Some people have suggested that we can reform the role and function of the police (p.125- 126) by changing police personnel. One way of changing the role and function of policing is through recruitment.

- Higher educational requirements
- Increased diversity (minorities, women, etc.)
- Expanded background checks with a greater emphasis on psychological screening
Discuss and support your position
