The Role of the Police in Reducing Homicides

The police play an important role in controlling this system, by representing it in a practical and visible way.

Author: José Vincente da Silva | April 2003

The police play a significant role in crime prevention even though some prominent authorities prefer to abdicate almost all responsibility to other social interventions using a defeatist argument that the police do not control the causes of crime and, consequently, can do little. The police really do not control the causes of crime. Crime exists precisely because of other psychological, moral and social factors fail to address these causes.
