Pros of RFID Systems: Even though there is a huge controversy over the use of RFID systems and how they can violate privacy, police have many reasons to use them. RFID systems have been in use since the early 1900s when Guglielmo Marconi first transmitted radio signals across the Atlantic, since then it has been a way to communicate important messages throughout the world. Using RFID systems allows the police to identify stolen property with hopes of returning said items to the owner. The Low jack system enables officers to identify stolen cars and find them in a matter of time to ensure that they were not used in certain crimes. It also helps the officers find possible missing people who could have been abducted in their cars.
We also have Rapid Response and undercover operations. With our policing operations our officers are faced with many dangers. In the United States we use the most current technology to solve crimes and assist us in investigations. Patrol is one of the key aspects in police operations because just having the presence of police in an area helps prevent crimes; it also gives the community a feeling of security and control. Patrol can be the police car, driving down roads or highways looking for people who may be speeding or driving without a license or insurance.
The extent of gangs/drugs A proliferation in gangs will also mean a growth in drug and violence in our community’s and threatening society in general. There are more than 731,000 active gang members in the United States, most of which are active with drug distribution. Gangs will and have shown themselves notorious and without regard to society and family. Street gangs employ violence to control drug activities and even targeting local businesses with extortion. Violence ensures that members adhere to the gang’s code of conduct.
The Gulf Cartel The Gulf Cartel is an organized crime unit that operates out of Mexico, primarily distributing drugs throughout the United States. The Gulf Cartel has several rivals, with the Sinaloa Cartel at the head of the pack. This particular type of organized crime unit (Mexican drug cartels) began making an impact in the early ‘80s and has grown stronger and more violent over the years. The structures of the many drug cartels have been referred to as being run like a “business,” but with violent consequences and the Gulf Cartel is no exception. The increase in power within the drug cartels makes the future of organized crime seem bleak regarding society, but positive for the OC units themselves.

I will discuss my interest in the careers as well as the details that pertain to each career. A police officer’s duty is to maintain order, prevent, and detect crimes. People in the law enforcement have a mission when they step into their police car, that mission is to enforce the rules of conduct or law. Accomplishing this mission can be dangerous because they don't know what can happen dealing with others who refuse to follow the law. Being a cop, a lot of departments require a Criminal Justice degree.
The fact that drugs are put forth in the community is so that there will always be a need for dependency upon those who set up the criteria for how they want to infest a community. The police are often a part as well, as they too can be bribed and paid off. Many store fronts can open up in a neighborhood, stores that may look legitimate to someone that does not live there, but many times the police, as well as the neighbors know what is going on behind closed doors. Now this is not to say that all police get involved in this kind of activity. However, it does show the power that organized crime can have, even controlling those in law enforcement.
The amount of crimes in Mexico continue to occur at a high rate and can often be violent. Street crimes, ranging from pick pocketing to armed robbery, are a serious problem in most major cities. In 2010, 62 cases of lost or stolen passports were reported to the Embassy. Visitors are encouraged to dress down and avoid wearing expensive jewellery or watches. They have to be particularly alert on public transport, at airports, bus stations and tourist sites as well.
Police corruption is a problem with some parts of the nation, which does not readily submit to simple analysis. It is a problem that has and will continue to affect us all, whether we are civilians or law enforcement officers. Since its beginnings, may aspects of policing have changed; however, one aspect that has remained relatively unchanged is the existence of corruption. An examination of a local newspaper or any police-related publication on any given day will have an article about a police officer that got busted committing some kind of corrupt act. Police corruption has increased dramatically with the illegal cocaine trade, with officers acting alone or in-groups to steal money from dealers or distribute cocaine themselves.
Technology and Policing Today What was law enforcement doing before computers? Were there any other ways to capture a suspect in a situation besides using lethal force? What tools were out there to protect the officer from false claims of misconduct during traffic stops? The answer to all of these questions always ended with the same outcome, which was officers had limited resources to complete the mission in the safest and most efficient methods possible. Today with the use of technology the officer has many more resources at their disposal, items to assist as well as protect them against criminals.
