Sir Robert Peel, known as the ‘father’ of modern policing, set the foundation for organization and structure in modern day policing in London. The United States followed behind shortly thereafter to enlist a police force for order, organization, and service. Peel set up “Peel’s Nine Principals” which the United States still abides by to this day. The ‘father’ of policing has helped our government to overcome harsh judgment, corruption, and harsh actions, and has made it possible for citizens of this society to bond with local law enforcement. This has allowed our law enforcement to handle situations appropriately and incorporate bigger agencies to handle more diverse problems throughout the
Asha Kaur John Jay Sociology 101 Daniel Mann 11/23/15 Robert Peel’s Principles Robert Peel is probably the most influential name associated with modern day policing. In the year of 1829, he formed the first modern metropolitan police department which the modern day police were known as “Peelers,” or “Bobbies.” He set up principles, which are called Peel’s Principles of Law Enforcement that have influenced that has set the foundation to how to keep the safety of fellow citizens as well as justice for actions. These nine principles set up what he envisioned the metropolitan police to stand for and he wanted people to mold themselves to the conformity of the nine principles.
Sir Robert Peel is known in the books as the founder of the first form of an English police department: the London Metropolitan Police. This was after his London Metropolitan Police Act passed in 1829, giving greater power to the English police force and establishing what he is known for
Since a very young age we have been taught to put our trust into police officers. If we are in distress, they are always there to help since it is their job to protect and serve the common citizen. So what happens when the individuals we are supposed to trust to bring justice are the ones causing the injustice we see in the news? Recently, several police officers have been under fire for their excessive use of force. The number of casualties caused by police officers in the recent years have citizens demanding a reform in the system that officers work under.
Sir Robert Peel had a huge impact on England, American, and the world policing. He is also known as the father of modern policing. In 1829 Peel persuaded the Parliament of England to create the London Metropolitan Police, which is now recognized as the first modern police force. Peel created three elements he incorporated into London Metropolitan Police. First was mission. The mission was crime prevention and what can be done to prevent crime from happening. The second was strategy. Peel created a strategy to that he had hope would deter crime. The third was organizational structure. Peel set up hierarchical organization, a standard uniform, ran designations to police officers, and a chain of command similar to the military’s (Walker & Katz, 2011).
One of the services that need to be disciplined is the Paramedic's service The police should always set a good example to the public showing that they are working productively and are reducing crime in the community making the public feel safe.
Police have many roles to take on an everyday basis. The main goal for an officer is to keep criminals off the streets and to try and maintain a safe environment for people to live. Many people disagree with some of the decisions officers make to enforce these rules and causes a lot of controversy. Today many people don't respect our police officers because of actions made by others. A major issue today is police use of force, stop and frisk.
According to one of Peel’s principals, the real key for policing is "The police are the people and the people are the police". Peel believed that prevention of crime could be accomplished without intruding into the lives of citizens. Sir Robert Peel's first principle was that, “The basic

By this, he employed his first principle that the “basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder.” In this, Sir Robert Peel instituted a force that served as uniformed police called “Bobbies” or “Beats.” This form of policing is well-known today and has had a significant impact on American policing. Law enforcement agencies still practice the use of “Bobbies” and “Beats” but now refer to this method as police patrolling with the goal of preventing crime, getting to know the community, and establishing the trust and safety of the public (Siegel, 4th Ed). This brought about the next two principles, established by Peel, which stated (2) “the ability of the police to perform their duties was dependent upon the public approval of police actions. (3) Police must secure the willing co-operation of the public in voluntary observation of the law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the public.” This laid a serious impact on American policing and its history; society today, as in the past, dealt with the importance of diversity and the need for police to comprehend the different cultures, races, and religions that scattered the communities in which they patrolled. Police were expected to participate a multicultural training and education that prepared them for these situations. Peel believed that if the police could understand
There are many strategies that the police have come up with to communicate with the citizens in their community one of these strategies is community policing meaning, “A collaborative effort between the police and the community that identifies problems of the crime and disorders and involves all elements of the community in the search for solutions to these problems.” (Schmalleger) Community policing changes the way the police do their job because it brings in the trust of the people towards the them, they feel good knowing they are not alone; they know who to count on. The police want the community to feel safe and this is a way to bring in positive views towards them. Not only does this help reduce crime, but also the people give feedback
The history of modern law enforcement began 166 years ago This case study also documents the first organized battle to the basic concepts of community policing. In the 1970's a new type of policing came about called "team policing" There were numerous reasons why this type of policing failed including: social climate, more patrol cars and less foot patrol, contradiction of the basic beliefs of professionalism, and isolation from the community, which makes crime control more difficult. Like team policing, community policing is rooted in the belief that the traditional officer on the beat will bring the police and the community closer. Instead of just responding to calls and arresting criminals, community policing officers would devote a great deal of time to performing social works and working independently and creatively on solutions to the problems on their beats.
Robert Peel is probably the most influential name associated with modern day policing. In 1829, he formed the first modern metropolitan police department in England where his officers were known as “Peelers,” or “Bobbies.” He set up principles, which are called Peel’s Principles of Law Enforcement that have influenced modern day law enforcement. These nine principles set up what he envisioned the metropolitan police to stand for and wanted officers to mold themselves to them. If Peel’s principles were incorporated in modern police departments than encounters could decrease, police brutality wouldn 't have existed and the relationship between the police and citizens today could have been stronger and more trustworthy.
“Police are people and the people are the police” CJA 214 January 9, 2012 Jeremy Leach In Bury, Lancashire, on February 5, 1788, the “Father” of modern day policing was born. Through his work and studies of public service, Sir Robert Peel developed principles and policies that have impacted what is considered modern day policing. He created what is commonly known as the Peelian Principles. While Sir Robert Peel’s principles still stand out in law enforcement policies today, nine points of policing stand true today.
