Suicide By Proxy: Revisiting The Problem Of Suicide By Cop, Brian Kingshott May 2009

Suicide By Proxy: Revisiting The Problem Of Suicide By Cop, Brian Kingshott

Brian F. Kingshott

This article discusses the problem of suicide by cop, a colloquial term used to describe a suicidal incident whereby the suicidal subject engages in a consciously life-threatening behavior to the degree that it compels a police officer to respond with deadly force. Suicide is a global problem, a leading cause of death in the world, claiming about 30,000 lives in the United States each year, and approximately 1 million annually world-wide. For law enforcement personnel to engage in an intervention strategy to protect the innocent and to prevent suicide is an expected response to the 9-1-1 call. Officers do ...


Participation In Victim-Offender Mediation: Lessons Learned From Observations, Patrick Gerkin May 2009

Participation In Victim-Offender Mediation: Lessons Learned From Observations, Patrick Gerkin

Patrick Gerkin

Victim—offender mediation has grown to establish itself among criminal justice practices as an alternative to traditionally retributive notions of justice.

Restorative practices, including victim—offender mediation, are inclusive practices. Participation is not only encouraged, it is a necessary element for victim—offender mediation to achieve restorative outcomes. Through the use of observations and content analysis of agreements produced in victim—offender mediation, this research uncovers several impediments ...


Women In Policing: Changing The Organizational Culture By Adopting A Feminist Perspective On Leadership, Brian Kingshott Mar 2009

Women In Policing: Changing The Organizational Culture By Adopting A Feminist Perspective On Leadership, Brian Kingshott

Brian F. Kingshott

Issues of leadership identified in the current literature, with particular reference to leadership found in all organizations, are discussed in an attempt to identify aspects of classical leadership that may be of particular value within the police service. Historically little emphasis is placed upon the ethical parameters of policing thereby an organizational culture that has a hyper-masculine social structure to define their norms and that structure is often the catalyst for adverse experiences for female police officers. The police culture is often misogynist but the role of women is important in policing therefore the influence of feminist ethics and descriptors ...
