Please provide a 100 word response to the below classmate discussion post.
The response is based on the below film and initial question:
View the film, Service, Support & Justice: Law Enforcement Response to Crime Victims, Office for Victims Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice
Post in the Collaboration Forums. Explain how you would correlate our Criminal Justice Management course to this film. This may be at the Executive Management, Middle Management, or Line Supervisor level. There is no right or wrong answer; however, make an effort to demonstrate how each influences the other in a positive manner.
To start, the video was extremely informative. I will try to respond to this post the best way possible as I am a 911 dispatcher and not a police officer. Watching the video I have noticed how law enforcement has changed over the years. Years ago police officers never really focused on the victim. They only focused on finding out who committed said crime and catching them. There was little to no attention given to the victim. Giving the victims the attention is important. Although they need space as well but showing the victims attention is basically telling and showing the, that their agency cares about them. Not showing them that attention is not giving them hope that they are safe or their case isn’t important to the department. One of the agencies implanted a rule that the detectives have to reach out to the victims within 36 hours to follow up with them which is amazing. If agencies are able to do that then that means they have very good control on how they assign cases to their detectives. Most agencies aren’t capable of following up with their victims because of the amount of cases coming in or staffing issues.
