons feel rejected (Lyman & Potter, 2007). The next part of
Local police agencies are the most commonly seen and known, do to their high visibility in our communities. Local agency conduct patrols which helps deter crime do to police visibility. Police also take reports that can be used in trials. Local police tend to be less specialized then the larger agencies such as the FBI, but will be well verse in multiple areas of law enforcement. Local agencies will also be less funded; less funding means these agencies will not always have the latest and greatest of equipment and resources.
The objective for law enforcement administrators is to make out the most excellent approach to deal with the increasingly shifting crime troubles in the population they provide assistance for, and to relate the fitting idea in the shape of efficient plans (Community Policing, n.d). Community oriented policing, problem oriented policing and zero tolerance policing are popular policing methods being utilized today. These policies have their pros and cons but they also have some similarities and seem to be of equal importance. The common similarity they all share is that they are all attempting to diminish crime and provide a safe environment for community members. It would be difficult to have one solitary plan or technique to aid in dealing with community issues therefore communities may find it necessary to seek out multiple methods of policing to satisfy their inhabitants.
Running head: Trends in Policing Trends in Policing Shane’ Hill-Bailey Kaplan University CJ229: Associates Capstone in Criminal Justice Prof Robert Bradley July 2, 2013 Trends in Policing Abstract Shane’ Hill-Bailey In response to making communities and the streets crime free by producing positive and effective results, two models of policing were developed; Community-oriented policing and Problem-oriented policing. This project defines Community-Oriented Policing and Problem-Oriented policing while assessing the strengths and weaknesses behind the two policing models. How these two policing models relate, compare, and contrast will also be discussed along with the challenges that police departments face when trying to implement the these models. Trends in Policing Community-oriented policing is a view-point that endorses organizational strategies. Community-oriented policing supports the organized use of partnerships and problem-solving methods.
These can help to create a better relationship between the police and the local community because if this happens then people will be more confident in the police’s capabilities and people in their communities feeling safer and people will then become a helping hand for the police when it is needed. Negative effects on the police A negative effect of ID cards could be that people who know that they will get in trouble if
