Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy

Survey of Justice and Security CJA 500

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to address the fundamental aspects of the Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy, also known as CAPS. According to Walker and Katz (2008) this strategy was distinctively created to address the city and its reform to a new system of how police and citizens interact to lower crime rates and to come up with solutions for those in the community (Community Policing and Problem-Oriented Policing, para. 2). The second part of this research paper is to investigate an article that Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority to determine public opinion of this form of policing and positive trends related toward CAPS. McCanna (1999) discusses how the community and the police work together in the community for a joint effort to reduce crime and the overall result of her study and finding in Chicago (McCanna, 1999, p. 1). McCanna also discusses how since its implementation citizens have become more aware of CAPS and analyzes their satisfaction overall with CAPS.

Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy

In April of 1993 the Chicago Alternative Policing strategy was implemented by Police Superintendent Matt L. Rodriguez (“What is CAPS,” n.d.). Out of the 25 police districts there were five districts that were prototypes before the rest began to participate in 1994(“What is CAPS,” n.d.). These five districts were diverse in their socio and economic backgrounds and the problems each of the communities had. Participation within those communities was placed first to evaluate the effectiveness of the new strategy. McCanna explains in passing what CAPS did that was different from most other policing was that officers each day would be assigned to a specific beat in order to interact and become familiar with the community that the officer is in…...

Negatives of Pay Raise Cap

...Negatives of a Pay Raise Cap Andrew Cursi 215 July 14, 2014 Daria Woodside Negatives of a Pay Raise Cap While the potential money saved by putting a cap on military pay raises might seem appealing, it would have a negative impact on the Armed Forces and their members. Putting a limit on military pay raises could and more than likely will affect how well the military recruits and retains members. Not only that, but it will have a direct impact on military members now and in their future. When a potential soldier, airman, sailor, or marine steps into a recruiter’s office, it is essentially like stepping onto a car dealer’s lot. They immediately start trying to sell the military to the potential recruit, informing them of all the pay and benefits that come along with being in the Armed Forces. One of those benefits is a steady pay raise each year to account for the increase in the cost-of-living. According to the Social Security Administration, the cost of living for the past three years has increased by 1.5%, 1.7%, and 3.6% for the years 2013, 2012, and 2011 respectively (Cost-of-Living Adjustments, n.d.). In the past, Congress has taken that increase in the cost-of-living into account and increased military pay accordingly. The military pay increases for the past three years were 1.7%, 1.6%, 1.4% for the years 2013, 2012, and 2011 respectively according to Navy CyberSpace (U.S Military Basic Pay History, 2014). So, with the exception of 2011 where the pay increase...

White cap: What pieces of information are needed to assist the family in making a decision regarding Marianne’s care? In this situation the family is at odds on what to do about Marianne. The husband wants to do everything possible to keep her alive, whereas the children think that surgery shouldn’t be an option because even if she was to make it through the surgery, there is no guarantee that she will be functional. Since Marianne doesn’t have an advanced directive, the family needs to know what all of their options are and the outcomes of each option. For example, the types of surgeries that can be done and the probability of Marianne being once again functional, maybe the types of non-surgical interventions such as medications or just not doing anything at all and just letting Marianne pass. It already seems that Marianne is far gone since her pupils are dilated and non-reactive. A more conducive testing of her brain activity could help them make the decision on whether or not to proceed with the surgery or not. The family as a......

Six Caps Case Study

...Six Caps Case Study University of Phoenix Undergraduate Nursing Studies Introduction In the words of Albert Einstein, “the world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” Today more and more nurses have to change their thinking process to ensure clients receive quality care. Therefore, clinical judgments cannot be based on speculation but on outcome, directed thinking. As the client health status changes, the nurse must be able recognize, assess, and evaluate all the presenting information to make an outcome decision that is best for the client and client’s family. To make appropriate decisions require nurses to put on their thinking caps. Edward de Bono’s six thinking caps integrates knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, and evaluation allowing the nurse to make quality, outcome based decision. The purpose of this paper will focus on a case study using six thinking caps to critically analyze and make clinical decisions in promoting client safety and quality care. White Cap Thinking Looking at the case study with the White, Ms. Marianne first presented with a severe headache. The nurse uses her knowledge base about hemorrhagic stroke to decide what additional information is needed. Since information cannot be obtained from the patient, the nurse ask the patient’s family questions about the patient’s health problems, family health problems, medical history, medication......

In order for the family of Marianne to make an informed decision certain information is needed. The medical staff needs to review the current prognosis without surgery. What type of treatment or surgery is possible along with the risks, benefits, and recovery required. The staff needs to review if any discussion has occurred in the family with Marianne in the past regarding advance directive wishes even though no formal advance directives have been made. Patient rights need to be reviewed and written copy provided to family. Information on DNR, full code, to allow or when to stop ventilation, and if artificial feedings to be started are a few of the topics that the family needs to have information reviewed to make an informed decision on the care of Marianne.

Rent Caps in Gcc

...RENT CAPS IN GCC Rent caps are basically price control imposed in housing by government rules and policies. When there is a huge demand for housing the rent used to increase considerably. The people could not afford this sudden increase in the price. Hence, there was government intervention in form of rules and regulations stating that rents could not be increased more than a certain amount/percentage. Rent caps are based on the argument that housing is inelastic i.e. increase in demand will not increase the supply in short period of time. When the demand for housing rises the rent used to increase without any constraints. So, the government introduced rent caps to regulate the increase in price of housing rents. Rent caps is still an ongoing debate as most economists think it as the second best way to destroy a city. They claim that due to rent caps there is low motivation for landlords to construct or maintain their housing. The landlords find themselves with low profit or even losses due this price control scheme. The tenants who are protected by this scheme are reluctant to leave their old buildings and use space wastefully. The landlords or owners who construct new buildings impose a higher rent than they would have in a free market. Economists also claim that if proper incentive to landlords are provided then supply would not be less in a long run of time. Thus, housing being inelastic is wrong assumption in the long run. The rent caps......

...Q3 2014 | INVESTMENT Colliers International Canada Cap Rate Report New construction Across North America, High Tech firms are migrating to downtown, centrilized regions rather than suburban areas. Historically, technology firms across North America have tended to locate outside of the downtown core, particularly to more suburban regions. This stemmed from less expensive rental rates, lower taxes, large parcels of space, free parking and an industry that had an endless supply of workers more willing to commute. The 1990s saw the creation of technology regions, such as Silicon Valley (California), the Kanata North Business Park (Ontario) and Discovery Parks (British Columbia). As technology has changed, the space requirements and talent working within the industry have evolved. In more recent years, technology companies, particularly web design, program design and e-commerce firms that rely less on hardware and more on software, have begun to move from suburban office parks to established downtowns or up and coming urban neighbourhoods. Although this trend is at quite different stages in various cities across North America, there are a few patterns that are consistently present. Most importantly, a shift has occurred in which the majority of business is conducted through the web, so space needs now focus predominantly on employees and company branding. Many high-tech firms are striving for stimulating, accessible spaces which promote creativity,......

State Imposed Revenue Caps

...State Imposed Revenue Caps The Ellsworth Community School District, which happens to be the district I’m a part of, has been heavily impacted by state imposed revenue caps. Recently, due to these limits, the school board came to the voters for a revenue limit override. This is basically the local people giving the district the ability to exceed revenue limit. To do this the board had to go to referendum, which the district did in April 2015. The referendum passed, allowing the cap to be pushed up to 1.3 million dollars a year for three years. A year prior to the passing of this referendum, the district had a referendum fail. This resulted in over one million dollars’ worth of budget cuts to meet the state imposed revenue limit. Our district, along with many others, must go to referendum to be able to keep the programs and teaching staff. This is not the first time the district has had to make cuts. Ever since revenue limits came into play in 1993, the district has made millions of dollars’ worth of cuts to meet the revenue cap each year. Unwanted changes and cuts are made by the district to save money, because the revenue cap basically limits the growth of the budget. Not only can the revenue limits have fiscal effects, but also social effects that I have personally experienced firsthand. When I was in middle school, the school board put forth a revenue limit override. This referendum was long overdue and was direly needed, with serious budget cuts being the consequence.......

Frog Sciatic Nerve Cap

...1. How does a CAP differ from a single action potential? Single action potentials follow the "all or none" rule. That is, if a stimulus is strong enough to depolarize the membrane of the neuron to threshold, then an action potential will be fired. Each stimulus that reaches threshold will produce an action potential that is equal in magnitude to every other action potential for the neuron. Compound action potentials do not exhibit this property since they are a bundle of neurons and have different magnitudes of AP's. Thus compound action potentials are graded. That is, the greater the stimulus, the greater the action potential. 2. Action potentials are said to be all or none responses. Why does the frog sciatic nerve give a graded response? The frog sciatic nerve gives a graded response because the nerve is a bundle of axons (CAP) and not a single axon (thus it does not show the all or none response of an axon-either generating an action potential or not). If one axon is generating an action potential then a small nerve impulse is witnessed, if all axons are simultaneously generating action potentials then a large nerve impulse is witnessed. Thus the nerve impulse is graded (it can be none, small, medium, large, larger, maximal). 3. What was the smallest voltage required to produce the maximum (largest) CAP? What proportion of the nerve fibers were excited to produce this maximal response? A minimum of 140 mV is required to......

Cap Bankruptcy

...send their children to college, widespread panic ensued the moment these accusations hit the press. The biggest company to suffer was the pioneer in the industry, a company called College Assurance Plan or CAP. The CAP Family of Companies began in 1980 with the birth of its mother company - College Assurance Plan. CAP has since expanded its business to the areas of Pre-need Pension, Distance Learning, Health Maintenance, Life Insurance, Information Technology, Financing, Communications and General Insurance. It is a group of companies that the Filipino family can trust for an assured and better future – to hold on to as a true and reliable partner through the next millennium. It is also a growing and dynamic corporate family capable of serving each and every Filipino family's pre-need and insurance requirements. They had the largest number of plan holders subscribed to their pre-need education plan compared to any other pre-need company. This company was brought to its knees when certain government officials of the Philippines, came out of nowhere and publicly declared that CAP was bankrupt. They questioned the company's use of their trust funds and had the Securities and Exchange Commission or SEC freeze their accounts. Naturally, the families that had subscribed to CAP at the time were infuriated and began demanding their money back, canceling their subscriptions. This caused further problems for the company, as their reputation was ripped apart in one sudden......
