Questions related to Policing
That in observed instances and Perception of Corruption index reports, Police have detained motorists or coerced them into parting with bribes. That in many countries, Police lack the necessary tools for on-the-spot inspection and preservation of evidence e.g cameras or online mobile devices. That even when the Police cause a vehicle to be driven to Police stations, the Police stations lack the necessary equipment to provide Inspection as anticipated in respective Traffic Acts. That on matters Traffic, the Police stations become centers of extortion, frustration and inconvenience as opposed to service and facilitation for the benefit of motorists. That in many countries, there is no tracking of how many stops and inspections Police conduct in their daily routine thus leaving room for abuse of these random checks and stops.
This project seeks to establish the circumstances that lead to the lack of transparency in Traffic policing activities

Hi Everyone, the above question is the basis of my final assignment in my Policing and Society Module, due for submission by close of business on Friday 14 May.
Any last minute tips or sources or fresh research would be welcome.
Nigeria is a federal-state but the policing system is decentralised. This entails that state governors do not have much role to play in policing their respective states. Hence, the quest to examine the system of policing in other federal states to juxtapose it with what is obtainable in Nigeria with the view to strengthen the policing institution in terms of efficiency and effective policing.
Is there a real necessity and emphasis for a "neighbourhood policing" approach to be adopted nationally across all forces? How big of an impact does it have on crime? Public perception /expectations of policing? If utilised resourcefully will it have any impact on the engagement of the public?
It is perceived that literature on policing and policing related matters in Sri Lankan context are rare. It is noted that a bigger vacuum to be filled by research studies covering the above. There should not be waves but ripples to initiate the endeavour. I am soliciting ideas to take small steps.
Feel free to share your idea regarding the core of the issue
Butt, U. M., Letchmunan, S., Hassan, F. H., Ali, M., Baqir, A., & Sherazi, H. H. R. (2020). Spatio-Temporal Crime HotSpot Detection and Prediction: A Systematic Literature Review. IEEE Access, 8, 166553-166574.
This paper was published on the 8th of September 2020. The authors state in the abstract:
“The authors were unable to find a comprehensive study on crime hotspot detection and prediction while conducting this SLR. Therefore, to the best of author’s knowledge, this study is the premier attempt to critically analyze the existing literature along with presenting potential challenges faced by current crime hotspot detection and prediction systems.”
Below I enlist relevant papers omitted by the authors, including our SLR paper of the same scope:

I wonder whether you can do a thorough review circle from submission to acceptance in 7 days and if incorrect information should be corrected.
Finally, what is the opinion of the authors and the Editor-in-Chief on this matter? We asked for it but received none.
Specific interest on the concept of digital policing include: evolution, definitions, objectives, principles, weakness/critics and it's applications to real life situation.
Here I am trying to ascertain facts that the contribution of graduates to the SAPS would impact policing, literally the possibility of professionalism in the SAPS, the process and implementation thereof
I am interested in the impact of adversity on individual and community resilience against crime and victimisation. There is a breadth of literature examining Adverse Childhood Experiences, Brain Injury, Neuro-Deversity, and Poverty in relation to the links between inequality and crime/victimisation/exploitation. The emerging picture seems to indicate that adopting a trauma informed approach to policing helps with early intervention problem solving and prevention.
Hi, I´m searching for studies, that analysed different social media accounts - instagram - of criminal offenders, to see if there are equal ways of using, if the have the some way to talk over pictures and so on. Perhaps for predictive policing ?
The use of big data to target groups with advertising is a mild form of manipulation but considering all the things that it could be used for, good and bad, how can a set of ethics be maintained until there is some way of policing the internet. There is a very fine line between using big data to protect people to using it to control people.
I'm just writing a draft about monitoring events in real-time to make a decision model for policing purposes. I need bibliography to add to my article and check that my proposal is not new and interesting.
In Europe, Africa and other parts of the world, we can observe some kind of supranationalisation (to different degrees, but still). Is it a possible scenario that in some decades, the world will be ordered by five to ten supranational players: EU, AU, Eurasian Union, ASEAN and a policized NAFTA - or is a drawback to nationalism more likely?
Need to establish a relationship of feeling of safety in people in nation and its effect on the following (independently):
Attracting investments in real estate
Increasing spend by people in the country.
im writing my dissertation as a systemic review on public perception of the UK police
my research questions below:
1) What impact does demographics have on public’s perception of police legitimacy? Are certain segments of the population more likely to perceive the police in a negative way?
2) Are the effects of demographic variables moderated by neighbourhood composition?
3) Does exposure to the media have an impact on the public’s perception of the police? Is this impact similar across different demographics and neighbourhood contexts?
4) How does neighbourhood policing or community-based policing improve the public’s perceptions of the police? Has this strategy been effective across different demographics and neighbourhoods?
any feedback much appreciated
A colleague and I are in need of collaboration with a psychologist knowledgeable with current sophisticated statistics. In part, we wish to perform a multi-factorial analysis on an Interpersonal Attitudes test with 180 items and a N of several hundred. We wish to relate it to attachment research findings. Initially, this is to validate the instrument, which incidentally is clinically powerful in therapy. About half of the tests were done by police officer candidates.
Next we want to use it and some other measures to track interpersonal attitudes and community policing effectiveness in police officers over the first 5 years of their careers. We would like to see policing improve relationships within communities. So, plan includes officer selection as well as adjusting the field training and supervision.
Could anyone give me some good reading material for PEELS NEW POLICE and the difference between our police now? -peels new police and policing today.
I have been looking for a questionnaire that will capture African-American parents' sense of safety in the world given recent social and political events (e.g., Black Lives Matter movement, shootings related to police brutality). Recent searches have yielded results related to sense of safety in one's neighborhood, safety climate at work (particularly in healthcare settings), etc. but nothing that really seems to address my question. I understand I will not likely find a questionnaire that directly relates to current events, but a questionnaire that addresses the construct generally would be useful. Any help would be most appreciated.
I am wondering if there are other ways of examining value for police, beyond the standard monetary-based ROI analyses? Specifically, how can I demonstrate value for police who assume the roles of other social services due to those services being cut/not available? Thank you in advance.
I am elaborating a study about fraud in exported vehicles in the European Union with a real case in the south of Spain with police data. This is my first paper in this area and I need somebody interested in this study that can collaborate for publishing together.
It is likely that theoretical explanations around social conformity and deviance can be usefully tested through reference to information on criminal law enforcement by professionalised police. Eg Hart and Kelsen, eg, relate conceptually the 'rule of recognition' and Pure Theory to the level of official concrete decision-making. It would appear that comparative police data is relevant for supporting and testing theoretical frameworks. In turn, it would be interesting to be able to assess experience of policing by consent by correlating to broader theoretical narratives - eg poststructuralist and interpretivist theories.
Whilst there is concern about the existence of ADHD there is equal concern that, as it does exist with regard a type of diagnosis relating to a varied set of behaviours, many of which are considered undesireable without their being any specific intent. Such that recent focus has been on the prison population and how many may or should be diagnosed with ADHD but what of those under community supervision? Does anyone know of any policies/practices which are in current use - UK prefered but International data eqally invaluable.
Considerable amounts of fieldwork are undertaken to discover and then analyse comparative data on the highly contingent incidence and perception of crime and disorder in different settings and jurisdictions. The role of professionalised policing is a core element in this work. It would be interesting to explore how far various professionalised policing styles and methods have been found to be effective in providing specific, definable impacts that benefit social identity and wellbeing by successfully improving public safety.
