Community Policing Strategies   [open pdf - 59KB]

"With rising concerns about violence, drugs, and crime, citizen collaboration with the police is increasingly seen as the most effective way to safeguard lives, neighborhoods, and cities. Community policing represents a shift from reactive, incident-driven police service to a proactive, problem-solving approach. A National Institute of Justice (NIJ)-sponsored 1993 survey of more than 2,000 law enforcement agencies found strong support nationwide for the community policing approach coupled with a need for developing training for practitioners."
