The first police department in the United States was established in New York City in 1844 (it was officially organized in 1845). Other cities soon followed suit: New Orleans and Cincinnati (Ohio) in 1852; Boston and Philadelphia in 1854; Chicago and Milwaukee (Wis.) in 1855; and Baltimore (Md.) and Newark (N.J.) in 1857.
Another challenging thing that police officers face is health issues. “Just the physical portion of it is strenuous. We have a lot of older officers that are having heart attacks nationwide that bother us. As a law enforcement officer, we don’t want to see anything bad happen,” he said.
TRUST IN THE COMMUNITY
One need only turn on the nightly news to understand that law enforcement across the United States is facing some unprecedented challenges. Those challenges, including the need to rebuild community trust and law enforcement legitimacy, are confronting agencies large and small from coast to coast.
MENTAL HEALTH STATISTICS: POLICE OFFICERS
In Mississippi, the lowest-paying state, police officers earn over $31,000 less than the national average wage. It should be noted, however, that only 16 states have police officer salaries that are higher than the national average.
Here’s How Much Money Police Officers Earn In Every State
Some ideas that we can consider not anyhting that is in stone but out of the box thinking.
1. Four Hour shift (paid at 8hrs) Officer's are dying at a very high rate from heart attacks- from stress.
2. We seperate the power of Government and allow the police to be regulated by the public for all of its policys including hiring and firing and will be the highest form or power. The police will only protect human and animal lives from any harm including governments. What does the public have to trust in? Every Government entity controls the public and we have nothing to protect us from corruption and it is sometimes stressful to feel secure from the same people that will have to follow their Government policy before human lives or care.
3. Any drugs found in the public, police will have the authority to sue the Department of Justice for allowing the drugs to enter the United States and will not arrest but confiscate.
5. Entirly work to improve their communities with planning and implementing. Police are on the streets every day and they know what to change.
6. WE ASK THE POLICE WHAT WE NEED CHANGED AND CHANGE IT.
