It is even more important to know there should be consequences for complaints or misconduct allegations that are found to be true. Law enforcement officers have an obligation to prove to the community they can be trusted and this principle ensures that. In the City and County of San Francisco the Office of Citizen Complaints accepts and conducts investigations regarding these citizen complaints. In addition to these investigations it is important for law enforcement officers to report inappropriate conduct they witness to their supervisor as well.
This type of policing involves utilizing what you have in the community. The future of policing involves utilizing community-oriented policing and continuing to work with each community and various community programs. A very popular example that I think should be implemented in all police departments is the use of community members. They can do things such as form a neighborhood watch program, which would result in less crime being committed in their communities. This would mean the police would not have so many calls and can concentrate on other
Integrity in Criminal Justice Abstract The role of integrity plays a major part in the criminal justice field. The integrity of a police officer more specifically has to be almost immaculate in order for him or her to perform their jobs to the best of their ability. As a police officer there will be many things and many opportunities for them to go against the integrity of a police officer, however once an officer takes the oath he or she must uphold it as best as possible. Their jobs are not always easy, however, if a police officer chooses to not act with great integrity or good sound judgment then the officer has disgraced the uniform and the city, state, or county that he or she was hired to protect.

This again leads to positive team cohesion because the team works together to complete the task
You will be called upon to resolve conflicts of many types; this must be done through impartial enforcement of the law, not through imposition of judgment or punishment. Victims, witnesses, and all others deserve to be treated with dignity and compassion. Offer details as to why these traits are important and how they enhance law enforcement?

There could also be more community policing that could reduce physical abuse and social disorder that attributes to domestic violence. Community policing is also a strategy that shows a reduction in physical and social disorder. There are many areas that have implemented these types of programs to promote confidence in the police and participate in anti-crime programs. Community policing has been used to promote police and the community to share information and to problem solve through the different types of programs initiated in the community (Wehrman & De Angelis 2011). Wehrman and De Angelis (2011) state that there are four common forms of involvement being 1) police-community, 2) encouragement of citizens to step forward and speak to help police, 3) participation in crime-prevention programs and 4) having citizens sitting on advisory boards or committees.
3). Leaders must know when to listen and when to lead and not be afraid to do, either. This aspect is present in the criminal justice system in regard to police apprehending criminals based on the “word” of citizens.

When this occurs, it is beneficial to both parties, strengthening the relationship between citizens and police
Though the methods and technology has changed policing at its very core is about the community Sir Thomas Peel the Father of Modern Policing stated, “The police are the public and the public are the police”. Therefore to have an understanding about law enforcement and the challenges that they face one must have a clear understanding about the community that a law enforcement officer serves in. Each town, city, county and state have their own ecosystem and one would be hard pressed to believe the tactic that work well in one community could be applied across the board to other communities. At its root the profession of policing is about understanding the language your community and environment speaks. There are many inherent dangers and issues involved in policing and in this paper we will examine a few of the issues law enforcement officers face.
To build good rapport between society and the criminal justice system there must first be a strong structure within the system. Secondly officers need to do more within the communities they patrol.
