What is Community Policing?
Effective community policing has a positive impact on reducing neighborhood crime, helping to reduce fear of crime, and enhancing the quality of life in the community.
It accomplishes these things by combining the efforts and resources of the Police, local government, and community members. The partnership between these groups enhances public safety, awareness, and quality of life.
