police crime control strategies
1. How did the events of the 1960s change American policing? Is it likely that there was an interactive effect from the events? Which event likely exerted the most profound influence?
2. It was noted that in controlling the civil rights and Vietnam protestors in the 1960s, American police did not kill a single protestor. At what point in a civil protest are the police in a free society justified in using physical force? If force is used, what limits should be placed?
3. What most likely explains the precipitous drop in crime in the 1990s, as well as its continued gradual decline since then? Why is a definitive explanation so difficult to come by?
4. Describe which components of community policing were tested in each of the four empirical assessments that attempted to link the implementation of the respective components to crime reduction.
A minimum of 1,000 words (total assignment) and three scholarly sources. (references do not count towards word count!!!)
Minimum word count, then it is considered “average” work, which is a “C”.
