The first written assignmentstatesthat you should discuss the pros and cons of a national law enforcement agencyand how this impacts the future of policing, our nation and even smallcommunities. As you work on this assignment, one of the first areas you need tothink of is the fact that the military will never police us as a nation. Withthat said, is a national law enforcement agency something like the military? Asa positive, the national law enforcement agency could help small departmentsthat are behind on training and equipment. This would then in turn allow forbetter services for citizens, however policing and its needs are differentthroughout the nation.Required TextGaines, L., & Worrall, J.(2012).
