Policing in America Today – This is the title of your paper and should be included on the ‘cover page’
Please submit a three to five page paper that will discuss the above listed topic. Your paper will first define issues facing the police today (SP 2021). Discuss the positive changes that you see taking place as well as the negatives of the changes expected. Discuss what would happen if the police were ‘defunded’ (some may already be by the time you do this assignment), the impact on the law enforcement agencies, the police themselves, the people they serve. . Large city police departments are seeing record numbers of retirements and officers just leaving to change careers. Police academy classes are being cancelled due to not being able to fill the classes with recruits. Do you think that a police department could exist with less officers? What types of services could they/would they provide? How would this impact society as a whole?
