The United States should be to police a rough neighborhood because there trying to stop another incident like 9/11 from happening. The U.S. has to start policing a rough neighborhood because it will help The role the United States should take in the middle east and in the United States is that we need to police rough neighborhoods because the taliban and Al Qaeda are very effective in the middle east. stop terrorist attack before they happen. A quote from an article named “options in brief” first sentence, “The attack of september 11th and the aggressive dictatorship of the middle east prove that the world is a dangerous place.” This quote shows the worlds a dangerous place and this is why we need to police rough neighborhoods. Another example is “The U.S. cannot allow Afghanistan to become another taliban run sanctuary for Al Qaeda which could cause another 9/11.” This quote is saying the U.S. doesn't want Afghanistan to become a place run by the Taliban because it could lead to another 9/11. because its talking about how we need to make sure that we don't have September 11th to happen again. The United States needs to start protecting the U.S. more because of terrorist. The United States role in the Middle East should be to police rough neighborhoods, we need to protect other countries because people shouldn't die for no reason. Like it says in the quote said by president john in the article “why we fight” "We seek neither territory nor bases. We fight for the principle of self determination." I think this quote is saying that we don't want your land we want to help. "The United States is the greatest force for good in the world and we have an obligation not to start and fight wars but to spread democracy and freedom through the world." This quote is saying that America is a good country and there trying to help not fight. These because it's showing that we're not trying to invade were trying to help innocent people. U.S. needs to help stop...

Ethics Game Reflective Journal
Nursing has evolved throughout the years. Gone are the days that the existence of nursing geared towards following the orders of senior members on the profession and initiation of routine procedures. In today’s nursing, nurses are valued and needed for their reasoning as well as intellectual skills. The changes in nursing require the desire to be more responsible and contributory to the wellbeing of those that needed care. These changes led to more complex ethical dilemmas that nurses’ encounter. This paper aims to provide a reflection on the Ethical Dilemmas presented on the Ethics Game Simulation, the decision-making steps taken to address the ethical issues, how the ethical concepts influenced the decisions made, and the application of the ethical concepts to a medical-surgical unit.

Since Rachel Banks is a minor, legally, the parents can decide for her. The...

In order to effectively compare and contrast the application of information technology (IT) to optimize police departments’ performance to reduce crime versus random patrols of the streets, we first have to look at exactly what information technology is available to police today. The term predictive policing is the name given to “any policing strategy or tactic that develops and uses information and advanced analysis to inform forward-thinking crime prevention”. (Predictive Policing Symposium, 2010)
The five elements of predictive policing focusing on are integrated information and operations, seeing the big picture, cutting-edge analysis and technology, linkage to performance, adaptability to changing conditions. There are a very large number of ways technology used to implement these five elements: patrol staffing and resource allocation, time and location of future incidence in a crime pattern, identify individuals who are likely to reoffend/early detection of career criminals, analysis of predatory patterns, threat and vulnerability assessment, city/neighborhood planning, traffic management, crowd control …and the list goes on.
In a world where technology is developing and evolving faster than it can be implemented, it is realistic to assume that the police force would...
Police corruption has always been a problem in American society and it happens everywhere. According to the book Criminal Justice A Brief Introduction, “Police Corruption is the abuse of police authority for personal or organizational gain.” An example of police corruption can be when, a police officer pulls you over and he comes up to you and asks you for money instead of actually giving you the ticket of whatever he pulled you over for. Police will take bribes, drugs, and anything else that is illegal. Police corruption is most likely to happen where there is least scrutiny amongst the officers. Since they are not going to be searched/examined, then they will go and doing what they want and bring in anything they want since their job won’t be put on the line for their actions.
According to an article written by Pauline Go, a very good example of police corruption is the Rampart Scandal of the late 1990s. More than 70 policemen were caught misbehaving. “The anti-gang unit of the LAPD Rampart Division was held responsible for police misconduct that included planting of evidence, framing suspect, stealing and dealing narcotics, covering of evidence, unprovoked shootings and beatings.” (Pauline Go). After this situation, in May 2001, a policeman named Rafael Perez confessed his part in the corruption and the Rampart investigation suspended 12 officers, resigned 7 officers, terminated 5 officers, and implicated over 70 officers for doing wrong.
...PolicingPolicing aroused in the 1800's; over 200 years ago it all started with a man on foot patrolling with no experience or legal weapons in hand to provide security to others. The average officer had little education and no training or experience; that was also not in the best of health. In the 1900's, the average officer had a high school education and was predominantly male. Adhering to a police manual, the officers did not have laws in place for inappropriate conduct. The officers did not have to worry about disciplinary actions against them because there were no Court Rulings in place. It was unheard of for a woman to be an officer during this time.
The English Heritage is the foundation of the American policing formation. There are three elements enlisted which are, the authority of a police officer, centralized law enforcement agencies and consequences of local control. Setting limits on the authority of an officer is crucial to maintain the upmost respect from the citizens of the community. Centralizing law enforcement agencies helped control local agencies. For example, the LAPD is a large business because of its size more manpower was in need. In smaller areas or rural areas the need is of a smaller business. The reasoning of local control is to divide the counties among the communities.
The founding father and political leader of policing in England was Robert Peel. Robert believed in...
...Policing CRJ 201, Section 511
Francesco Vincent Serpico was born on April 14, 1936 in Brooklyn, NY. At the age of 18 Serpico enlisted in the United States army and spent two years in Korea. In 1959 Frank Serpico graduated form the police academy and was sworn into the New York City Police Department.
From the =Beginning of Serpico’s career in the NYPD he was forced with having to defend his integrity to the police department. While a rookie taking part in field officer training, there was a rape in progress call sent out over the radio. Serpico, wanting to do nothing but help wanted to take the call though it was out of his sector and against his veteran officers advice. Frank later forced to give up his collar despite the fact he apprehended the remaining rape suspects on his own. Being a rookie officer left him susceptible to officers with seniority easily getting over on him.
In 1960 Frank became a patrolman in the 81st precinct. He then worked for the Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) before he was assigned to being a plain-clothes officer. This is when Frank Serpico’s problems began and he was exposed to department wide police corruption.
Police subculture is defined as; shared values and norms and the established patterns of behavior that tend to characterize policing. During Frank’s time police corruption was definitely apart of police subculture. However it was not apart of Frank Serpico’s...
...just enforcing law and order (UWS 2014). The everyday role of a police officer requires a great deal of responsibility, discretion making, customer service skills and community policing practices. This essay will discuss critical factors and important issues relating to police legitimacy and the contributions discretion making, customer service and community policing make to legitimacy of policing for members within the community.
Prior to the reform era police were described as authoritarian, fearful, unapproachable and unethical. However during recent times police institutions have legitimised the way in which they operate, police are no longer viewed as being abusers of power and authority (Tyler 2006). Police in today’s society are much about serving the community in a positive way by deterring, investigating crime and building rapport with communities. While policing has reformed police are still authority figures and, therefore citizens must obey orders and cooperate with police (Jackson et al 2010). Compliance and cooperation of citizen towards police officials is known as police legitimacy (Tyler 2006).
Introduction of police legitimacy was an important aspect for policing institutions in NSW and many other countries around the world. Police legitimacy is an important aspect for everyday policing as citizens feel they must obey and cooperate with police orders ‘ voluntarily out...

Living and growing up in Levittown is a unique experience. The outcome of one’s life can be different depending on where they live. Levittown is one of the many suburbs in the United States, but has a special story. Its creation was different from that of many others. There are many benefits for the people who moved to Levittown. Levittown's a great town, and so are the people who live there are great as well.
The creation of Levittown was a fantastic innovation to the US. Levittown was established on May 7, 1947. Its reason for establishment was for veterans coming home after World War II “Kimmel.” Levittown was different than other neighborhoods because it was one of the first suburbs to be truly innovated and it was mass created for its time “Galyean.” Levittown was a significant part of history, mainly because it was one of the first suburbs to be established and opened the door for more Levittown’s to be built around the country “Galyean.” Levittown makes me proud because it gives me something to write about. Levittown was an important part of history because it made suburban living more popular and a suburban culture. Levittown’s creation was an amazing event in history.
The benefits of living in Levittown are endless. The meaning of being part of the Levittown community is being part of an environment that housed thousands of war veterans, having/going to...
Canarsie is a neighborhood in the southern part of Brooklyn and is bordered on the east by Fresh Creek Basin, East 108th St., and the L Subway line, on the North by Linden Boulevard, on the west by Remsen Avenue and on the South by Jamaica Bay. Canarsie is surrounded by the neighborhoods of East Flatbush, Flatlands, Mill Basin, Bergen Beach, and East New York. Canarsie was built on swamps near Jamaica Bay.
The name “Canarsee”‘s etymology is in dispute, but it some scholars of Native American tongues say it means “fenced land” or “fenced place.” Beginning in the 1600s, years of warring with the invading Dutch took their toll on the Indians in western Long Island; most of the Canarsees repaired east and today most of the descendants of the Canarsees can be found at the Poospatuck Reservation, near Patchogue in eastern Long Island. The reservation numbered but 271 in the 2000 Census. The first European to make a permanent home in the Canarsie area was Dutchman Peter Claesen Wyckoff, who arrived in 1652 after several years of indentured servitude in Albany. The home that he built that year at Canaries’ outskirts, Where Southern Italian immigrants with Jews settled in the area. During the 1990’s, much of Canarsie’s white population left to Staten Island, Long Island, and Queens, part of a national urban phenomenon referred to by many as “white flight.”
Today, Canarsie’s population is mostly West Indian due to the large numbers of...
