An important aspect of policing is to hold law enforcement accountable for their actions. This can be more challenging and difficult than it looks on the surface.

An important aspect of policing is to hold law enforcement accountable for their actions. This can be more challenging and difficult than it looks on the surface. We want law enforcement to uphold the law, but also have the ability to use discretion as necessary. We also allow officers to make quick decisions based on the known knowledge at the time. Sometimes mistakes happen, and sometimes officers abuse their power and authority.
For this assignment, I want you to see what is being done to hold officers more accountable. I would like you to look at either departments themselves or current/pending legislation that is being drafted to hold officers accountable for their actions. What does this entail? I would like you to include a link to your source.
