The neighborhood watch program has brought us closer as a unit and is helping us achieve the ultimate goal of one day being crime free. We chose to use a peacemaking design for our neighborhood watch. We realize that the citizens of our neighborhood are not law enforcement and we do not have the resources or training that our local law enforcement does. By ensuring that we offer a more nontraditional approach to retribution of the offenders, we have a lower percentage of reoccurring offenders. By dealing with the offenders through communication and education, we set ourselves apart from the local law enforcement.
The high likelihood of detection by the police, and the deterrent effects of punishment have been seen as forms of crime prevention. But the traditional criminal justice agencies have prevention as a sort of side effect or unintended consequence of their main aim of detection and punishment. And they are, as we have seen in previous lectures, not that efficient. Specific measures aimed at preventing crime have always been around in an everyday sense. Families, schools and communities disapprove of crime and this acts as a form of 'informal social control' People lock their doors and windows against burglars, and perhaps avoid badly lit areas, or certain parts of town, with the intention of reducing the likelihood of victimisation.
I have made these precautions because if not followed it could cause a child being hit by a car. When reaching the park, Staff can potentially come across lots of litter. Staff could avoid these risks and hazards by ensuring all children are aware of the dangers, giving them instructions on not to pick up anything of the floor.

Neighborhood watch programs are great because it gets the community involved and reduces crime. The negative part is that this may cause neighbors to turn on each other. Crime stoppers is a great asset because people are tempted to call in and do call in to provide the police with tips in order to solve a crime. The bad part about this is that the police get so many false leads that it jams up the investigation. Citizen patrols are great because citizens can patrol in cars or on foot in order to help police prevent or stop crimes from happening.
If the kids are allowed to be outside during the night by themselves, without any adult supervision, they will be under great danger. The curfew will also protect the teens and kids by keeping them out of gangs and reducing gang activity, therefore also making the neighborhoods safer. By keeping the kids at home they will be safe from the danger of the streets at night. If kids are outside during the night, not only will they be in physical danger, but also in academic danger. Kids that are out at night will be wasting precious time that could be used for more productive things.

*.. In my opinion, cars should be restricted from town centres but only during peak hours. It would be impractical and impossible to ban cars completely because they are such an essential part of modern city living, however the problems of pollution and traffic congestion must be reduced. This solution is not perfect but the best we can do, and infact is done already in some major cities like Melborn in Australia. Essay 2.
Police Brutality: The Use of Excessive Force Angelice Dollson CRJ–422 Criminal Justice Capstone Robert Jackson March 7, 2011 The police officers are to protect and serve the public and communities’ with their best interest at heart. Members of law enforcement are government officials that impose the laws and preserve order. There are occasions, when the police officers are engaged in a dangerous and stressful call of duty that can involve violent situations that must be controlled.

I believe, owning a gun has both, positive and negative effects, and also play an important role in our society. Across the nation, both men and women own guns for their careers, as a sense of protection or just for recreational use. Imagine policemen trying to stop crime without being able to carry a gun. It would almost be impossible for them to protect their lives and other innocent people among the community. Guns can protect others from harm and also frighten criminals into running away or giving up.
