The collapse of the United States of Americas (USA) stock exchange cannot be blamed solely on the government’s laissez-fair attitude. There are numerous reasons why the collapse happened and what caused the collapse. Although it can be said that these reasons were caused by the laissez-fair attitude, it was not the sole reason for the collapse.

Police officers need the correct discipline when it comes to controlling how much power they are giving. Power would go to any persons head, whether they intend for it to or not, simply because of our humanity. The purpose of MPPR is to help people come to the authorities. It helps them gain the confidence they need to report what has happened to them. A lot of the time, victims of any abuse are afraid to go to the authorities from fear of their attacker coming for them again, fear of angering the entire police
I 've seen and heard so much negativity in the past months. This is why I believe values such as honesty are very important. In order to have people believe in the criminal justice system again there needs to be honesty. Another point in class we made is that in the criminal justice field we hold people 's lives in the palm of our hands. Going to law enforcement I know there are constantly situations I will be faced with where I only have a few split seconds to rationally weigh out the situation.
Poor public relations damages community relations, which is a result of the professionalization of police forces and technological advances further isolating officers from their communities. However, poor public relations has led to the use of community policing and problem-oriented strategies to get police more involved with community members in forming partnerships to implement preventative measures and reduce the fear of crime. Such can be viewed through adding foot patrols, youth and police activities, neighborhood watch programs, and liaison programs with community leaders, yet the success of these programs remain uncertain (Alder, et al., 2013, pp.

P.O.V. In modern times, can we really trust police officials to do their jobs? Better yet, how much trust can we really have on all the officers that are supposed to be protecting us. That is hard to say, officers are always on the news these days, whether for murder, excessive use of force, or even abusing Civil forfeiture laws. The media has made it a point to show us this dark side of the law, causing the trust in police officials to diminish over time.
If such a situation would occur there is a public potential for outrage and backlash on the entire department. There must be an investigation along with elimination of the problem if findings develop that the reports are true. The intent of this project was to illustrate the importance of the Chief of Police’s use of discretion for operational and administrative duties. There were situations noted and how it affects the head of the department in different aspects of operational and administrative environments. The way the head of the department uses discretion to handle these issues affects the department greatly and even trickles down to the amount of discretion used for officers on administrative and operational duties.
The Los Angeles Police Department Police: Breakdowns that allowed corruption are still uncorrected, study finds. The chief concedes that mediocrity became a way of life at all levels of the department. The Los Angeles Police Department failed time and again to take steps that might have headed off the worst corruption scandal in its history, according to a sweeping self-indictment prepared by the department's own leaders. In a letter accompanying the long-awaited Board of Inquiry report into the corruption centered in the department's Rampart Division, Police Chief Bernard C. Parks called the scandal a "life-altering experience for the Los Angeles Police Department" in which corrupt officers took advantage of lax supervision to carry out criminal acts. "We as an organization provided the opportunity," Parks wrote.
It is important in regards to employment as well as for public perception. As the public and communities observe ethical behavior in off duty officers, they are assured that officers are not above the law. When unethical behavior occurs public perception changes. Social media and media have recently brought unreasonable force issues to the public, which has had a domino type affect which has escalated from communicating about unethical behavior and reexamining standards, to individuals rioting and protesting against law enforcement and police officers in general. Not all officers are unethical, most are ethical; one officers’ actions are being alleged by society that all law enforcement officers are unethical.
