The DIVISION of POWERS
PART. II. FEDERAL RESPONSIBILITIES
Section. 6. A national hard crimes only agency:
Section. 5. One national armed hard crimes division:
Subject to Citizen and Judiciary oversight to check abuse of power, one national policing department will eliminate costs, inefficiency, corruption, expensive and dangerous investigation overlap, and competition for “collars” between agencies. These armed cops will specialize in aggravated assault, armed robbery, human trafficking, prostitution, rape, burglary, fraud, racketeering, gaming, organized crime and the like. Investigatory work done by researchers and analysts in office will be a check on corruption by police on the street. Body cams and GPS on all officers will reduce wrong doing, over staffed responses, do-nothing deployments and personal errands on department time.
PART. III. STATE RESPONSIBILITIES
Section. 5. An unarmed soft crimes department:
Unarmed specialists in their problem area, a paid Social Worker and a volunteer Peacemaker will deal with misdemeanors: a troubled couple, petty thief, misbehaving addict, a wronged child. Cool headed locals from the community they serve, these here-to-help public servants will offer deals and programs instead of fines, fees and jail time that disrupt work and paychecks, and make offenders less stable, more desperate and more likely to mess up.
Both divisions will share information and innovations.
