ABSTRACT

Community Policing in Local Police Departments, 1997 and 1999   [open pdf - 241KB]

"The community policing approach to law enforcement seeks to address the causes of crime and reduce the fear of crime and social disorder through problem-solving strategies and police- community partnerships. A fundamental shift from traditional reactive policing, community policing strives to prevent crime before it occurs. As part of an ongoing partnership between the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), data were collected on the community policing practices of State and local law enforcement agencies in 1997 and 1999. The Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics (LEMAS) survey was used to assess the impact of community policing on personnel, training, policies, programs, and the use of technology."
