Topics that you can choose from are:

1. The implications/issues of the collection of DNA samples at the point of arrest, not at post-conviction or post release from prison.  Is it different then collecting or taking of finger prints?  What has the Supreme Court said in regards to this matter?  Are states really doing this now or are there reasons they don’t or can’t do this.  What about security of the information, what could happen if this information was released publicly.  What other concerns are there about taking DNA in this manner?

2. The implications/issues of the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)/Drones by police departments or other federal agencies in the United States.  Should this be allowed, is there a reason is shouldn’t be?  What kind of constitutional issues does this bring up?  What kind of safety issues are there, if any?  Should warrants have to be issued if this technology is used? What other issues does this topic bring up that should be discussed before implementation?

3. The impact of police corruption on police departments and society.  What does this do internally to a police department and how does this impact citizens and their views of policing agencies?  Give examples of specific corruption from a police department and what happened in the aftermath of that corruption.  How does it or can it impact new recruits and their loyalty to the department and other officers?  What can or has happened to those who fight back against corruption?  Is there any kind of reform to handle or deal with corruption in a police department, why do officers become corrupt?  What other outcomes does corruption have on a police department? 

4. The issues/issues related to the use of “non-lethal” or “less than lethal” force by police departments on civilians.  From the use of Tasers, to bean bag rounds, or rubber bullets, and any other method being designed or utilized.  Do officers rely on less than lethal force more now than they use to?  What can happen if less than lethal is used incorrectly, what are the safety issues associated with this issue and weapons that are employed by police departments.  Does this actually work; does this help stop the perpetrators from their actions?  Has this brought about any racial issues with officers
