Ever since the dawn of organized society, there has been a need for capable guardians or what we now know as law enforcement agencies. In our present time, we have different levels of law enforcement agencies starting with local, state, and federal. Local law enforcement provides service to its designated jurisdiction which most of the time is one city. State law enforcement provides service to the entire state the agency is based in, and finally, federal law enforcement has a nation wide jurisdiction. In the following paragraphs, these different levels of law enforcement agencies will be discussed in detail about their history and function.
The first Europeans who landed on our shores had to devise a system to effectively protect themselves and their property from the natives, who did not want to share their land. All able-bodied men and young boys were responsible for policing the community, after things became fairly settled and maintaining order was a simple task, the new colonies created Justices of the Peace. Justices of the Peace were unpaid community elected officials that patrolled the colony and kept the peace, but as colonies grew into towns and towns into cities, the Justices of Peace were not enough. The city of Boston established Night Watch in 1636, which worked well, as long as the area remained rural and pastoral. In 1651, New York City established the Shout and Rattle Watch, and by 1705 the city of Philadelphia was populated enough to divide into ten different patrol areas for their Night Watch. By 1844, New York and Philadelphia had a 24 hour a day independent police force, one daytime patrol, and one night watch patrol. Often times, these police forces were headed by police chiefs who were appointed and accountable to political bosses, which…...

Islam Law

... jurisdiction of the High Courts in respect of any matter within the jurisdiction of the Shariah Court - I am therefore of opinion that when there is a challenge to jurisdiction. as here, the correct approach is to firstly see whether the Shariah Court has jurisdiction and not whether the State Legislature has power to enact the law conferrin- jurisdiction on the Shariah Court." (page 800) It would seem that the Shariah Courts have become an integral part of the court system in Malaysia. In order for it to be accepted as such. it is necessary for the judges and officials of the Shariah Courts to show that they are as capable of dispensing justice as the civil courts. In the past when they were treated as inferior courts and neglected in many ways. there were no doubt grounds to find excuses for the system of justice in the Shariah Courts. Now that they have became better organised. equipped and respected it will be possible for the Shariah Courts to show their worth and capabilities. In order to make the public and especially the non-Muslims, Citizens in Malaysia less apprehensive and critical of their existence and work. it will be necessary for the Shariah Courts to show that they are capable of giving fair and equitable justice. It is not enough to speak about Islamic justice, it is necessary to demonstrate it. For those who judge the Shariah Courts it is necessary not only to hear with their ears but to see or hear with their eyes. it is only if the Shariah Court......

Are Women Capable of Serving in Combat Roles in the Military Psychologically?

...Are women capable of serving in combat roles in the military psychologically? Kevin Carpenter BCOM/275 July 16th, 2012 Sandra Payne ABSTRACT According to an article in the Huffington Post women handle combat stress as well as men (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/08/women-combat-stress_n_873381.html). It is the purpose of this paper to show that psychologically women do not handle combat stress as well as men. Through research I will show that women have a higher chance of suffering from Military Sexual Trauma (MST) and have increased risk of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The definition of MST used by the VA is given by U.S. Code (1720D of Title 38). It is “psychological trauma, which in the judgment of the VA mental health professional, resulted from a physical assault of a sexual nature, battery of a sexual nature, or sexual harassment which occurred while the Veteran was serving on active duty or active duty for training.” Sexual harassment is further defined as “repeated, unsolicited verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature which is threatening in character.” In more concrete terms, MST includes any sexual activity where you are involved against your will (http://www.ptsd.va.gov/public/pages/military-sexual-trauma-general.asp ). PTSD as covered by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs can occur after a traumatic event. A traumatic event is something terrible and scary that you see, hear about, or that happens to you like combat...

... probable in the course of a civil court trial; however the options for appeals are virtually zero in the arbitration. This is really a risk for parties and they should carefully assess before engaging in arbitration, as well as when considering the methods for resolving their disputes. Lack of Precedents: Because the arbitration decisions are not public there is a lack of access to precedents on previous arbitration decisions. Furthermore, it is not the same to litigation, arbitration is a limited period of discovery, which can lead to surprise evidence during an arbitration process, which a party may or may not be able to effectively argue at the time of their arbitration hearing. These factors contribute to less certainty by the parties on the outcome of arbitration. Subject Matter Not Capable of Settlement: The subject matter of the dispute is not capable of settlement by arbitration under the law of the relevant state, for example criminal matters or matters of public law. In some disputes, some parts of complaint may be arbitrable and other parts may be not. For example, in a dispute of patent infringement, arbitrator would have no power to order the relevant body to rectify any patent registration based upon its determination. If my company wishes to expand into China, I will choose arbitration in the event of a legal dispute. Firstly, I want to maintain the business relationship. When my company expands to another country, it will be difficult to make......

Law Paper

...This paper will explain a brief history of the background of the police agencies and their jurisdiction concerning local, state, and federal law enforcement. Each falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security. This paper will also cover a brief overview of each department’s responsibilities in regards their primary purpose. The historical history of police agencies was organized in the Western world. During this time, colonists used the English style of policing. The large extent of American Policing was formed by the British Model. Except for the military intervention, law enforcement was not organized until close to year 1200. When an individual committed a crime and was indentified, an organized posse pursued him or her. The posse was led by a shire reeve (county leader) or by a mounted officer (Schmalleger, "Chapter 5: Policing: History and Structure," 2011). The words sheriff and constable originated from these early terms. Early policing relied on bailiffs or watchmen. Bailiffs were in charge of looking for suspicious activities. Bailiffs also handle any issues, which created both a night watch and day ward. In 1829 Sir Robert Peel created the first modern police agency in London called the Metropolitan Police Act of 1829. Sir Robert Peel created the London police force because he wanted to provide citizens with real policing. He believed that prevention of crime could be possible without intruding into the lives of the citizens. The...

Labour law regulates not processes, and social relations of subjects of labour relations, that is, the social forms of labour.

Employment law contains rights and obligations of workers and employers. Employment law is characterized by a combination of centralized and local regulations. In the local regulations adopted by agreement of the parties shall be determined daily working hours, set at rest (break), consistent recording of leave and other issues in detail regulate the working conditions of employees. It is important that the rules of local acts do not conflict with federal law.

A body corporate thus made capable by statues cannot lose its individuality by issuing the bulk of its capital to one person whether he be a subscriber or not.” The significance of the decision in the Salomon case can be said to have three dimensions.

...Ohio V. Robinette Presented By: Ricky Mendez December 1, 2011 Outline I. The Case Ohio V. Robinette II. Trial Court Out Come III. Appeals Court’s Decision The Case Ohio V. Robinette In Ohio v. Robinette, 519 U.S. 33 (1996), the U.S. Supreme court held that the Fourth Amendment does not require police officers to inform a motorist at the end of a traffic stop that they are free to go before seeking permission to search the motorist’s car (Wikipedia 2011). In the case, respondent Robert D. Robinette was stopped for speeding by Deputy Roger Newsome of the Montgomery County Sheriff Office, since he had no prior violation; the officer gave him a verbal warning and returned his driver’s license(Cornell University Law School 1996). Shortly After, the deputy asked Robinette, before he gets going whether he was carrying any illegal contraband, weapons, drug’s, or such things in his car. That’s when Robinette answered that he did not have any of those things in his car. Then the deputy asked him if he would let him search the car for such things and Robinette gave consent to a search of the car. At the same time Robinette, felt like he had to let the officer search the car because he did not know that he could have simply said no and been free to go. Robinette, along with many other citizens feel that they do not have a choice in denying a request by a police officer. They are not familiar with the laws and rights that they have, especially during a routine...

... securities exchange or regularly quoted in an over-the-counter market by one or more members of a national or affiliated securities association." N.Y. Bus. CORP. LAW § 620(c) (McKinney Supp. 1967). REV. , 1969] MODER.N CORPORA T- DEC1SIONAliA,\ G corporations all of whose stock is atomistically dispersed. Considerations of public policy, other than the protection of the fair expectations and economic interests of shareholders, are neutral: There is nothing to indicate that either management, client-groups, or the shareholders themselves are capable of determining what the general public interest requires, or willing to put that interest ahead of their personal interests. Nor is there anything to indicate that the personal interests of any one of these classes is more or less close to the general public interest than those of the others. Nevertheless, where all the stock is atomistically dispersed, elimination or reduction of voting rights could be theoretically justified on the ground that it is less likely to frustrate shareholder expectations than would be the case where large holdings were present. But even if such treatment could be theoretically justified, it seems unlikely that a statutory definition could be formulated which would adequately identify such corporations. Such a definition -could not be drafted in terms of number of shareholders: Ford, with 433,000 shareholders, and duPont, with 241,000, both have large concentrated blocks of shares...

Law/531 Business Law

...Week 3 Individual Assignment Luis A. Campudoni LAW/531 Business Law Prof. Marlene Wilhite February 19, 2010 Legal Issues in Contract Fulfillment Agreements are a hot and critical topic in business agreements today. How do entities engaging in business contracts conclude in a consensus of the clauses, terms, and expectations of the project seem to fail at times due to expected and / or unexpected factors. This seems to be the case of the business contract between Span Systems and Citizen-Schwarz AG (C-S) where performance and deadline problems have emerged and is presenting a risk to the project status. Due to these factors C-S is now considering closing the contract with Span Systems terminating the project as it is. This request presents certain legal aspects that need to be considered before proceeding to minimize losses from both parties. In order to determine the proper path to follow I have provided a summarized analysis on the identification of problems, actions to avoid risks, legal principles in favor, and the recommendation of a final solution below. Situation: a) C-S is requesting Span Systems to conclude operations immediately due to poor quality on delivered project results so far and because Span Systems has not been able to stay on agreed schedule. b) Span Systems states that the approval and review process from C-S for the project was to extent because of an internal change in the project management structure from C-S’s part. As a result of...

Law Enforcer

...The Job of Police Officers A police officer’s duty is to maintain public order, preventing, and detecting crime. The concept of police officers, also known as cops, and law enforcement has been around ever since the since ancient time had a theory that an organization of “peacekeepers” would reduce the crime and violence being committed. This theory stuck with society and is still around today. People of law enforcement have a mission when they step into their police car, that mission is to enforce the rules of conduct or law. Of course, accomplishing this mission can be dangerous. Often when a cop leaves his or her house to go to work worries start to set it, such as “will I be coming back home when my day is over” or “will a simple traffic stop go sour and someone ends up dead?” These thoughts are a part of the stress that comes with the job and most people are trained to deal with this stress. Speaking of training, there are classes that a high school student can take to prepare for a career in law enforcement. Psychology, sociology, foreign languages, and computer courses are recommended for those students who plan to take criminal justice as their higher education major. Participating in sports can improve your chances on becoming an officer of law because it improves strength and endurance. Other student activities can be helpful in this career because they help to improve leadership skills and other publications. Every law enforcement agency has different...
