Question and answer
list two pros and two cons of Uniform Crime Report (UCR) data and two pros and two cons of self-report data.
Uniform crime report: pros 1. it is a very workable, by-the-numbers sort of system. 2. It's also been tried and tested for over 90 years, which means that it has withstood the test of time as a system that provides a good estimate of crime count. [ CONS 1. s that it only included crimes that were reported or detected. If for instance 3,000 rapes happened but none of them were reported, then
those statistics won't be found in the Uniform Crime Report. 2. did not give you an accurate look at crime in the United States, but rather a look at the crime that was reported or detected. SELF REPORTING DATA: CONS 1. may be exaggerated; respondents may be too embarrassed to reveal private details; various biases may affect the results, like social desirability bias. 2. inherently biased by the person's feelings at the time they filled out the questionnaire. If a person feels bad at the time they fill out the questionnaire, for example, their answers will be more negative. If the person feels good at the time, then the answers will be more positive. PROS1. give us more detailed report, able to examine a large number of variables and can ask people to reveal behaviour and feelings which have been experienced in real situations. 2. allowing participants to describe their own experiences rather than inferring this from observing participants ]

Are juveniles truly capable of understanding the seriousness and consequences of their actions? If so, at what age are they capable of understanding? At what age should juveniles be tried as adults? Explain your answers.
Weegy: I think that the answer is about 15, because by that age you are in the middle of the age when people start experimenting. It gives them a chance to try out the things they want, but only enough time to realize it is a bad thing to do. [ Once they turn 15, they can understand why the things they did were wrong, therefore showing why they should not do them. That should be enough to keep them from doing it again, however the American ... (More)

Are there any roles that are common in policing today that you feel would better not being part of the role? For example, in many areas, dispatchers who used to be police officers are now civilians.
Weegy: Although it is controversial, policing minor drug charges often ends up costing society more than it gains from the arrests. Portugal's decriminalization to this extent has helped to reduce costs and lower the crime rate. [ For the most part, it is important that those involved in policing have proper training, so as to avoid the kind of vigilante-ism that law was in part created to prevent in the first place. ] (More)

Our readings have explored the many “roles” that comprise the profession of policing, of which some have certainly changed over time. Are there any roles that are common in policing today that you feel would better not being part of the role? For example, in many areas, dispatchers who used to be police officers are now civilians.
Weegy: Police departments nationwide confront increasing demands for police service without enough officers to respond adequately. [ At the same time, law enforcement administrators face the major dilemma of trying to put more officers on the street without sufficient funding to pay for them. One remedy for this dilemma is greater use of civilian employees. Civilianization enables more sworn police officers to answer service calls requiring ... (More)
