Police Codes of Ethics
Virtually all police departments have some kind of formal "Code of Ethics," or guidelines that tell the members of the police force what is and is not acceptable behavior. The people these officers are sworn to serve and protect expect ethical behavior from those officers, and in fact there are times when public or individual safety depends on the officers' determination to act in ethical and honest ways. Meanwhile, we hear horrific stories about police force abuse, including cases where police officers have been caught selling drugs to the incident in New York some years ago where a suspect in custody was terribly abused while in custody.
Of course, the great majority of police officers go to work every day and are routinely prepared to put their lives on the line for others, conduct their professional with dignity and good judgment, and never once commit an offense that….

Police Organization Operations
The police department is one of the most significant departments in the supervision, maintenance and implementation of the societal order. It is the one that is entrusted with most of the communal maintenance of peace and order through the court orders, the constitution and the police daily routines of community service.
The policing system in the U.S.A. has changed quite significantly from the time immemorial when the work of controlling crime was left to the police alone. At the initial times there was no touch with the community though the community knew that there was a police department in the U.S.A.
In the course of their work, the police were instructed to randomly change routes whenever the inc-charge felt was appropriate to do so. This was aimed at reducing corruption and curbing the frequency of police involvement in drug ring running and cover-ups.
Ironically this idea of rotational posting backfired since….

Public Strategic Finance
When one sees talk or analysis about strategic finance scenarios and tactics, this talk usually centers on private or publicly trade corporations in the private sector as opposed to agencies and power structures in the public sector. While it is certainly worthwhile to extend that focus, there are a lot of public agencies that have to make use of strategic finance tactics as well. Indeed, public finance strategy is probably more complex given that public agencies are often at the mercy of the amount of tax money that does (or does not) come in and the money that is allocated towards their work by the people holding the purse strings. The author of this report shall focus on police agencies in particular because the financing and execution of their work has been something that much more people are focusing on nowadays given the recent surge in violent crime….

Washington D.C. Police Department
Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department
Washington D.C. is the nation's capital, and thus holds a special responsibility in terms of providing the ultimate image of safety and enforcement of American ideals. The Metropolitan Police Department of Washington D.C. is in charge of keeping that esteemed community safe. Today, the department is in the top ten largest police organizations throughout the country (Metropolitan Police Department 2012). Being "founded in 1861, the MPDC of today is on the forefront of technological crime fighting advances, from highly developed advances in evidence analysis to state-of-the-art-information technology" (Metropolitan Police Department 2012). Its organization is typical of local police agencies, having various departments under the control of the Chief of Police; yet, the Metropolitan Police Department also faces its own unique set of challenges and rewards based on the distinct communities within it.
The organizational structure of the department is typical of other local police….

Part II crimes that the Uniform Crime eporting Program identifies include an additional of 16 types of crime that range from minimal assault to disorderly conduct to vandalism. Part III crimes, on the other hand, include all the criminal activities that are beyond the scope of part I and part II criminal offences. These statistics show that there is a consistent pattern with the most and the least common offences maintaining the statuses throughout the period. From the statistics, it is apparent that from 2005 to 2008, part I offences are the most common as compared to part II and part III offences. Similarly, part II crimes are more common than part III offences in the years given. Among the part I offences, theft rates highest, throughout the four-year period while homicide has the least number of cases reported throughout the same period. For part II offences, vandalism is….

The department also received the nationally sought-after recognition of being accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) standards. As the 1990s came to a close, Miami experienced a continuing crime rate decline. In 1997, the crime rate dropped by 5%, and in 1998, the drop was another 11% in major crimes, followed by the same percentage decline in 1999. At the same time, the department received large federal grants to support its efforts, in 1997 receiving $19 million in grants, and in 1998, $45 million in grants (History of the MPD, 2007).
Not all assessments were positive, though. Sugarman (1998) writes that the city is a microcosm of cultural diversity but that it is also "plagued by corruption, racism, poverty and drugs" (para. 1) and that this might show what will soon happen to the ret of America.

Metropolitan Police Departments Can Use Traditional Marketing Techniques to Improve Public Relations
The days when people trusted police officers simply because they were police officers are over. In today's society, the image of law enforcement has been damaged by incidents like the taped Rodney King beating, the Rampart corruption scandal, and other incidents of excessive force, racial profiling and corruption.
Even the courage and heroism shown by New York police officers following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11 has not been enough to change the general negative image of police forces in metropolitan areas. Nationwide, police officers are adapting a traditional marketing approach to policing in an effort to fight this negative image.

Similiarities of Local State
Police Department Organization Paper
he Differences and Similarities of Local State, and Federal Police Agencies
Since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the implementation of our nation's laws has gotten an pivotal proportion of notice. Some people who say, contend that the federal government does not have sufficient resources to enforce certain laws of the land and that state and local law enforcement units should be exploited even more. here were quite a number of proposals introduced over the years that claim that our country should strengthen the role of state and local officials in the enforcement of laws to protect our nation. his proposed amendment has prompted many to examine what role and differentiation and similarities that federal, state and local law enforcement agencies should have in the enforcement of laws in our nation, if any.
he Differences and Similarities of Local State, and Federal Police Agencies
The majority of all states operate statewide government agencies that provide law enforcement obligations, which include investigations and land patrols. They are usually called State Police, State Patrol or Highway Patrol, and are usually part of the state Department of Public Safety. In the calculation, the Attorney General's office of each state has their own state offices of investigation. In Texas, the Texas Ranger Division satisfies this place though they have their explanation in the era before Texas had even become a state. Numerous departments of State Governments can have their own enforcement division such as what are called the capitol police, Campus Police, State Hospitals, Departments of Correction, Water police, environmental Game Wardens or Conservation Officers (who have the whole police powers and statewide dominion). In Colorado, for example, the Department of Revenue has its own investigative division, as do a lot of the government subsidized universities.
Local Police Agency
Police departments are handled by the separate governments of the jurisdictions who pay them. The Police chief is paid by the local Mayor, city manager, or city council. The Chief of a local police department gives an answer to whoever employed them and can be exposed to a guaranteed level of political power chosen to them by the mayor, city manager, or city council (Stephens, G, 2003). A lot of cities do not have a local Police department or even have an extremely small police department in this situation. The county Sheriff's subdivision would be the department accountable to the subdivision (Linkins, 2007). The local law enforcement role comprises traffic assignment, patrol work, offering broad general assistance, and
Patrol and Policing
Within the police department there are numerous divisions which are responsible for different police functions. Among these divisions are directed patrol and proactive policing. Proactive policing involves police working in groups from outside the police department so as to respond to an issue that is emerging as opposed to responding after a crime has already taken place. This is the theory and practice of the employing of criminals before they actually commit a crime and through this there is prevention of the crime from taking place in the first place. It involves the use of statistics and mapping so as to maximize the patrol efforts that will ensure the community is a safe place. The police are organized in decentralized way such that every police officer has a neighborhood patrol that has its own objectives and goals to deal with. The police officers should therefore feel as though….
