Weitzel: Values in high quality policing
Two-way communication between citizens and the police is essential for an effective and efficient law enforcement agency.
The role of policing has significantly evolved since it became a profession in 1829 under Sir Robert Peele in London. Beginning with the 1970s, we are now in what is commonly referred to as the community era of modern policing. In many jurisdictions, police have striven to have a better connection with the residents they serve, and Riverside is no exception.
The culture of a police department reflects what that department believes in as an organization. These beliefs are reflected in the department’s recruiting and selection process, policies, training, development and ultimately, in the actions of its officers in law enforcement situations.
