Question description

Community Policing Case Studies

Compare two of the “Cop in Action” case studies from Chapters Three, Four, or Five of the textbook. Describe the specific details that identify the course of action as a representation of one of the three policing models described. What characteristics specific to that particular policing model lead to successful implementation within the case study?   The first cop in action is the high profile program successfully drives prostitutes out of town. In this case it is about fighting the war on prostitution. It focuses on St. Petersburg which is finding new ways to eliminate prostitution by sending out Dear John letters and “mapping” an area where they deny the prostitutes access to where they previously worked.

This first cop in action resembles the strategic oriented policing. “There are no limitations to the methods that can be employed under strategic policing.”(Oliver, 2008). The strategic oriented police are targeting the prostitution problem which many feel is a waste of time and resources. With targeting prostitution by sending out Dear John letters letting offenders and family members know the consequences if they get caught.

The second cop in action is the Kansas City gun experiment. In this experiment Kansas City focused on seizing illegally carried fire arms. In the 29 week program they found out that the police officers that were in charge of the selected neighborhoods didn’t spend as much time patrolling the streets as one thought. On average the officers only spent 3.27 car-hours out of the 12 car-hours patrolling the streets the other hours were spent working on reports.

This cop action resembles the neighborhood oriented policing. This action focuses on a selected neighborhood where the officers patrol and focus and look for certain things in this case the officers are focusing on finding illegally carried firearms.
