Neighborhood-oriented policing in rural communities : a program planning guide by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is targeted at citizens and law enforcement officials in rural and small town settings who are working to redirect police resources to achieve greater effectiveness in handling public safety problems including crime and fear of crime, drug abuse, violence, and disorder. Although different variations of neighborhood-oriented policing have emerged, most incorporate the same two important ingredients, namely, community engagement and problemsolving. In this monograph, following the introduction, two chapters have an external focus, explaining from the police agency's perspective, how to initiate greater community participation and how to identify and analyze community needs. The two following chapters describe, from a more internal focus, how to take stock and asses police organizational needs and how to implement the decisionmaking process. The final two chapters integrate the external and internal viewpoints and focus on planning, implementation, and evaluation. The monograph also contains information including suggested reading, national resource agencies, problemsolving guides, a sample policy agency mission statement, and suggestions for planning and management

A Police guide to surveying citizens and their environment( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph offers an introduction and practical guidelines regarding the development and implementation of two types of surveys that police find increasingly useful: (1) surveys of citizens and (2) surveys of the physical environment. Those conducting a survey must first determine the sample from which they want to obtain data. Random selection is the most popular manner of selecting a representative sample. Surveys can usually be conducted in one of three ways: (1) mailing a questionnaire, (2) questioning by telephone, and (3) personal interviews. Designing the questions requires precision in wording, clarity of thought, and care not to take too much time. Simple data analysis can determine the central tendency, the range of answers, and how representative the sample was. Opinion surveys may themselves help deter crime and reduce fear of crime, while environmental surveys help police quantify the physical characteristics of neighborhoods and link them with specific neighborhood problems. These surveys help identify problems, determine what changes will help solve them, and measure the effectiveness of the efforts

Law enforcement executives, academics, attorneys, and federal government representatives addressed the different effective strategies that have been developed to combat the problems of the changing nature of crime, the decentralization of police departments, and the rise in gang violence that have all had an impact on the effectiveness of homicide investigations. These strategies include various management and personnel decisions, videotaping suspect interviews, considering the availability of eyewitness identification option, DNA analysis, and using cold case units and crime analysis to increase clearance rates. Case studies highlighted both the strengths and weaknesses associated with various investigation techniques
