Handbook of Police Administration

James Ruiz, Don Hummer
CRC Press, 2007 M09 19 - 472 páginas
As figureheads of the most visible segment of criminal justice, today’s police administrators are forced to tackle challenges never faced by their predecessors. Heightened local and global threats, advanced technologies, and increased demands for procedural transparency require new levels of flexibility, innovative thinking, and the ability to foster and maintain relationships within the community. It is more crucial than ever to recruit and retain capable leaders to guide law enforcement agencies at this pivotal time in history.

Covering areas such as leadership in policing, use of force, and understanding how the law shapes police practice, Handbook of Police Administration examines the key topics that must be considered by law enforcement professionals. Recognizing that police leaders need the skills and traits of a politician, accountant, attorney, field lieutenant, and futurist, the authors cover a variety of contemporary issues surrounding police administration and management. Divided into five thematic sections, it considers the legal aspects of overseeing a public sector organization, as well as how research, technology, and training can assist modern police leaders in performing their duties more effectively and efficiently. The book covers problematic issues such as officers accepting gratuities, undercover work, and the time criteria required for promotional consideration. It concludes with a chapter comparing administrative issues in Australia with many of the subjects previously addressed with regard to U.S. protocol.

Using a range of perspective, differing viewpoints, and controversial issues, Handbook of Police Administration provides a springboard to stimulate discussion at the cutting-edge of debate in the dynamic field of policing.

The police no longer honour their badges by their universalized nakedness practices and rectum and genital intrusions they are impossible to ladies, and to families, and they have advanced from undressing to total nakedness suspects of body crime who should be forced differently to confess to their crime have as a point of police science imposed Naked Undressing on all their investigation suspects often without their knowledge otherwise they would have to sho/ot them dead for modesty including virgins and pregnant mothers as was done some time ago in the USA when a policeman shot dead a fleeing pregnant mother, for a driving offence, this has extended to imposing Naked Undressing on all Police Detainees upon Arrest, and advanced to random Nakedness imposed on any member of the public at will, including Virgins, at mortal gunpoint, with refusal resulting in being shot dead for Modesty and medical ressurection usually forbidden, this has further advanced to Rectum and Anterior Colon intrusion by police not only of suspects of this form of Body Crime which should have been prison punished to start with as a separate crime, with explanation of its gravity, and dangers it poses in general, who should have been differently forced to confess to this crime type, but to all arrests including of Virgins, and to the public at random including Virgins and pregnant wives, including by policemen not only by policewomen and now has extended to violation of not only suspects by over-ambitious or deviate investigators often not of the police, but to all investigations and all persons during arrest including pregnant mothers who can get shot for their body fear and virgins, and they are not allowed to resist or complain, or they will be shot dead or rectally poisoned dead for this and this is the truth including of the latest practice rules it appears in the latter case, and mutual violation may be forced on persons arrested in each other´s company
Also body needs liberties may be deprived to detainees which should be avoided other than in some unusual and incredible emergencies of criminals practicing Shame Crime and should be circumvented even in such cases for Police Purity
because the Police must be as in the Epistles of St. Paul for perhaps my father Herbert Otto Altar had once studied or entered to be a police man or even a police officer just and saintly among us, and to add not capable of baseness, or unwonted brutality, but just and professional and also police punishments to spare prolonged prison imposed nakedness can eventually homogenize the systems in undue fashion, they are not judges nor a/n accepted mode of punishment
so all other matters are dwarfed although their importance is recognized and bribes risk entirely any citizen´s credibility with the police.
The intimate violence of the police results in investigational failure and corrupt tolerance of suspects.
I hope but cannot see any reference in this work to this important ruinous flaw in the very modern institution of the police
