Why Community Oriented Policing Has Failed and the Rise of Policing through Practical Partnerships
Plummer, Eric S.
Campus Law Enforcement Journal, v38 n1 p27-28, 30 Jan-Feb 2008
According to the U.S. Department of Justice (www.usdoj.gov), Community Policing is defined as: "The focus on crime and social disorder through the delivery of police services that includes aspects of traditional law enforcement, as well as prevention, problem-solving, community engagement, and partnerships. The community policing model balances reactive responses to calls for service with proactive problem-solving centered on the causes of crime and disorder. Community policing requires police and citizens to join together as partners in the course of both identifying and effectively addressing these issues." This article will address the downfall of Community Oriented Policing as a model of law enforcement, its negative impact on the youth in the society, and the rise of a new, more effective model: Policing through Practical Partnerships.
