Police and policing Modern policing: Wilson and Kelling stressed the importance of controlling minor crimes and disorders in an effort to curb more serious crime. History of civilization - societies have sought protection for their members and possessions; members of one's family provided this protection. 1 st stage: informal policing, where all members of a society shared equally in the responsibility for providing protection and keeping order. Development in Policing Style: 2 nd stage: transitional policing, occurred when police functions were informally assigned to particular members of the society. 3 rd stage: organic societies, different from mechanical societies, more specialized Policing was required. Authority: All police systems rely on state authority. (the source of state power ultimately represents the basis of police authority as well)
Policing Making citizens feel safer and improving their quality of life should be the goal of police. In 1970s and 80s, The philosophy of community policing is built upon the premise that reducing citizens' fear of crime while forming a partnership between the police and the community Tactics utilized in this philosophy include foot patrol, problem solving, police substations, and community groups, among others. Police force ; Constabulary, Police, Sheriff, Gendarmerie Preventing crime thorough preventive patrol Better to prevent crime than to punish the culprit
Policing Communist: obtains legitimacy through the communist political party, is organized as a centralized, armed militarized force, and performs the functions of crime control and enforcement of state ideology The continental: Have similar organizational structures and functions as the communist model, however the continental model obtains its legitimacy through the central government. Anglo-Saxon: Obtains legitimacy through local governments and is based in law. This model is organized as a decentralized force that is armed in democratic countries. Models of policing (Shelley) Colonial: Establishes legitimacy through the colonial authority. Functions: crime control, order maintenance, and welfare and administrative responsibilities.
Para-military Forces It is a force whose function and organization are similar to those of a military force, w/o having the same status. The term uses the Greek prefix para- (proximity), also seen in words such as para-medic. The term paramilitary is subjective, depending on what is considered similar to a military force, and what status a force is considered to have. Its nature therefore varies greatly according to the speaker and the context. Examples : Northern Ireland, “any illegally armed group with a political purpose” Northern Ireland Colombia, “illegally armed groups which do not combat the govt (for example United SDForces) of Colombia, while illegally armed groups rebeled against the government, such as Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, are referred to as guerrillas.United SDForcesguerrillas

Nation-state and its boundary Is the entire geographical area owned by a state like the way every individual property owner owns his person and the property ? (inherited, worked for, or gained in voluntary exchange) Many nation's boundaries were: -acquired by force and violence, -interstate agreement w/o the consent or knowledge of the people. -boundaries shifted many times -Are not there your own people living out side your boundary ? Is it just to proclaim for “territorial integrity”? Is not it truly ludicrous? Will total privatization help solve nationality problems? (open borders, free immigration, global village ….will it help?
Security -Securing what? Territory within the boundary? People living within the boundaries? Territory and People living within the boundaries? Do we have to protect other things as well? What are these other things ? Security: A condition of being protected against danger or loss. Protection from dangers that originate from outside. Individuals or actions that encroach upon the condition of protection are responsible for the breach of security. Not only safety but security! (keep in a safe(no harm) place but protect (like the padlock, vigilante) National Security: National Security:“Maintain the survival of the nation-state through the use of available power and the exercise of diplomacy” -Who decides as to what should be protected? How can we ensure total security ? -Who will be accountable for the failure of this (future and life of its citizen)?
