Examining Police Officer Resistance To Change And Body-Worn Cameras, Wayne Jakobitz Jr. Apr 2018

Examining Police Officer Resistance To Change And Body-Worn Cameras, Wayne Jakobitz Jr.

Scholar Week 2016 - present

Police departments are adopting the body-worn camera as an important tool in the restoration of trust and accountability for police officers. Although body-worn cameras can be beneficial to their work, police officers might resist the use of cameras. The purpose of the current study was to examine whether experiences with technology or the perceived usefulness of body-worn cameras predict resistance to the cameras in order to determine where resistance to body-worn cameras possibly exists. The current study employed a quantitative design that examined 48 (n = 48) police officers’ responses about resistance to body-worn cameras in relationship to the following variables ...

From The Capitol To The West Wing: Making The Most Of Federal Law And U.S. Government Information On The Web, Anne Burnett

Continuing Legal Education Presentations

When searching for federal government materials and federal law on the web, researchers are more likely to encounter an overabundance of information than a lack thereof. Fortunately, free federal government and non-government sites have made great strides in improving accessibility to these materials through better organization and finding tools.

This paper directs researchers to both official and unofficial free sites providing access to federal government materials, including federal law. These sites are an alternative to fee-based services, including Westlaw, LexisNexis, Bloomberg BNA and FastCase, although most do not contain all of the bells and whistles that these commercial services offer ...


Correctional Officers, Step Off The Treadmill Of Power: The Lack Of Moral Authority In U.S. Correctional Officers, Kavida Naidu Jan 2018

Correctional Officers, Step Off The Treadmill Of Power: The Lack Of Moral Authority In U.S. Correctional Officers, Kavida Naidu

Power, Voice, Mandate: Moral Authority in the Contemporary Age

The abuse of authority and power is commonly encountered in different institutions. Similarly, prisons are not immune to the overuse of authority and power. Correctional officers exercise their authority on inmates in ways that result in a prison culture, which is filled with violence and dehumanization. Correctional officers often consider inmates as morally inferior beings, who deserve to be punished beyond sentence, for the crimes that they have committed are inexcusable. However, the abrasive environment of prisons places correctional officers in a situation where they eventually adopt the prison identity and find themselves trapped in this brutish incarcerated culture. This ...

Space Traffic Management Conference

UTM, ATM, STM… slices of the sky?

A New Future? The Catholic Church, Grassroots Justice, And Accountability, Regina Menachery Paulose

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

Between the 1970s and 1980s, Guatemalans, particularly the indigenous populations, were targets of a state-sponsored genocide. Several years after the genocide, Catholic Bishop Juan Gerardi of Guatemala City took the lead in creating the Recovery of Historical Memory Project which was an independent investigation into the events of the genocide. Gerardi was murdered before the report was made public. This paper will briefly discuss Gerardi’s work and his contribution to local justice in Guatemala. The author will then explore what contributions the Catholic Church could make in creating similar fact-finding missions. Could a grassroots mechanism such as the one ...
