Policing, in general, carries a significant role in society that cannot be overlooked. The questions under research may be various, although some require discussion the most. Police as a system aimed at providing safety and protection for a community has undergone some significant changes, yet some questions regarding its function remain unanswered. For instance, how can the arrest experience for people be changed to provide more justice? It is supposed that if the police were more in favor of the citizens, rather than on the opposite side, it would lead to better communication during the encounter, regardless of its outcome (Worden & McLean, 2017). Therefore, if there is a possibility of a shift in the methods applied by the police during the encounters with citizens might be a relatively important question for the nearest future.
There are other questions regarding the topic that might be worthy of discussion. Transparency, for instance, is an issue and requires further exploration because it lacks accountability for those who violate the guidelines. The bias problem and cultural competency may also need to be addressed, especially recently, as many cases involve this component. It results in a lack of justice and excess prejudice present while handling cases. However, adapting the police to technology might not be as important as other aspects as it is quite an apparent element of evolution in general and may happen regardless of the effort put into it. However, engaging the young generation and preventing juvenile crime might be as important as other aspects. It is a question regarding the future generation that is to live in the world in the future. As was stated previously, there is a need to ask questions regarding better communication and understanding between the community and the police and if there will be a shift in attitude for both sides.
