Abstract

Looks at a project in Spokane, Washington in which two community police officers (CPOs) were assigned to two economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. Finds that there is a continuing need for improving communication between police and the neighborhood residents and between residents themselves. Notes the importance of improving the image of law enforcement and encouraging residents to take an active role in solving crime‐related problems in their neighborhood. Says that CPOs enjoy their work and appear quite successful at it; that those who come into contact with CPOs appreciate them. Comments that the flexibility to interact with residents on a personal level and view problems from a local perspective seems to help in problem solving.

Abstract

“Community policing” has become the watchword for organizational change among law enforcement agencies across the USA over the past several years. In particular, concerted efforts to internalize this new policing philosophy have intensified with the passage of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act in 1994, and since the strong endorsement of the community policing concept by the Clinton administration. Our analysis of data collected from a representative sample of 281 American police agencies in 1993 and again in 1996 permit a compelling examination of the community policing movement in this country over time. Our findings suggest that there has been a significant increase in community policing activities in recent years. Further, the level of interest in community policing training has intensified and impediments to the adoption of the community policing philosophy have become more easily identifiable. In addition, the results reported here also suggest that this change process has been quite dynamic, but the ultimate and widespread institutionalization of community policing still remains somewhat uncertain.

Abstract

Reviews the rise of community‐oriented policing (CP) in the USA. Analyses data from a survey of police chiefs across the USA which investigated the extent of organizational change and CP implementation. Explores the extent of current CP training and identifies some facilitators and impediments to its implementation, e.g., education; training; middle‐management resistance; maintenance of adequate response time to calls for service while pursuing CP goals. Calls for further study on strategies for balancing the outcomes of a traditional approach against the expected benefits of CP; identification of agencies which have achieved this balance; comparison of employees’ value orientation over time. Notes that successful CP requires a change in officers’ values.
