We will also discuss the tactical SWAT team in terms of concepts used in class in a more theoretical and conceptual level. Also, we will also explore potential problems that might arise in practice. A special weapons and tactical team also known as a SWAT team is an elite tactical unit in various national law enforcement departments. They are trained to perform high-risk operations that fall outside of the abilities of regular officers. SWAT team members' duties include: performing hostage rescues and counter-terrorism operations; serving high risk arrest and search warrants; subduing barricaded suspects; and engaging heavily-armed criminals.
But in 1853, there occurred the first large-scale form of police brutality. Certain areas of the city had become very dangerous and in an attempt to reassert control in these areas, the NYPD created a strong-arm squad. This squad consisted of plainclothes officers armed with clubs. The officers went into the dangerous neighborhoods and “beat senseless” every known gang member, regardless of what they were doing at that specific time. Perceiving the results of the strong-arm squads as positive, the police department decided to make the nightstick mandatory equipment for all police officers.
But in order to establish a successful Investigation they needed to follow the basics of crime investigation by establishing the crime, finding out who did it, and being able to prove they did in an effective way so that all the evidence could be used in court. John Orr was the main arson investigator for the Glendale fire department and the surrounding area. Since there were not very many arson investigators at that time John Orr would investigate many of the fires in the Southern California area. Everyone who worked with John Orr would be baffled at how good he was at his job. Most of the time he would just look at a fire and know exactly where the point of origin was.
Once a law enforcement agency has established that a crime has been committed, a suspect must be identified and apprehended for the case to proceed through the system. Sometimes, a suspect is apprehended at the scene; however, identification of a suspect sometimes requires an extensive investigation. Often, no one is identified or apprehended. In some instances, a suspect is arrested and later the police determine that no crime was committed and the suspect is released. (Bureau of Justice Statistics) If the justice system fails then any crime can be committed such as rape, burglary, murder, driving under the influence, etc.

Teaching and protecting special needs children is her livelihood and considers these children as her own. Teacher Hansens perspective is taken for granted, and we want all our teachers to protect our children but the big picture is we can harm our youth as well. It is of utmost importance that the administrators of these schools be informed of which teachers or other staff members are carrying a firearm on the grounds. Policies procedures and proper training need to be in place at these states that allow teachers to carry firearms. Communication is so crucial to prevent any future tragedies on school
* Deadly Force * If a peace officer has probabl cause to believe that a suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious bodily injury to the officer or others then the use of deadly force is justified. * Leadership Responsibilities: * Establish a clearly defined policy * Review all use of force incidents * Ensure officers receive quality training in the use of force * Review and update policies * Set the example and make on the spot correctios * Small infractions lead to major incidents. During class we learned about the use of force continuum. During class I learned that the use of force continuum was broken down to 5 or 6 broad levels that are designed to be flexible as the need of force changes in the situation.

This incident is going to be utilized to map out and analyze the dynamics of hostage/crisis situations. In every situation involving hostages, the situation should be attempted to be resolved with no injury to hostages, bystanders, police officials, or the hostage-taker.

Also, the area in which the incident is taking place is within close proximity to a middle school and public library, which places any individual within the vicinity in danger.
Responsibilities of different uniformed public services In this assignment I will be looking at the main responsibilities of two public services the police and the army. I will also be looking at the performance indicators and what they do on a daily basis. Police The responsibilities of a police officer are often extremely broad. Although their main responsibilities are usually keeping the peace, enforcing the law, protecting the public and property, and the prevention and detection of crimes, officers are usually expected to be able to respond in some fashion to a wide variety of situations that may arise while they are on duty. The actual purpose of the police in theory is to deter crime before it happens.
Crime Scene Investigation CRJ 320 Crime Scene Investigation One of the most important aspects of being trained in Law Enforcement is the ability to conduct a crime scene investigation. The ability to contain and not contaminate the crime scene while also gathering information is a daunting task for any individual. Taking steps to insure the scene is secure, wounded are cared for and that evidence remains intact are just a few of the necessary tasks. Attorney General Janet Reno once stated that “Actions taken in these first few hours of investigation at a crime scene can play a pivotal role in the resolution of a case. Careful, thorough investigation is key to ensuring+ the potential physical evidence is not tainted or destroyed or potential witnesses overlooked.
