This paper will Avoid statements of intent. Don’t say what you (or the essay) will do. We already know what should be covered in the essay by reading the prompt. Instead, state the actual claim and give an overview of how you will support the claim specifically. [Jennifer Chagala] 3. Make sure your thesis is the last sentence of the intro. Make sure your thesis states your position on the topic as a whole and gives the key points you will use to support your position. [Jennifer Chagala] 4. This is like a statement of intent. Just jump into proving the argument [Jennifer Chagala] 5. No subtitles [Jennifer Chagala] 6. training. Make sure every paragraph has a topic sentence, at least two examples from research, explanation of how those examples help support the thesis, and a closing sentence. The research is key—make sure to have research in all body paragraphs. [Jennifer Chagala] POLICE AND CRIME 2 Police should be effective when it comes to their work. There is the need for police officers to achieve their proper and officially sanctioned goals, such as when it comes to things relating to crime and maintaining law and order. Police officers are more than the crime fighters. They are conflict manager traffic controllers, and service providers among other things. Most people perceive these people to be only crime fighters, but this partially part of their work (Niederhoffer, 1967) . There is more to policing than only to fight evil. Fighting crime is just partial work of real policing. Real policing is much more. The role is inescapably complex. This paper will explain how the members of the public shall enjoy the police service and high quality security provision if they understand the various services, departments and activities that police officers must practice in the areas of their jurisdiction. Enjoying police services are possible through effective strategies the police and other security departments will implement to improve the level of security. Below are some strategies that will make police effective; hence making it possible for the public to enjoy the services they are providing: Police training Police training plays a significant role in helping to ensure effectiveness of policing and attainment of the desired goals. Moreover, through training, police officers are equipped to serve and protect the public. This is through gaining knowledge and skills that are needed to serve the public in a better way. There are shortfall in conduct that has been determined in some police officers. This shortfall in the conduct can be addressed through training officers. The fear that persists when it comes to policing can also be done away with through training. Criminal activities and ensure security – 3 – 1 2 3 4 1.

[Jennifer Chagala] 2. people. Support the ideas in this paragraph with research. [Jennifer Chagala] 3. response. Looking forward to the final draft, I’d suggest using more than one piece of cited evidence per body paragraph. One is a good start, but to really drive the point home, two or three pieces of evidence would be much stronger. [Jennifer Chagala] 4. guilty. Support with research. [Jennifer Chagala] POLICE AND CRIME 3 There are different types of criminal activities that people engage in. Among the criminal activities are theft (property theft, identity theft), assault (physical assault, sexual assault), murder, burglary, receipt of stolen goods, false pretense, forgery, and arson among others. This list of criminal activities is very long. Police officers have to ensure those caught in the act of carrying out these activities as well as those suspected are caught and brought to justice or punished. This will help to bring in the element of deterrence in other people. Police and disaster Natural and man-made disasters usually occur and result in many loses among people. Disasters are now frequent and their severities have increased. Police officers are called upon most times to help deal with these disasters (Ostrom, Parks, Whitaker & Percy, 1978) . Various strategies can be used by the police to deal with these disasters. Among the strategies are identifying the problems, being prepared, making use of technology to improve the management capabilities of disasters, come up with road to recovery from the occurrence of disaster, and make use of current telecommunication for effective communication and response. Police and enforcing of laws Police officers should ensure that they act in an organized manner while it comes to enforcing laws. The process of law enforcement will be achieved through discovering, deterring, rehabilitating, or punishing individuals who are found to violate norms and rules that are governing the society. Police officers should carry out surveillance and patrols so as to discover and dissuade criminal activities. Crime should be properly investigated and offenders should apprehended. Suspects should be properly treated, where they should not be denied their rights. A suspect will be guilty of a crime only when the court has found the person to be guilty. – 4 – 1 2 1. public. This is a pretty short paragraph–I would add more research and analysis for support. The ideal paragraph length is 1/2 to 3/4 page. [Jennifer Chagala] 2. Make sure to end with a conclusion that recaps all the main points of your essay. [Jennifer Chagala] POLICE AND CRIME 4 Relationship between different agents of security Police should cooperate effectively with other security agencies. This will make it easy to deal with issues and enhance the attainment of their goals. Good relationships can be built through effective communication that is meant to establish and maintain mutual cooperation and understanding. This can be possible through coming up with liaison program. A good liaison program will make it possible for communication to travel properly and constantly between other security agencies and police (Birzer, 1999) . Consistency, respect, and sharing will bring along trust and respect between police and security agencies. Corruption Corruption within police departments is not something new. It has been present since the beginning. Any behavior that goes past or abuses one’s parameter can be termed as corruption. This has been rampant in many departments. There is a need for ways to do away with corruption in police departments. One way is through coming up with police that are meant to encourage good behavior and eliminate elements of corruption. The policy should introduce appropriate punishment for those who are caught in the act or suspected to be corrupt. Also, officers should be trained properly to act ethically and uphold their moral standards. Community work Working with the community is very important since it helps to create a good relationship between the police and members of the public. The public can be good ears for the police. Police officers should ensure they engage in activities that are meant to promote good cooperation with the public. – 5 – 1 1. Watch citation format. Please see the examples in the announcements.
