ISCRETION / ACCOUNTABILITY / FUTURE OF POLICING

In this course, we have discussed the issues surrounding police use of discretion and explaining how/why officers make decisions. In your paper, please address the benefits and problems associated with police use of discretion. Which current policing strategies have the most potential for controlling officer discretion and providing accountability, and which have the least, and why? How might this be impacted by the issues currently facing law enforcement? Integrate multiple readings into your paper (across multiple modules). Which authors would support your arguments, and which would disagree?

Please write a 6-10 page paper

The final paper is due BEFORE MIDNIGHT on WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 8, 2012.
