The Important Role that Law Enforcement Agencies Play in our Society
As a matter of fact, we all know that each and every society has a given set of rules that it has set for its members to live by so as to ensure that there is a harmonious coexistence amongst the members of the particular society. The fact that we must anyway accept is that as good as the laws may be on paper and intention, they will need the backing of a body to look into their enforcement so as to ensure that they do live up to their needs for without this, the laws will be but as good as nothing, meaning nothing in so far as their purpose is meant to be. It is a fact that without the law enforcement agencies and their services, you will not be in a position to find yourself the right body to protect you from the acts of violence and crime that may expose you to harm and loss as a result of crime essentially rendering the laws as good as not being in existence. Given the fact that we, humans, are wired to be social creatures, we will tend to live in those places where we will have to be in interaction with our peers and fellow humans-we just cannot make do in isolation. The fact that you will experience in such a life as a social being is that you will come across those who will not be as ready to live up to the civil expectations of life and will violate your rights as a human being and such as those who will not be quite ready to abide by the set rules to meet their financial, social and moral responsibilities. Such people are the type who will want to steal from you, threaten you and take unnecessary advantage of you. It is for the sake of such miscreants in the society that we have the need of the police, as law enforcement bodies, to be a deterrent against them and as such ensure that all are within the confines of the set laws in so far as they are relating with others in the society.
If there were no law enforcement agencies, we would have to on our own take all them who wrong us to the magistrates’ court. You can as well enjoy the services of the law enforcement bodies in the sense that they will ensure that all the relevant investigations into a crime on you or your property is done and the concerned are booked and brought to justice.
