I need support with this Law question so I can learn better.
Community policing has been a major trend in U.S. policing since 1980s. In 1999, nearly two-thirds of county and municipal police departments with 100 or more officers had a formally written community-policing plan. Although it is widely adopted, there is still confusion about community policing, what it might be expected to accomplish, and how or why it might be expected to work where other strategies have failed.
In your research project, your task is to analyze what community policing is and what it is not.
This is what you are expected to do in your project:
- Explain community policing strategy/philosophy
- Compare community policing to traditional policing
- Identify and briefly explain the common elements of community policing programs
- Explain a real life community policing program that is considered successful (like Coffee with a Cop)
- Discuss the criticisms of community policing
