Community Policing: A Contemporary Perspective

Rate this book
This text is about community policing -- a revolutionary movement, 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. A new chapter on the police and the public has been added to this edition, and all chapters have been updated. Profiles feature community policing programs in various cities, and problem-solving case studies cover topics such as drugs, gangs, homelessness, mental illness and robbery.

Good ideas, but poor grammar and writing style in some places and also referred to African Americans as "Africanas"....which I have never heard of. So, that was weird.

A good look at the history and reasoning behind community policing, as well as some of the barriers to good government-citizen relations.
