The civilian oversight of law enforcement movement in the United States is expanding and evolving. Oversight is becoming integrated into the fabric of our society and government; there is recognition that oversight is beneficial and here to stay (Attard, 2010). The reason behind there being a need for civilian oversight is because of the apparent failure of the police to show accountability of actions to the public. Commonly, it is much easier to have something along the lines of misconduct to transpire and because of it being by the police it is overlooked or unaddressed. This may be a problem
Unit 9 Assignment CJ211: Police Operations May 27, 2015 Police Technology has evolved so much from the time of the first modern officer. With population increasing, law enforcement officers needed technology that gave them the chance to do their jobs quicker and better. Instead of having to shoot a suspect, officers now have less than lethal weaponry which makes it possible to incapacitate using different methods. Crime mapping allows police departments to find correlations between crimes in different areas of the city. In order for law enforcement officers to contain traffic pursuits they now use pursuit management technology which helps to stop a pursuit before something gets damaged or somebody gets hurt.
However, the impact is that throughout years technology has changed for the better and it now allows employees to allocate the work, which needs to be done on a visual computer system e.g. laptop, computer or even a mobile phone. Cost Cost will have a big impact on the company for the reason that without
The Enclosed Space Protection System and the High Definition Surveying are two new technologies that law enforcement is using. These two new technologies are needed to help the law enforcement officer’s crackdown on the criminals. The law enforcement officers used to use the old batons, but they were starting to abuse people. Since the new technology has been invented the officers shouldn’t have to worry about that anymore. The ESDS was developed in Oak Ridge.
Running head: WORKPLACE COMPUTERS Technology in the Workplace: Utilizing Workplace Computers for Personal Use Joe Johnson Spring 2011 As the years move forward, there is an increasing amount of technological advancements being made. These advances are making many professional and personal tasks more convenient and easier to perform. And while there are many benefits and advantages to the ever changing and increasing technological resources available to individuals, there are also disadvantages in the workplace. With technology usage and technological advancement comes various ethical issues, specifically employee misuse and abuse of company computers for personal use. Thus, employers must establish and develop acceptable use policies that will serve to educate and inform employees about the acceptable use of workplace computers and technology.
While the increase in homicide rate from 2010 to 2011 may seem small there are certainly many schemes that the Philadelphia Police Department should be looking into in order to ensure that no further increase occurs. Problem oriented policing is an effective way to handle and prevent specific problems such as homicide and it is clear that other cities like Boston, Jersey City, Kansas City and Jacksonville have been met with success when they have implanted such schemes. For Philadelphia’s specific problem of gun crime specialized patrol could prove valuable and effective in reducing homicide rate as homicide is so closely tied to firearm availability and use. However, I do not think that one scheme in isolation will be the most effective plan in long term reduction which is why hot spot policing would add further success to a problem oriented policing scheme for Philadelphia. Specialized patrols for guns and hot spot policing are only two suggestions of how to implement problem oriented policing and tackle the homicide rate but the true advantage of implementing problem oriented policing is that it can and should be reviewed periodically and changed based on where the city’s major problems lie.
Introduction Forensic science has evolved into a necessity for the criminal justice world. Before the development of forensic science, many of the cases heavily relied upon confessions and testimonies of the witnesses. Forensic science has given police officers the ability to efficiently and effectively collect, analyze, and process evidence. Without forensic science, criminals would be committing the same crimes repeatedly. While criminals get more creative, the criminal justice system and forensic science specialists have to update the techniques and tools that are used while obtaining evidence for the new crimes.
Meanwhile, local cybercrime analysis programs and systems for predictable crimes are just now appearing, the internet would need at least national and, preferably, universal analysis tools to make it easier to combat cybercrimes. Internet service time usually involves criminal analysis at quicker rates and in less significant time breaks than the weeks, and sometimes months usual of straight crime analysis. Internet locations normally require tools that would not be stationary within the geographic location. Cybercrime analysis methods build straight on the systems that are studied and manufactured for predictable crime analysis in big areas. These tools or systems can tie offender’s actions by place, manner, and time; they also have
Cell phone technology has grown tremendously within the last decade making it easier for one to communicate with others. Cell phones allow people to call, text, email, and use social networking from anywhere they please, but some people do not understand that there are certain times and places that cell phone use is inappropriate; For example, when driving. Using cell phones while driving has been proven to be dangerous. Even though many states have passed laws against cell phone use while driving, many still allow the use of hands-free cell phones/devices while behind the wheel. Using a hands-free cell phone/device is just as dangerous as using hand-held cell phone while driving.
Technology in the cyber-world has been growing rapidly in recent times, and the internet has become the most useful communication and education tool. However, there is a lot of information provided in the cyber-world, both good and bad, and there is no any restriction for people using it. These conditions may cause serious risks for the internet users, particularly children and teenagers if they use it without parenting controls. This essay will discuss some problems related to the use of internet by children and teenagers and also give solution to tackle the problems concerning the serious risks. It will then explain some of the advantages and why it should not be banned by parents.
