One of the key issues that needs to be addressed through laws and policies are the rights of police personnel. Yes, the police personnel need their rights protected, and one of the best methods is a clear code of criminal procedure and a well structured and organized standard operating procedure. Police need to know what their rights are and under what authority they operate. They also need internal assurances through policy that they will not be subject to autocratic rule and arbitrary decisions made by the police leadership. That type of operation which is more like a dictatorship, only has the police "walking on eggshells" and in fear of their own police command structure.
