The Philadelphia Foot Patrol Experiment
Identify the purpose of the research study, problem, and questions. * The purpose of this research was to determine if police foot patrols can improve community perception of the police and reduce fear of crime and prevent actual crime
Describe the design of the study. * In Philadelphia, their resources consisted of 60 patrol locations; researchers identified the highest violent crime corners in the city, using data from 2006 to 2008. Police commanders designed 120 foot patrol areas around these corners, and stratified randomization was used to assign pairs of foot patrols with similar crime rates as either a comparison or a target area. * Officers generally patrolled in pairs with two pairs assigned to each foot patrol. They worked from Tuesday morning to Saturday night in two shifts (10am to 6pm, 6pm to 2am).
Identify an operational definition used by the researchers. * An operational definition used by researchers is describing a foot patrol as a police officer working on foot throughout their beat or assigned area rather than utilizing a vehicle.
Provide one example of inductive logic and one example of deductive logic presented in the results. * An example of inductive reasoning is foot patrol beats returned to their pre-experiment crime levels once the foot patrol experiment was concluded. Foot patrol is more likely to conduct pedestrian stops and deal with disorder and drug offenses while car patrol handled the vast majority of reported crime incidents is an example of deductive reasoning.
Identify whether the research study is a quantitative or qualitative design. Explain your answer. * The research was qualitative design. The research conducted was analyzed and focused on the results it produced and the quality of the policing done on foot compared to vehicles. The focus was on…...

Foot-Bingding

...going to talk about the women’s high heels; I am going to talk about the Chinese foot-binding, what cause it and what it affects. They have similar function but it’s different. High heels are the shoes of the foot, but the foot-binding is changing your foot’s shape as a high heel. You see the difference, one is shoes and one is foot. Chinese foot- binding started during song dynasty, it is a Chinese custom of wrapping women's feet with 10 feet long bandages in order to stop them from growing with age, (picture, some women went even further, turn their feet into only 3 inches long which we call it “three-inch golden lotuses.”) and give them pretty look back then. But it has caused severe life- long disability for many millions of elder women, and even in recent years. Why Chinese women want their feet to be bounded? First of all, obviously any husband doesn’t want his wife run away, if a husband hitting his wife that she couldn’t ran away because it’s very difficult to run with bounded feet. Second, having a wife like that, it’s a status symbol for men. It means you are able to let your wife just sit at home and look pretty and no need for work. Third, back then, there was a huge foot fetish. Men ogle over feet like current days men ogle over busty girl. This is a way they describe the sexy, they thought women who have their feet bound are extremely sexy. Lastly, it’s necessary to have their foot bound. There was only a few men could accept their wife without food-binding,......

Border Patrol

...Geography affects the United States border security by making some borders more accessible to cross and making them more feasible spots for illegal crossings while making other borders somewhat problematic to cross. For the United States, the East and West Coasts are sometimes challenging to access due to their geography. They face towards large oceans and are often quite distant from any foreign countries. The northern and southern borders are very long land borders. These borders go through very isolated areas and can be very hard to keep order and patrol. The northern border is generally seen as a less likely spot for illegal crossings because it borders on a prosperous country instead of a poor one. These are ways in which geography determines which United States borders are most likely to be crossed illegally. Mexico’s border is smaller and can be monitored and patrolled with less ability. It also has the most activity of illegal entry with the intent to stay in the United States. I believe that terrorist enter our country from many entry points in addition to Mexico and Canada. In my opinion no one is serious about patrolling borders and stopping illegal entry simply because it’s not cost effective. Greater efforts should be made to bring Mexico, the country that is the primary source of illegal immigrants, into the planning process. The northern border poses a more severe challenge as far as border control given its length, geographic complexity, and comparative......

Foot Care

...Foot Care for the patient with Neuropathy The foot is often the place problems start for people with neuropathy. People with neuropathy who get corns, calluses and bunions have an increased risk for getting foot ulcers (very serious, deep sores). Infection in these ulcers can lead to hospitalization and even the amputation of a foot. How should I care for my feet to avoid foot problems?  Look at your feet daily. Call us at the very first sign of redness, swelling, infection, prolonged pain, numbness or tingling in any part of a foot.  Wash your feet every day in lukewarm water (check the water temperature with your hand or elbow first) and mild soap; use only a washcloth or a very soft brush.  Dry your feet well, especially between the toes. Use a soft towel and blot gently; don’t rub.  Keep the skin of your feet smooth by applying a moisturizing cream or lanolin lotion, especially on the heels.  If your feet sweat easily, keep them dry by dusting them with non-medicated powder before putting on shoes and stockings.  Wear well-padded socks or stockings that are not wrinkled and that are ½ an inch longer than your longest toe. Don’t wear stretch socks, nylon socks or socks with an elastic band or garter at the top. Don’t wear socks with inside seams.  When you buy new shoes, choose shoes made of soft leather. They should not fit tightly anywhere. If you’ve had foot problems because of shoes that didn’t fit well, you may want to be fitted for a...

Border Patrol

...BORDER PATROL ENFORCEMENT Border Patrol focus has been detection, apprehension and/or deterrence of terrorists and terrorist weapons (Working the Border Patrol, 2011). The duties and responsibilities of the Border Patrol is one of the most important jobs and it is to detect and prevent the entry of illegal immigrants, terrorists, and smugglers into the United States. Part of their duty is to maintain the surveillance that is in place from their covert position, follow up on leads, respond to sensor systems, aircraft sightings, following and interpreting track marks and any other physical evidence they come across (Working the Border Patrol, 2011). Border Patrol patrols the border in all types of weather and terrain. These agents work around the clock as we have stated. The United States believe that the Mexican government would not live up to any deals or compromises between the two countries. They feel that Mexico feel the border is our problem and not theirs (Alden, p. 259). This makes it even harder for Border Patrol if they do not have the cooperation and assistance of other law enforcement. A primary goal of the Border Patrol is to keep the enemy from crossing our border. One activity that could take place to hopefully guarantee the safety of those crossing the border legally and to protect he United States citizens is to build “the fence” (Alden, p. 285). The fence would be built along the U.S. Border with Mexico. There is a lot of opposition to this......

Foot Binding

...Foot Binding the 20th Century Women have been trying to modify their bodies since the beginning of time and this has not changed to the present day. Today women use many types of products to change the way they look to create societies image of perfection. The use of makeup and other topical products is seen to be the norm and if you don’t use them you are usually not seen as put together as other women. Also today women today have many more drastic and permanent option that women in the past could not use. Women today can undergo cosmetic surgery. In fact, the amount of women that get liposuction is 55%, 47% get tummy tucks, 21% get breast enlargements and 24% of women get Botox injections (ChaCha). While the method of body modification had changed, the amount of pain and time that women are willing to put into creating the image that they think is the ideal image has not change over time. Body type and structure has always been important to women. They ideal body type has changed over time. For example, larger women at one point in time were coveted because being larger meant that you could afford to eat in excess. In China specifically the size of women’s feet was thought to be important and the smaller they were the more attractive the women. This is a brutal process that many young women had to endure so that they could be considered attractive and did a lot of damage to their bodies and esteem.

Police Patrol

...Patrol accounts for the biggest portion of police work in most police agencies. The terms “patrolling” and ”on patrol” generally refer to what officers do while not handling calls for service—officers do this mostly in patrol cars, but sometimes on foot, on bicycles, on horseback, or the like. While on patrol, officers may look for traffic violations, suspicious behavior, disorder, and unsafe conditions. They may also look for opportunities to interact with the public in casual or more formal situations. This is all considered patrolling. The time that police officers spend handling calls for service is also considered part of patrol work. Officers on patrol respond to calls, take reports, quell disturbances, and so forth. The combination of these two sets of activities—patrolling and handling calls—occupy most of the time of patrol officers, who in turn represent most of the personnel in the typical police department. Thus, patrol is the main business of policing. We closely associate the term ”patrol” with the police today. New police officers are usually assigned to patrol duties and are often called patrol officers. The largest unit in most police departments is the patrol division; in small police departments, everyone patrols. When we call for police assistance, whether for an emergency, to report a crime, to quiet a disturbance, or to request some type of routine service, a patrol officer is typically dispatched. When we encounter the police in that most ubiquitous...

Foot Massage

...amazement. A smoothing Chinese foot massage is one of the alternative methods which can be treated as a physical treatment to make people feel relaxation and decrease their body pain. Traditional Chinese foot massage consists of a foot bath followed by an intense massage on different pressure points in the feet, ankles and legs. Chinese foot massage has been practiced for centuries and it is popular in China. Both ancient Chinese books and modern medical texts mention the effect of foot massage which has been extensively used in treatment for medical symptoms, for example, arthritis, back, neck, and shoulder pain. It is also recommended by physiotherapists in China. Even the feeling of a traditional Chinese foot massage may differ, it basically begins with soaking the feet in hot water adding tea and herbs. During the feet soaking, the therapist massages a person’s shoulders, back and neck for 10 to 15 minutes. After that, the feet are removed from the water and the person is transferred to a comfortable chair where the therapist is ready to work. The therapist uses cream or lotion on the foot and then rubs, pushes and massages pressure points on the bottom, top, and sides of the foot. The foot massage is often painful, particularly for first timers because it is believed that each part of the foot is connected to a part of the body. If pain is felt in a particular part of the foot, it is believed the corresponding part of the body has a problem. So far, foot massage is......

Police Patrol

...The Purpose and Effectiveness of Police Patrols To begin studying this topic I’d like to provide a brief definition of a patrol officer. In law enforcement, patrol officers are uniformed police officers assigned to patrol specified geographic areas. They are the officers most commonly encountered by the public. Their duties include responding to calls for service, making arrests, resolving disputes, taking crime reports, and conducting traffic enforcement, and other crime prevention measures. The patrol officer is the first on the scene to arrive. What they do or fail to do at the scene can greatly influence the outcome of an investigation. The patrol officer, as the person daily in the field, is closest to potential crime and oftentimes has probably developed contacts that can provide information that may assist in solving the crime. The general purpose of police patrols whether on foot, bicycle, horseback or motor vehicle is to have a visible presence in the community, maintain public order and a sense of security in the community, build relationships with citizens and business owners, and deter crime especially in trouble spots. The basic activities of these patrols are divided into four different categories. Preventive Patrol – By maintaining a presence in a community patrol officers prevent crime from occurring. This usually accounts for about 40% of the officer’s time. Calls For Service – This is when officers are responding to 911 calls for emergency service,......

Rules enforced by Highway Patrol are intended to protect the well being of society.) c. Which of these challenges would be the best way to challenge the regulation you selected for this assignment if you wanted to have the regulation overturned and why?  -I would think the theory of legal issues would be the best way to challenge the regulation due to the shape of Georgia’s economy. Some could see this regulation as a way to raise funds to aide in funding for other activities within the state. g...

Patrol Essay

...3/12/2016 PATROL Hello my name. and this is how I feel about racial tension in the city of St, Louis. I think St Louis City is one of the most racially divided cities in the country. I say that from experience of living here for over 20 years. In my time living here I’ve experienced racism firsthand. Walking downtown approaching a white person I have saw them cross the street and walk on the other side simply because I’m black. I have went to restaurants and been discriminated against just because of my skin color. I have applied for jobs and been turned down and saw lesser applicants of another color be picked over me. Me personally I’m not a racist or anything close to it. I enjoy spending time with other cultures and races. Its like this city is stuck in a time warp from the 1800’s. Just last week a thriving bar in the Soulard neighborhood was shut down simply because most of their patrons were black in color. I have been to bars in the downtown area and told that my boots were the wrong type of boots or my shorts were too long or my t-shirt was white and looked through the window and see white people that are in the same is exact outfit that I have on but they were let in and I was not. The only difference that I could observe between me and the other guests were I was black and they were white. I have worked at bars and have been told by management to not let large groups of blacks in but a party bus with thirty whites on it would pull up and they......
