Transition to Community Policing
Identify and explain three differences between traditional and
community policing philosophies.
and community policing are both great philosophies they both work well. One
difference between the two is that community police is just that they deal more
with the community where as traditional policing deals with the crimes in the
area. A second major difference is that traditional police won’t respond unless
there is a real crime that is being committed. The community police respond
regardless to try and keep the peace. Another difference is that community
police want to get the community involved to see if they have ideas on how to
better fight crime whereas the traditional police don’t take input from the
community they are more fact based decision makers.
What historical perspectives have
influenced the transition from traditional policing to community policing
within many departments across the country?
would have to say that 9/11 had a big factor on this. I would say that it
helped make the jump because with community police they ae seen as almost
“feelers” for the community they are in the area and are more involved with the
community so they may know of something happening before it happens and that is
a huge help.
police departments across the United States have been implementing the
principles of community-oriented policing for nearly two decades, the threat of
terrorism and the concentrated efforts of Homeland Security have forced the
police to rethink their role.” (Oliver, 2008).
just writing a paper on homeland security I know that 9/11 had a great impact
on how it came to be and was ran.
What impact did this transition have
with regard to law enforcement administration and management?
were several impacts that these transitions had when community policing came to
be there had to be funding for it so there were some issues with that. Like
where was the funding coming from and where exactly was it going to be spent.
