06:16 Achieving Professionalism: 10 earmarks of a profession o an organized body of knowledge with definite techniques of procedure. o A code of ethics o A group of trained men o An organization drawing its membership from this group and comprising a  significant part of them o Definite qualifications for admission o Freedom to seek employment in any state or city where such services are  required o Established methods of recruit training o High prestige o Merit promotions o Recruitment by open competitive examinations A profession possesses specialized communicable techniques based upon:  (1) prolonged intellectual training (2) a content of training that includes  generalization or principles (3) the application of the principles in concrete  professional practice; a complex process requiring the exercise of disciplined  individual judgment. American Police Administration at Mid-Century Sir Robert Peel gave London its disciplined, efficient, uniformed police in 1829  and the larger American cities soon organized similar bodies. There is no uniform pattern of police administration in the United States-  whether at the federal, state or local level. The elimination of weak, inefficient units, the creation of ad hoc police districts  in metropolitan areas, the centralization at the county or state level in  appropriate areas of the country and the abolition of competitive and  duplicating enforcement agencies at all governmental levels will not alone  solve our policing problem, reduce our police expenditure, and relieve us of  the burden of crime which levies so huge a burden upon our economy and  impinges so violently on our lives.
