What is Community Policing?

Community Policing is not a program, a unit, or a specialized division within a police department. Implementation of the Community Policing philosophy encourages law enforcement and community residents to work together to address the problems of crime, fear of crime, and factors that detract from the overall quality of life in their communities. Community Policing challenges police departments to develop a new vision for the future of their department and to translate this vision into action.
