Community Policing


Community policing is a proactive rather than reactive approach to police department operation that promotes the systematic use of partnerships with individuals and organizations outside of the police department using more personal and direct interaction with the community to solve problems and address the conditions that give rise to public safety issues such as crime, social disorder and fear.
