This Competency Assessment assesses the following outcome(s):
Discuss how technological changes impact criminal justice organizations.
If you could look back in time to 60 years ago, you would see a totally different make-up and focus of police officers and police departments. Just as society is radically different than it was back then, so is the make-up and role of law enforcement. There is a much higher ratio of officers to the public today. Police are better educated, better trained, and better equipped than at any other time in history.
As drastically as the look of the police force has changed, their function has perhaps changed even more. Today, police perform three common functions: Crime control, order maintenance, and social work.
For this Assignment, write a 500–700-word essay describing the primary functions police perform today and how technological changes have impacted these functions. Include the following in your essay:
Describe each function and discuss what type of activities police are responsible for within each function.
Choose one of the three that you would consider the primary function of law enforcement. Justify your reasoning.
Discuss how growing diversity and technological changes have impacted and will continue to impact these functions and the police force. Provide examples of how technological changes will impact criminal justice organizations in the future.
Cite a minimum of two sources in addition to the textbook within the body of your paper using in-text citations where appropriate.
Include a title and reference page.
