5 Police and policingHistory of civilization - societies have sought protection for their members and possessions; members of one's family provided this protection.Development in Policing Style:1st stage: informal policing, where all members of a society shared equally in the responsibility for providing protection and keeping order.2nd stage: transitional policing, occurred when police functions were informally assigned to particular members of the society.3rd stage: organic societies, different from mechanical societies, more specialized Policing was required.Modern policing: Wilson and Kelling stressed the importance of controlling minor crimes and disorders in an effort to curb more serious crime.Authority: All police systems rely on state authority. (the source of state power ultimately represents the basis of police authority as well)
6 Policing Preventing crime thorough preventive patrol Better to prevent crime than to punish the culpritMaking 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 communityTactics utilized in this philosophy include foot patrol, problem solving, police substations, and community groups, among others.Police force ; Constabulary, Police, Sheriff, Gendarmerie
7 Policing Models of policing (Shelley) 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 ideologyThe continental: Have similar organizational structures and functions as the communist model, however the continental model obtains its legitimacy through the central government.Colonial: Establishes legitimacy through the colonial authority.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.Functions: crime control, order maintenance, and welfare and administrative responsibilities.
8 Para-military ForcesIt 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”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.
