”  You said, I saw two a few minutes ago. This media person must have a serious problem. ”  Let me explain why there are no more COPS. COP, constable on patrol or community oriented policing. That the real meaning for cop.  Primary duties, protection of the people and property in the area they are assign. In some place this relates to being off duty.

What we have now are Police Officers, Peace Officers. These men and women take on society problems as they develop in real-time. Emergency, domestic disputes, gang shootings, these are the incidents that can prevent a PO from coming home this night or any other day. There are others who make up the body of law enforcement. Detective, Court Officer, investigator, Crime Specialist, Emergency Units, Correction Officer. Designated Peace Officer some who are arm volunteers. Even the sometime hated Marshall and their Deputies, Parole Officers among others who are to implement the rule of law.

Major media coverage has presented vivid picture of Police officers abuse around America, and the general public is asking why?  One reason there are no more cops. PO who knew your name and you his. Officers Joe, Bob, even officer boop. For he would hit you with his night stick to let you know you must follow their direction. Not hurt you that’s why he was officer boop he was given a nick name.

The “Job” is hard work these days as it has always been.  We must find a balance between the greater community and Police Officer the Peace Officer. COPS are long gone in most communities. How we can make the Police Officer COP presents a bigger Q&A I cannot answer at this time. Understanding who they are can be a start. Police management and supervision has a place in cooperation for a better America, for the situation is national. James A. Jenkins Jr. is Counselor Emeritus, an educational provider NYSOASAS

When the doors  for a better America are open great things can take place. An example is when women were allowed to vote due to the 19th amendment enacted in 1920,  portion that were Irish Americans join together to elect a Irish Catholic president the late John F. Kennedy President.” A people who were discriminated for being Irish immigrants,The Tenement People, became the second largest to immigrate to America. They found their way to government employment in big cities, police and firemen.   lets understand more than Irish women and men voted for President JFK, “one could say almost all Irish who could vote supported his election.” Even then it was a tight win.”(President Nixon) It took 40 years to pick such a man after women were included in the American voting process. On the other hand after  Black American population along with other Americans of good faith forged congress to pass the Voting Act of 1965 which enforced the 15th amendment. It took 43 years to elect a Black American to the presidency, Barrack Obama. After hundred of years of slavery and Jim Crow Laws used as an avenue to discriminate, the change laws made change. “President Obama is part Irish as well.” The two groups that suffered the most in American history (Asian, American Indians not far behind) were able to have one of their own elected to president of all the people.  Happy St. Pats Day to all.
