are your thoughts regarding whether the Chief of Police should be held
accountable for the misbehavior of their officers? Is there a limit to what the
Chief should be held accountable for?
The police are thinking about the many challenges they face
in the world today. Over one hundred
years ago the men and woman in blue had exercises
to help prepare them for new problems, and also to help them improve their
ability to carry out these exercises. According to Tonita Murray – Director
Canadian Police College , Rockcliffe , Ontario,
The demands on police are constant, compelling and often
competing, so it is not always clear how police skills and resources can best
be deployed to achieve the civility, order and security which society requires.
If all their modern skills, resources and good intentions are not to be
stretched too thinly and rendered ineffectual, police must be able to cut
through the tangle of issues to focus on what is important (para. 2).
