700- to 1,050-word paper answering the following questions. Elaborate on your
answers and explain your reasoning.
new low-income housing development in your community consists of 58 apartments
and has become a popular hangout for selling drugs, drinking liquor, and intimidating
residents until early morning hours. Gunshots are an occasional occurrence,
with 5–10 calls for service in every 24-hour period. Criminals hide guns in the
thick overgrowth around the complex, and when approached, they flee through a
large open field behind the complex. An adjacent convenience store has become a
problem as well, particularly as a magnet for drug dealers. A nearby drug house
also contributes to the problem, and a T-shaped alley behind the store provides
easy ingress and egress for buyers, both on foot and in vehicles. The lighting
is poor (with people frequently shooting out street lights), and pay telephones
in the store’s front are used constantly by traffickers. Street people in the
area also engage in theft-, drug-, prostitution-, and vandalism-related
activities. Additionally, these people sleep on private property, defecate and
urinate on public streets, and engage in public drunkenness, graffiti, and
littering. You are assigned to launch a problem-oriented policing (POP)/ SARA
initiative at the location to effect long-term results.What kinds of information would you collect to
address problems such as drugs, prostitution, and vandalism?
What kinds of responses might be considered?
What types of assessment would you perform?
