The Development of Policing Taneka Lewis AJS/502 Timothy Cariker April 7, 2014 The Development of Policing Policing has been a major part of society for decades. Men and women across the United States risk their lives to ensure that people they know and do not know remain safe. The police and their place in government is a vital key in society.

Hence, having come to school, I realized that there were a lot of other schools where the similar situation existed. Thesis Statement: Race and community play the pivotal role in the life of every human being.

Diversity is about difference, and its values is the richness and variety that different people bring to sociality. When we talk about diversity we mean respecting and valuing all forms of difference in individuals. People differ in all sorts of ways which may not always be obvious or visible. These differences might include race and ethnicity, culture and belief, gender and sexuality, age and social status, ability and use of health and social care services. Below are some of the differences in the 61 million people who made up the UK population in 2007: • 16% were aged over 61 years • 90% were White British; in London this was 65% • 19% had a long term illness or disability • 77% identified with a religion (72% Christian, 3% Muslim, 1% Hindu and 1% other religions) • estimated 5-7% were lesbian, gay or bisexual (Source: British Council www.britishcouncil.org) It is recognised that some people and groups, because of a range of differences, find it more difficult to have their voice heard in mainstream society - their views, needs and perspectives may not be routinely taken into account, for example in planning services or undertaking research.
Diversity has become a major issue at the forefront of many corporation’s dealings. Issues with tokenism have been even more prevalent in the world of sport. Longstanding issues such as, the small number of females coaching male sports and the low percentage of minority head coaches in the NFL reflect Rosabeth Kanters’ view on minorities and tokens in the workplace. In this paper, I will use both articles to support Kanters’ position on tokens in the workplace. Bram A. Maravent’s article, “ Is the Rooney Rule Affirmative Action?
On the contrary, cultural diversity in criminal justice system has led to the establishment of a society where every American citizen has equal employment opportunities and where the minorities are sought to work as its very own professionals (Cliffnotes, 2012). Additionally, education opportunities have been subjected to both the minority and the majority creating a society of literate citizens. Again, the provision of culturally diverse community policing skills has led to the realization of rapport where members of the society from different cultures and are equally important. In most investigations, the cooperation and assistance of community members is very essential for success in detection and apprehension of criminals and law offenders. This is because it is the society that provides testimonies, the eye witnesses and other forms of assistance that is required to enforce the law effectively.
Marcus O. Allen Abstract 2 March 1st Throughout Ronald Taylors research it is shown the us a African Americans have similarities to other minorities, as we all become more diverse, and see several key factors in our economic status of us people.

Diversity, Inequality, and Immigration The terms diversity, inequality, and immigration are often used in our everyday conversation because they are at the forefront of our government, welfare reform, healthcare reform, immigration reform, diversity in the workplace. Inequality for women and minorities is something that has existed for a long time. However, when discussing these terms from a sociological perspective, it is important to define them: diversity is the presence of different types of people; inequality refers the social disparity between the rich, and the poor, the many different races, male and female, while immigration refers to the movement of those people who are not native to a country or region. The “United States is the most unequal of the economically developed countries, and it is increasing yet many American’s deny the existence of inequality (Glazer 2003)”. We do care about poverty and have developed programs to help the poor.
The world as we know it is composed of over 7 billion people with a multitude of cultures. A person’s culture is one of the many forms of diversity in the world. Diversity is “the quality or state of having many different forms, types, ideas, etc.” (Merriam-Webster, 2014). Diversity surrounds everyone in multiple aspects of life including the workplace.
