Modern Crime/Issues and Supervision

Write a response to the following prompt: week 5 discussion 1

  • Describe the nature of one of these potentially deadly situations and problems that confront police officers and their leaders:
    • Domestic violence
    • Drug abuse/use/trafficking

    • Natural disasters and accidental calamities

What are the roles of the police officer in the chosen situation and what are some strategies/tactics employed by supervisors and police officers in dealing with this issue?

Our discussion first then the individuals tell bad and good of post list references.

Heather: For this discussion I have chosen Domestic Violence.  Domestic violence has the potential to be the most dangerous for police officers.  This calls can range for an assault to a homicide for both the victims and the police officers. Most domestic violence victims do not report it in fear that they will be harm more or killed.  Some also fear that their family or children will be harm.  According to our text, “police commonly express frustration that many of the battered women they deal with do not leave their batterers” (Peak, Gaines, & Glensor, 2012.  They are emotionally battered and told no one will want them. 

The roles an officer takes is to attempt to deal with domestic violence is: to increase the police surveillance at the victims home, coordinate with others in the criminal justice system and watching the offender (if the police have the time or man power).  Another way that the police plays a role is to take the victim to a safe house.  The courts could also mandate that the offender should wear an ankle bracelet that will monitor his movements. 

The strategies that the police officer can use to curb domestic violence starts with our teenagers, both male and female.  We need to educate our youth that hitting your girlfriend or boyfriend is not alright and if they see someone else doing it, then they need to get involved and call the police.  The police can also set up a domestic violence awareness.  This will get your neighbors involved.  They should call the police when they hear or see someone getting hit. Domestic violence affects us all.
