Unit 8 Assignment CJ340 06 Professor Anthony Scarpelli Peter bisher January 06, 2011 My first interviewee officers jack Davidson, patrolman from Somers point police department.
When interviewing Patrolman Davidson, I found the following to be his impressions of the police force in general.
In law enforcement it seems that there are so many reasons to do the right thing.
The reasons began with public opinion and also should include their influence on the youth who will be growing up to be citizens of the city, state, or country.
The city was different and smaller (about 80,000 vs.
155,000 today) when I was riding my bicycle all over East Salinas.
Unfortunately though some people are just unscrupulous, and will be corrupt no matter how much education and training is provided.
These people do not have any place in police work and need to be removed from their prospective forces as quickly as they are identified as troublemakers who will not change with training.
If police officers do not have any training or input from others in how they are expected to behave, then their only source of information is their own belief structure from their personal experiences.
When an officer is trained with ethical knowledge they have a better foundation in which to develop ethical behaviors.
