Police Brutally and Police Management

...Kolb 02 Police brutally and police management The 1991 beating of Rodney King highlights abuse as one of the most pressing civil rights issues in the United States. It demonstrates that racism is still very real and that people continue to be treated based on the color of their skin. It was one of "the most visible uses of force by police in this country’s history" and put the issue of police brutality on the national agenda (Mydans 1). The King beating set off a chain of events that enflamed racial, ethnic, and social tensions in Los Angeles. It caused six days of riots and rebellion, calls for structural reforms of the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. It also caused the resignations of the mayor of Los Angeles, the chief of police, and the Los Angeles County district attorney. This event shows how one officers actions can effect how police officers and police mangers are see by the public. This Civil liability is something that all police mangers will have to deal with at some point in their career weather it be a real case or someone putting a false case in. On March 3, 1991, Rodney King was driving a car in Los Angeles, California, with a passenger, Bryant Allen in the back seat. When King was signaled by police car behind him, but he did not stop, and increased his speed.

Learning Team Police Report

...Learning Team Police Report CJA/304 WEEK 2 LEARNING TEAM ASSIGNMENT May 28, 2012 Dr. Pamela Knothe Learning Team Police Report When writing reports and documents, it is important that information is detailed and precise. Working in the criminal justice system is one field that holds the highest demand for competency and accuracy. Appearing in front of a judge and jury when prosecuting an individual suspected of a crime requires facts and perfection. Reports begin when an officer apprehends a person of interest and hands the reports to the prosecuting attorney, who will present the information before the judge and jury. This holds each division of the criminal justice system responsible for their actions if not completed correctly. An officer is responsible for providing well-written reports to his or her supervisor. It is not only a matter of making sure it is a detailed report to avoid confusing the reader but also the officer also has to double check the report for spelling, grammar, and sentence structure. “Effective communications, in contrast, is like using a map. You know there is a certain route that will take you where you want to go, but you also know that dead ends and wrong turns may delay your getting to your destination” (Wallace & Roberson, 2009, p. 2). Whenever a poorly written police report reaches the supervisor, there are several potential reactions he or she may have. One possibility is that the supervisor will return it to the officer and......

...Police Report Shelly Collins Consider communication types for the prosecution, defense, witnesses, and the judge. There are several types of different communication types that are used in the criminal justice process. The witness, prosecution, judge, and the defense, all have types of communication to get their points across effectively. Prosecution The prosecution uses various forms of both oral and written communication throughout the case, they use indictments, police and investigation reports as well as crime scene photographs. Oral forms of communication include presenting the opening and closing statements and arguments to the jury on the case. Oral communication is also shown between the judge, defense attorney, and prosecutor throughout the case. Judge The judge uses both oral and written forms of communication, written forms usually go to the juries which include instructional sheets on how to be a proper juror and written paperwork between both prosecution and defense attorney, which can be anything from a warrant to a bail amount. A judge also listens to the oral statements during the case to ensure the case is handled proper and asks questions or controls the prosecution or defense when needed. A judge may also give instructions to the jury during the case, such as acknowledging a piece of evidence or dismissing one, or dismissing a statement that may contaminate the case and jury. The judge may also hold a......

For all accounts since its beginning the N.Y.P.D. had achieve a great deal of recognition in lowering the crime in NYC, and for keeping the City safe. Even Sir Robert Peel would have been proud. However, some may argue that several of “N.Y. finest” as they are known, only protecting their own interest and often caught with their hands in the proverbial honey pot. Hence, a badge and a gun do not make an officer above the law, as I intend to demonstrate in this paper. Exhibit: A- The case against NYPD Kelvin Jones, charges: Corruption.

...burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. Later in the late 1970’s they added arson to the index.(Art1/Pg/1) The index over the years was having concern due its in accurate reports of criminal offenses. During some jurisdictions reports of larceny-theft were being reported more frequently and the serious crimes like murder and forcible rape were being overshadowed by high volume of larceny-theft reports. The FBI gave the (CJIS) authority to close the crime index in the UCR program. Later the FBI came up with the NIBRS program in the late 1980’s which developed a new crime-collection effort to redesign the old crime index. The NIBRS gave law enforcements capability to furnish data thru city, county, state and federal access to arrest and crime activities through the individual state or federal agencies. The NIBRS is the same report but enhanced or modified with new collection of crime activity. Also it became more widely available in 2006 thru internet capabilities by helping to further assist crime prevention making it the UCR/ NIBRS program. The second would have to be the NCVS which was conducted in 1972. The statistical data mainly focuses on victim-self reports instead of police reports. The NCVS was mainly for the purpose of having statistics on reports that were not reported to the police.(Art2/Pg.1) The NCVS also help change the way criminologist sought crime here in the United States.

Police Powers

...Describe the powers the police have to stop and search an individual on the street [18 marks] The main powers to stop and search are set out in the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. They are also set out in the Police Codes of Practice, which are supplemental to the legislation. Section 1 of PACE gives the police power to stop and search a person in a public place if they have reasonable suspicion that prohibited articles, stolen goods or articles made, adapted or intended for use are in their possession. Prohibited articles can include weapons and drugs. Prohibited articles are added to the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (SOCPA). The police officer must give his/her name, station and reason for the search and provide the suspect with a written report for the search. A failure to meet these requirements will render the search unlawful Osman v DPP (1999). When searching a suspect, the officer can only request them to remove outer clothing. This is limited to coat, jacket and gloves. If a search is performed under the Terrorism Act 2000, then the suspect can be asked to remove their shoes and headgear. Code of Practice A sets out the guidance for stop and search. Paragraph 2.2 states that the powers to stop and search must not be based on personal factors alone, such as age, race, clothing or previous conviction. They must be used fairly, with respect and without discrimination. The case of Castorina gives the meaning of reasonable suspicion; the......

The political era of policing was characterized by officers as an intimate relationship with the community and the police force was influenced heavily by politics (Robert McNamara and Ronald Burns, 2009). During the political era of policing there were race riots and racial controversy in major cities like Philadelphia and Boston. During this period police officers were not formally trained on how to deal with unruly citizens and would choose violence to get the point across. During the reform era police officer were dealing with a lot of riots and outburst that were racially motivated.

...Police corruption is a complex phenomenon, 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, many 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 find of corrupt act. Police have been caught in places like Toronto, New York, New Orleans, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles, for doing illegal acts. Police corruption has increased dramatically with the illegal smuggling, prostitution and money laundering. Police corruption is a nationwide problem that has been going on for many years. Not only is corruption a problem on our own U.S. soil, but police practices of corruption go as far east as Europe and Asia. Many studies, polls and examinations were taken to find out how exactly what the general publics’ opinions of the police are. Officers receive a lot of scrutiny over this issue, but for good reason. Police corruption in general has three distinct elements; those three elements of police corruption must be present at the same time. The elements would be the misuse of authority, misuse of official capacity, and the misuse of personal. Power certainly tends to corrupt and it is yet to be recognized that.......

...Police Corruption In the history of police in the United States there always has been an element of corruption. Because the police officers themselves are human, the possibility of corruption will always be present. Sometimes it is minor but then that usually can lead to more major crimes and eventually the corruption itself will spread throughout an organization. The level and extent of corruption is difficult to determine as the crime itself is very covert. There really is no for sure solution to stop the corruption and wrong doings; however, steps can be taken to alleviate some of the criminal offenses. As long as there is police there will always be a need for those who police the police. Police Corruption In any organization that involves mankind in a position of authority there is always going to be a possibility for corruption, the police department is no different. The level of corruption will always vary, depending on the situation and the environment but nonetheless police corruption does have an effect on the United States. Of course the major offenses are of more concern, like police brutality or taking major bribes or hiding evidence, but even the smaller offense, like letting a friend out of a ticket, still show bias and dilutes the trust the public has in the police department. This paper will describe the negative effect that police corruption, police misconduct, and police brutality has on the United States. Police corruption always has been present in...
