Focus on the furure

Focus on the future What challenges relating to crime and violence became predicted for the future, particularly the three crime accelerators: drugs, alcohol, and crime?
In the future, it became predicted that crime rates and violence will reduce due to a number of issues. First of all, federalization and militarization in policing will help at establishing stringent measures towards the distributers and consumers of the commodities, to curb the use of drugs and alcohol. Furthermore stringent laws become established, and the police left to conduct operations similar to military (Scafer, 2007).
Why are the concepts of federalization and militarization in policing problematic to some groups and individuals?
The problem with the introduction and incorporation of concepts of federalization and militarization in policing will be the police using extra force while dealing even with minor problems. In having the skills used by the military, a lot of people may be subjected to mishandledment by the police (Scafer, 2007).
What evidence becomes cited in terms of creeping federalization and militarization in policing as well as in the criminal law, particularly since 9/11?
Ever since 9/11, a lot of situations that policing have become seen doing involved using techniques from the military when dealing with internal operations. The police force has become forced to start adopting means used by the military in the past years in order to sharpen the way in which they handle people. With the increase in terrorism levels in the country, the police force had to learn some means of handling situations like those used by the military (Scafer, 2007).
How are SWAT teams involved in this debate?
The Special Weapons and Tactics unit, should less be dispatched on civilians since they also incorporate a lot of their training stuffs that might impeach some of the legal rights of the citizens.
What is the relationship between police education and training, why is it seen as a critical matter for the future of policing, and what support becomes raised by Buerger for college-educated police officers to meet the needs of the future?
Police education becomes defined as a process of acquiring or imparting particular or general police-related knowledge which leads to obtaining a given academic degree. Police training can be defined as acquiring or imparting skills or knowledge necessary for police work and does not lead to any issuance of degree, but can have some form of certificate (Smith, 2007). Both prove to improve the quality of policing. An educated, and a well trained police handle situations presented to him or her in a more orderly way as he or she understands the rights of the person arrested (Wright, 2002).
