I've read quite a lot about US policing and relationships between communities and the police, mostly (but not exclusively) focusing on the tragic events in Ferguson, Mo.. I've always had a positive view of the British police, and feel that the majority of them are reasonable in their actions, and hardworking in their jobs. I also think that police corruption here is rare, although it's certainly not unheard of.
It interests me that whilst most people I know in Britain feel that the police serve their community and are genuinely dedicated to public safety, attitudes in the USA, as well as in various other parts of Europe and the rest of the globe, are much more sceptical about the idea that the police are there to protect everyone.
So I'm interested to hear - what do you think of the Police in your region/country, and do you think law enforcement in your area is significantly better or worse than in other parts of the world?
