Freedom from crime is not free.
  • The degree to which a society achieves public
    order depends in part on the price society is
    willing to pay to obtain it.
  • Resources committed to crime suppressions,
    detection, and prevention.
  • The extent to which people are willing to accept
    a reduction in civil liberties.

Government v. Liberty Tension
  • In a free society there is a constant tension
    between its governments legitimate police
    function and its citizens liberty interests. It
    has and will be with us and it will never go
    away. It is a source of conflict that must be
    understood by both the police and the population
    in order for it to be controlled.

Theories of Police Development
  • Disorder-control Need to suppress mob rule and
  • Crime-control Threats to public order create a
    climate of fear.
  • Class-control Police reinforce class-based
    economic exploitation. Labor provided the fuel
    for capitalism, yet were perceived as dangerous.

A brief guide to police history
  • Ancient Era 3000BC to 400AD
  • Kin policing derived from the power and authority
    of kinship systems rule by elders. The family
    of the offended individual was expected to assume
    responsibility for justice by punishing the
  • Egyptian rulers used elite units of the military
    as bodyguards.
  • In Mesopotamia, captured Nubian slaves were used
    as guards.

A brief guide to police history
  • English Police Reform
  • Bow Street Runners (1st detectives 1750).
  • Creation of the 1st professional police
    department in 1829. Created by Sir Robert Peel,
    the officers were called Bobbies or Peelers.

A brief guide to police history
Sir Robert Peel Known as the father of modern
A brief guide to police history
  • Peel established the Metropolitan Police Force
    for London based at Scotland Yard 1829. The 1,000
    constables employed were affectionately nicknamed
    'Bobbies' or, somewhat less affectionately,
    'Peelers.' Although at first unpopular, they
    proved very successful in cutting crime in
    London, and by 1835 all cities in the UK were
    being directed to form their own police forces.
    Known as the father of modern policing, Robert
    Peel developed the Peelain Principles which
    defined the ethical requirements police officers
    must follow in order to be effective. His most
    memorable principle was, "the police are the
    public, and the public are the police."

The 9 Peelian Principles 1-5
  • The basic mission for which the police exist is
    to prevent crime and disorder.
  • The ability of the police to perform their duties
    is dependent upon public approval of police
  • Police must secure the willing co-operation of
    the public in voluntary observance of the law to
    be able to secure and maintain the respect of the
  • The degree of co-operation of the public that can
    be secured diminishes proportionately to the
    necessity of the use of physical force.
  • Police seek and preserve public favour not by
    catering to public opinion but by constantly
    demonstrating absolute impartial service to the

The 9 Peelian Principles 6-9
  • Police use physical force to the extent necessary
    to secure observance of the law or to restore
    order only when the exercise of persuasion,
    advice and warning is found to be insufficient.
  • Police, at all times, should maintain a
    relationship with the public that gives reality
    to the historic tradition that the police are the
    public and the public are the police the police
    being only members of the public who are paid to
    give full-time attention to duties which are
    incumbent on every citizen in the interests of
    community welfare and existence.
  • Police should always direct their action strictly
    towards their functions and never appear to usurp
    the powers of the judiciary.
  • The test of police efficiency is the absence of
    crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of
    police action in dealing with it.

A brief guide to police history
August Vollmer
August Vollmer
  • Vollmer earned the reputation as the "father of
    modern law enforcement. He was the first chief
    to require that police officers attain college
    degrees, and persuaded the University of
    California to teach criminal justice. In 1916,
    UC-Berkeley established a criminal justice
    program, headed by Vollmer. Vollmer was also the
    first police chief to create a motorized force,
    placing officers on motorcycles, and in cars so
    that they could patrol a broader area with
    greater efficiency. Radios were included in
    patrol cars. He was also the first to use the lie
    detector, developed at the University of
    California, in police work. Vollmer supported
    programs to assist disadvantaged children, and
    was often criticized for his leniency towards
    petty offenders such as drunks and loiterers. He
    also encouraged the training and employment of
    female and African American police officers.

Wickersham Report
  • The Wickersham Commission was established in May
    of 1929 when President Herbert Hoover appointed
    George W. Wickersham (1858-1936) to head the
    National Committee on Law Observation and
    Enforcement, popularly called the Wickersham
  • The Commission was an 11-member group charged
    with identifying the causes of criminal activity
    and to make recommendations for appropriate
    public policy. The emphasis was almost entirely
    on the widespread violations of national alcohol
  • The report was almost entirely written by
    Vollmer. Among other things the report included
    various ideas for police reform including
  • Personnel standards (for cause removal only).
  • Communications and records.
  • Separate units for crimes of vice and juveniles.
  • State information bureaus.

  • Fragmented (UK all agencies administered by the
    Home Office).
  • Federal agencies.
  • State agencies.

    percent of PD personnel.
  • Nationally, police to population ratio rural and
    city is 2.4 per 1000.
  • Indiana has 146 local PDs.

Contemporary Law Enforcement
  • In the U.S. in 2005, the average number of
    full-time law enforcement employees in cities
    (both sworn officers and civilian) was 3.0 per
    1,000 inhabitants.

The Thin Blue Line
  • The "thin blue line" is the collective group of
    law enforcement officers (LEO), correctional
    officers, prosecutors and others in the criminal
    justice system that separate and protect society
    from anarchy. 

Community Policing
  • 1970 through the 80s police generally used the
    professional model.
  • Patrol from cars, aloof, impartial, everybody
    gets the same treatmetn.
  • Rising crime rates
  • Broken windows policing emerged

Broken Windows Policing
  • Clean up the community, people will take pride,
    criminals will be displaced.

Community Policing
  • Commitment to crime prevention
  • Public scrutiny of police
  • Accountability of police action to public
  • Customized police service
  • Community organization

Community Policing
  • Number of police does not lower crime rate or
    solve more crimes.
  • Random patrol neither lowers crime or increases
    chances of catching criminals.
  • 2 person patrol cars are not safer and do not
    lower crime rates.
  • Saturation patrols do not lower crime it
    displaces it.
  • Improving response time has little effect in
    solving crime.

Response Times
  • Police cannot control
  • The time it takes from when the crime occurs to
    when it is discovered
  • The time it takes from when it is discovered to
    when it is reported to police

Crime Prevention Deterrence

Likelihood of being caught
Gravity of harm if caught
Community Policing
Each problem will likely not only involves crime,
but a wider community social issue.
Outcomes v. Outputs
  • Outputs are work product like the number of
    traffic tickets issued, crashes investigated, or
    the number of criminals arrested.
  • Outcomes are the results of outputs. Crime and
    accident rates for example.

    documentary (a writing or other document), and
    testimonial (testimony by witnesses).
  • Circumstantial Evidence - Testimony not based on

  • We will discuss police misconduct and liability
    in more detail later in the course.

News Media
  • The First Amendment of the federal constitution
    provides the news media and all citizens certain
    rights of free speech and press. The media,
    however, does not have an unlimited right to
    engage in the collection of news material.
    Newsmen have no constitutional right of special
    access to the scenes of crime or disaster when
    the general public is excluded . . . Brandzburg
    v. Hayes, 408 U.S. 665, 684-685 (1972). However,
    once the news media has acquired information from
    a critical incident or other source, it will be
    difficult to prevent its publication. Bantam
    Books, Inc. v. Sullivan, 372 U.S. 58 (1963).

  • Federal US Attorney may bring a charge only
    through a GJ Indictment.
  • State Prosecutor may bring a charge either by
    filing an Information or by GJ Indictment.
  • Prosecutor has absolute discretion on whether to
    bring a charge, but must have PC if he decides to
    bring a charge.

  • The FBI defines terrorism as the unlawful use of
    force or violence against persons or property to
    intimidate or coerce a government, civilian
    population, or any segment thereof in furtherance
    of political or social goals. It is widely
    acknowledged that a variety of definitions exist
    for terrorism. Most definitions contain the
    following elements 1) use of violence or threat
    of violence, 2) coercion of a target group 3)
    achievement of goals of a political, a religious,
    or an ideological nature.

Domestic Right Wing Terrorism
  • Generally, there are four elements necessary to
    precipitate violence by domestic hate groups
    1) the group is based on a false premise, such as
    there is no hope for the future 2) the group
    must have a charismatic leader 3) the leader
    will pin-point all trouble as being caused by a
    particular group, such as the Jewish society
    and, 4) some event to rally and excite the group,
    such as a confrontation between police and some
    other right-wing extremist.

Psychological Hostage Takers
  • Suicidal personality. Does not care if he/she is
    killed, and may cause someone else to fulfill his
    death wish.
  • Vengeance Seeker. Driven by an irrational
    purpose. His hostage taking scheme is normally
    well-planned. Incidents involving this type of
    hostage taker pose a high probability that it
    will require a police assault to resolve. The
    vengeance seeker often falls in the category of
    homicide to be.
  • Disturbed individual. This persons hostage
    taking motives and methods may be illogical and
    improvised. There are two common psychotic
    disorders associated with many hostage takers 1)
    paranoid schizophrenia, and 2) manic-depressive

Criminal Hostage Takers
  • Cornered perpetrator. A bank robbery suspect,
    for example, unexpectedly is confronted by the
    police, retreats back into the bank, and has no
  • Aggrieved Inmate(s). These incidents may be well
    planned or spontaneous.
  • Extortionist. The kidnapper is usually motivated
    by greed. The kidnappers location is usually
    not known to police, he usually is not
    contained, and usually only communicates with the
    victims family, even if the police are present.
    Police negotiators seldom talk to the kidnappers
    directly because they usually require the family
    to not call the police as a prerequisite for not
    killing the kidnap victim.

Political Hostage Takers
  • Social protester. This person is likely to be a
    young educated person. This hostage taker wants
    to eliminate social injustice. Normally, this
    hostage taker will take the hostage in a group at
    the location of the unwanted entity or event or
    where the protest is most visible.
  • Fanatic. This person believes in a cause and is
    usually willing to kill and die for the cause.
    This hostage taker can be characterized as an
    Ideological Zealot.

Political Hostage Takers
  • Terrorist Extremist. Hostage taking by terrorist
    groups are well planned, probably brutal, and the
    hostage takers are willing to kill and die. The
    intent of political hostage takers is to get as
    much publicity as possible for their cause. The
    incidents are well planned and organized. In
    political terrorism, the hostage takers attempt
    to demonstrate to the public that the government
    is unable to protect its own citizens. Often the
    demands of the hostage takers go beyond the
    authority of local police. It is the hope of the
    terrorists, who are virtually guaranteed of media
    coverage, that after several hostage incidents,
    that the government will overreact and become
    excessively restrictive with its own citizens,
    thus causing civil discontent.

School Violence
  • Its not your fathers high school was the
    reply when a young man was asked why there seems
    to be more violence in schools today. He
    explained that his high school was large, there
    was very little individual attention (unless you
    were popular, a scholar or an athlete) from
    staff, there was a double standard and open,
    tolerated prejudice against those who were
    somehow different. One group picks on
    another, no one will help you, sometimes your
    thoughts turn to revenge and how easy it would be
    to get even. Dont get me wrong, I dont think
    what they did was right, but I understand why
    they did it.

    regarding the Littleton, Colorado school
    shootings, April 20, 1999.

School Violence Prevention
  • Gun-free zone legislation.
  • Develop safe routes to and from school (police,
    business parent volunteers).
  • Campaign to break the student code-of-silence
    with respect to weapons, et cetera.
  • Metal detectors.
  • Plastic see-through book bags.
  • Standardized school incident report forms.

School Violence Prevention
  • Pre-arranged safe area for evacuated students.
  • School floor plan readily available.
  • Establish a parent staging area.
  • Prohibit book-bags in classrooms. (Leave them in
    lockers.) Weapons are easily concealed in
  • Cellular or digital telephone in the classroom
    for emergency calls.
  • If practical, leave doors to hallways open during
    class so that a passerby could notice and alert
    someone of trouble in the classroom.
  • If trouble or gunfire erupts somewhere else in
    the school, shut the classroom door if evacuation
    is not a safe option. Do not send a student to
  • Effective discipline policy and Alternative
    Dispute Resolution (ADR).

School Violence Prevention
  • Personal-level intervention. Discussions with
    bullies and victims.
  • Establish a method for persons to report
    (anonymously) suspicious activity.
  • Whenever possible, eliminate dark, secluded and
    unsupervised areas.
  • Be aware of who is in the school and why.
  • No one should be able to walk right into the
    office or roam the halls.
  • Set up reception areas for visitors.
  • Install door sensors and cameras (target
  • Establish a safe room. A safe room is a room
    where faculty, staff, students, et cetera can go
    for assistance. This room should have doors that
    will lock, more than one way out and a telephone.

School Violence Prevention
  • Social skills, anger management techniques
    training for students.
  • Establish a zero tolerance policy for violence,
    threatening behavior, guns, drugs and alcohol.
  • Institute an Anti-Bullying Program. Bullying is
    the repeated, negative acts committed by one or
    more children against another. The acts may be
    physical or verbal. Studies suggest that there
    are both short and enduring consequences of
    bullying for both the victims and bullies.
    Chronically victimized students may, as adults,
    be at increased risk for depression, poor
    self-esteem and other mental difficulties.
    Bullies have been found to have a greater drop
    out rate and increased risk for violence and

Organizational Theory
  • Mutual benefit associations (labor unions).
  • Business concerns (corporations).
  • Service organizations (community centers).
  • Commonweal organizations (police, fire, defense

Mutual Benefit Associations
  • Faced with maintaining internal democratic
    processes, providing for participation and
    control by their membership.

  • Main issue is to maximize profits and creating
    and maintaing a competitive advantage.

  • Faced with the conflict between administrative
    regulations and providing the services judged by
    the professional to be the most effective.

  • Key issue is to find a way to accommodate
    pressures from two different sources, external
    and internal.

Organizational Theories
  1. Traditional (most police departments).
  2. Open systems (counterpoint to traditional
  3. Bridging theory (blend both).

Four Functions of Management
  • Planning is the process used by managers to
    identify and select appropriate goals and courses
    of action for an organization.
  • 3 steps to good planning
  • 1. Which goals should be pursued?
  • 2. How should the goal be attained?
  • 3. How should resources be allocated?
  • The planning function determines how effective
    and efficient the organization is and determines
    the strategy of the organization.

  • In organizing, managers create the structure of
    working relationships between organizational
    members that best allows them to work together
    and achieve goals.
  • Managers will group people into departments
    according to the tasks performed.
  • Managers will also lay out lines of authority and
    responsibility for members.
  • An organizational structure is the outcome of
    organizing. This structure coordinates and
    motivates employees so that they work together to
    achieve goals.

  • In leading, managers determine direction, state a
    clear vision for employees to follow, and help
    employees understand the role they play in
    attaining goals.
  • Leadership involves a manager using power,
    influence, vision, persuasion, and communication
  • The outcome of the leading function is a high
    level of motivation and commitment from employees
    to the organization.

  • In controlling, managers evaluate how well the
    organization is achieving its goals and takes
    corrective action to improve performance.
  • Managers will monitor individuals, departments,
    and the organization to determine if desired
    performance has been reached.
  • Managers will also take action to increase
    performance as required.
  • The outcome of the controlling function is the
    accurate measurement of performance and
    regulation of efficiency and effectiveness.

Managerial Skills
  • There are three skill sets that managers need to
    perform effectively.
  • 1. Conceptual skills the ability to analyze and
    diagnose a situation and find the cause and
  • 2. Human skills the ability to understand,
    alter, lead, and control peoples behavior.
  • 3. Technical skills the job-specific knowledge
    required to perform a task. Common examples
    include marketing, accounting, and manufacturing.
  • All three skills are enhanced through formal
    training, reading, and practice.

Scientific Management
  • Defined by Frederick Taylor, late 1800s.
  • The systematic study of the relationships between
    people and tasks to redesign the work for higher
  • Taylor sought to reduce the time a worker spent
    on each task by optimizing the way the task was

Management Science
Uses rigorous quantitative techniques to maximize
resources. Quantitative management utilizes
linear programming, modeling, simulation
systems. Operations management techniques to
analyze all aspects of the production
system. Total Quality Management (TQM) focuses
on improved quality. Management Information
Systems (MIS) provides information about the
4 principles of scientific management
Four Principles to increase efficiency 1. Study
the way the job is performed now determine new
ways to do it. Gather detailed, time and motion
information. Try different methods to see which
is best. 2. Codify the new method into
rules. Teach to all workers. 3. Select workers
whose skills match the rules set in Step 2. 4.
Establish a fair level of performance and pay for
higher performance. Workers should benefit from
higher output.
Problems with scientific management
  • Managers often implemented only the increased
    output side of Taylors plan.
  • They did not allow workers to share in increased
  • Specialized jobs became very boring, dull.
  • Workers ended up distrusting Scientific
  • Workers could purposely under-perform
  • Management responded with increased use of

Gilbreths refinement of SM
Frank and Lillian Gilbreth refined Taylors
methods. Made many improvements to time and
motion studies. Time and motion studies 1. Break
down each action into components. 2. Find better
ways to perform it. 3. Reorganize each action to
be more efficient. Gilbreths also studied fatigue
problems, lighting, heating and other worker
Bureaucratic Model
Seeks to create an organization that leads to
both efficiency and effectiveness. Max Weber
developed the concept of bureaucracy. A formal
system of organization and administration to
ensure effectiveness and efficiency.
5 Principles of Bureaucracy
Key points to bureaucracy
  • Authority is the power to hold people accountable
    for their actions.
  • Positions in the firm should be held based on
    performance not social contacts.
  • Position duties are clearly identified. People
    should know what is expected of them.
  • Lines of authority should be clearly identified.
    Workers know who reports to who.
  • Rules, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs),
    Norms used to determine how the firm operates.
  • Sometimes, these lead to red-tape and other

Administrative Management
  • Seeks to create an organization that leads to
    both efficiency and effectiveness.

Henri Fayol, developed a set of 14 principles
1. Division of Labor allows for job
specialization. Fayol noted firms can have too
much specialization leading to poor quality and
worker involvement. 2. Authority and
Responsibility Fayol included both formal and
informal authority resulting from special
expertise. 3. Unity of Command Employees should
have only one boss. 4. Line of Authority a clear
chain from top to bottom of the firm. 5.
Centralization the degree to which authority
rests at the very top
Fayols Principles
6. Unity of Direction One plan of action to
guide the organization. 7. Equity Treat all
employees fairly in justice and respect. 8.
Order Each employee is put where they have the
most value. 9. Initiative Encourage
innovation. 10. Discipline obedient, applied,
respectful employees needed.
Fayols Principles
11. Remuneration of Personnel The payment system
contributes to success. 12. Stability of Tenure
Long-term employment is important. 13. General
interest over individual interest The
organization takes precedence over the
individual. 14. Esprit de corps Share enthusiasm
or devotion to the organization.
Open Systems Theory
  • Focuses on the way a manager should personally
    manage to motivate employees.
  • Mary Parker Follett an influential leader in
    early managerial theory suggested
  • That workers help in analyzing their jobs for
  • The worker knows the best way to improve the
  • If workers have the knowledge of the task, then
    they should control the task.

Open System
An open system interacts with the environment. A
closed system is self-contained. Closed systems
often undergo entropy and lose the ability to
control itself, and fails. Synergy performance
gains of the whole surpass the components. Synergy
is only possible in a coordinated system.
Mayo The Hawthorne Studies
Study of worker efficiency at the Hawthorne Works
of the Western Electric Co. during
1924-1932. Worker productivity was measured at
various levels of light illumination. Researchers
found that regardless of whether the light levels
were raised or lowered, productivity
rose. Actually, it appears that the workers
enjoyed the attention they received as part of
the study and were more productive.
Theory X Y
Douglas McGregor proposed the two different sets
of worker assumptions. Theory X Assumes the
average worker is lazy, dislikes work and will do
as little as possible. Managers must closely
supervise and control through reward and
punishment. Theory Y Assumes workers are not
lazy, want to do a good job and the job itself
will determine if the worker likes the
work. Managers should allow the worker great
latitude, and create an organization to stimulate
the worker.
Maslow The Need Theory
Need What it means
Herzberg Motivation-Hygiene Theory
Focuses on outcomes that can lead to high
motivation, job satisfaction, those that can
prevent dissatisfaction. Motivator needs related
to nature of the work and how challenging it
is. Outcomes are autonomy, responsibility,
interesting work. Hygiene needs relate to the
physical psychological context of the
work. Refers to a good work environment, pay, job
security. When hygiene needs not met, workers are
dissatisfied. Note when met, they will NOT lead
to higher motivation, just will prevent low
Equity Theory
The organization as an open system
Bridging Theories Contingency Theory
Assumes there is no one best way to manage. The
environment impacts the organization and managers
must be flexible to react to environmental
changes. The way the organization is designed,
control systems selected, depend on the
environment. Technological environments change
rapidly, so must managers.
Bridging Theories Theory Z
William Ouchi researched the cultural differences
between Japan and USA. USA culture emphasizes the
individual, and managers tend to feel workers
follow the Theory X model. Japan culture expects
worker committed to the organization first and
thus behave differently than USA workers. Theory
Z combines parts of both the USA and Japan
structure. Managers stress long-term employment,
work-group, and organizational focus.
