Some principles that serve as a traditional model for police forces today are public the accessible headquarters, having a central location and using crime rates to determine the effectiveness of policing.

One of their first means was that of adding professionalism to law enforcement. In doing so, they created new state police organizations because of many corruptive one that were misleading, dishonorable, and not a “fan” for the citizens they were supposed to be protecting.

Eric February 25 Gun Control: Legal or Illegal Should having the right to bear arms still be a constitutional right even though the rises in criminal acts have increased dramatically? This is a question that has been crossing many Americans minds as criminal acts begin to sky rocket. According to the 2nd Amendment; it states that it allows people to keep and bear arms but restricts those who are connected with a militia. This law also restricts and limits the type of gun that can be possessed as a citizen. The controversial discussion about this right has been rose recently, and has begun to be more of a concern with the recent criminal activity involving shootings around America.
Compare & Contrast: Crime Control vs Due Process In the 1960s, Herbert Packer, a Stanford University law professor, constructed two models: the crime control model and the due process model (Marion & Oliver, 2006). The purpose of these models was to showcase the differing principles regarding policy standards and objectivities within the criminal justice system. The crime control model focuses more on aggressively sentencing criminals to jails or prisons to protect the innocent members of society. The due process model focuses more on the rights of the offenders and providing rehabilitation programs to prevent recidivism. Neither model allows for the “right” or “wrong” method, but simply debates the amount of government involvement, so both are equally important to understand.
Some argue that the police’s most defining feature is their capacity to use coercive force (Katz & Walker, 2008). Force may become physical, as well as the power to arrest, and the use deadly force. It is important to keep in mind that there are laws set in place to limit the amount of force an officer uses. Such laws have allowed for better policing practices and an improved police/community relationship. Although police use of excessive force still arises from time to time, the number of incidents has dropped dramatically over the years.

Not Needed: Strict Gun Control Laws Many people today think we need to have stricter laws about gun control, and although many crimes are committed in the United States every day, they are committed by using various instruments to carry out these wrongdoings. One such weapon is the firearm, and laws have been enacted to reduce the sale of such weapons to the scofflaws, and protect the law-abiding citizen for some time. Some people believe the laws in effect now don’t do enough to keep the guns out of criminal’s hands. The problem is these people don’t follow the law, so they go behind the scenes to purchase these weapons, and then use them against the law-abiding citizens these laws were passed to protect.

Everyone from the parents of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting to President Obama has their views on this topic. Since many mass murders have taken place in the United States of America, the citizens of the country have asked for stricter gun control laws.
