CRJ 310 Assignment 1: Foundations of the Development and Functions of Police

To understand contemporary policing in America, it is essential to understand the history by looking at the past eras. The police have day-to-day practices influenced by deeply ingrained traditions.  It’s also necessary to comprehend how an officer’s career begins, from the academy to the street. The effective partnership between the police and the community must also be understood to better appreciate the development and functions of police.

  3. Provide your own definition of community-policing and explain the difference between community policing and traditional policing.
  4. Critically examine the important elements of implementation and evaluation phases of community policing and problem solving.
  5. Determine the top five (5) qualities that detectives and undercover officers need to possess (one [1] being the most important). Provide a rationale for your response.
