Police officers should not be working within school systems because it creates a fine line between school and criminal punishments in the eyes of an officer, singles out minority groups in terms of work, and feeds the School to Prison Pipeline issue. The power that an officer holds can be abused and within their work in the school systems, it is being mismanaged and incorrectly used. In addition, students of minority races and those with disabilities seem to be singled out frequently and targeted by officers. Hence, the increase of police officers working within schools feeds the School to Prison Pipeline and fortifies it. By police officers carrying out arrests while following the conduct of zero tolerance, students can be arrested for simple
By the 1980’s,problems with gang violence led to dress codes that attempted to do away with gang colors.Dress codes have routinely been used to prohibit clothes with threatening language,insulting racial slurs,alcohol or drug related messages.Uniform policies began to spread in the late 1980’s and then steadily increased throughout the 1990’s. Though parochial and private schools have a long history of mandating school uniforms”.School uniforms are always discussed in Chicago 's public schools.Why? Due to the fact that school officials feel as if these set of rules will help improve their schools. Something about CPS makes people cringe when brought up to a suburban family or school official.The majority of Chicago 's public school require uniforms yet little to no learning is going on in these classrooms due to their surroundings. A 2013 study reported in the NCBI Social education by Burdick-will, concluded that “For many student attending public high schools,violent events either at school or in their neighborhoods are frequent and routine.This is clearly not the case in all parts of the country and means that the experience of students in chicago may not be representative of students nationwide.It is unclear whether the effects of school
In Punished: policing the lives of Black and Latino by Victor Rios Oakland boys are studied in an ethnography. The purpose of the ethnography was to examine the how the boys interacted with themselves, the education system and the justice system. The purpose of this essay is to review what Rios has witnessed and recorded, in his book, and look through the lens of different sociological theories and theorists. These Theories and theorists Rios himself used when describing the behavior.
1) relevant actors and their interests 2) required resources and who might provide them 3) facilitators and barriers likely to be encountered 4) reasonable time frame The policy was implemented (uniforms were adopted) but the expected change did not occur. The theory that violence occurs due to style of dress is wrong. There must be some other cause of school violence, which would require a different policy to address.
Discretion is defined as “ power of free decision or latitude of choice within certain legal bounds” ( merriam-webster dictionary ).Police have discretion in most jobs they take on while out in the field. This could range from a wide variety of choices from
Jessica Couture 7/22/2012 CJS/210 Final: Future of policing paper The biggest issue that effects policing is technology. Technology is at a rise and growing at an incredible rate. Technology advancement gives criminals a whole new way or an easier way to commit crimes. Eventually technology is going to take away jobs from our police officers and other individuals working in law enforcement. We are no longer going to need police officers out on patrol monitoring traffic, we have high speed cameras to detect incident detection, and vehicle counting, traffic flow monitoring and even people who violate traffic laws like speeding, running red lights and stop signs.
Future of Policing University of Phoenix CJS/210 4/27/2013 The field of police work is constantly being forced to develop and improve its protocols, procedures, and practices in an effort to keep pace with the ever-changing society in which it operates and criminal behavior it seeks to eradicate. While the history of policing has been marked by substantial changes throughout time, the work of modern-day police officers and officials demonstrate some of the most substantial adaptations to its surrounding environment that the field has ever seen. In order to understand where the future of policing is heading, it is important to first understand these current trends that are affecting the current landscape of the profession. By
Policing is a job that is displayed in media daily through reality crime shows, the news, and dramatized Television, but what does a police man really do. I talked with a lifelong friend and thirty-one-year cop, Rene Calderon to figure out what being a police officer is truly about. As well as being a Sargent for the HPD airport division, Rene has five brothers that are all also police officers. All together the brothers have 200 combined years in police work under their belt. In our interview we discussed the pros and cons of policing, what the long-term policing career is like, and what true policing is versus the way the medias portrays it, and the future of polcing these main points helped me get a firm grasp on what policing is truly
African American boys are doubly displaced among society. Ann Arnett Ferguson says, “they are not seen as childlike but adultified; as black males they are denied the masculine dispensation constituting white males as being “naturally naughty” and are discerned as willfully bad”(page 80). These African American boys are thought of being two things, either a criminal or an endangered species. They are not allowed to be naughty by nature according to society, but rather there naughtiness is a sign of vicious, inherent, insubordinate behavior. African americans are seen as endangered victims, which makes them criminals. Ferguson states, “It is their own maladaptive and inappropriate behavior that causes African americans to self-destruct”(page 82). There are two versions of childhood that are contradictory to each other. A real child would be seen as a “little plants” ready to grow up accordingly which is what white men were like to educators. On the other hand the African American boys were seen as children who are powerful, self centered, and have an agenda of their own. These black boys are seen as adults from such a young age, they don’t have time to be young and grow up because others make it seem like they are already fully grown. This drives them in the path to do bad things and make bad decisions.
In my opinion I think that there is a problem with the policing in America. Due to the fact that the police would rather implement force then to talk through the situation. I think that if more police were like Chief of Police Chris Magnus that crime would go down and that the use of force would not be necessary. I also think that police officers should not have guns on them. One reason being that if they get knocked out in a violent situation someone could take their gun. Another reason is that by having a gun they are already making the problem worse because the majority of people feel threatened by guns.
With the gang activity growing throughout the 80’s school officials realized that implementing uniforms or strict dress codes may help combat the problem with gang apparel in schools. Previously dress codes have been seen in the form of uniforms or strict rules in parochial, private and public school systems across the country. In private schools, uniforms were first implemented to mark a student’s social status (Motsinger par 8). Many people, according to Alfie Kohn, author of What to Look for in a Classroom…and Other Essays most people associate uniforms with, “the good ole days [when uniforms] symbolized [. . .] obedience.” Uniforms were a sign of respect, children respected their elders and presented themselves well while wearing them. As stated by Anderson in “School Dress Codes and Uniform Policies,” “[t]he first public school known to have adopted uniforms was Cherry Hill Elementary in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1987. In 1994, Long Beach (CA) Unified School District (LBUSD) was the first school district to adopt a districtwide uniform dress code policy” (par 11). During the Clinton administration the talk of school dress codes and uniforms in public schools first surfaced after his State of the Union Address in 1996. Since Clinton’s speech, schools all around the country have revised and implemented new dress code policies.
Uniforms have been around for centuries, from back in the day when women had to wear dresses or skirts and men had to wear pants. To now where students and employees have to wear certain pieces of clothing. People dress to express themselves, schools tell their students to be who they are and to be proud; however, when the student tries to do so they are sent home or held in the office which not only takes away their rights to express themselves, but takes them out of class. According to Friedrichs, “A shocking number of students are actually sent home or suspended for breaking dress code, which means even more time out of class.” A school's job is to prepare children for their futures, that can be quite hard when the student is not there to learn. Dress codes can be overwhelming to maintain. A student's wardrobe isn’t going to be full of polos and khakis because they most likely do not wear polos and khakis outside of school. Dress code should not be as strict, hoodies should be allowed, tank tops should be

The effects of teachers, like these, are poignant and painful, damaging the youth that will soon become the leaders of the community, or hindering them from taking that role. When they face adversity from those who should be protecting them and making them better, they are set up for failure. This failure, if left unchecked, will eventually spiral into a vicious cycle- thoroughly hurting the individuals and the community as a
Will Galloway, Chairman of the South Carolina Teenage Republicans, in a Jan. 5, 2017 article, "Will Galloway: Just Say No to School Uniforms," available at fitsnews.com, stated:"Rather than promote an orderly and disciplined student environment, mandatory uniforms would cause massive student disobedience and take away valuable instruction time. If one or two students wear something inappropriate, administration will handle it. The student in question will change, be disciplined, and return to class without disrupting the school day.
