POLICE ISSUE You are a law enforcement officer (LEO) representing your agency, making a presentation to a group of concerned citizens, including the media. Your objective is to sway the audience into seeing the issue from a different perspective (that of the police).You will use a PowerPoint presentation to discuss a current issue in policing to the attendees.

Content Requirements:

Choose ONE (1) of the following topics

  • Community Policing–Does it really work or is it a “feel good” program?
  • Building trust with communities. 
  • Officer Involved Shootings: Public Perception vs. Reality
  • Gun Legislation & Law Enforcement (Will increasing gun control be better or worse for police? Will it make our citizens safer? Will it reduce violent crime?)
  • Are body cameras an invasion of privacy or are they necessary?
  • Is profiling justified and necessary?
  • Why can’t the police stop the violence in Miami? (Drive-by shootings; increase in violent crime; gang violence)
  • Should the police agencies investigate themselves or should outside agencies (state or federal) and/or civilian review boards be instituted?
  • Should the grand jury system be used for officers accused of a crime or should it be eliminated? (What would replace it?)
  • Police morale–Who cares? (Why does it matter?)
  • Police corruption (from a law enforcement perspective).
  • Use of Force–Is it excessive or is it being used to keep officers out of harms way? (De-escalation, minimizing; public perception)
