This text is about community policing -- a revolutionary movement, a philosophy and an organizational strategy that expands the traditional police mandate. It broadens the focus of fighting crime to include solving community problems, urging police to form a partnership with the people in the community so average citizens can contribute to the police process in exchange for their support and participation. A new chapter on the police and the public has been added to this edition, and all chapters have been updated. Profiles feature community policing programs in various cities, and problem-solving case studies cover topics such as drugs, gangs, homelessness, mental illness and robbery.
