In the 1800s Sir Robert Peel played a significant role in developing the Metropolitan Police Act which led to the creation of modern-day policing (Novak et al. 2017). Due to the history of London policing model, integrating a global comparison on the course topics will allow students to critically evaluate law enforcement within a global context. For example, students can explore questions such as; how has policing evolved in London since the 1800s? What methods/programs are used to build community relations with the police department and the London communities? Do citizens in London have the same legal protection as U.S. citizens when interacting with law enforcement? Does the City of London Police provide cultural awareness training for police officers? What is the role of technology? Are women underrepresented compared to the United States? Topics discussed in this course include the regulation of everyday life, police corruption, race relations, and policing major demonstrations and riots among more topics related to law enforcement and crime in London.
