What I have seen in my travels across this country is the dedication, the commitment, and the resolve of our brave men and women in law enforcement to improving policing, to embracing the 21st Century Task Force recommendations, and to continuing to have a dialogue that makes our country safer for all.
Policing is an integral part of governance. It is a whole, but it is also a part of the larger whole. Just like a human organ like the head, it’s got intelligence, stamina, strategy and surveillance. But it cannot function independently in the absence of other life-sustaining organs.
Good counter-terrorism is when you have close relationships between the policing and intelligence services.
Invest more in policing, not less.
We need to hire more black police officers in this country because these are good jobs, and African Americans should have their fair share of good jobs. But we shouldn’t do it because we think that’s going to change policing. We have to push for police reform in other ways.
We can find any number of ways to criminalise begging, but when we do so, aren’t we attacking the problem from entirely the wrong angle? Banning begging or rough sleeping treats street homelessness as a lifestyle choice that can be discouraged through threats of legal action and heavy-handed policing.
I think that Peter Mandelson, particularly in relation to the issue of policing, made a huge mess of it. He allowed himself to be manipulated by the securocrats within the British establishment.
It’s not for me to challenge operational policing based on one story in the media.
As an early advocate for neighborhood policing, I’ve been heartened to see the tangible impact of police officers spending less time in their station houses and more time on our street corners, developing collaborative relationships with residents and businesses that help us fight and deter crime.
Strategies that do show evidence of effectiveness include policing that’s focused on high-risk individuals or geographic areas, and/or deterrence-based approaches that hold entire gangs accountable should individual members engage in criminal behavior.
The alt-right for me is primarily a cultural reaction to the nannying and language policing and authoritarianism of the progressive left – the stranglehold that it has on culture.
No one’s policing their own minds more than an author. You spend a lot of time in your own head analysing what you think about things, and a philosophy comes.
Without the U.K. contribution to policing and anti-terrorism, the whole of Europe would be less safe.
Policing was developed, created, and implemented for the elite, and – in the case of the United States – the elites were and almost entirely remain white, upper middle class, cisgender straight men.
Questions have arisen about the policing of science. Who is responsible for the policing? My answer is: all of us.
Police cannot be allowed to continue aggressive, violent, and often unconstitutional policing with impunity.
Black Lives Matter is not just concerned with what happens in policing. The disregard, the disrespect, and the lack of dignity for black life transcends through the fabric of our society.
Because of my struggles and my work, I have the unique ability to be a bridge between the NYPD and our communities, restoring confidence and accountability in policing that is essential to our recovery.
Toughening up, performing masculinity, pretending to enjoy things I didn’t enjoy all enabled me to dodge the gender policing of the adults around me. But the way I really was – the swished hips, the Double-Dutching, the hair flips – seemed to always prevail and attract Dad‘s disdain.
I’m interested in Scotland now and then, how it’s changed. I want to get the reader to think about that by thinking about something from the past. How has society changed, how has policing changed, have we changed philosophically, psychologically, culturally, spiritually?
In the 1990s, we introduced Boston‘s community policing strategy. We reversed the tide of violent crime that threatened our city, and we established a national model for preventing and fighting crime.
Feminism isn’t about curating or policing the boundaries of womanhood.
Reactive and proactive policing are both necessary. Still, we need to lower expectations that such efforts can ever be responsive to crime.

If black lives mattered, I believe that policing and immigration enforcement would not be the devastating force that it is in our communities.
I want to see traditional policing with a modern flavour. I am completely committed to local, visible policing, but we have to modernise. There are such opportunities for people to interact with police through the digital sphere that we have not achieved yet.
‘Line Of Duty‘ is first and foremost a thriller. But I hope it will also be seen as a revisionist commentary on 21st century policing.
American history and the black experience are inextricable. And both are inextricable from policing. Far more often than not, that’s been a good thing.
Through Black Lives Matter and social media, we’ve been able to have a really challenging discussion with America about police and how much it is investing in policing.
The Republican base – the Evangelical get-out-the-vote troops – are going to be devastated when they discover how many closeted gay Republicans were involved in policing Mark Foley in the House of Representatives.
There’s this tendency to be held in great esteem if you are judgmental. A sort of moral policing, being opinionated. What right has one to act like judges? What right has one to police another?
When you hear anyone policing the bodies of trans women, misgendering and othering us, and violently exiling us from spaces, you should not dismiss it as a trans issue that trans women should speak out against. You should be engaged in the dialogue, discourse, and activism that challenges the very fibers of your movement.
When Colin Kaepernick first took a knee, he took it, and he identified police brutality, aggressive policing techniques, he broadened it to things like oppression to inequality.
Without a beat officer system, there can be no crime prevention or supportive investigation. This is the very foundation of sound policing. It is the beat officer who connects with the common man on a daily basis and is the five senses of his area.
During the debates for mayor, I was continually pressed on my position on the policing procedure known as ‘stop and frisk’ – which is actually in law enforcement known as ‘stop, question and frisk’ – and why I believed that, if used properly, it could reduce crime without infringing on personal liberties and human rights.
The use of water cannon could have changed the face of British policing; it would have made a huge difference to British policing.
Opponents of New York City’s proactive style of policing struggle mightily to downplay its most obvious benefit: the largest crime drop on record, concentrated overwhelmingly in minority neighborhoods.
Everybody has a stake in the story of policing.
What I’m really praying is that we, as a people, understand that we are interdependent upon each other. We don’t want police to leave; we want policing in our world. But I think that people aren’t comfortable with each other.
