Law Enforcement



Most arrests are discretionary, as the police arrest suspects, not convicted felons. So, what you are really against is unwarranted arrests.
The best way to reduce this is provide compensation for anyone arrested but not charged, or where the case is dismissed, proportional to their wasted time.


Private security companies encompass a huge array of specialties, examples are:
  • Traditional uniformed security officers
  • Highly skilled technicians installing security systems
  • The sector includes bio-metrics technicians
  • CCTV operators
  • Close protection officers
  • Community wardens
  • Contract bailiffs
  • Security dog handlers.

Timeline

In Britain the police force was nationalised in 1929

Perfect safety

Government cannot offer perfect safety otherwise they would need a camera in every house.
We are not safe because there is a policeman outside everyone's doors, we are safe because we are concerned.

Don't talk to police

Mr. James Duane, a professor at Regent Law School and a former defense attorney, tells you why you should never agree to be interviewed by the police.

The 5th Amendment ‎(America rights)‎

  • Talking to the police can never help you
  • Admitting guilt will get you no benefit
  • Even telling the truth you can make a mistake that will haunt you
  • Even not making a mistake you might give them something to use.
  • Police may remember the details wrong
  • Your word against theirs
  • Mistaken evidence might contradict you

Pricing in policing -(Jamie Whyte)

How do you communicate to the police what you think the policing priorities should be? Chances are you have little or no influence on this.
What if it was published, a list of tarrifs that would be paid for solved crimes which policing companies could bid for the contract to police?
Say 1mill for a murder, 100k for for serious assualt and 10k for a theft?
A company would be paid the polciing fee, less the cost for each murder, assualt and theft that took place in the term.
We would end up with  tariff-weighted crime prevention. Those that found the most efficient ways of reducing crime could undercut their rivals

Knowing these tarriffs, if you thought they were out of whack, you could lobby your MP, Mayor or policign board.

If the tariff for a murder were 100 times the tariff for a robbery, it would put 100 times the effort into reducing the murder rate. Fine-tuning police priorities would need none of today’s bureaucratic meddling, merely a change in crime tariffs. It would even allow local residents to effectively decriminalise a crime, by setting its tariff to zero.Policing in Britain is expensive and unresponsive to citizens’ preferences. Without profit motive, competition and prices, inefficiency is inevitable.
