Neighborhood Team Policing: Prescriptive Package.
Bloch, Peter B.; Specht, David
The manual for neighborhood team policing, a method of decentralizing police departments, presents guidelines for putting a team policing system into effect. Noticeable results of this type of this type organization have been an increased effectiveness in crime control, improved police-community relations, and improved police morale. Chapter 1 consists of a summary of current knowledge about neighborhood team policing and a description of what the authors believe would be an ideal neighborhood team policing system. Chapter 2 describes the neighborhood team policing programs of police departments in several cities. Subsequent chapters suggest methods and procedures for: planning and implementing neighborhood team policing; administering an ongoing program; training and education; lines of authority and methods of supervision of neighborhood teams; running a neighborhood team (suggestions for use by team commanders); constructing a project budget. Appendixes include: suggested operational guidelines, a format for team commander reports, a sample action grant application, a case study of a New York City team, a method for organizing a referral guide, and a description of the St. Petersburg, Florida training program.
