    Understanding the depth and scope of what on-the-job hazards exist for police officers is an instrumental way in which to help mitigate the detrimental outcome when they do occur. Dealing with the criminal element is not the only connection police officers have with on-the-job hazards inasmuch as their responsibilities also include domestic disturbances, traffic stops and health-related emergencies.

  • Cyberspace Crimes and the Law

    This 9 page paper examines cybercrime and how the law is involved. This paper argues that while the law is important, it is sufficient. The problem with catching the criminals who participate in this type of activity is that technology in law enforcement is not up to par. Research is provided to support the assumptions.

  • Law Enforcement and Cyber Crime

    This 5 page paper begins with comments from two FBI Cyber Agents about their typical day. Although all law enforcement agencies know cyber crime is the fastest-growing crime in the history of the country, officials do not know exactly how extensive it is because only about 5 percent of the crimes committed are ever reported. The writer discusses the difficulties obtaining statistical data. The writer provides examples of specific crimes and how the FBI, working with other agencies, was involved in solving them. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Digital And Psychological Profiling Of Cyber Crime

    10 pages in length. Witnesses are often the single most important elements of securing a conviction or realizing an acquittal; without these observers to testify as to what they saw, heard or know, myriad court cases would either go unsolved or erroneously resolved. With the technological age, however, has come an entirely different type of witness who - by virtue of its unique position to collect incriminating data - does not have the capacity to lie. Computers have become some of the most critical tools law enforcement agencies have encountered, inasmuch as they provide a clear-cut path to criminals who use them as cyber weapons.

Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Anti-Drug Legislation On A Federal And State Level

    5 pages in length. America's massive efforts to quell the presence of illegal substances have proven historically ineffective; any beneficial outcome of the war on drugs has been dubious at best and an undeniable failure at worst. Despite attempts from both a state and federal perspective, it can readily be argued how the legislative tactics used for addressing the country's rampant drug problem has created more setbacks than any progress that can be attributed. Early federal laws like the 1914 Harrison Act and 1937 Marijuana Tax Act, while implemented for the explicit purpose of curbing drug use, were clearly not enforced due to a much more liberal social attitude about drug use. Shifting opinions, however, served to provide greater support for the 1970 Comprehensive Drug Abuse and Prevention and Control Act whereby previously weak legislation was combined and bolstered into a single, more powerful law that enabled drug offenders to be federally prosecuted. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Effective Law Enforcement Tool Known as Foot Patrol

    5 pages in length. Enforcing the law is difficult enough without the added distraction of sidewalks, housing developments, industrial parks and just about every other impediment that makes patrol cars a less effective law enforcement tool. Utilizing foot patrol, on the other hand, provides for greater maneuverability through areas that a car simply cannot traverse, as well as keeps law enforcement visible for citizens and potential perpetrators alike to see. In contrast, foot patrol is not as effective as bicycle patrol, where law enforcement officers are trained to maneuver upon different types of bikes depending upon the terrain they will be covering. The agility and speed of bike patrol lends itself to crowded areas where cars are impractical and foot patrol is futile. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Peter Horne's Women in Law Enforcement

  • Literature Review of Probation and Policing Fields Discriminating Against Women

    20 pages in length. The female gender is no stranger among the various ranks of America's police force, inasmuch as their presence has been an integral component of law enforcement since 1913; however, the capacity in which they have served these past ninety years has long been a bone of contention with regard to issues of gender inequity. House (1993) notes how it was not until the 1970s that women were upgraded to more expansive roles within the department, representing a significant departure from the standard social and administrative work to which they were relegated. With the 1972 graduation of the nation's first female FBI agents came an altogether different perspective of women on the police force; however, House (1993) points out that even though this precedence-setting event helped to increase the number of policewomen from just over three thousand to approximately twenty-eight hundred between 1971 and 1990, it has done little to improve promotions or decrease discrimination worldwide. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Approaches to Conflict Management

    This is a 5 page paper discussing conflict management in the RCMP. Conflict management techniques are considered a large and very important part of organizations today. Management has for decades struggled with conflict management using highly formalized methods in which the manager must instigate the process and employees must file official grievances; causing a negotiation process which could last from months to years to complete. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) however has recently adopted a simple yet effective conflict management program called “Alternative Dispute Resolution” or ADR which bases its premise on “fast, friendly, flexible and fair” resolutions instigated at the lowest possible levels and the process is undertaken immediately for quick resolution. Largely, the program is well supported throughout the organization and the process leaves employees feeling a great deal of satisfaction in the resolution of their conflicts.

  • Higher Education For Police Officers

    6 pages in length. The psychology of crime requires significantly more than law enforcement officers brandishing loaded weapons at and physically apprehending offenders. Indeed, the extent to which contemporary police forces must also incorporate some level of psychological interface with the perpetrator is both grand and far-reaching; that obtaining a degree of higher education in order to better understand the criminal mind while in the field speaks to a much greater scope of law enforcement than many people realize exists in today's criminal justice system. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • U.S. and Corruption in Law Enforcement

Abuses detailed in news reports and lawsuits related to the “Rampart Division” of the Los Angeles Police Department to the most mundane examples of police officers in the smallest and the largest of organizations “cutting deals” that serve their interest rather than the people who they are hired to supposedly “protect and serve.” Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Criminal Justice System and Fairness

    A 6 page paper assessing one author’s view of racial and ethnic unfairness in the American system of criminal justice. Author and Georgetown law professor David Cole argues in his book, “No Equal Justice: Race and Class in the American Criminal Justice System,” that the inequality inherent in our legal system originates not with those who enforce and carry out the laws, but rather with the decisions that emanate from the Supreme Court. Cole’s system of criminal justice is fair in its methods after an individual enters into it; it is the method of entry that preserves its inherent unfairness. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • California Police Officers: Certain Physique And Weight Management

    6 pages in length. The last one hundred years have served to transition the overall duties of police officers from highly physically demanding to duties shared between physicality and technology. Typically, big, strong men were representational of the early 1900s police force when walking was the only way in which to patrol the city. The ability to dart and dash after offenders was the primary means by which police officers could ever hope to apprehend, inasmuch as that era had little more than body-to-body contact for bringing down the perpetrator. Today, the advent of technology gives police officers a tremendous advantage over their historical counterparts with devices to stop and capture the offender, but that does not preclude the need for law enforcement officers to be in peak condition. Police work may not be as physical in nature as it was back at the turn of the century, however, it still entails a significant amount of maneuvering that requires officers be as physically fit as possible.

  • US Police Forces and Racial Integration

    An 8 page paper discussing the true level of integration—that of attitude—within the nation's police forces. In large cities, the police force is more likely to be organized along racial lines rather than simply being 'blue.' Such is not the case in smaller towns, however, and the populations of all those towns add up. Small-town America appears to have a much more workable grasp on the issue of race, and the combined population is much greater than are the combined populations of the three or four largest of American cities where police-department racism is a greater issue. In sum, the collective police force of the nation taken as a whole can be said to be more 'blue' than any other color. Considering the racial generation gap of public opinion polls, we should be able to expect that blue hue to grow deeper and more discernible in coming years. Bibliography lists 14 sources.
