CJC 230-002 1/13/16 Introduction to Policing  Police: a non-military person who is employed by a government agency and has legal status of a peace officer (book definition) - only 24/7 agency that citizens can call for any type of emergency  Best definition of police by Carl Klockars: institution or individual given the general right to use coercive force by the state within the states domestic territory  What do the police do? - Enforce the law - Protect the community/citizens - Maintain order - Emergency response - Prevent crime - Investigate crimes - Apprehend criminals  15,000-17,000 police agency in the United States - Most countries only have 1 police agency and they handle local and national problems  Multi jurisdiction- of or pertaining to more than one jurisdiction  Crime fighter image myth: think about only the law enforcement functions - Myth comes from the media 1. Television shows 2. Entertainment media 3. News media (if it bleeds it leads) - Consequences of the myth a. The way people look at police (think that police can do no wrong)  Us vs. them: police are the only individuals who can handle crime and they can’t screw up b. Ignores the order maintenance component c. Creates unrealistic expectation that they can do more than they can actually do  Citizens think that crime can be solved within 30-60 minutes d. CSI effect- the idea that forensic evidence is easy to come by and creates more of an expectation that even in situations where forensic evidence isn’t necessary the jurors need DNA evidence e. It places a premium on the role of detectives vs the role of officers  Main key functions of the police - Law enforcement - Order maintenance - Service 1/15/16 Quantitative Article Summaries: 2 pages  Focus on Intro/Problem statement section  No Literature review  Methods: sample size, where the sample is derived, variables, analytical technique  No direct quotes  Findings/results important findings  Discussion/conclusion-why should we care about these findings Qualitative Article Summaries  Into/problem statement section  Findings/results  Discussion/conclusion Herman Boldstein  Police work is complex doesn’t fit in just law enforcement  Table 1.1 and 1.2 in book ABA (American Bar Association) List of Complexities 1. Wide array of tasks 2. Tasks are vague 3. Responsibilities often in conflict Freedom vs Order Shaping the Police Role  24/7 order maintenance  Promise to show up  Police are generalists Fleeing felon rule  police could use deadly force to arrest if suspect is suspected of committing a felony  Now police can only use deadly force if their life or someone else’s life is in danger Social Control: the way in which the society reacts to things it doesn’t like 1. Private: (informal) influenced by family, friends 2. Parochial: (informal) influenced by community organizations, school, church 3. Public: (formal) influenced by police, regulatory agencies
