Policing Case Studies
Compare two of the “Cop in Action” case studies from Chapters
Three, Four, or Five of the textbook. Oliver, W. (2008). Community-oriented policing: A systematic approach to policing (4th ed.). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson Education, Inc. 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
There is a difference between
community-oriented policing and police-community relations. Community-oriented
policing is when the community takes it upon themselves to enforce law in the
area that they are living. They ensure that they guard the community against
any cases about that interfere with the security of the society. On the other
hand, police-community relations refer to the affiliation that the police has
with the community (Oliver, 2008). The police and community need to ensure that
they have an association that has open channels of communication where they can
both correspond with one another.
Police-community relations and
community-oriented policing interact with each other as both have the same
objectives. Both initiatives are meant to ensure that security is upheld in the
community. Therefore, both initiatives depend on one another to ensure that
these objectives are achieved. The philosophical or theoretical changes happen
over time as more people realized the importance of ensuring that security is
attained in all communities (Brown, 2002). The police and the community
realized the importance and value that they get from working together to ensure
that security is upheld at all times. Therefore, police-community relations and
community-oriented policing are co-related and both work towards ensuring that
security is upheld at all times.
