Criminal Justice

It is generally agreed that the three main functions of police agencies are Crime Control, Traffic Control and Maintaining Public Order. Police Administrators are responsible for assuring that these tasks are done in the most effective and efficient manner possible for their jurisdiction. Do you agree that this is the role of policing? Are there other tasks that the police should be doing that they are not doing? Are there things that they should not be doing that they presently do? How do you assure as a Police Administrator that the tasks are being completed effectively and efficiently?
