Safety in Public Schools

...Running Head: Safety in Schools Safety in Schools Strawberry Rosario ENG 215 Research and Writing Professor Allegra Strayer University June 13, 2011 Safety in Schools Today, school officials deal with violence, drugs, weapons, gangs, shootings, murders and theft to name a few, the public school system should prioritize security services on campus. Parents want to feel that their children's school is safe and secure. Since violence in schools has increased drastically, police officers, video surveillance, and metal detectors are security tools that should be used and installed in schools to improve a safer environment for students. School Resource Officers (SROs) are often sworn police officers employed by the local Police Department and assigned to patrol public school hallways full time. In larger jurisdictions, these police officers may be employed directly by the school district (Kim, 2010). Since violence is common especially with high school students, these police officers help the students understand that they are in the school to protect them but at the same time to enforce the law and good behavior (Geronimo, 2010). School Resource Officers are responsible for criminal law issues, not school discipline issues. They work to prevent juvenile delinquency through close contact and positive relationships with students. In addition, the SRO’s develop crime......

Early that morning America watched in horror as the unthinkable happen. The twin towers pillars of American freedom, and capitalism that had stood tall over the skyline of New York City N.Y. were attacked. The skyline was not the only thing that would be changed that day. The possibility of terrorist acts at large sporting venues has caused owners and managers to take a different look at their facilities. They had to consider the possibility of terrorist activity, vulnerabilities, and protection of the venues and lack of security measures. Managers and owners had to develop operational plans and incident preparedness for emergency incidents. Sporting venues are packed on a daily bases with thousands of persons who could easily become the victims of a terrorist plot. A simple thing as going to a ball game would never be as......

...Current Event – Role of Special Interest Groups Paper AJS 552 Week 4 The Death Penalty - Public Safety vs. Individual Rights Introduction This paper will focus on the criminal justice system, public safety and civil rights in specific relation to the death penalty as a form of punishment and its effects on society. The execution of criminals and the effects on society are most intriguing and can be debated upon both for and against the issue give a thorough elaboration on criminal executions and the effects on society. In this day and age, research not only illustrates that the death penalty is complex, in more ways than one, but has also raised questions about its relations to deterring crime and the financial impact it has on society. Using current and historical information, such as articles and scholarly articles, to support why this research is important and possible methods society could use to help improve this controversial debate. Summary The Orange County register printed an article on the death penalty and possibly being considered as immoral. “While the commission drops the dime on the mind-numbing cost of administering the death penalty, it barely hints at the moral and ethical depravity of the practice” (Mears, 2008). The article states that there are racial and socioeconomic bias towards the death penalty and how this can and may lead to a cause for concern among citizens. This seems to initiate that in most cases the targets of race are......

Additionally, food scandals have made food safety a contentious issue that warrants special attention.

Vaccinations: a Practice of Public Safety

...Vaccinations: A Practice of Public Safety Vaccinations: A Practice of Public Safety Since their first introduction in the late 1700s, vaccinations have been a controversial topic of discussion. Vaccines are a safe and effective way to prevent the spread of disease. Although we can attribute the eradication and control of many diseases to vaccinations, there are still many Americans who are refusing to vaccinate their children based on their belief in a few unfounded fears. Most of these fears that the anti vaccine community believes are centered around the health risks involved with the practice of vaccinating. The majority of these fears have been disproven through extensive research. With the continued research and innovations of the leading scientists in vaccines, vaccines will become safer and more readily available to people around the world. Vaccinating is the most effective way to keep the public healthy by preventing and eliminating diseases and by preventing future outbreaks. Before the Scientist Edward Jenner introduced vaccines, it was a common to hear about deaths from diseases such as Smallpox, Rubella, Polio, Measles, Tetanus, and Diphtheria. Once these diseases were introduced into a community, they seemed to spread quickly, taking many victims with them. Today, because of the implementation of vaccines, this is a very uncommon occurrence. Hearing about someone being infected with these diseases is rare, and hearing about a death due to these diseases is......

Public Safety

...Public Safety and Privacy Wardell Carter AJS 552 May 28, 2012 Laws concerning public safety and the privacy of individuals contradict one another. A question arises from the situation in regard to whether public safety or individual privacy receives a higher priority based on situations that are individualistic. Although the Fourth Amendment provides protection for the citizens of the United States, there is room for occurrences of crime although the amendment reduces law enforcement’s efforts at crime reduction methods and access to evidence. During the last decade, the Supreme Court made rulings in regard to public safety, privacy, and sex offenders. This paper will debate and analyze two Supreme Court cases; People v. Cintron, and Connecticut Department of Public Safety v. Doe. This paper will also summarize the Supreme Court decisions along with the implications these cases have in regard to social police in the area of public safety. Changes to the approaches taken by law enforcement personnel in regard to individual rights and public safety have taken place because of rulings by the United States Supreme Court. Agencies have additional authority over the protection and application of civil rights, which in some instances bring into question if there is a violation of an individual’s Fourth Amendment rights. In the past, the shattering of privacy......
