All over the country on October 7th, there were little block parties in different urban areas. These little block parties were called “National Night Out” and they actually have a huge purpose – celebrating the efforts that the communities make toward fighting criminal activity in their neighborhoods. These events have been going on for a few years now, but they have started to gain more steam as more communities start the fight against crime in their communities.

One of the biggest reasons that this has become popular is because of how many parents want to make sure that their children are safe. They work hard and they work together to be certain that all of their kids can feel safe when they’re walking home from school or from other activities that they may be participating in. It also gives kids a bit of a safety net with other kids that may be living in the community that they live in as well.

Of course, National Night Out isn’t just a celebration of crime prevention. It is a way for the community to come together and meet each other. That way, everyone can join forces in keeping everyone safe and accountable. It helps the kids learn who people in the neighborhood are, so if something happens or they’re in trouble, they are able to find people who are safe that can help them as quickly as possible. It creates community and security – it’s almost a sign that people want to go back to the way things used to be, when it “took a village to raise a child.”  By having the community united, it’s easier to track down people who are committing crimes and connect with local law enforcement so that the community can get what it needs in order to continue to stay safe.

National Night Out is becoming a lot more popular for communities all over the country, and as more people come together, crime is going to continue to decrease. The hope is that even more communities will be involved in National Night Out next year, so that more communities can have the benefit of lowering crime rates and feeling safe where they’re at. The National Night Out website has a lot of great resources that you can use if you want to help reduce crime in your own community or if you need or want to get more information about the program.

As we all know at this point, there are a lot of things going on in the world of the police force, especially since the events in Ferguson, Missouri occurred a couple of months ago. But what can we do about all of the problems related to racial profiling? Are there ways that we can try and reduce this problem in a way that is both safe and effective? The answer is a resounding yes – and some people think that body camera will play a role in helping to eliminate these problems. 

Personal injury lawyers Boston stated that the New York Police Department and  will start preparing a small number of its officers with wearable camcorders, an experimental run system intended for equipping the country’s biggest police force with innovation that guarantees more noteworthy responsibility. A sum of 60 cams will be sent in the advancing months in five high-wrongdoing police regions, one in each of the city’s five precincts, Commissioner William J. Bratton said last week.  

It’s the newest technology, according to the commissioner, and he has shown a number of people how the devices fit on policemen’s outfits. Because of the advances in technology, this is really no different than when police officers started to use hand held radios. It’s just a technology that can add to the efficiency and safety that policemen and policewomen should have when they are out on the streets and keeping people safe. Soon enough, many people believe that these body cams will become as common as the radios are.  

A federal judge a year ago requested the division to test the cams for one year in five areas as a method for assessing their adequacy in controlling illegal stop and search procedures by officers. The court requested an autonomous screen to help set the approach for the cams, however that request has been deferred pending a claim that still has to go through the court system.

Will this actually help reduce racial profiling and other issues that police all over the country have been dealing with? Or will it just be another piece of equipment that will get ignored unless it absolutely had to be used? This trial will hopefully help us gain more of an understanding of what is going on and how it may be able to help police forces all over the country with the current issues that they are facing.
