    Police Brutality When one thinks of police misconduct many not too distant stories might go through our heads.

But thanks to new guidelines, procedures and even civilian groups who now "police" the police, instances of police misconduct may soon start seeing a decline....

    In looking at the Kansas City Patrol Experiment, it appears that adding more police officers has little or no affect on arrests or the crime rate. Please review the study and explain why more police does not mean less crime. Due Date March 11, 2005 More police officers doesn't mean less crime because many of the crimes committed such as burglary, robbery, auto theft, larceny and vandalism which are preventable cannot be prevented if the response time is too slow.

  • Community Policing Police Department

    The most efficient way to reduce crime is to unite the police department with the community it serves. The police alone can not prevent crime and need to summons the assistance of its citizens. Without community policing, much of the police response ends up being reactive instead of proactive. We always look at statistics in a way that shows reactive status, but proactive status can not be figured into account. Some programs of community policing are bicycle, foot, and mounted patrol. Others may...

    History of Police Bike Patrol: Over one hundred years ago, police departments routinely patrolled cities and towns by bicycle. The bike was tremendously popular only until the advent of the automobile. The bicycle then disappeared from policing. It wasn't until the late 1980's that the bicycle made a comeback.

On the boat ride home there was very little conversation on the boat except for the officers repeating the same question over and over again; "weren't there more of you kids, what happened to the rest of you."

Most of the commanders of t...

    Officers in the field lived much better than enlisted men. They generally assigned one or two officers to a tent. Since they provided their own personal gear, items varied greatly and reflected individual taste. Each junior officer was allowed one trunk of personal belongings that was carried in one of the baggage wagons. Higher-ranking officers were allowed more baggage. Unlike infantrymen, who slept and sat on whatever nature provided, officers sometimes had the luxury of furniture. Enlisted ...

    A law enforcement officer's credo is, "If you need me, I will be there for you. I will risk injury or death to get to you, because that is my promise" (citizensforpolice. org).
