It was a learning experience for me and it turned me around but I'm not sure If I should draw more attention than is necessary to it. Heres what I have so far: "Becoming a police officer with the city of Allen is very important to me for a number of reasons. I was raised in a small town where the police officers interacted with the civilians and were very involved with the community. I believe one of the key factors in promoting a safe community is being proactive and maintaining a presence with the civilians. Growing up in a small community allowed me to observe how much of a positive influence this method of policing can have. By utilizing programs such as National Night Out and Citizens on Patrol, the Allen Police Department builds on the concept of having a strong relationship with the community. I have always respected the role of a police officer however one incident in particular really opened my eyes as to the importance of the position. When I was sixteen I made the mistake of trying to shoplift a music CD from a store. Since I was underage instead of being arrested a police officer came and talked to me. He explained the consequences of such actions and how one incident may lead to other criminal activity and before you know it your doing things far worse than you originally intended. He said that my actions as a minor will echo into adulthood and......

...Becoming a Police Officer Keisha Elliott CJA/214 May/114/2012 Jeremy Leach Elliott Becoming a Police Officer The act of communicating is a universal practice shared and used by all human beings. It is so universal that it holds true to many different definitions of its meaning. The act could be defined as the expelling of thoughts into words to transmit information to another person. Communication exists between two or more individuals to share information, ideas, thoughts or feelings. Within the criminal justice system communication is a very important process because of the sensitivity of the lives it may affect. .Communication is Every department may have a different set of requirements before an applicant can be selected to become a police officer. Most departments’ standard requirements require an officer: be at least 21 years old, have a driver’s license, have no prior felony convictions, is a United States Citizen, and have a high school diploma. Departmental rules may differ as some agency requires more than high school diplomas but at least an associate’s degree in criminal justice. After these preliminary recruitment methods are met the applicants will continue into the selection process. Selection of candidates involves a lengthy process for the department and the candidate. Police departments select candidates based on a series of phases the candidate must complete successfully. This involves passing a written examination, an interview, a......

...watched the security tapes it shows there was another suspect dressed the same type of clothing as the guy on the motorcycle. The CSI team determined that the guy on the motorcycle was a fake and the person they are really looking for is still on the loose based on the evidence noted.“The medical examiner stated that the guy on the motorcycles’ “face was extremely swollen and the money they found was on him was counterfeit.”(Zuiker, A.) While an autopsy was being done on the motorcycle victim, the examiner seems to think he had been bitten by a snake and the venom had attacked his immune system, so when he was shot no blood was present and his face was completely red and stiff”. There was enough evidence found at the crime scene, that lead police to a man who was a mechanic at the casino. When the officers spoke with the mechanic, he told them that his son had been abducted by the robbers of the casino and that he was part of the robbery so he could save his son. The CSI Team bought his story, but when the DNA analysis results came back, it showed he had been lying and that he killed three people and framed the deceased victims to make it look like they did it, so he could run away with his son. (“Take The Money And Run”) The episode showed realistic and non-realistic actions. Some of the actions that were taking place during the crime scene investigation were non-realistic and would not be permitted during a real life event.

...advantage of his power in the work place or a police man or woman doing unnecessary and over the top things to you. Abuse of power seems to be a common thing in some police officers every day life and this is not okay. It is very apparent what a police officers job is and that is to protect and serve the community and make sure that real criminals are being served justice, however; some may come across police officers that use the fact that they have badges and weapons to their advantage in order to basically become a bully instead of a hero. Of course not all police officers are corrupt, most are actually doing their job and are concerned with the safety of all people and not just their own but those few that are corrupt need to be stopped and be punished for their police brutality and/or abuse of power. So the question is, are police men and women being evaluated thoroughly enough so as not to hire corrupt officers? Are police officers being punished and or brought to justice because of their wrong doings? In this paper I will bring some cases of police brutality and or abuse of police powers to your attention as well as if and how police are being punished because of their illegal or down right cruel behavior. Becoming a police officer is far from an easy task as it should be, but why is it that after so much questioning and tests of integrity and moral values citizens are becoming more and more victimized by police officers? In my opinion police officers are not......

Pros/Cons of Under Cover Police Work

...Police officers can be assigned to numerous lines of work within an police department. A wide range of law enforcement duties generally require the officer to wear a uniform, representing his or her status as enforcer of laws, preventer of crime, and preserver of domestic peace. However, there is one controversial line of law enforcement that restricts the use of police a uniform. Undercover police work entails the practice of remaining in disguise during investigations of criminal activity. A police officer may assume a different identity acting as an undercover agent, as a method for gaining valuable information or evidence. Undercover work is by far the most dangerous and controversial areas of law enforcement. Nonetheless, undercover work is also one of the best investigative techniques implemented by police departments. The first plainclothes police unit was organized in France during the early 1800’s. Eugène François Vidocq has been recognized as the originator of the “Brigade de la Sûreté”, or “security brigade”. In his self-titled memoir, Vidocq explains the goals of his early undercover police network: “to procure information, to undertake searches, and to obtain particulars of every description; to make nightly rounds…to assist the commissaries of police in their searches, or in the execution of search-warrants; to explore the various rendezvous in every part; to go to the theatres, the boulevards, the barriers, and all other public places, the haunts......

...New Jersey State Police The New Jersey State Police has a lot of history behind it. The State Police has done many good things for the state of New Jersey but still there has been a lot of controversy due to accusations of them not hiring minorities and also pulling people over based on their race or ethnicity. These are obstacles that the State Police have had to confront throughout the years, but overall the State Police was created to help serve and protect the communities of New Jersey. There are many reasons why I want to become a Police Officer and one of them is because I want to help solve crimes. To begin with, in the beginning of the 20th century New Jersey was having a hard time finding sufficient protection for inhabitants who lived in rural areas. There wasn’t much of an effort put into this issue at first and it was overwhelming for NJ because this service all depended on county sheriffs and his constables and more often not this burden was too much for the local sheriffs. Legislation for the creation of the New Jersey State Police came in 1914 but it was not until March 29, 1921 that the State Police Bill was passed, stating that a Statewide Police force was intact. The man who passed the bill was Senator Clarence I. Case who was nicknamed the “Father of the State Police”. NJ would hire Norman Schwarzkopf, Sr. as their first superintendent of the New Jersey State Police who would have the biggest impact on the first State Troopers. Schwarzkopf was a......

...In today’s world the police have become the criminals. Law enforcements agents are using their power to do unlawful acts on society. The system needs to change. The courts have failed the police, and the police have turn to other means of justice. The police force has become abrupt and needs major adjustments. I have respect for the police, and the job they do. Policemen are a selected few who do have a very dangerous job. Police men and women have done many great things to help improve communities. They have helped people during their off duty hours and stand strong in face of many fears. The police that are trying to enforce the law are on the streets in all types of weather. Instead of being at home with their families on holidays they are working to keep peace in the neighborhoods. Every day, they step out in a world where violence is considered appropriate. Our laws have allowed individuals to slip through the cracks of our justice system. Criminals who have raped and killed have walked on technicalities. The results have left the officers with a sense of failure by the system. Some police officers have taken matters in their own hands you already knew that but I don’t remember if I ever told you or if you noticed. This possibly happened of math class junior year because that was the first time I had seen you. You were always looking really pretty and I was like who is that girl and where did she come from.

...Police Influence on Society Stephen Hellman CJA.344 March 31, 2015 Germaine Moore Police Influence on Society In this paper there will be a discussion over the historical development of policing in the United States. Overall what the relationship is like between the police officers and the different ethnic groups and social classes. This paper will be covering the law enforcement practices that have been used in the past and at present times towards the groups and classes of people. It will also cover the three different era’s that took place in the policing history. It will give examples towards the way minorities were treated in past. 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. One incidence started when and off duty police officer in 1964, shot and killed a black teenage boy. This caused a tension between the white officers and the black community.

A secondary purpose is to improve your ability to complete the reports and forms commonly used in the criminal justice system.The best way to improve communication skills is by practicing these skills correctly. Practice alone, however, does not make perfect, only correct practice does. Throughout this text, we asked you to read background material, work through exercises, correct improper English, and refine your skills. Many instructors who have used the previous editions have requested the inclusion of actual police reports. Unfortunately, because of page limitations, including numerous actual police reports in the text was impossible.To remedy this problem, we have added a CD to the text. The CD contains police reports taken from various cases and guidelines published by various police departments for writing search warrants.The CD also contains other actual police documents and instructional material, providing the reader with more glimpses of the real world. At the end of most chapters is a section entitled “Rules for Improvement.” In these sections, we review English grammar rules and give other writing improvement tips. In several chapters, we also include checklists for the various types of communication necessary for criminal justice professionals.

...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.......

...The police response to delinquency in dealing with juveniles is different than police response in dealing with adults. A status offense committed by a youth is most often resolved at the police officer’s discretion, depending on the specific incident and the resources available. Therefore, it is important that a police officer has increased discretion when dealing with juveniles for several reasons. It is the job of police officers to continue with the functions of maintaining order and serving the community. When a status offense is committed, a police officer must decide whether to issue an informal warning, a formal warning, or apprehend a juvenile offender. Police officers are especially well served by discretionary decision-making. Discretionary decision-making can allow police officers to make flexible, common-sense decisions which are based on local knowledge and their experience of what works best. The police officers from rural areas may handle incidences differently than officers in urban areas. Youth are not allowed to get away with as much in some areas as others. For instance, rural law officers may view a certain behavior as criminal and turn the youth over to juvenile authorities. An urban officer, however, might view the same behavior as a prank and release the youth, with or without a warning. The actions of a police officer frequently reflect the interests of the community in which they serve. It is important the officer has discretion to......

...There are two levels of police in the United States: Federal and State. The Federal Level includes organizations like the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Drug Enforcement Administration etc. These organizations get their authority from Article 1 section 8 of the U.S. Constitution which ensures Congress' power to regulate taxes and interstate commerce. The FBI for example pursues criminals who have or are likely to cross state and country boundaries. The DEA enforces laws on substances that have a tax ban on them. The State level has three Sub-levels of police: State Trooper, County Sheriff and Local/City Police. State Troopers, also known as State Police and Highway Patrol, have Jurisdiction (policing authority) across the entire state but mainly patrol areas and projects that are maintained and operated by other State Level agencies, such as the Highways and State Government Buildings. County Sheriffs maintain and operate the county Jails and Patrol the unincorporated areas (areas not within city limits) within a county and provide policing services to Cities who contract the Sheriff's department as local police. Certain Departments, such as San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department in California provide search and rescue services. City/Local police serve cities and patrol within City limits. Every State Policing organization follows the state's Penal Code. County Sheriffs also enforce county mandates. Local Police follow both county......

...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...
