Summary
The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), part of The United States Department of Justice (DOJ), was created by Title I of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. "The COPS Office was established in 1994 to assist state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies in enhancing their effectiveness in building their capacity to advance public safety through the implementation of community policing strategies, " states the DOJ. Community policing is a philosophy in which police departments and communities work in partnership to reduce crime and address social problems. The establishment of COPS was a key development in the community policing movement in the United States. As a law enforcement philosophy, its wide range of practices and strategies are intended to deepen the relationship that a police department forms with the neighborhood it serves and further engage members of the neighborhood in the mission to fight crime. Also, while distinct from community policing, neighborhood watch programs and self-defense policies are germane to the role of citizenship in crime prevention. This volume presents the debate over community policing, including chapters which ask the following questions: How Should Community Policing Be Implemented?, Are Community Policing and Neighborhood Watch Programs Effective?, How Can Community Policing Be Improved?, and Do Stand Your Ground Laws Empower Citizens? The contrasting perspectives and analyses collected in this volume represent the challenges of maintaining law and order at the neighborhood level
