Ethics And Criminal Justice Policy

Lately there has been a lot of talk about “defunding” the police. The general idea is that law enforcement handles a lot of duties that are not law enforcement-related and they are not the most appropriate ones to handle these duties. By taking away some funding from law enforcement and reallocating it to more appropriate resources, we have the potential to better benefit the community as a whole by better addressing these issues.

After researching the issue, choose one function of law enforcement that you consider a non-law enforcement duty, but which is commonly performed by law enforcement.

Address the following points in your post:

·       What duty did you select and why?

·       Describe why this duty is important to perform (even if not by police).

·       Who should alternatively perform this duty and what challenges might they encounter?

·       Explain how to make the transition from police to the other organization you identified (keep in mind law enforcement might not be able to stop performing the duty until the other organization is fully fulfilling the role).

Your paper should not be solely opinion, but also reinforced with academic research and evidence.
