Community Policing book cover

Community Policing

A Contemporary Perspective

This text explores community policing - a philosophy and an organizational strategy that expands the traditional police mandate. It broadens the focus of fighting crime to include solving community problems, urging police to form a partnership with the people in the community so average citizens can contribute to the police process in exchange for their support and participation.

Now includes a chapter on Community Crime Prevention. Profiles feature community policing programs in various cities, and problem-solving case studies cover special topics. Includes: The Ten Principles of Community Policing.
