HOW DO WE REDUCE CRIME AND PRESERVE HUMAN DECENCY? THE ROLE OF LEADERSHIP IN POL

Policing in the United States has been and still is under extensive criticism today, not much as change-RACIAL PROFILING. Tuch and Weitzer (1996) found that the police brutality leads to a lesson of trust and support, both on the local and national front. Unfortunately though there may be many research on policing and ethnic minorities, majority of them, present the police in a negative light. Even after the ceasing of Jim Crow laws and the implementation of the fair housing act of 1969; black Americans still have a negative perception of the police. History has given and shown reasons for their resistance and animosity towards the police department, past research showed that 22% of Black Americans’ had very little, to no confidence in the police department. Another ethnic minority has seen racial stereotyping, and profiling is Latino; only 9 % had any faith and trust in the police organization. In contrast to only 8% white Americans. What is causing the divide in reported statistics and what can be done to improve the relationship and perception of the American police force, to the American public. Benjamin’s (2000) paper intends to highlight some of the divisions, the causes and how to rectify the problems.
