Such as Detective or Police Chief? Are these jobs somewhat easy to come by with these credentials or is it pretty hard?
Assume you are a new police chief of a department with a history of bias against protected groups (e.g., minorities, gays, and women), addressing the entire police force. As the new chief you state: “We cannot think critically if we use bias.” Support this statement with reasons and at least two recommendations for improving decisions in the field.
I have been told many different stories of having an Associates degree is better then a Bachelors and vice versa. I have been told that police departments that requires an Associates only will hire associate degree applicants. I have been told that a bachelors degree would be better, since it is so competitive now a days and if you cant get a job then your S.O.L. I have also been told that if you have a bachelors degree and apply to an associates requirement department, that odds are they will not hire you due to the fact of being over-educated.
My Sources: #1military veteran, police officer, promoted to captain, and he's in S.W.A.T. #2 police chief. #3 police lieutenant. #4 police officer in my family.
Also I live in northern Ohio. Basically what is truly better to have. An Associates or a Bachelors in law enforcement. I know society says Bachelors degree, but from my sources 2 of them say that a Bachelors degree is a bad way to go, manly because I will be either Over qualified to be a police officer, or police departments will not want me, due to the fact that YES they want educated individuals, but being educated isn't everything in dealing with being a police officer.
What a load of garbage. Cops can't even do their job now. You're letting the population bully not only teachers, but now cops, who are trying to do the right thing.
Imagine what would've happened if Moats killed someone. It might be the police chief resigning today.
I understand that the mayor assaulted his wife and the police chief covered it up to keep her job. Along with both of them taking kick backs.
Almost 30,000 jobs will be lost in police forces across England and Wales under the Government's budget cuts, police chiefs have predicted.
Will he now be having a go at Osborne for all of these cuts to the police?
He must have last seen BBC in 1960 if he thinks this. The BBC is ultra PC. It's usually white people who are portrayed as thick and doing menial jobs. Coloured people are usually MPs, Police Chiefs, Barristers and other such jobs and vocations. Come to think of it we didn't see too many coloured people in his series Cracker.
Barbie : No wonder you are famous. You obviously don't watch BBC childres TV where white faces are in the minority. Isn't that racist ?
Veritas : The first reasonable answer. Cannot understand why all the lefties have to be abusive.
I do however think there is a political agenda in the BBC's portrayal of minority groups.
Drjondee : Thank heavens most people aren't blinkered liberals.
Your on patrol and you pull over the police of chief son on his 18th birthday and notice he's drunk, what do you do?
I have a project on the police structure and their jobs can anyone help me.
A police officer is not there to interpret the law, he is only to follow it. We have a Judiciary that interprets the law. A sheriff in Oregon has taken it upon himself to be the judge and interpret the law as he sees fit.
We are a land of laws and those who do not follow them should pay the penalty, and in this case he should be removed from office. If I were Sheriff and stated that I didn't think that a 25 yr old dating a 12 yr old was a crime, then should it be ok?
Peace officers are a noble breed, daily risking their lives to protect and serve the rest of us. They are what separate the evil of the lawless from us.
Two weeks ago on a dark, cool misty Texas night, Needville, Texas, Independent School District Chief of Police Ernie Mendoza, was coming home from his job. He had been supervising a basketball game at one of the local schools. As chief of police of Needville Independent School District, it was his job to protect students during school and during events.
However, on the same road was 29-year-old construction worker Guillermo Paniagua. Guillermo was drunk and driving his pickup truck. He was headed toward the chief's car. And within moments Gulliermo's truck crossed the center stripe of the road, slammed head first into the chief of police's vehicle. The crash instantly killed this dedicated police chief.
The chief had devoted 25 years of his life as one of Texas's lawmen. It was something that meant a lot to him. He was proud to serve his country as a peace officer. He was a 1983 graduate of the Waco Police Department where he worked in this small central Texas town.
Then he moved on to the big city of Houston, Texas, where he worked with the Houston Independent School District Police Department, one of the Nation's largest school districts. And then in 1996 he accepted the position with the Needville ISD Police Department where he became chief of police.
ISD police officers have the responsibility to protect children and teachers while they are in school. They maintain law and order and discipline. They keep the kids safe from day to day. And Chief Mendoza was one of the best. He strived to be a positive role model for the kids he protected, and he made peace officers look good.
He took the time to talk to kids and was well liked throughout the school. But it all ended a mile from his own home and the indifference of a drunk driver. Like most drunk drivers, Guillermo had only minor cuts and bruises. He was not injured. But those bruises did not keep him, the coward, the killer, from running from the scene in the darkness of the night.
He was quickly captured by the Wharton County, Texas Sheriff's Department, and now he faces first-degree felony murder charges, and failure to stop and render aid.
You see, when you drink and drive and kill somebody, that is a felony, as it ought to be. Chief Mendoza's wife and four children are now deprived of
their husband, and father for the rest of their lives. The kids of the Needville school system have lost a good protector.
But this was not Guillermo's first rodeo. You see, he has a total of four intoxication convictions in the United States, two in Texas and two in Georgia. In Texas he was given probation for a DWI, but that was revoked when he was rearrested. And then when he got that second DWI, he only spent 3 days in jail and got 18 months probation and his license was suspended.
This drunk should never have been given his driver's license back at all. His four DWI convictions proved that the system is not holding him accountable for being a drunk driver.
But the most disturbing thing about Guillermo Paniagua is he is illegally in this country. So why is he still here? How did he get a driver's license in the first place? Why was his immigration status not checked by the police officers each and every time he was picked up for drunk driving? He should have been deported the first time he was arrested.
Police Chief Ernie Mendoza was killed at the hands of an illegal, a drunk driver. And this could have all been prevented. He and his family have become more victims of the U.S.'s inability to secure the border and protect its citizens.
Chief Mendoza was a real person. The Needville ISD and the great State of Texas have lost a fine lawman. And the casualty list continues to mount in the U.S. by those lawless insurgents who are illegally occupying our land.
This government should be as concerned about the homeland casualties as it is about those casualties killed in lands far, far away, or there will be more Chief Mendozas killed.
sorry lose. since I know you will attack a type.
We live in a small town, and with our new police chief, we now have new officers that camp around town clocking people. Last week my wife got a ticket for going 45 in 30. Guilty as charged. No denying it or arguing it. However she said the officer followed her all the way from the 45 mph zone, thru a 40mph zone, and then into the 30mph zone before he pulled her over. So instead of stopping her on an immediate infraction, he waited to hit her with the big one... Anyway, that's beside the point, albeit contributing to my motive.
So today I stopped between one of the parked officers using his radar gun, and his line of sight of traffic. I then denied any knowledge as to the officers actions or intent, because technically I did not know what he was doing, and then I asked how it was illegal for me to park in a perfectly legal spot.
He threatened to arrest me, ran my license, and then I left. Not the best plan of attack to voice an opinion against "authority" in a small town I suppose, but is that technically illegal?
Also, is there anyway to change the methods or behaviors of the local police department? Via petition, city counsel, something? Anything along the lines of defending ourselves against acts of tyranny? Lol
Thanks for you thoughts...
The mayor of the town i live in has a problem with me, and i dont know what it is but, i moved my horses into my place that happens to be in his neighborhood. he started out accusing me of all sorts of stuff, of course he had a few police officers behind him since he could have them fired. It ended up he and the police chief got an officer to write us tickets for cruelty to animals. which was proven to be a crock of crap. I hired a veternarian to check the situation out that they had complained about and she said it was all fine. Cruelty to animals is a very very harsh accusation. The tickets were completely dismissed.
Any suggestions on what i can do. this mayor acts like he can do anything to anybody because of his position. i've had my horses several years and yes they are allowed in the city limits. my horses are taken care of very well. he made false accusations and the others went along with him for fear of their jobs.
The 911 dispatcher? And why has the journalist that broke the story not lost his job?
Not to mention for the unlawful invasion of a private property?
The nerve of the CBC. Even after the police chief said the allegations by the CBC were false, CBC did not apologize.
I work in Emergency Medicine. There's a rule we follow that says we're not allowed to tell ANYbody anything about a case without telling the patients and their families first.
I'm referring to high profile cases. It's an actual law with us; if we had given information to the media before telling the patients and their families we would lose our jobs immediately.
I was wondering if this also applies to sheriffs and chief of police, b/c I know of a sheriff who betrayed 13 different families by giving non-disclosed information to the national media before he ever gave it to the families.
I'm wondering if he did that b/c he was exempt from the same rule I have to follow about NOT telling media anything before the families no matter who the person is.
We treated a famous baseball player once for a heart attack, and we weren't allowed to give the media ANY information except to say that he's alive and being transported. Beyond that we could say nothing.
Are sheriffs and police chief exempt from that rule?
The sheriff is the one who gave the media the information, for a price no doubt but he happily gave it to them. Not only JUST sharing information but appearing in the article they wrote about it. Hence the price they had to pay to get it.
My friend saw it on the news before ever hearing it from the sheriff's department.
I want to study something that will allow me to be a chief of police or a law enforcement job, but i have bo idea what i should study. Can you guys help me? Thanks
If a woman buys her own things, dresses ladylike, is polite and doesn't think the world owes her anything then I am SURE men would come correct. I know this because when I meet a woman who has her stuff together my eyes open up widely and I just stare at them while they are speaking. Why? Because its so rare and it just makes my day. My police chief was the first woman to make captain and then chief of police for her city, during my interview I caught myself staring at her and wondering why all women couldn't be that way. I read her bio and it was amazing, she is a humble woman as well.
Sadly we dont live in the times that she grew up in where woman had to come correct to hold a high title. Nowadays I truly believe women get hired based on looks, at least when it comes to jobs that involve sales and bribing the public. Society has a way of making everything easy for a woman like ladies night, free drinks, brainwashing young boys into thinking they must be rich to get a woman, brainwashing girls into thinking their husband should have money, convincing men they must hold doors or stop the world to help a woman...etc
We also live in an era where the dress code is completely different, I dont have to imagine how a woman's butt looks anymore. If I catch them on a good summer day they will be wearing something revealing which will allow me to see it for myself. Or I can just go on facebook where I am bound to see some photos with cleavage, of them in the bathroom sitting on the sink or a butt photo. Of course under the photo their will be like 200 degrading comments from men and the woman wouldn't delete any because her thirst for attention overrides her dignity.
I personally dont have a problem with anything I listed above since there are a good bit of women who dont do this. Hell I can even get a foreign woman who comes from a different culture if it gets too bad here in my city. Now what I do hate is when women expect me to respect them simply because they are a woman. While I was at walgreens yesterday this woman cursed out the cashier and it just so happened that she was walking out right behind me. I didn't hold the door for her and she said "So you aint gonna hold the door for a lady?, You must have had a ghetto mom". I simply relied with "My mom isn't a feminist and doesn't think men owe her anything no matter what society says". Sure I could have held the door for her but she just cursed out a college student trying to make a buck working at walgreens. In order to save his job he couldn't retaliate, me holding the door for her would have just made all men seem like slaves with no brain. She was a huge lady with a loose mouth, I am sure she didn't need a man to hold the door for her! Its kinda hilarious when I am at other places and I see men running to open the door for a lady like its a life or death situation.
Anyways what are your views on this topic? As men we have to earn the things we get out of life; should a woman be allowed easier access to things just because she is a female?
My husband wants to become a police officer but I am a little scarse because I dont want anything to happen to him, but I know you always have a risk of something happening to you everyday, but if he became a police officer, what would be the safest job as a police officer you could get?
Why does New York City Police Department have a Police Commissioner and Chief Of Police?
Arent they both the same job so why do they have two different men doing the job?
Im thinking about going into the police field, but when i finish the academy im thinking about trying to catch sexual predators online. What kind of field would that be called?
