… ¶ … Establishing a Community Policing Program in an American Municipality Today

From a law enforcement and community relations perspective, it would just seem to make good sense to place as many police officers "on the beat" in any given community and this, in fact, has proven to be the case in cities across the country. Police officers on bicycles, all-terrain vehicles and horseback are becoming an increasingly common sight in the nation's park, beaches and public areas as well as homeland security has assumed an increasingly important role in law enforcement in post-September 11, 2001 America. Unfortunately, in some cases, community policing initiatives have met with a wide range of obstacles and constraints to their implementation from both external and internal sources. To this….

Scandals in the accounting profession have led to a sense of mistrust among the public. Investors depend on the accuracy of accounting statements to make key financial decisions.

Attempts to restore public trust in the accounting profession can be divided into two general categories. The first are legislative actions that impose stricter regulation on the accounting profession. The PCAOB is one of these measures. The PCAOB serves as an oversight board for…. [read more]

Program Attendance Policy Proposal Term Paper

… " (Garry 1996).

For these and other reasons it is accepted that the standards and practices of the alternative school institution must offer a more flexible and/or more non-traditional set of standards. These standards must promote growth in the learning environment rather than the re-institutionalization of earlier penal style standards and codes that failed to meet the emotional or educational needs of special needs students. Of course directed consideration of safety within the school setting is also important a prison like inflexibility does not serve the needs of student, staff or community and in fact directly contradicts the goals of the P.A.S.S. program.

Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counseling Essay

… The professional strengths that I have acquired and have seen counselors make use of their field of practice are elaborated in the following paragraphs. Meanwhile, for professional growth it is important that professionals should analyze the limitations pertaining to the field of practice.


When I make an analysis of the professional strengths related to the field of counseling I find that if a counselor has the ability to make effective cognitive interventions, it can be one of his or her most valued professional strength. Many accomplished counselors like Iwona (2012) believe that if you have the ability to make cognitive interventions, you will be able to modify the thoughts as well as the drug-related beliefs of the clients as well.

Markeaton Park Is Derby Case Study

… While there are a number of activities for children now available in the park, of course, these are not keyed to its historic features, a point that should be remedied (Adams 1991).

The above suggestion is one example of the overall shift in operational vision for the park. Whenever possible, the historic footprint of the hall (as well as older building on the site) should be highlighted if park officials are to benefit from strategies that other historical parks have followed (Adams 1991). Such highlights can include relatively simple and inexpensive restoration of flowering borders to species appropriate to the era in which the beds were first laid out to moving the tennis courts from their current position where they interfere with viewing some of….

Museum Methods Term Paper

… Although I agree with the basic structure of this definition, I would prefer more emphasis on the level of required professional standards necessary to designate an institution as a museum. Many non-profit institutions are established to enrich our society including, schools, libraries and community social and cultural organizations. Many of these institutions are essential in the preservation of values and identity and education of our citizens. The term museum should not be generally applied to these entities simply because they offer public enrichment under a non-profit designation. Museums should also be very clear in determining the scope of the institution; their role should be defined with clarity and selectivity, and with a recognition of wider social and cultural purpose. Attracting individuals with comparable interests to…. [read more]

Students, the University Experience Term Paper

… Often, in inner-city and urban grammar schools, the relative dearth of financial backing deprives the children thereof of the extra-curricular benefits inherent in suburban schools. Artistic pursuits often are the victim of low funding, leaving more abstractly inclined children without an appropriate outlet. This can both manifest itself negatively in the child's disposition, behavior and grades and in the child's missed opportunity. This could be a route through which to uncover obscured talents in underachieving children and to provide greater access to success for those already cognizant of their abilities. And it goes without saying that providing inner city children with any structured activity after-school when circumstances may have not otherwise provided such a luxury could prove to be a valuable influence.

Republican (GOP) Primaries of 2012 Research Paper

… GOP Primaries /

The 2012 Republican primaries have been exceptionally heated this election cycle. Compared to four years ago, John McCain had already clinched his nomination by sidelining Mitt Romney by this point and seemed to be in a good leveraging position against the still competing democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. This year, however, Mitt Romney is back in the contest and is facing off against three Conservative candidates, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum. Of these three, Rick Santorum has given Mitt Romney the most trouble in his two-year march to the nomination, and has spent countless hours trying to frame Mitt Romney as an opportunist politician who is spending his way to victory. All three Republican candidates…. [read more]

Size/Cooperative Learning and IT's Effects Term Paper

… African-American students seem to profit more from the SAGE experience than white students when compared with non-SAGE students. The achievement gap between African-Americans and white students widens each year (Smith, 2003).

It has been noted that class size initiatives have enjoyed wide spread support from parents, teachers, and the general public. People will still believe that smaller class sizes are a good idea and teachers report experiencing lower levels of stress and job dissatisfaction with smaller classes. This is primarily because they are better engaged with each student, and therefore, student motivation increases and discipline problems decrease. Parents believe that a teacher's individualized instruction leads to improvements in a child's academic performance. This is apparent because teachers with smaller classes have more time to….

Drug Courts the Department Term Paper

… The treatment providers are now left free to maintain the treatments and therapy necessary for the success of the program. It is their duty too to maintain communication with the Drug Courts about the progress of treatment and the resulting rewards and sanctions that would be awarded to the persons in the program. The stupendous success of the programs implemented by the Drug Courts of the U.S.A. may be due to, in large part, the strict implementation of rules and regulations to be followed by the drug users when they are within the program. The participant does follow the rules, of his own volition, and thus increases the effect of the program. 9

The rules are clear and stable and the participant's progress is measurable…. [read more]

Aboriginal People Are the Indians Essay

… The commitment of philosophy is woven in the ideal of capitalism in a free market economic system, to frame our political understanding of justice. Other ideas revolve around enjoyment of the same rights, benefits, and economic opportunities just like other citizens of the state (Turner, A.D. pg. 28).

Another Aboriginal theory of justice is the theory of restorative justice. Restorative justice is a form of criminal rehabilitation as opposed to punishment or criminal justice. Restorative justice is more concerned about how we should respond to the wrongdoings of criminals. We live in a relational universe, and harm done as a result of criminal acts threatens or sometimes destroys these relationships. It diminishes social worth of victims and offenders because it disconnects them with the rest…. [read more]

Nursing Is Changing. Recent Healthcare Essay

… I witnessed this fact firsthand during my own pregnancy, an arduous ordeal that left me bedridden for the duration of the three trimesters. I have rarely been in the position in which I have had to depend on the help of others for an extended period of time. However, it was my nurse practitioner, not my obstetrician, who continually worked with me to aid in the successful delivery of my daughter. She was instrumental in exemplifying the role of nurse practitioners, who are charged with not only determining a course of action to assist a patient, but also with partnering them in a way so that they deal with the individual vicissitudes that accompany most treatments. I felt very fortunate to have a nurse practitioner…. [read more]

Grief Schiz Precautions and Procedures Essay

… As depression itself has become better understood, so have its effects -- such as the potential for suicidal thoughts and actions -- and its mechanisms, and thus more effective ways of handling depression at all ages and for a variety of causes have also been developed (Beck & Alford, 2009; Bhatia & Bhatia, 2007).
