Community Partnerships CD

Cover: Partnership CD Defining community policing can be a difficult task because many experts in the policing and criminal justice fields have different understandings of exactly what it is. Community policing, however, can be more easily identified by understanding three core elements: problem solving, organizational change, and community partnerships. The resources on this CD will help explain these various aspects of community policing, which together represent a proactive, preventive approach to controlling crime and increasing public safety.
