Where is the LOVE? Policing today is likened to a divorce and all the conflict, hate, and aggression that goes into it.

Policing today is likened to a divorce and all the conflict, hate, and aggression that goes into it.

Where is the LOVE?
Policing and the public was a marriage born from Sir Robert Peel back in 1829 when times were so different or were they? 

Even the thought of having to be police and step into conflicts, arguments, property rights and heaven forbid, murder was thought originated from control. 
Sounds like a marriage to me!  Peel stated “the Police are the Public and Public are the Police”, which has had the word public changed to people over the centuries.  I think it is better for us to return to the original word, Public.

Of course, we can look back to what Sir Robert Peel was thinking when he developed the first true police force in Great Britain and used his crafted statements within the Nine Peelian Principles.  There do standalone and are the basis of policing.

Just like a marriage, the Peelian principles are the vows and the foundation of civility between people, the public, and police.

Our safety is akin to co-parenting of a child when they are a disassociation.  It becomes a ‘Them & Us’ situation and no matter what anyone does, they are wrong.  When the love abounds it is all hunky dory with kisses and gifts, then all hell breaks loose!  This is the same with has been happening for decades between law enforcement and the police.  They are one and the same, they live in the same neighborhoods, the children go to local schools, shop together and party at the same restaurants.  Collectively we among each other!

The employed public as police officers are charged to uphold the laws.  They are the ones who you call to solve the human issues of criminal acts, not the individual members of the public.

We can look back and see historically what has gone before, just in a marriage or the divorce, it does not good on its own and it will solve today’s issues.  

Yesterday was yesterday and today is today, it is the tomorrows that are all important.  Just like looking after your co-parented child, what you do together is vital to their success.

This is exactly the same for a cohesive existence of the public and police.  Yes, the laws are on the books and we must adhere to them.  When law enforcement is challenged with crime, they must solve and protect the public.

It takes what has gone on historically, as we must not let history repeat itself.  We must add technology and true social change, not the anti-social actions of those members of the public who scoff the law and just want to fight, no matter what the issues.

That is where we at CommSmart Global Group, a LexisNexis Risk Solutions Partner shine, we have the global knowledge and have honed our skills, listen to all and have the proven solutions to deal with all situations in the ability to know what is going on within the public.

It takes Social Media Monitoring, Public Data, Crime Analytics, Community Crime Mapping, Predictive Analysis and a strong listening ear.  It is not about marketing services, it is about the passion we have for making our social world more acceptable, safer and this we commit to you.
