I don’t know what the fuck goes here… Maybe my name and the university like the title page on an essay assignment?
Speaker notes: Preventative patrol was designed to have officers walking or driving around so to hopefully prevent crimes from happening and stop crimes in that are in progress such as burglary/theft, the use of drugs or assault/ domestic violence. Also, it makes for a faster response time to emergency calls if there is already a unit in route or in the area.
- Attempts to prevent crime
- Interrupts crimes that are in progress
- Makes it possible to respond quickly to emergency calls
Routine incident response
- Rutine incident response is responding to non emergency calls
- Document information
- File a written report
- Response to a scene where human life is in danger
- Crimes in progress, Major traffic accidents, officer in danger, Medical emergency
- Takes priority over all other police work and demands immediate response
- Discovering, collecting and presenting evidence
- Determining what happened and who is responsible for the crime committed
- Stands to reduce or eliminate chronic offending in the community
- Recording a pattern
- Using programs such as SARA, CAPRA and MADD
- Human Resources
- Record Keeping
Routine incident response is an officer responding to a non emergency call such as minor traffic incidents. Once at the scene they collect information, document the information and write a detailed written report to be filed with the information.
Speaker notes: An emergency response takes priority over all other police work because it means that a human life including other officers is in danger. Officers must respond immediately and can involve things such as CPR, hstage negotiation, natural disasters and the physical capture of suspects.
Speaker notes: Criminal investigation is the process of discovering evidence, collecting the evidence and presenting the evidence to determine exactly what happened, how it happened and who is responsible when a crime has been committed. First responders are typically the first ones to do the investigating.
Speaker notes: Problem solving is recording patterns and chronic offenses. It is using programs such as SARA (State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement), CAPRA (Probabilistic Risk Assessment) and MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) to prevent and reduce repeating offenses in the community.
Speaker notes: Support services assist in keeping police and law enforcement agencies running smoothly. Services include dispatch, training, human resources management, property and evidence control and record keeping. With the assistance of each one of these support services the overall police mission is achievable.
Ancillary operational strategy
A police dispatcher must operate a multi-line telephone console, translate information into codes, provide emergency medical dispatch and crisis intervention services, ask vital questions to provide prearrival instructions to responding units and monitor and respond to a variety of technical systems and alarms. That isn’t all their duties and responsibilities just a quick summary, but without dispatch officers and emergency response teams wouldn’t know what situation they were walking into, what to expect when they got there and how to quickly handle each situation before arrival.
Each law enforcement strategy is important and necessary. With the use of operational strategies law enforcement agencies can prevent and deter criminal activity, respond to non-emergency calls in an efficient manner, respond to emergency calls, investigate crimes and work on reducing reoccurring offenses. Every law enforcement agencies goal is to reduce crime rates and help as many people as possible while making the community a safer place. They use operational strategies to make this goal achievable.
