    Police Quota's

    Let's have an intelligent debate that does not have to do with religion for once.

    Police Quota's, are they corrupting the police force to purposely hunt down the civilians? Or are they here for a decent purpose? Would lowering the Quota amount have any positive impact on a normal drivers commute at the end of each month, rather than being paranoid at every turn?

    Discuss.

    Give police the ability of critical thinking, and the problem would be solved

    Not necessarily. Certains towns in Jersey's Quota's are so high that they have to pull people over just for the sake of pulling people over. Critical thinking will only wok in the scenario of a much lower quota.

    Too much rules prevents thinking, which in turn prevents critical thinking and "common sense"

    Police quotas breed corruption. I fail too see why they are even here in the first place, they seem to serve no purpose but to piss people off. They only thing they could do to make it worse is if they got paid commission.

    Sadly this is true. My father is a retired 32 year veteran police officer, and I have personally seen the damage these quotas due. If an officer does not make their quota, they face reprimand, punishment, and in extreme cases, even demotion. Its institution takes good cops, and forces them to search for the smallest error in citizens, in order to protect themselves.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    The sad part is many police officers have common sense, however these quota's prevent them from using it.

    I honestly wouldn't doubt it if NJ was the first to pay officers commission on tickets. We already have state troopers that make six digit figures.

    It's disgusting, gone are the good old days of seeing an officer and running up to say hello. Now it's "oh. shit. a cop."

    Uh.....that is commission. Their salary gets funding from those tickets.

    Its all in the implementation.

    Good.
    Police quota's have a purpose. The purpose is so that people don't just slack off and don't pull anyone over. There has to be a police presence or else shit gets ugly. Also in most cases quota's = pay. The police force is severely underfunded in most places and that helps them keep up their pay.


    Bad.
    The reason these exist is because the government is shit with finance. If police were funded properly instead of these ridiculous shitheads in office, then we'd have no real reason other than police presence. BUT if you live in any slightly urban enviroment, thats always obvious that the cops are around. The quotas are almost stupid because it becomes a secondary tax on citizens who really do nothing wrong. THere is a difference for pulling someone over for speeding and pulling 10 people over in a row for going 1-2 over.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Anywho the quota is a bad idea because its implemented in the wrong scenario all the time. I mean there its just accepted as regularity "just because" now.
