From the Paper:

"Currently the role of the police in the United States is to protect the community, and maintain order while enforcing the laws that have been written. Further the police are responsible for detecting and preventing crime, arresting individuals that have committed a crime and seeking justice for their victims. Police endure specific training in regards to the laws set for the state and community in which they are to enforce the law. This training not only teaches them how to fight crime but how to maintain the safety of all citizens at all times within their abilities."
