POLICING 2 Abstract Policing in America has changed over the course of the last decades. Policing was inspired by the London Metropolitan Police by a man named Robert Peel. Robert Peel created the nine principles of policing. One of the principles was the command of temper. In this paper, you will read about why the command of temper is essential to a law enforcement officer and how it should be taught in police academies today.

POLICING 3 Policing in America The command of temper is essential to a law enforcement officer. Think about it. If an officer had a bad temper, things would go very bad very fast. If an officer had a good temper, he or she would have complete control of the situation and things would not escalate since the officer is paying attention and is keeping calm. An officer with a bad temper would be more likely to draw their weapon opposed to an officer with a good temper. Overall, anybody with a good temper is more likely to handle situations better than someone with a bad temper.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
