LEA 312 Week Four Discussion Two

Evaluating Policing


Thoroughly explain the importance of the community policing evaluation process, two forms of evaluation used in determining policing effectiveness, and how the evaluations are used by the administration.  How does the community policing evaluation process differ from that used in evaluating traditional policing? In your opinion, does the evaluation process properly identify successful implementation or areas of concern? Why or why not?

Thoroughly explain the importance of the community policing evaluation process, two forms of evaluation used in determining policing effectiveness, and how the evaluations are used by the administration.  How does the community policing evaluation process differ from that used in evaluating traditional policing? In your opinion, does the evaluation process properly identify successful implementation or areas of concern? Why or why not?

  The evaluation process for community policing is a very critical piece of the program.  It is imperative that the progress be measured and that changes or adjustments be made if needed.  It is not a style of policing that can be just status quo and never changing, it must be a living process changing for the better all the time.

  One use of evaluation is the survey which is the easiest way to collect information.  They can be in written form or telephone but you can gain the insight of the community and their perception of the department and the program.  You can also use the survey method within the department as well to gain more in depth feedback on the internal progress as well  (Oliver, 2008).  Surveys are a great tool to use and they are relatively easy and cost efficient to use

  The second method would be reviewing case studies and evaluating them.  Case studies look at data compliled from the implementation of the program and the response of the community over time recording the events that have occurred.  Once the database has been created, the analyst can look for common themes or denominators and can suggest a change or adjustment to be more efficient or positive  (Oliver, 2008).

  Although there would be different items to evaluate, I believe the same evaluation process could be used in traditional policing as well.  I look at the situation this way and I have even used this while serving on the Board of Education.  We are selling a service to the community much like selling a product.  You must check to see if they are satisfied with the product and if not, what do they need to get changed.  We were faced with a delema on whether to build a community auditorium or not.  We did not have the funds so we went to the public with forums and put a tax levy on the ballot and asked if they wanted this project, they could support it with their vote.  In all the meetings everyone was for the project but no one wanted to pay more taxes for it.  It works the same in policing a community, what are their expectations and how can we meet them.
