In many countries around the world, the public and the disciplined forces are poiseddangerously against each other. The public seems to lack trust in the police force, and the forcefeels hated, their efforts unrecognized, and unappreciated in their work. Many people attributethe discord to society’s entitlement, but they are unwilling to dig deeper and establish the rolethat police play in causing the tension that has existed between them as they play their role ofprotecting the society and the society (Torrens & Torrens, 2003). Sir Robert Peel’s policingprinciples summarize the mission as well as purpose reminding them whom they are renderingservice to and the reason for their existence. Summarily the purpose of the police is not only preventing crime but also maintainingorder in society. Further, Peele states that it is the public that approves the effectiveness of thepolice in performing their duties. Always the police need to secure willful cooperation from thepublic so that they can have their willful adherence to the law instead of using force or deceptivepowers; they also need to have respected the public. Additionally, Sir Peele also believes that thepublic’s cooperation diminishes significantly with the need to use force, and they need to avoidaccommodating the public opinion, should always strive to deliver impartial service(Torrens,

Further the police should use force to an extent necessary to restoreorder and obedience to the law if the police at independently and void seizing their power fromthe judiciary. For instance, in the U.S, the police and other law enforcing agencies must not bemembers of the judicial system. The police need to maintain a cordial relationship with thepublic to cement the relationship between them and the public. After all these, the efficiency offthe police can be evaluated by the physical absence of disorder or crime. In the U.S, communitypolicing is includes the use of Peele principles. Another example can be the police continuingracial attacks where they beat kill individuals motivated by racial hate. This is gross breaks manyPeele principles.
