Community policing provides an opportunity to embrace a form of justice very different, and potentially more effective in controlling deviance, than our traditional concepts relating to crime control. Limiting community policing’s full potential is a lack of academic and practitioner articulation of the two divergent themes embedded in the concept, defined here as the compliance model and the internalization models of justice. Examples from the tenures of Anthony Bouza, August Vollmer and Lee P. Brown, and a case study of Oakland, California illustrate the lack of articulation. Appropriate responses capable of making internalization synonymous with community policing policy and practice receive discussion.
