Research is a very broad human activity embracing various aspects of man's existence. It is practically a “conception resurrection” concept that deals with all the branches of knowledge. Research work, however, may be limited depending upon the scope of the study being conducted. In law and justice, a research may be undertaken to redefine police as role as some legal adjustments are made to adapt to social change. In law enforcement, research may be done to resolve ethical problems within police agencies. The most common problem areas being explored are in the organizational frontiers, behavioral patterns, processes and procedures and value system.
