In today’s world it is of utmost importance that law enforcement understands how to determine culpability with regards to criminal activity as definitions surrounding what constitutes a particular crime can be confusing. Just as important is the ability to know when to use force, what constitutes use of force, and how that force can and cannot be applied. In determining culpability one must remember that criminal responsibility also has the potential to be used to excuse a person from acts committed that could result in arrest, incarceration, or other legal sanctions (Gardner & Anderson, 2012, p. 109).

What is insurance?
Insurance is a two-way legal agreement between the insurer and the customer. The customer, which may be an individual, business, or other entity, agrees to pay the premiums as required, in exchange for monetary protection from the insurer for any possible substantial loss. Customers usually obtain insurance, not to cover the trivial incidents of life orVIEW DOCUMENT

An example of a negligence or malpractice in a business is handling records and the record keeper for a business has mishandled the records and files get lost or mixed up.

Offences of strict liability are those, which do not require any mens

However some crimes are possible to commit without any knowledge,

these crimes under strict liability.

The politics of nursing have been characterized by low collaboration, strong opposition, and women’s rights.

The industry has also struggled to obtain landmark legislative goals set forth in 1965 by its national association, the American Nurses Association (ANA).
