Law enforcement and the community have always had an off and on relationship. Like any other relationship they have their disagreements, misunderstandings and break-ups. However at the end of the day both sides share common interests, deterrence and justice. With the influx of immigrants in the past decades the United States has been bombarded with many different cultures and languages. Therefore society’s views and opinions of law enforcement vary from ethnicity to ethnicity. We will be exploring how the Asian, Hispanic and Black communities see law enforcement from discrimination, racial profiling and past experiences. Also, we will discuss how non-minorities view law enforcement and their actions. The shattered relations between law enforcement and minorities will be included in the discussion. In addition, the police officers and the rise of diversity and how they interact with the community, response to the growth of ethnic communities and education on diversity. Lastly, racial profiling and its effects on police officers, the community and the department will be explored.
Ethnic Groups
The increase of immigration and diversity has sometimes made relationships with police difficult. Asian and Hispanics communities are often fearful of police officers due to there past experiences. There past experiences vary from their country of origin that was plagued with war and civil unrest. This includes corruption in law enforcement and abuse of power by authority figures. Leading many minorities to fear and sometimes dislike law enforcement. Hispanic communities often feel that police officers discriminated them by racial profiling them. In Arizona the very controversial SB 1070 anti-illegal immigration bill has passed which allows police…...

Facility Planning Part Ii

...Facility Planning Part II HCS 446 Facility Planning Part II Introduction Development and growing a facility takes much time and contemplation with respect to regulatory requirements, budgets, planning and development of the building and the interior design of the building.   Making certain code requirements are met which is usually to help the architect and contractor. Many matters must be well-thought-out during the preliminary design created by the stakeholders in the blueprint.   Color collections used, which are satisfying physically and psychologically as well as noise reduction must be reflected when planning the facility.   Equipment and electronic items must be determined upon prior to construction of the facility. Cost estimate and budget planning are the first steps, which must be determined before the design of the facility. An implementation plan of the proposal from the preliminary phases of the plan of the facility through construction of the facility has to be arranged and charted. Regulatory requirements Health care facilities are required to follow the licensing regulations of their state in the design they use. Usually this is the 'Facility Guidelines Institute guidelines for design and construction of health care facilities' (Carr, 2010). The states require use of the codes in International Building and in addition, they need to be accredited by the 'Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations' (Carr, 2010).  The regulations......

Suppose a can contains a residual amount of gas at a pressure of 755 mm Hg and a temperature of 25 °C. What would the pressure be if the can were heated to 1155 °C? * Answer: Residual pressure: 755 mm Hg = 0.993 atm * Final pressure = ? * Start temperature = 25 °C = 298 K * Final temperature = 1155 °C = 1428 K * * Since the volume in the can then: * P1/T1 = P2/T2 * P2=(P1*T2)/T1= (0.993*1428)/298=4.76 atm = 3617.6 mm Hg * Exercise 50 in Ch. 12 * At the top of Mount. Everest, water boils at 70 °C. Explain why. * Answer: Water’s normal boiling point is considered at a pressure of 1 atmosphere—is 100 °C. A decrease in atmospheric pressure lowers the boiling point. At the top of Mount Everest the air pressure is about a third of the pressure at sea level. * Exercise 104 in Ch. 12 * Water does not easily remove grease from dirty hands because grease is nonpolar and water is polar; therefore they are immiscible.

Ethnicity and the Police

...Ethnicity and the Police Donald Wilson Jr CJA 344 February 13, 2014 Linda Fisher-Lewis Ethnicity and the Police Police officers have a very demanding job. They are here to protect and serve all citizens no matter how those citizens treat the officers or what their opinion on those officers is. Everyone has a different opinion on how they feel about police officers. This opinion usually derives from things like past experiences, witnessing someone else’s experiences, and even your ethnic background. Many factors mold an opinion and may even change an opinion of an individual over time. Every ethnicity has a different overall opinion of the police. For example, Caucasians are very open and usually favor police officers far more than any other ethnicity. When polled Caucasians had the highest favorable rating for police officers. African Americans gave some of the lowest ratings when polled about their opinions of police officers in their community. Hispanics were also considerably lower than Caucasians when asked their opinion of the police force in their neighborhood. The difference between the African Americans and the Hispanics is that there isn’t much data that incorporates Hispanics, and there is as much data for African Americans and there is for Caucasians. Obviously there are many different reasons for these opinions, and not everyone of that particular ethnicity feels the same way. When looking at a neighborhood and talking about the crime rate...

When they did, slaves tended to own their own slaves. This is how it was up until 1750 when Georgia legalized slavery. Slavery was more needed in the south than the north due to the climate and ability to grow more crops. (Webmaster, 2011) Around 1808, the importation of slavery ended due to the rise in births. Blacks then made up 20% of the American population. | 2) The socio-cultural impact of the abolitionist movement including: a) The effect......

Ethnicity and the Police Corruption Part I

...Ethnicity and the Police Corruption Part I Patricia Munive CJA 344 June 11, 2014 Constant Wilson Ethnicity and the Police Corruption Officials and witnesses state, the sergeant grabbed a 14 year old teenager by the name of Javier and pushed him hard against the window of the hookah store, shattering the glass and causing bad cuts to Javier’s head and body but let’s take into account what happened that led up to the accident. No officers should be permitted to use excessive force without reprimand especially when causing such bodily harm to someone who is already handcuffed (Schwirtz & Pastor, 2014). Some officers feel they have the right to use excessive force and think because of their positon in law-enforcement they can get away with that kind of abuse. Abusing their authority and getting away injuring handcuffed people is corruption. Last month in May, there were two teenagers hand cuffed in front of a Hookah store in the Bronx. Two teenagers were arrested for assaulting a 49 year-old-man for refusing to give them a cigarettes. Authorities stated that Javier and his friend were walking in the vicinity of the west Bronx when they saw the 49-year-old. The teenagers ask the man for a cigarette and when the man refused they assaulted him. When the man turned his back one of the kids punched him in the head and the other hit him in the back with a backpack. The man suffered minor injuries. The authorities stated the man flagged them down to look for the boys. The......

Ethnicity and the Police

...Ethnicity and the Police (Part II) Monica Angulo CJA/344 August 6, 2014 Instructor Name Ethnicity and the Police Racial profiling indicates the system law enforcement officials use to target people for suspicion of crime grounded on the person's race, ethnicity, religion or national origin. Criminal profiling, usually, as performed by police, is the deduction on a group of characteristics they consider to be connected with crime. An example of racial profiling is the use of race to conclude which motorists to stop for minor traffic violations (usually referred to as "driving while black” or “driving while brown"). The use of race to conclude which individuals to search for illegal paraphernalia is another example of racial profiling. This practice, however, can result contra productive, as highlighted in the following cases. Racial Profiling Gone Wrong Poor judgment calls based on racial profiling have been made by law enforcement officials, where racism and discrimination has taken over violating individuals’ civil rights, creating friction with the community and the public. NYC Cop Testifies to Targeting Young Black Men As hearings began to examine New York City’s stop and frisk policy, one police officer testified that he was instructed by superiors to target young Black men between the ages of 14 and 21. In 2011 alone, New York City police executed 685,724 stops as part of the stop and frisk policy. In total, they......

...Ethical Scrapbook: Part II James Bush CJS/211 September 14, 2015 Michael Raneses Ethical Scrapbook: Part II The twelve examples used in the Ethical Scrapbook: Part I will be analyzed in order to answer several questions. The examples in the scrapbook are in the following categories: Good Samaritan conduct or random acts of kindness Acts of vigilantism-violating the law to enforce the law Acts of civil disobedience-violating the law to change the law Criminal acts committed by professionals in the course of their employment Questions The following will be answered about the examples: Do you think the individual made the best decision possible given the circumstances? Could you see yourself acting similarly in similar circumstances? Example 1 the victim had her car stolen and she proceeded to give chase and grab bystander’s attention, she made the best decision possible however I don’t think this was very safe looking backwards but I probably would have done the same thing. Example 2 was a random act of kindness I do believe this was the thing to do and would like to think that I would be so kindhearted to react the same way and pay the blind man without any regards for heroism. The third example in this set is also random act of kindness and good Samaritans. The community worked together after a collision involving a mother and daughter. The people pulled her from the vehicle and waited with the child in the cool......

Police Officer Ii: on the Job

...Running head: POLICE OFFICER II: ON THE JOB POLICE OFFICERS II: ON THE JOB Sigfredo A. Collazo Excelsior College Abstract Police officers are people the society should always be seen as the epitomes of discipline and guardian of law and order; however police behavior in recent years has been nothing but exemplary thus rising to extreme bitterness and disbelieve in the community. The community no longer trusts or respects police officers levying all sorts of charges against them. Police officers behavior is indeed despicable in some cases, especially where minorities or women are concerned. Police subculture is responsible for providing officers a different working attitude and mindset. Their character and personality are profoundly altered by the views and values that they learn from existing in this subculture. The one most important thing about this subculture is the idea of insiders and outsiders that lie at the center of all its values. Police officers are continuously reminded of their part as protectors of good order and discipline which turns them into the community as they view everyone outside the police department as a potential criminal or suspect. Police culture is also primarily characterized by violence. Many officers are exposed to a subculture of violence in which they encounter death almost daily. The police are influenced by a flawed subculture that profoundly affects the attitude and performance of most police officers. On one hand,......

Decisions in Paradise Part Ii

...Decisions in Paradise Part II Lisa M. Campbell MGT/350 December 19, 2011 Professor Rebecca Marek Decisions in Paradise Part II The decision to open a hotel on the island of Kava has been a challenge for owner Lisa Campbell. Decision-making and numerous situations are evaluated to ensure this decision-making will be best not only for the hotel but also that it will benefit the local islanders and the people who visit Kava temporarily. The Marriott Kava hotel is projected to be a medium size facility. The accommodations will ensure local islanders, patients receiving extended health care at the local cancer center, families, couples, and even business travelers will have a place to stay during their visit. The decision is if it will be more beneficial to build a standalone hotel in the middle of the island, merge the business with the local cancer center, or build the hotel near the airport ensuring it is near the new transit shuttle bus company. Building a standalone hotel ensures that if the tourism and visitor rate to the island increases the hotel will have no obligations and commitments to another company and able to focus on just providing space for guest of the hotel. The downside of this is that the business owner limits herself to other business opportunities if the standalone method is sought after. Business is based on the needs of living areas on a temporary basis. The developer that has come to the island to build housing projects for the...

Quality Improvement Part Ii

...Running head: QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PLAN PART II Quality Improvement Plan Part II Cheryl Wright University of Phoenix HCS 588 Cynthia Hughes July 16, 2012 Quality Improvement Plan Part II Quality improvement is a hospitals process to advance the quality of care and outcomes for patients using an explicit set of philosophies and procedures (Walker, 2012). This paper attempts to describe some of the areas of potential advances for quality improvement at Washington County Regional Medical Center (WCRMC) nursing unit. One principle of quality improvement is measurement, which is the collection of data to improve patient care. Using these measurements and tools can help leaders understand the direction of quality in the organization. Areas of Potential Improvement for the Organization. The areas of consideration for improvement at WCRMC are emergency room wait times and discharge instructions. Both of these improvement areas have financial and influence for the health care organization. Emergency room wait times can reduce the market share and financial stability of the health care organization. Discharge instruction if given appropriately by the nursing staff can reduce the readmission rate for WCRMC, along with financial gain and improve the satisfaction of the patient experience. These are just of couple of measures WCRMC can use to align the mission of the organization and the commitment of improving performance. There are several models and......

Ethics Scrapbook Part Ii

...Ethical Scrapbook Part II Students Name CJA/324 Ethics in Criminal Justice Date Instructor Ethical Scrapbook Part II Ethics are a part of nearly everything that we as a society do. Whether we are late for work or even filing your federal taxes, an ethical decision is being made. Life is about choices, morals, and principles. In the field of criminal justice, ethics can be applied as well. Just as police are sworn to serve and protect by oath for the principles by which they are governed, so are most professions today. “Should All Jurisdictions Have a Good Samaritan Law Requiring an Individual to Help Another if They Are Able?” Requiring persons to help another when they are able without percussions of being sued against death or permanent damage to the victim has been helpful in certain situations where ambulatory assistance has not yet arrived. Often times a person can prevent death or stabilize a person until help arrives. If a person moves another person in need and actually causes permanent damage to them, they are not held accountable for that; in other words, they cannot be sued. I believe that there should be a law regarding Good Samaritans; however, I do not believe that it should be required. While the law is helpful, it can also be hurtful. For example, going back to my example above, should the person in need now be permanently immobilized, they cannot go after the person that helped for financial or medical money or charges incurred......
