ORGANIZATIONAL MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS PAPER 2 When one examines how the United States of America is policed, one will find that the infrastructure of police agencies has many similarities, but is different in many ways as well. One must first realize that police agencies exist at every level of government, including local, state, and federal levels. Police agencies at the local government level can include city police departments and sheriff’s departments. Police agencies at the state government level include state troopers, also known as Highway Patrol. Police agencies at the federal government level can include the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Drug Enforcement Administration. At times all police agencies can work together to accomplish certain goals, but for the majority of the time, the police agencies at the local, state, and federal levels work separately. When this student examined the functions of local police agencies, as described in week two’s objectives of Criminal Justice Management Capstone at the University of Phoenix class, this student found that local police agencies provide the community with a number of functions. Some functions of the local police agencies include keeping the peace, investigate crimes, and accidents, enforcing laws, addressing the taxpayers concerns, and making the community feel safe with the police agency’s limited jurisdictions. (University of Phoenix, 2015). One will find that local law enforcement agencies provide many functions. One function is to keep the peace within the agency’s jurisdiction. Local police agencies keep the peace within their jurisdiction by enforcing laws. If a local police agency did not enforce laws, the agency’s jurisdiction would become chaotic. Another function of the local police department is to investigate crimes and accidents. Local agencies investigate crimes and accidents because the taxpayers of the community pay for the above-mentioned services. Because local taxpayers fund the local police forces, the citizens of the law enforcement agency’s jurisdiction want to feel safe.

ORGANIZATIONAL MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS PAPER 3 This student believes, that most law enforcement agencies’ main goal is to give the community they protect and serve the feeling of safety. If the citizens who reside in a town feel safe and secure, those citizens believe the local law enforcement agency is doing their job properly.

    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.
