A case starts the moment the call is received. In many cases there is evidence or clues on the call itself. One of the things you can get from the call is a description of the incident, suspect information, and other various clues and information. Then when you get on scene your real investigation will begin. You may or may not have real life suspects or victims on scene. Once you get on scene you have to start processing information and the scene itself. You never know what clues you will get when you show up on scene.

There are different types of evidence to collect when you process a scene. There is trace evidence, which includes hairs, fibers, glass and soil. The second is impression evidence, which includes fingerprints left on objects, and also palms, tires and cloth. The next kind of evidence is biological to include blood, teeth and skeletal remains. The fourth kind of evidence is firearms and weapons including the guns and ammunition. The last is probably the one that most people forget or disregard, are documents to include contracts, currency, passports, and other documents.

In the case that was presented on page 126 there was a lot of evidence to be processed. The call originated as a disturbance from neighbors. The officers arrived and discovered a very disrupted house. From the pictures, there were obvious signs of a struggle with in the residence. So the description stated that when the officer arrived no one was at the scene. The officer of course would have secured the residence and searched for any potentially injured victims, spoken to neighbors and possibly put out a bolo for their vehicle if it was missing. In the pictures that the book shows there were definitely things that would have needed to be processed especially since they found blood. Figure 4.55 and 4.56 shows the house and how it…...

Corruption of Florida Police Officers

...Corruption of Florida Police Officers Name Learning Institution CORRUPTION OF FORIDA POLICE OFFICERS Police officers are law enforcement officers who are expected to keep law and order in the society by controlling crimes, investigating crimes, making arrests, patrolling streets and controlling traffics (MacVean & Neyroud, 2012). They are expected to show high level of good ethical conduct such as honesty, integrity, courage, responsibility and good character (MacVean & Neyroud, 2012). This has not been the case in the country. Controversial behaviors have widely been reported among the police officers who are expected to enforce the low and order. The police have been accused of violating the moral ethical values by engaging in corruption (MacVean & Neyroud, 2012). Therefore this paper intends to discuss the ethical issues in regards to police officers in Opa-Locka and Miami Florida. Ethics and Corruption Ethical issues do crop up in our day to day life. In the law enforcement departments, a clear understanding of the ethics will be of greater importance since the officers are highly expected to practice good moral values in the society. Therefore, police administration and the Attorney General should ensure that officers adhere to the police code of conduct so as not to develop mistrust in the eyes of the public (MacVean & Neyroud, 2012). However, ethics is defined as the study of the specific moral conducts an individual practices while relating...

Police Discretion Case Analysis

...Police Discretion Case Analysis Albeiro E. Florez Law Enforcement Administration CCJS 340 Due by 13 October 2013 Author Note Albeiro E. Florez, Department of Criminal Justice, University of Maryland University College. This report is a response to Professor Jeffrey B. Bumgarner’s project 2 directives. Correspondence concerning this report should be addressed to Albeiro E. Florez, Department of Criminal Justice, University of Maryland University College, Adelphi eCampus, Adelphi, MD 20783. Contact: florezalbeiro87@gmail.com Police Discretion Case Analysis People make decisions on a daily basis to decide what we should do in any given situation. Having the knowledge to differentiate between what is appropriate or inappropriate is what gives us the freedom to make this decision with the correct judgment. In law enforcement, sworn officers are taught to face any situation by employing good judgment and making the best decisions by themselves or with little to no supervision. This is what we know as police discretion (The Rynard Law Firm, 2007). The Merriam-Webster dictionary describes discretion as “the quality of being careful about what you do and say so that people will not be embarrassed or offended” (Merriam-Webster, 2013). Although systematic routines and protocols need to be followed by officers to ensure they abide by the law as well as to enforce it, often circumstances will show up and force officers to make a decision based on what they feel is......

Florida

...Florida The other night I was sitting by the blazing fire eating a juicy orange, and the sweet smell reminded me of my vacations to Florida over winter break. I will never forget the fresh smell of the air when we stepped off the airplane. I could see my grandparents from across the crowded airport. I would always be so excited to step on the soft, white, sandy beach. The first thing I would do is change into my bathing suit and run out to the beach. My sister and I would spend the day splashing in the salty water, until we were too tired to keep our heads above the water. Then we would lie on the soft damp sand and take a nap. It felt so good to have the bright sun blazing down on me. My favorite thing to do was build gigantic sand castles on the beach. My sister and I would have contests to see who could build the tallest sand castle. The grains of sand glistened in the sun like a diamond ring. I will never forget how the gigantic orange trees towered over me. Every day my grandpa would pick me an orange; they were so juicy! Every time I think about an orange, my mouth waters, and I think of how sweet they taste. Normally bedtime was a problem for me, but in Florida I fell right to sleep every night. I would leave the windows wide open, and I would fall asleep to the waves crashing on the sandy beach. I could hear the birds chirping outside my window along with the rustling of the wind. In the mornings we would walk to this little breakfast place......

...guilty person and an innocent person. Due to modern technology, we now know the direct truth and can determine who is at fault. In Tallahassee, Florida, a woman being arrested for driving under the influence leads into a traumatic and physical arrest. The article also includes the full arrest caught on the dashboard camera. In this article, the author shows the lack of competency and structure displayed by the Tallahassee Police Department which leaves this investigation open for debate. In the early morning of August 10, 2013, in Tallahassee, Florida, police had arrived at an alcohol-related accident. The suspect involved is a 44-year old female by the name of Christina West. According to the police report, Christina West had crashed her vehicle into a house on Kilkenny Drive. Upon arrival, officers initially performed a field-sobriety test and determined she was intoxicated. West was initially placed under arrest with a driving under the influence (DUI) charge. Video surveillance, from one of the police officer’s dashboard camera, shows the entire arrest, along with the sobriety test performed at the scene, from start to finish. After viewing the footage captured by the dashboard camera, I found the footage to be very disturbing. What started as a routine DUI conviction led to become a violent incident by the Tallahassee Police Department. West performed her sobriety test, as the officer’s had asked, along with some sarcasm and drunk humor. The two officers......

Prohibition in Florida

...Prohibition in Florida Your Name Professor Name and Class Prohibition is defined as the act of forbidding something by law. In Florida the prohibition alcohol encountered many issues due to the close proximity of neighboring countries and the illegal import of the alcohol. Florida’s coastal line was one of the most prominent factors in its battle during the prohibition of alcohol days. The thought of prohibition of alcohol was proposed to the citizens, by the government and the church as an attempt to reduce crime, improve health, and protect the women and children in society (www.floridahistory.org). The government officials went into the neighborhoods and town meetings and told the families and homeowners that prohibiting alcohol would make their neighborhoods safer and the pastors preached about alcohol and the bible to their congregations instilling the fear of displeasing God. The whites would be concerned of their safety and power and restricted blacks from alcohol whether they were free or still in slavery due to their concerns of having less power or being ineffective in slave ownership. In any effort, their attempts to abolish alcohol led to many more illegal operations and the people of the Florida are became very creative about finding ways to obtain the illegal alcohol. The 18th amendment was established and declared the sale, production, and transport of alcohol illegal. The amendment became law on January 17th, 1920. The advocates of the......

Sunny Grove Police Control Case Study

...Sunny Grove Police Control Case Study Sean Karrels Webster University MNGT 5000 MANAGEMENT 2014 Dr. John Theodore February 15, 2014 Sunny Grove Police Control Case Study Anytime that a manager or executive takes over a new organization there is going to be change. To paraphrase Charles Darwin, it is not the strongest of species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. (Rumsfeld, 2013) I would argue in this particular case that this is a perfect opportunity for any leader, by that I mean you are walking into an organization with challenges, but there is only 1 way to go and that’s up, that is a preverbal softball for any type A personality! Being a solid leader however is not enough to turn around any organization that has problems with the basic building blocks or to use a sports analogy, a football team that cannot block and tackle. In this analysis I am going to attempt to suggest some controls that can be used to improve the Sunny Grove Police Department for the present and future. Strategy First! I am going to start this out with a quote that I have used in previous case studies from Donald Rumsfeld to set the table for my opening argument in this analysis, I will get to managerial control, but I think as the new Chief of Police for Sunny Grove, my first step is going to establish a Strategy first, and get everyone on board and then transition to putting control systems in place for success. Strategy is a general plan of......

Florida V. Jardines

...Case Name: FLORIDA, Petitioner v. Joelis JARDINES Citation: 133 S.Ct. 1409 Procedural History: Defendant, who was charged with trafficking in cannabis and theft of electricity, moved to suppress evidence seized pursuant to a search warrant that was obtained after a dog-sniff on front porch of defendant's home. The Florida Circuit Court, Miami–Dade County, William Thomas, J., granted the motion. State appealed. The Florida District Court of Appeal, 9 So.3d 1, reversed and certified a conflict. The Florida Supreme Court, Perry, J., 73 So.3d 34, quashed the decision of the District Court of Appeal. Certiorari was granted. Statement of Facts: In 2006, Detective William Pedraja of the Miami–Dade Police Department received an unverified tip that marijuana was being grown in the home of respondent Joelis Jardines. One month later, the Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration sent a joint surveillance team to Jardines' home where the dog gave a positive alert for narcotics. Based on the alert, the officers obtained a warrant for a search, which revealed marijuana plants; Jardines was charged with trafficking in cannabis. The Supreme Court of Florida approved the trial court's decision to suppress the evidence, holding that the officers had engaged in a Fourth Amendment search unsupported by probable cause. Issues: Was there a trespassory invasion of curtilage that constituted a search for fourth amendment purposes? Did officers have an implied license for the......

Florida Keys Case Study

...Florida Keys Hospital Traditional Project Analysis This case is a traditional capital budgeting analysis that focuses on the issues of cash flow analysis, profitability and breakeven measures, inflation effects, and risk assessment and risk incorporation—issues that are common to most real asset investment decisions. You are required to develop a model to calculate the ambulatory surgery center’s net cash flows on the basis of estimated utilization, estimated charges, and other relevant data and then take this data and calculate the NPV, IRR, MIRR, and Payback. You must also perform sensitivity and scenario analyses. You should also provide an analysis of risk and the impact of inflation on project profitability. Your completed assignment will be evaluated on the basis of addressing all of the following (in no particular order): 1. The hospital already owns the site for the center, so should any cost be attributed to the land? Explain. 2. What overhead costs should be included in this analysis? 3. How should the cannibalization of inpatient surgeries be handled? 4. a. What is the project's payback? What is the economic interpretation of payback? What type of information do decision makers get from the payback? b. What is the project's net present value (NPV)? Explain the economic rationale behind this profitability measure. c. What is the project's internal rate of return (IRR)? Explain the economic rationale behind IRR. Do the NPV and IRR always lead to......

Police Case Study-Immigration Reform

...purposes and to authorize the cancellation of removal and adjustment of status of certain alien students who are long-term United States residents and who entered the United States as children, and for other purposes. Proponents say the act is a crucial measure for protecting undocumented youth, who did not choose to immigrate to the United States, while critics contend that it would encourage others to immigrate illegally with hopes of eventually obtaining permanent residence for their children. Conclusion Our nation's immigration policies must be consistent with humanitarian values and with the need to treat all individuals with respect and dignity. Any proposal that would criminalize undocumented immigrants, encourage state or local police to enforce immigration laws, or penalize individuals for providing humanitarian assistance to their fellow human beings must be strongly opposed. President Obama said he want Republicans and Democrats to work with him on creating a bill that satisfied both parties. Calling for compromise, the president acknowledged his critics and said every president of the last half century have taken similar actions on immigration. To those who said the president should not use executive power and work with Congress to pass reforms, Obama's message was "pass a bill." References (centered, not bold) Cohen, S. (January, 2013).

Florida

...terrain” and is susceptible to a sinkhole event. The most damage from sinkholes tends to occur in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania. In west-central Florida and elsewhere, their increasing frequency of sinkholes corresponds to the accelerated development of ground-water and land resources. Most of Florida is prone to sinkhole formation because it is underlain by thick carbonate deposits that are susceptible to dissolution by circulating ground water. Florida’s principal source of freshwater, ground water, moves into and out of storage in the carbonate aquifers (most productive). Development of these ground-water resources (municipal, industrial and agricultural water supplies) creates regional ground-water-level declines that play a role in accelerating sinkhole formation, thereby increasing susceptibility of the aquifers to contamination from surfacewater drainage. Such interactions between surface-water and ground-water resources in Florida play a critical and complex role in the long-term management of water resources and ecosystems of Florida’s wetlands SINKHOLES ARE A NATURALLY OCCURRING IN FLORIDA LANDSCAPE The exposed land mass that constitutes the Florida peninsula is only part of a larger, mostly submerged carbonate platform that is partially capped with a sequence of relatively insoluble sand and clay deposits. In west-central Florida, the relation between the carbonate surface and the mantling deposits plays an......

Lapd Police Reform After Rodney King Case

...The Scene that started it all: After a decade of policing crises that began with the beating of Rodney King in April, 1991, which was shown around the World wasn’t bad enough, the Rampart police corruption scandal in 1999 wasn’t bad enough, the city of Los Angles exploded after the three officers were found not guilty in the beating of Rodney King. People took to the streets to protest, and over 50 people lost their lives. Reforms: The U. S. Department of Justice announced in 2000 that it had accumulated enough evidence to sue the City of Los Angeles over a pattern-and- practice of police misconduct.  The city government entered a “consent decree” promising to adopt scores of reform measures under the supervision of the Federal Court. There were two components included in the police reform: The consent decree produced by the Justice Department’s intervention, and the leadership of chief William Bratton, who since 2002 has focused the Department’s attention simultaneously on reducing crime, improving morale, and complying fully with the consent decree. Results: The LMPD did not meet their goals after five years, so the Government decided to extend the decree for three more years.  But, during those first five years, the crime rate dropped, there were fewer reports of police complaints, and changes were made from the top to the bottom. At first, you had policemen complain about they were afraid to stop people for fear of being reprimanded; having too much paperwork to......

Florida Power

...Florida Power and Light Summary The deregulation of the energy industry has offered Florida Power and Light the opportunity to adjust its internal structure in an effort to provide better products and services to consumers. The adjustments and creation of different management programs have aided in guiding FPL from being a local utility company to a national energy services enterprise. Analysis The energy industry is maybe one of the most stable industries in the market. Much like any other industry it has its strengths and weaknesses, but in terms of consumer demand it’s safe to say that the energy industry will be around for quite some time. If we look at technicalities it is also safe to say that energy resource refinement and utilization has been around since the beginning of time. The energy industry is one of enormous depth because of the many different resource types and respective uses. There are two more common sides of this industry; one could even imply these are the two main types, power and lighting as well as oil and gas. It is true that in many cases when we refer to oil and gas it is an industry in its own, much like power and lighting. However, when we understand all that is included in the energy industry we begin to realize and understand that the two latter industries are in essence offspring of the energy industry. Because electricity and fuel are created differently we separate the two and create industries specific to each. However,......

Florida Constitution

...The Constitution of Florida The state of Florida’s Constitution can be defined as a brilliant structure of essential values for state government that is eternal and broad-spectrum in nature and derives from the people rather than the Governing body. In 1838 the first constitution was written. Every twenty years, the constitution is studied to decide whether or not improvements and adjustments must be made. The Florida law affects every attribute of everyday life, for instance, how and what location we construct our homes, the way we disburse our taxes, our well-being and physical condition, and our power to vote and partake in government. Florida’s Constitution is separated into twelve articles which summarizes context for government and for people’s rights.
