1. Why is there a need for proper relationships between the police and the community? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this understanding? It is important that police have a good relationship with the community because if the community views them as mean or untrusting then it will cause a lot of problems. Police officers should be viewed as a part of the community themselves. The police and the community can work together in order to make neighborhoods safe for everyone. The more faith the community has in the police, the more helpful they will be and there will be less hostility. Without the community, police will have a very hard time keeping the peace or solving any crimes. 2. Identify at least two different communities outlined in Ch. 9 and describe the relationship of the police to these communities. One community that has had significant problems having a positive relationship with police are minority communities. It doesn't matter the race or ethnicity of a person because it appears that minority groups of all types have felt mistreated and misunderstood by police.

    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.
