It is safe to say that one of the most arduous and taxing, both physically and mentally, occupations in the country right now would be that of a police officer. Just imagine having to witness half of the atrocities these brave men and women must endure through, knowing that to them it is “just another day at the office.” Unfortunately, police officers are not, by any means, impervious to these scenes and some are even traumatized by it. This is why it is up to their fellow officers, their brothers and sisters of the badge, to assist them in coping with their experiences. After all, who else could understand what they are going through if not the people they trust with their own lives out on the streets?
Growing up is exciting and very scary. Being young is fun while it last but eventually everyone has to grow and go in to the working field. Law enforcement has been a big topic whether it be bad or good things said the law enforcement is always brought up. When I was young I took a fast interest in business. The moment I decided I wanted to be a cop was when I met my dad’s best friend that was a cop, and businessman. All any person wants in a career is to make a decent living and do something that they enjoy doing. I’ve always enjoyed helping people that needed help, the Kansas career pipeline let me take some surveys and showed me that I enjoy helping people more than I enjoy building myself something, which I believe that is true.
“...These youths have been shown to engage in similar strategies for meeting basic needs and to experience similar problems; drugs and alcohol abuse, poor physical health, victimization and societal alienation. Homeless youths are identified as those who spend extended periods of time without permanent or stable residences, often with little family contact. Youths who become immersed in 'street' culture comprise a homeless youth population highly susceptible to peer affiliation and acceptance. Emotionally distressed and unsupervised, homeless youths often seek supportive others and may quickly invest in new, but harmful, relationships in an attempt to be accepted and reduce feelings of isolation. Relationships with other street youths quickly become the primary source of social support.” Following are the factors affecting the critical issue of ‘homelessness’ around the globe.
Professions are guided by codes of ethics to aid them in performance of their duties and to ensure maintenance of high standards of conduct. Police officers are faced with a maze of obligations in the performance of their official duties. The “Law Enforcement Code of Ethics” and “Canons of Police Ethics” were created to make explicit the conduct considered appropriate for police officers and to guide them in the performance of their duties. Although police have these guides, many are faced with ethical dilemmas, also known as a moral dilemmas. This mean the officer is challenged to make a decision which sometimes conflicts with societal and personal ethical morals and values and provide no

In Jerome H. Skolnick’s “A Sketch of the Policeman’s ‘Working Personality’”, Skolnick explores the view that because their role contains the two important variables of danger and authority, officers develop a distinctive view of the world compared to those of other professions. He then goes on to illustrate how, what he calls the “working personality”, affects the actions of police officers.
I can now make a nursing diagnosis to better understand precipitants of homelessness and develop a level 4 partnership for collaborating, involves exchanging information, altering activities, and sharing resources. The implementation of the 5 steps of the nursing process, as well as the possible solutions of outreach, qualitative and quantitative strategies, targeting of prevention resources, and development of novel interventions, is the approach (Montgomery 2013 et al).

Last week, I along with 100 others had to spend several hours standing in front of police station trying to log a FIR for an incident that took place in my society. Cops were quite uncooperative. They gave several excuses ranging from "it is not permitted by law" to "there is no use of that". It was quite frustrating - I wondered how cops can be so insensitive towards us. No wonder why people do not like engaging with cops unless they are forced to. Can cops really be our friends? Ever?
Numerous unjust losses covered by the media over recent years that involved African Americans and police officers are continuously dwelling in the minds of many today. All of these incidents involved excessive force by officers and many involved racial profiling as well. Following these incidents, many American’s have vocalized their loss of trust with law enforcement officials through protest marches and riots. Everyone is demanding a solution for healing these poor relations between police officers and African American communities.
The definition of human relations from the book is everything done with each other as human beings in all kinds of relationships.
Today, law enforcement agencies have many issues with diversity. With a rise in the shooting of black men at the hand of police officers, law enforcement agencies have been trying to increase the number of black officers employed with their agencies. Police administrators should ensure that the communities that they protect have representation on their local police force, and that all officers are mandated to attend and complete annual diversity training courses.
