Crime, Public Order, Brawl


The goal of the study was to identify the causes of violent altercations between neighbors as well as challenges to and police efforts to enforce the law in fight cases under the purview of the Belawan Harbor Police. To grasp or understand the observed behavior by examining document studies utilizing various data in the form of regulations or positive norms in the linked legal system, the author utilizes a qualitative method of descriptive data in the form of written words or writings from persons. According to the study's findings, citizens who live under the jurisdiction of the Belawan Harbor Police Station frequently engage in brawls, which are influenced by criteria such as age, environment, education level, and family background. Brawls amongst residents are frequently sparked by issues of group representation, business considerations, retaliation, discord among residents, a lack of activities in the neighborhood, and police efforts to combat crimes against residents. In preventing violence such as brawls between citizens, it is hoped that legal awareness can be created, the community must avoid attitudes and conditions that can trigger fights and are expected to be able to work together both with law enforcement and other related parties.
