I am in total agreement with your opinion that it is vital for law enforcement and other stakeholders who work for and with victims to begin by taking care of themselves before thinking about how to care for others (Bateman, 2019). I must admit that you have deployed the pathos strategy by showcasing to the audience the dire need for law enforcement agencies to begin by ensuring their safety to be effective in their duties. Furthermore, you have brought the limelight on why arson does not gain the attention required despite being a crime. Arson is a unique type of crime because its investigations phase entails investigating officers to unravel the perpetrators’ intention; if the investigations that there was ill intention to obtain insurance benefits and other gains, the case is not reported. Lastly, I concur with you that identifying hotspots is the first critical step law enforcement can take to address serial killers who target prostitutes.
I must commend your efforts to explore compassion fatigue and how it relates to victimization; I agree with your proposal that law enforcement agencies must have a complete series of serious conversations within themselves to unravel this puzzle. I like that you have mentioned that they must discuss the most suitable strategy they can deploy as humans to address the issue. Consequently, re-victimization is a common trend, especially on rape victims; it is crucial to understand those rape victims who have been previously victimized are vulnerable targets (Littleton et al., 201). Subsequently, I support your idea that law enforcement should coordinate with other agency including victims, to encourage them to open up and report to the relevant authorities. Your question is also critical because it seeks to determine the credibility of parents’ safety measures to protect their children through their phones.
