Term Paper Presentation Criminal Justice 190

greetings my name is Maurice woods this is my term paper presentation for criminal justice 190 the subject matter of my paper is the high crime rates in United States and the low crime rates in Japan in 2008 the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime came out with the report that less than one out of 100,000 people in Japan were victims of homicide where in the United States that was one five almost five and a half to one hundred thousand or victims of homicide such a noticeable gap I use that as a subject matter for my term paper now on my research for this paper I read articles and research papers about how the different contrast between the two nations such as Japan has very high literacy rate they are very high on educational standards there they have a lot very low unemployment rate there’s also Japan is a very homogeneous society 95 to 96 percent of the population in Japan or Japanese and there’s also the geographical location of Japan being an island so they’re cut off from certain influences another factor and this is also the people of Japan the cultures and the traditions that they have they they’re taught at a very young age about moral conduct their philosophy in Japan is mostly about society and how to behave in society their motto is don’t burden another people with your problems always think of the society before you think of yourself they also have strict gun laws and you can own a gun in Japan but you have to go through a lot of Hoops tax the owner gun and there’s also zero tolerance for drugs so there’s no drugs being used in Japan legally and so during my research I found that there’s definitely a big difference between Japan the United States and the United States or more geared toward individualism sort of everybody wants to be noticed is they don’t really think of society first and the United States also is a very large melting pot of cultures and races and religions which sometimes doesn’t really help in certain matters as we’re seeing right now in the news so while I was researching this and then when I came to the criminal of the critical matters analysis I had we have to find an original solution you know with our term paper for the criminal justice system so what I came up with is something while I was living in Japan for the past few years is that when you would walk around a city most of the cities had two or three police boxes these little police boxes were small buildings where people can go and file a report if your bike is stolen or if there’s some other kind of problems they can go there there’s usually an officer on duty there’s a building is made for two or three officers it’s a small little office so they can buy reports and so forth and a lot of times a lot of policemen there though go and have the walk around foot patrols and also the door doors and a specific neighborhood and they we have something similar to that in the United States I live in Santa Monica there used to be a substation on the pier the mostly for tourists and people who are on the beach and then there’s even a substation in New York City we’re in Times Square but that’s a very large substation they have a holding cell in this station they have a visitor center probably houses 20 officers so I want to kind of take that concept of the substation and put it to a city like they do in Japan so melting you know sort of both of what what they do little substations in Japan and in the larger substations that they have your United States but the substations in the United States aren’t really being used very well so what I wanted to do is where I came up with is in a city most of the police station there’s a single police station in the sea but in a city there’s usually three or four fire departments or fire stations in a city mr. Cheeseman if there’s a fire they can get to a fire very quickly so my idea is to put a mini-sub state police station next to the fire stations and most of these fire stations or city owns so you don’t have to really worry about buying property or renting an office and so we can either try to put a police station inside of a fire station or put in an adjacent building next to the fire station because most of the police and the firemen they know each other they’re always dispatched just you know same calls there’s a fire the firemen take care of the fire the police will take care of the crowd traffic accidents the same situation so they know each other so they’re used to working with each other so all this should there shouldn’t be a problem with work you know working right next to each other in the same building or the next building over so what I thought was either have one of those shacks next to the building like the guard shacks they would have in like check points to get in restricted areas where there’s enough room in the building for three people and communications and and so forth some something similar that sort of like a stationary police vehicle just there where there’s a policeman always available so then in these booths you can have a policeman there if there’s extra people they can always do foot patrol or they can go door-to-door or do whatever they need you know other duties that they can do and not only well that hopefully will deter crime because people can see that the police are there and they’re closer to the neighborhood also have faster reactions maybe maybe to get to that specific neighborhood and you know also help with community relations you know people can visit the police while they’re there they don’t they can go there to file a report instead of going a little way downtown to the police station and that way hopefully the community relations will get better with the policeman and the community there and so I thought that would be a great idea to try to help reduce crime by putting more police in specific areas that they need to be so that concludes my presentation for my term-paper and if you have any questions just feel free to leave questions and I’ll be glad to answer them and thanks for listening
