Administrative Policies Unit 4 Db

It is important to have a department that reflects on the population at large that believes in hiring the best suitable candidates regardless of race, color, creed or sexual orientation. I believe it’s important to have a police department that has police officers that can understand and address all diverse needs of the community even if they aren’t part of the same cultural backgrounds. It is important that each officer is assigned to various jurisdictions no matter what their cultural background is or what the cultural background is of the area they are working in. Understanding the differences among various cultures is important for officers to understand though. Cultural Awareness should be brought into the lives of every police officer who is being trained. I would not think it would be desirable to staff a police department with only Chinese officers just because the city is populated with Chinese, the same goes for any other culture.

  1. 1. Administrative Policies<br />Carla J. McCoy<br />Unit 4 DB – CRJ206<br />April 16th, 2009<br />American InterContinental University <br />Personal View on a Department Reflecting the Population<br />It is important to have a department that reflects on the population at large that believes in hiring the best suitable candidates regardless of race, color, creed or sexual orientation. I believe it’s important to have a police department that has police officers that can understand and address all diverse needs of the community even if they aren’t part of the same cultural backgrounds. It is important that each officer is assigned to various jurisdictions no matter what their cultural background is or what the cultural background is of the area they are working in. Understanding the differences among various cultures is important for officers to understand though. Cultural Awareness should be brought into the lives of every police officer who is being trained. I would not think it would be desirable to staff a police department with only Chinese officers just because the city is populated with Chinese, the same goes for any other culture. (Administration of Criminal Justice: eBook, 2009) <br />A Caucasian section of town would not only accept Caucasian officers because we all have come a long way when it comes to accepting various cultures and new trends no matter what culture you are from. Having a Caucasian side of town only accept Caucasian officers would be a form of discrimination and people would view it as just that. (Administration of Criminal Justice: eBook, 2009) A good example to show how things used to be considering how they are now is to take a look at the years Prior to 1948 where blacks were not allowed to be members of the Atlanta (Georgia) Police Department (Kuykendall & Burns, 1983:64) These officers were not even permitted to wear uniforms similar to those worn by white officers, so you can see where times have changed for the better. (Administration of Criminal Justice: eBook, 2009) <br />Difference in Economic Bases of Various Areas<br />I found a great quote that makes this pretty evident that I wanted to share. “Information about an area’s future population is incomplete without a parallel understanding of the local economy that largely shapes its future.” (Klosterman, p. 113) There are Economic Sectors to review which are Basic Sectors and Non-Basic Sectors. The Basic Sector is based on local businesses dependent on external factors where the Non-Basic Sector is made up of firms that depend on local business conditions. There are various differences among cities when it comes to strengthening and growing the local economy. In other words when economic sectors are not tied to the local economy it becomes stronger. (Florida State University, 2009)<br />When businesses rely on external markets then the local economy can insulate itself better from economic downturns and even If the economy gets there is high hope that they will remain strong. On the other hand if you take a local economy that is completely dependent on local factors they will certainly have trouble responding to economic downfalls. There are two techniques to use when figuring out the Economic Bases of various areas of any city. One would be the Economic Base Analysis Technique and the other would be the Economic Base Projection Technique. In the Economic Base Analysis Technique there are three various techniques to use which are: (Florida State University, 2009)<br /><ul><li>The Assumption Technique
  2. 2. Location Quotient Technique
  3. 3. Minimum Requirements Technique </li></ul>In the Economic Base Projection Technique there are two techniques to use which are: <br /><ul><li>Constant-Share Projection Technique
  4. 4. Shift-Share Projection Technique </li></ul>Six things you will need when doing this are Basic verses Non-basic sectors which gives you Exports versus Imports, The Base Multiplier which gives you Interpretation, and Calculation, An explanation of why the Basic Sector is more important to the local economy, Local Conditions and Examples, A definition of geographic and measurement units, and Data sources such as SIC Codes. (Florida State University, 2009) <br />Well-Educated Officers to Well-Educated Areas<br />Being as the laws change from state to state it is not necessary to provide well educated officers to the citizens of well educated areas. Well educated officers actually need to be everywhere not just in well educated areas but they need to be well educated in areas that the public is not educated in which would come through training. I believe this is an on going process for police officers to be trained in various areas such as how to deal with people with mental illnesses for example. A well educated area will not always know how to deal with this but the police should. Not all police departments require officers to have degrees, but as long as they pass the academy training, pass the exams, qualifications, and in some cases even IQ tests then they are hired. This all changes from state to state depending on where they are.
