Peacekeeping and Order Maintenance
Although police officers are often portrayed in society as having a “crime fighting” image, peacekeeping and order maintenance occupy a majority of their time. Calls for service that relate to arguments, noise complaints, or public nuisances are part of a patrol officer’s regular activities.
Domestic violence and the police response to such disputes have been controversial for at least twenty-five years. As a result, the public’s response to domestic violence has led to:
New laws and policies
Increased criminal penalties
Treatment programs for the ones involved (batterers and victims)
Police department policy changes
On the basis of your readings from your textbook and South University Online Library, respond to the following:
Discuss the challenges faced by police officers responding to domestic violence calls and their options for dealing with them.
Discuss whether a mandatory-arrest policy is a good or a bad idea and why?
