Attention will be given to what zero tolerance policing encompasses and the theoretical context underlining the topic. The project will also touch upon the several aspects where the strategy is acclaimed, for instance the first application in New York, United States and its effectiveness in reducing crimes, also the approach widespread to the United Kingdom. Nevertheless, in order to, effectively discuss the impact of the approach if it is implemented by the Metropolis Police Service, questionable results of its application in New York and other relevant areas will be discussed. Presented will be a critical review on the effectiveness of the Zero Tolerance Policing using the available research and literature guide, also a theoretical framework behind the project. Concluding will be a recommendation given through a comprehensive study of the evidence collected through the methodological choices made and the data analysis techniques selected on the impact the approach will have to the city of Metropolis once it is implemented by the police service. The discussion on the impact of Zero Tolerance Policing is essential due to the rising concern of whom the approach specifically targets as a crime reduction strategy, specifically focusing on the underclass and the minorities in the society that has deteriorated community relations and has contributed to mistrust towards the police. Moreover, there are deep concerns that the approach fails to address underlying causes of crime that makes it essentially counterproductive in regard to a crime reduction strategy. Therefore, to address some of these issues, the projects will aim at addressing several case studies of Police departments that have implemented the strategy and the outcome they got, in an effort of evaluating the impact Zero Tolerance Policing it will have to the society once Metropolis Police Service implement the strategy.

This article is about zero tolerance policies in the work place. Zero tolerance policies refer to strategies that allow for meager compromise on consequences of certain work place mistakes (Punch, 2007). This may relate to scenarios such as violence, harassment, internet and intranet policies.
The author states that Zero tolerance policy eliminating students who involve themselves in deviant behaviors will prohibit others from becoming disruptive. This will eventually create an improved and peaceful learning environment for the remaining students. These policies are widely spread among the schools in America.
Companies are moving forward with zero tolerance policy in order to address issues related to threat and violence in workplace. The policed has two types of benefits. 1- Clearly defined guideline for expected behavior from employees and also underlined definition of unethical behavior and 2- the policy provides structural framework for company to address issues regarding violence and unaccepted behavior from employees.
This principle, in effect, reverses the burden of proof. The presumption of innocence is replaced by a presumption of guilt.
In contrast, Innes (2003) argues that reassurance or neighbourhood policing should be a key component of a 'total policing' philosophy which recognizes that neighbourhood safety is both objective (local crime rates are falling) and subjective
emotional and psychological. In this study we are trying to find out the extent of the problem and to see if the policy of zero tolerance will be effective in reducing bullying incidents that are taking place. The data has been gathered from a multi-cultural society to ensure that the results are not biased and represent the whole society not just a sub-sector.
This behavioral pattern of the human nature makes the subject of criminal justice an interesting concept to follow. However, it could thus be mentioned that as there is a certain amount of highest common features among the nature of the human kind towards crime it would well be logical to standardize the process of judicial system and thus making the system more clear and approachable.
To achieve this, the department of Zero Tolerance Policing should be made independent so that it may be free from any external interference by "the invisible hand". In the United Kingdom, this policy has been widened to even cover the internet misuse and sexual harassment that were initially not covered.
Cases of knife stabbing, mass shootouts, as well as, physical bullying continue to be significantly challenging issues, especially in public schools. It is irrefutable that, even a single case of student noncompliance poses a significant
