Law Enforcement Questions and Answers (Q&A)

I think that being shot in the face is extreme. Criticism should be allowed due to the first amendment rights. However, it is difficult to criticize someone’s job when you have never done that job. It is more beneficial to criticize law enforcers, if you have been in law enforcement. That is not to say that only those with law enforcement experience can criticize, I just believe that you should take into account all sides of the situation before you criticize someone.

You would not want to be criticized about your job by someone who has little to no knowledge of what you do. Therefore, I think that people are too quick to judge others and need to research more before they make a critical statement especially to law enforcement.

The important thing to remember about the FBI or other Federal agencies is that they can go anywhere in the United States. The local police department can only fight crimes within their local district. Sometimes, they can go slightly outside of their local district but for the main part, they stay within their local area. Federal agencies like the FBI usually deal with crimes that are considered white collar crimes.

When someone becomes a police officer they may want to move up the ranks or be promoted to higher levels within the police department. However, first they must become a police officer. Usually captains and other high ranking officials within the police department don’t get their jobs without being an entry level police officer first. They must serve their time working as a police officer in order to understand every aspect of law enforcement.

Once they have done that for several years they have gained the experience that they need to move up or be promoted to a higher level. To become a captain in a police department a police officer would have to have an impeccable record.

There is a strong connection between law enforcement and serving in the military. One thing that a similar is that they both fight crime or terrorists in their jobs. So they have a lot in common. Sometimes when people get out of the military, they may decide to become a police officer. They may feel that the military has prepared them for this. Also some veterans of the military had to leave the military due to injury.

They cannot pass the physical training. However they still had the physical stamina to become a police officer. So to them, this is the next best thing. That is why there are many veterans who are now police officers in America. However, sometimes, police officers come from all different walks of life.

When people think of militarization of police, they may get scared due to the equipment that is being used by the local police. In this case, the equipment would include tanks, military weapons like assault rifles and possibly machine guns. These are used by the SWAT when there is a very dangerous situation. The police department that would use these things would need to be very trained so that they can fully understand how to use these equipment. They should also know when to use them.

They would not be needed in every situation. Society would benefit from the militarization of police during certain situations like a hostage situation or terrorist attack. When this occurs, this type of force would be needed, but not in all cases.

SWAT stands for Special Weapons and Tactics. They are a team of trained police officers that are used in extreme situations where there is a large number of people or it is a very dangerous police mission. Usually, it is done when there is expected to be a lot of gunfire or bombings. Sometimes, hostages are taken by bad people and the SWAT are called in order to stop the danger in the situation.

You can usually determine who is in SWAT based on what they are wearing. They wear bullet-proof vests and helmets. They are probably the best police force in the world, but there are probably other countries that have specialized police teams that are used only in specific situations.

Every situation is different. Also, people must take into account that the media covers the news that they want to cover. Unfortunately, I don’t believe events have changed from twenty years ago to what has happened recently with police shooting unarmed black men. I believe that this events are continuously taking place throughout time, but they were only recently exposed on television due to the media coverage.

There is discrimination from police towards all different types of people when you look at every case. I believe it depends on the situation involved. As a matter of fact, there is a larger percentage of unarmed Native Americans who are killed by police than African Americans. Each case would need to be analyzed to determine whether discrimination and poor training is the reason.

Police officers are held accountable for many things. Over the past several years, updates have taken place in order to prove or disprove the events that took place between an alleged criminal and the police officers. Sometimes, people will take videos of the police and how they handle taking down alleged criminals. Many people believe that police officers shoot their guns every day while they are working their shifts.

However, that is not the case. People believe this because of what they see on television. Most police officers will never shoot their gun against a person, other than during practice, ever in their careers. However, if a police officer does shoot their gun, they will probably have to document how many shots were taken.
