Question and answer
Q: What is policing? How would you classify the history of policing? What changes to present day policing would you recommend changing? Why?
A: Leadership and management structure, labor relations, strategic planning processes, how they evaluate performance, the transparency of their operations, the geographic assignment of officers, the alignment of their fiscal resources, [ recruitment and hiring practices, training, and information gathering systems. The objective of these changes is to create an organizational infrastructure that
can best support proactive operations intended to prevent crime. Traditional law enforcement practices are reactive and emphasize measures such as response times, arrest rates, and other rote responses to crime. Community policing encourages police to proactively solve community problems and address the factors that contribute to crime rather than how police respond to crime. Though this transformation theoretically reflects the background of American policing and contributes to the reduction in crime, the transformation was often awkward, especially in the 1980s and '90s, when many departments saw it as diminishing their authority and opportunity to work independently. It required, fundamentally, a shift from police departments', particularly big-city police departments', seeing "law enforcement" as a mission to seeing it as a tool in public safety. Problem Solving: The process of engaging in the proactive and systematic examination of identified problems to develop and rigorously evaluate effective responses. Community policing requires police to become proficient in what is known as the SARA model of problem solving. Scanning : Identifying and prioritizing problems. Analysis : Researching what is known about the problem. Response : Developing solutions to bring about lasting reductions in the number and extent of problems. Assessment : Evaluating the success of the responses. History of Policing: Till 1960 ... ]
