USA Police Department

Once again in our nation we are confronted with the reality of race and our police . In America of late this interaction has created discord and failed outcomes from massive arrests, riots, uprisings and even deaths to endless lawsuits and cities with massive budget mandates in funding their police departments. As a nation we have endured endless discussions, meetings, workshops, prayer meetings, riots, as well as numerous  DOJ investigations and even complaints to the United Nations. Americans are arming themselves with an array of guns and security devices . Many communities are hiding behind firewalls, gates and private security forces . Our police are experiencing fear and morale problems that have lead to slowdowns , blue days to  the outright failure by many police officers  to honor their oaths to protect and serve. We are in the midst of a law endorsement crisis and it grows daily.

The country  cannot continue to function and prosper with the current state of policing in our nation. The basic respect for law and order and the rule of law is being challenged in our streets, courtrooms and boardroom and family kitchens across the country.  America today is in a uncivil war between the police and communities of all colors and hues.  No longer do many Americans believe  our police seek to serve and protect. America is  coming apart at the seams and no amount of military equipment provided by the federal government nor another  DOJ investigation will bring this disconnect to an end.

The country needs a game changer an epic development which will usher in not only shock and awe but create a blueprint and a long overdue measured approach that will enhance the pursuits of life, liberty and happiness in any ever zip code and venue in America.  We need a National Police Department operating under a federal model with a uniform code of conduct , polices and protocols . The nation deserves a standard of policing  that does not change depending on the zip code or the hue of skin of the police officer or the suspect . The citizens of America deserves a full array of superior best practices from recruiting police officers to protocols for the use of lethal force. We need best practice standards for training as well as evaluation performance , including the most effective paradigms that enhance crime prevention and investigations to strategies for effective crowd controls and homeland alerts and crisis . 

We should shutter very police department in the nation and replace it with a new operating system . Now is the time for a American Police Department which serves all Americans regardless of race, creed, and venue.

A National Police Department has the promise of bringing the benefits of economies of scale to cities, villages, hamlets drowning in the sea of red tape from funding police operations  to paying for massive lawsuits caused by incompetent and obsolete policing models. A singular police department  which can install recruiting standards and attend to the demands of unions is how to end the police crisis in our nation. A national blueprint based upon a template of justice and competence is ripe for launching today .

The specter of Justice in America is losing ground to the failed operating templates of our obsolete police departments  unable to evolve and keep up with America circa 2015
