CRIJ 2323 - American Policing

The course is a comprehensive study of the history, development and current perspectives involving American policing, community policing, law enforcement ideologies, administration, methodologies and operations.  The course curriculum includes an in-depth analysis of the historical influences of American law enforcement which includes an overview of the contributions made by national and international law enforcement officers (e.g., Peel, Hoover, Pinkerton, Parker, and Vollmer).  The curriculum involves understanding the parameters of federal, state and local agencies to include The Department of Homeland Security.  Furthermore, in depth analyses are conducted in regards to comprehensive study/discussion of current events, political and media bias and exploitation.   Extensive discussion/research is conducted on police organization and administration at the municipal and county levels to include patrol methodologies, strategies, community-oriented policing and problem solving.  Contemporary issues (social and multicultural), current events, civil liability, ethical accountability and behavior, corruption, use of force, personnel issues and job related stress factors are thoroughly examined and discussed.  The influx of illegal immigration on American law enforcement, drug cartel influences, anti-terrorist operations, hate crimes and the homeless are analyzed and discussed.  The course discusses in depth as to what constitutes good and bad law enforcement leadership.  Special police topics such as the LAPD CRASH Rampart unit are examined to identify the breakdown in police-community relations and police administrative and tactical leadership.   This class is a concentration requirement for criminal justice students.
