Policing in itself is a difficult task that needs the undivided attention of both law enforcement and the citizens they have sworn to protect. Sir Robert Peel said it best when he stated,” The police are the public and the public are the police ;the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence”. He was stating that policing was needed for the public and needed to meet the needs of the public. Sir Robert created the first police force in 1829, when looking at the rising criminal acts Sir Robert decided that major changes needed to happen with the criminal code. The first officer's force was created under the Metropolitan Police Act, they were known as Bobby's boys or "bobbies. (Sir Robert Peel). In modern policing, the police were in were in the various communities to make a presence known and to deter crime and keep the peace. By today’s standards, policing has taken on variety of roles which make them more human instead of being separate from the citizens they are protecting. There are the roles of problem solver and counselor that have been added to the duties of the police. There has to be some sort of sensitivity to the needs of law-abiding citizens. Before when an act of crime was committed and the police were called, a report was made and follow-ups were done if needed. For instances, when there were episodes of domestic violence little was done to protect the victim. However, the police today have expanded on the modern policing by becoming more entangled with the parties involved and separating them to…...

The Role of the Concept of Need and Inequality Social Policy

...From the inauguration of state organised welfare the concepts of ‘need’ and inequality have been at the centre of discussions and debates on social policy. Since the 19th century it has widely been accepted that the state has some responsibility towards attempting to fulfil some of civil society’s needs and the needs of those most at risk. Changing definitions and attitudes surround the concepts of need and inequality; this means any discussion of these instantly encapsulates the political and ideological debates which affect all aspects of social policy. Titmuss (ed. 1987) writes that ‘collectively provided services are deliberately designed to meet certain socially recognized ‘needs’; they are manifestations’ this means any changes within these are interrelated with those in society. Miller (1987) draws from Titmuss’s work explaining that the inequality which creates need is formed from the very nature of an advanced industrial society as ‘the costs of economic growth and stability are not evenly distributed’ he describes the welfare state as ‘compensation for the vulnerable who pay the prices of ‘progress’ (1987). This essay seeks to examine the concept of need within social policy by looking at how it became recognised in the 19th century and how it was defined in the 20th century. This will include looking at what social legislation has been borne out of its recognition. I will also look at the changing attitudes towards inequality and the left/right political and......

Need for Advertising and Public Policy

...The article I found was in the International Journal of Advertising titled, On the Need for Advertising and Public Policy Research by Charles R. Taylor. Charles Taylor is a Professor of Marketing at Villanova University in Villanova, Philadelphia. Charles Taylor’s main point and concern in this article is the need for Advertising scholars to perform impartial research in the public policy area. Taylor begins his editorial with examples of advertising regulation and affects of advertising on society with the topic of the obesity epidemic and advertising’s role in it. Taylor’s first reference is from an article written in The Australian which states, “Restricting television advertisements for junk food aimed at children would be one of the most cost-effective public health measures governments could make, yielding huge savings from preventing fat kids turning into sickly adults.” Another article that supports this claim is referenced is in the Journal of Obesity by authors who are on the Faculty of Health, Medicine, Nursing and Behavioral Sciences at Deakin University. A study done by Anne Magnus and Michelle Haby show that a range of “21 to 57% of all childhood obesity is being caused by junk food advertising in the U.S.” (Taylor, 601). Taylor then gets to his main point and states how all of these articles may be produced by intelligent doctors, researchers for the public health and so forth, but not one of these articles and/or estimates produced were from a......

It is the process designed to maintain and make available to the general public continuous supply of high quality seeds and propagating materials of crops to ensure the genetic, physical, physiological and health status.

Bazlur Rashid, Ph.D. 1. Professor, Department of Social works, University of Rajshahi, Bangladesh 2. University of Rajshahi, Bangladesh ABSTRACT: Environmental refugees are one of the most burning issues at this time throughout the world. Bangladesh, a riverine country, is suffering from acquit riverbank erosion which compels millions of her population to be displaced from their place of origin. As such, 283 locations, 85 towns and growth centers, along with 2400 kilometers of riverbank line in Bangladesh are vulnerable to erosion. The major rivers e.g., the Padma, the Jamuna, and the Meghna, erode several thousand hectares of floodplain making thousands of people landless and homeless every year. Along with the floodplain, Bangladesh loses several kilometers of roads, railways, and flood-control embankments annually. No other disaster is as disastrous as riverbank erosion and ‘Internally Displaced Populations’ (IDP) face many unavoidable problems at different stages of displacement. Displacement marginalized them in respect of livelihood patterns and psycho-physical troubles. Such forty million homeless people in Bangladesh are compelled to lead a floating life. Riverbank erosion plays a major role in socio-environmental changes. The displaced people of riverbank erosion experience......

Needs of Diverse Students

...Educating Special Needs Students Identifying and providing for special needs children is essential to special education. Once a child has been diagnosis with a disability or multiple disabilities, a plan of care is initiated according to the severity of their condition and their needs. This plan is individualized; one child’s diagnosis is not a reflection of the wide range conditions that affect many children. Intellectual disabilities can be mild to profound, can be caused by different factors and can have a different impact on a student’s education and adult life. (Hardman, Drew, & Egan, 2013). Professionals have found many causes for disabilities from genetic to medical. Whatever the cause of these disabilities educators must identify areas of curriculum necessary for students with severe disabilities and/or multiple disabilities. Our local school district, like many public schools, has policies and procedures and programs to ensure appropriate education for students with intellectual disabilities. The degree of a person’s intellectual disability that can be described as mild to profound and the causes of the disability can play a major role in identifying the areas of curriculum necessary for students with disabilities. Definitions, Causes and Impact According to AAIDD, intellectual disabilities is defined as “significant limitations both in intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior as expressed in conceptual, social, and practical adaptive skills.”......

A Diverse Company

...A Diverse Company: American Express HRM 799 August 11, 2008 In 1850 a company named American Express was launched not as a financial institution, instead it was known for making deliveries throughout the east coast as well as the west. Although large freight deliveries were made majority of the company’s profit came from delivering small parcels such as, stock certificates, notes, currency and other financial instruments. By the late 1800’s American Express branched out leaving the delivery service business behind. Their new expansion included money orders and travelers checks, which helped increase their banking relationships with European Banks. All of this led to the opening of European offices, first in Paris then London. In 1905 American Express brought their business to the United States. During the early 1900’s New York encountered a large amount of immigrants coming over from Europe. As they arrived at Ellis Island it had been discovered by the U.S. Immigration Department that the independent currency exchangers on site were robbing them. At that point a contract agreement was made for American Express to set up shop and become Ellis Island’s new currency exchange for the people. October 1, 1958 American Express created its first credit card, made on purple paper launched in the United States and Canada. It obviously had great success, accepted worldwide at about 30,000 institutions and carried by 500,000 customers. The following year Amex (American...

...| | The benefits of having a diverse workforce Diversity is more than just a buzz-word. In today's workplace, it can hold the key to fostering new ways of thinking, reaching out to a wider range of customers and growing your business. Our workforce and working patterns are changing. Our working population is getting older, and increasing numbers of women and people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds are entering the workforce. Valuing diversity is becoming increasingly important for businesses. Publisher Malcolm Forbes once said that 'diversity is the art of thinking independently together.' Organisations can't thrive and grow if everyone in them thinks and behaves the same way. Having a diverse workforce with people from different racial, educational and social backgrounds and a diverse age range opens up a wealth of possibilities and helps to encourage creativity and foster innovation. There's also a clear competitive advantage to be gained from employing a diverse workforce. An organisation with a diverse range of employees is well placed to understand the needs of a wide range of customers, and can interact with a broad client base. Not only that, but it is also in a good position to recruit and retain staff in an increasingly diverse and competitive labour market. Embedding diversity of thought throughout an organisation also means that talent can be properly recognised and nurtured - wherever it may be. The best starting point for any......

The Relevance of Indigenous Customary Education Principles in the Formulation of Special Needs Education Policy

...FORMULATION OF SPECIAL NEEDS EDUCATION POLICY BOAZ Paper presented at the Fourth International Special Education Congress, Birmingham, 10-13 April 1995 University of Manchester School of Education April 1995 THE RELEVANCE OF INDIGENOUS CUSTOMARY EDUCATION PRINCIPLES IN THE FORMULATION OF SPECIAL NEEDS EDUCATION POLICY Joseph Kisanji INTRODUCTION The Salamanca Statement and Framework for Action on Special Needs Education adopted at the World Conference on Special Needs Education in June 1994 reaffirmed commitment of the world community to “Education for All” and urged governments to “give the highest policy and budgetary priority to improve their education systems to enable them to include all children regardless of individual differences and difficulties”. The United Nations (1994) in its “Standard Rules on the Equalization of Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities” urges Member States in Rule Number 6 to ensure special needs education “is an integral part of the education system”. These statements in support of the “Education for All” campaign which was given the blessing of the international community at the 1990 Jomtien Conference provide broad guidelines for national and local action. However, national governments have to unpack the guidelines to make "Education for All" a practical reality for people with special needs. This unpacking,......

The It Policy - Why Do We Need One and What Should It Contain ?

...The IT Policy - Why do we need one and what should it contain ? Many, many years ago, in fact December 25th 1981, I got my first computer, a joint Christmas present with my Brother. My first computer was a Sinclair ZX81 with 1k ram, we later purchased a 16k expansion pack and a sound-card and spent many long hours programming it, reading the 'full' manual (RTFM;) and if things went wrong or the program we had just spent all day working on crashed we had no IT help line to ring, we just had to sort it out ourselves. My Brother and I have been 'into computers' ever since, but why mention this ? Back then we thought the future held many innovations and a shiney new world where computers are as common as the TV, with functionality to match, you go to a shop, buy a Computer, take it home and plug it in and it just works, like a TV. Sounds great doesn't it. Unfortunately the reality is far from this, there are many inherent problems with computers and many nasty things that want to make your computer life hell. Managing a home computer is hard enough, trying to navigate through a myriad of options all programs have now from writing a letter where the program spell-checks it as you type, offers suggestions and allows to to mail-merge with your database to print the letter or email mail it to far flung corners of the globe, or, which browser / email client / picture editing program / letter writing program etc. to use. On top of all this you have to make sure you......

Managing Diverse Workforce

...Managing Diverse Workforce Name Institution Introduction The concept of workplace diversity refers to the differences that exist within an organization based on the employees working together in a team (Sonnenschein, 2009). It is imperative to note that the modern working environment calls for the need to manage the diverse workforce. As such, the management shoulders the responsibility of ensuring that they effectively manage diverse employees within their organization. It would sound simple to think that managing such team does not require tact and knowledge. However, it is pertinent to note that the aspect of diversity encompasses many fields like ethnic background, race, and age of individuals, gender, educational level, and the personality type of people. Additionally, diversity involves how the individuals perceive themselves and others of the different background than theirs. Hence, the perceptions will interfere with how they interact with others and the manner in which the organization will operate (Blunt, 2009). Therefore, for various assortments of employees to be in a position to function effectively within an organization, the human resource personnel must effectively deal with a broad range of issues. For instance, they must address change within the organization, communication aspect, and adaptability to the working environment. Furthermore, the issue of diversity will significantly increase in the future hence the......

Hinduism, Sikhism and Islamic medical practices are discussed. Medical beliefs and daily activities that are affected when members of these faiths are hospitalized and options for adjustments related to those beliefs are highlighted. Appling these adjustments to practices can be made. Diverse Faiths and Health Care Practices: Nursing Integration Health care providers come in contact with many patients of various backgrounds and religions. Knowing and understanding the diversity and how it affects health care practices is an important factor in treatment and care of patients. Hinduism, Sikhism and Islam are just a few of the faiths with differing beliefs relating to healthcare that differ from traditional Christian philosophy. Hindu According to Robinson (2012), Hinduism is the third largest religion and considered the oldest religion in the world.
