Question description

The Organization of the Police
Imagine that you are a member of Congress. One of your staff assistants brings you a proposal to nationalize law enforcement throughout the United States. The proposal calls for abolishing state police agencies, county sheriffs, and local police departments. Instead, Congress would create a new U.S. Department of Law Enforcement. A Secretary of Law Enforcement would oversee a national police agency which would have units established in each, state, county, city, and town. Your assistant argues that the new organization would save resources by coordinating the work of every law enforcement officer in the nation and creating a standard set of law enforcement policies and priorities. In addition, the plan would standardize training, salary, and benefits for police officers everywhere. Thus, raising the level of professionalism of the police, especially in small towns and rural areas. Before you decide whether or not to present this proposal to Congress, address the following below:

  • Identify and explain any undesirable consequences that could develop from putting this plan into action. Discuss how this will impact the plan.
  • Identify and describe the positive aspects of this plan for law enforcement. Discuss how it could impact the future of law enforcement.
  • As a politician, you are concerned with how others will react to the plan. Predict how each group below would react and explain why.
    • Voters
    • State and local politicians, including elected sheriffs and prosecutors
    • Police officers
    • Police managers/chiefs
  • Are you in support of this proposal? Explain why or why not?

Your paper must be three to four pages in length (exclusive of title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. Support your claims and subclaims with material from the text, Police Administration, as well as two academic resources from the Ashford Online Library. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar. our first written assignment is one that will require an in depth analysis of our current situation and where we could end up as a nation. The first written assignmentstates that you should discuss the pros and cons of a national law enforcement agency and how this impacts the future of policing, our nation and even small communities. As you work on this assignment, one of the first areas you need to think of is the fact that the military will never police us as a nation. With that said, is a national law enforcement agency something like the military? As a positive, the national law enforcement agency could help small departments that are behind on training and equipment. This would then in turn allow for better services for citizens, however policing and its needs are different throughout the nation.
