Paper #1 (crim. justice) The video shows a lot of intense physical training at the police academy. In my opinion it focuses on the physical part a whole lot, as an officer’s body is the main tool on the job. I noticed the physical hands on, in dealing with suspects. This is very important as that officers will have to go hands on a lot in their careers. They need to be prepared in good effective writing skills, be able to take reports, and have good grammar. They also must understand the laws and what they fall under as an officer. The video shows driving course, classroom, defensive tactics, patrol, firearms, and a lot of physical activity. I feel that one must have a physical and mental ability and desire to complete an academy. The cadet must also be able to perform all tasks involved and be proficient with their firearm and weapons. I can see that in the academy video all training was for actual real life scenarios, in which I have encountered many of these first hand. If my department was more oriented in community policing, I would definitely hit the streets and be visible more in the residential and business areas. This involves me more as one on one with the public. It builds a good report and trust. An officer can learn a lot by being visible. (Wycoff, 2020) states that this service can develop a better relationship between the police and the public. I have encountered this type of scenario personally before. I handled it this way: I held the juveniles until I could contact their parents. The parents then put me on the scene. The juveniles were cited to juvenile court and turned over to their parents. The police culture is real and does exist. All of us officers are in the same boat. We do the same things on duty, and we meet basically the same issues. All officers share the common leap which is to come home safely. (Morin, R. et al. 2017) stated that many of the officers worry about a fatal attack or not making it home after a shift. Many will not think about it or choose not to think about it. Most all officers fall into this category as not only having a physically demanding job, but mentally stressful as well. My department is very family oriented and supports the family very much. As officers we have the ability to separate work and family, and it is encouraged. A lot of agencies such as mine will allow personal days each month, as well as paid time off. This allows the officers to have a normal outside life. I am all business at work, but after I clock out I leave it and go home. I used to not do that. There are programs and training available in today’s time to help officers deal with these issues.

PAPER#2 (crim justice) ” Gloucester County, New Jersey” For an individual to be best prepared for a police academy, the individual should have a training regimen that focuses primarily on physical and mental fitness. The individuals should be prepared to push their bodies beyond their current physical limits and should commit to a good fitness routine. The individual should also attempt to prepare themselves mentally to accommodate any extensive study sessions that they may encounter while at the academy. Research has shown evidence of a police culture that can impact the social and domestic lives of police officers (Coombe, 2013). I believe that police culture would have to exist in their line of work. Police officers have a dangerous job and should be able to rely on their fellow officers when needed. In the military, we have a culture of our own. The military and police cultures make it easier to connect with fellow members of the same occupation and culture. The tasks in the video I watched seemed to be job-related and made perfect sense. According to our textbook, Dr. Neal Trautman created the “Code of Silence Antidote (COSA), this code has 32 standards to enforce and reward integrity for police officers, to combat officers protecting fellow officers expected of police corruption (Carter, 2018). The police culture would warrant officers to care for one another in times of need. The police culture could tempt officers to defend fellow officers who have committed crimes. The standards that Dr. Trautman created would begin implementation at the police recruit level and would be engrained in the recruit’s head early in his or her career.
