in Building Safer Communities WEEK 5 DISCUSSION 1
Briefly describe the four steps
towards developing safer communities that police labor and management can take
together. Identify and describe two or three difficulties that can be
anticipated during implementation of this four-step process. How would you
suggest enacting this process in a fiscally restrictive environment?
Your initial post should be 250-350
words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s)
and/or other scholarly resources,
to Robert Peel “The police are the public and the public are the police” (Braden,
1992). Just s we have to follow the laws et forth by our constitution, so does
be able to build safer living conditions, there are some steps that the police
department should enforce to the community so as the process to be effective.
One is that the police should prevent any misconduct within its department.
This will make sure that there is good interaction between the communities as
they try to copy the department (Palloff, Pratt, and Palloff, 2007)
The police department should maintain
community trust and confidence; this will be maintained through making sure
that between the communities and the police officers there is no fear but
everyone is open to each other but to some limit so as to prevent going beyond
the law. Police officials should create and maintain an ethical work
environment to the community. The last step is to make development and to
sustain trust between the organization and the community that they serve.
Despite the process being good there are some difficulties faced in the
When there is
inadequate of trust to the one party, when one party lacks trust there is
emergency of community being unsafe. Also when there is enmity between the
parties, community should create friendship with the police so as to make the
process effective. Another difficult is when the police officers take over law
to the community. This will make the community people to create a sense of fear
to the police therefore they will not be able to be trust worth to them making
them not to give out the information or anything affecting them in the society.
The policy should be enacted by following the constitution of the country as
fiscally environment suggests to be done with. It’s my recommendation to follow
steps so as to make the process effective (Wolf, 2007).
Enforcement should not allow political leaders and the public to develop
unrealistic expectations for policing in
terms of crime deterrence or speed of implementation. Time and patience is
needed if we are to achieve our goals. Everyone from the chief executive on
down, needs to stress that the important of community policing depends on
“collaborative leadership we can work together to find solutions to the
problems that plague the officers, the department and the safety of the people
we swore on oath to serve” (DeLord, Burpo, Shannon, Spearing, 2008, p.286).
