What Is Community Policing?

While conducting research for defining community policing, one will find varied definitions unique to the author or a police department's particular program. Once all the fluff is removed, the basic elements providing success for today's law enforcement with their community policing philosophy are nearly the same. Basically, community policing can be defined as proactive, problem solving, and community involvement. Community policing occurs when law enforcement and law-abiding citizens work together to do the following:

  • Arrest offenders
  • Prevent crime
  • Solve ongoing problems
  • Improve the overall quality of life
The community policing philosophy must be instituted department- wide. Management must become more decentralized, empowering employees to solve problems and make decisions to address the root causes of criminal activity and other social issues. The police department must involve the community by building trust through partnerships, improved police-community relations, and networking. Working together we can make a difference.
