Emotional intelligence: Rethinking police-community relations
from By Mark Bond
The current perception from the public is that American law enforcement has a problem with community and race relations — especially in urban neighborhoods with high crime rates. Criminal violence is an acceptable norm in many of these communities, and the police often feel like an "eight-hour occupational army" in many violent neighborhoods. For the police officer who is working the streets and trying to make the neighborhoods safe, the personal stress has been heavy.
