Police Officers protect people and property. They patrol the areas they are assigned, which sometimes include entire jurisdictions, respond to calls, enforce laws, make arrests, issue citations, and occasionally testify in court cases.
Technology has made a great impact on Police Officers. They are using social media more often. Soon they will be able to receive text messages, videos and photographs.
Police Officers are wearing body cameras now to reduce the number of complaints.
