Community policing, Chicago style by Wesley G Skogan( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Police departments across the country are busily "reinventing" themselves, adopting a new style known as "community policing". This approach to policing involves organizational decentralization, new channels of communication with the public, a commitment to responding to what the community thinks their priorities ought to be, and the adoption of a broad problem-solving approach to neighborhood issues. Police departments that succeed in adopting this new stance have an entirely different relationship to the public that they serve. Chicago made the transition, embarking on what is now the nation's largest and most impressive community policing program. This book, the first to examine such a project, looks in depth at all aspects of the program--why it was adopted, how it was adopted, and how well it has worked. --Publisher description

Community policing in Madison : quality from the inside out : an evaluation of implementation and impact by Mary Ann Wycoff( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Madison, Wisconsin, Police Department undertook an effort to create a new organizational design to support community-oriented and problem-oriented policing. One-sixth of the department serving approximately one-sixth of the population was developed as an Experimental Police District (EPD). Community policing in Madison strived to implement quality leadership, a healthy workplace, improved service delivery, and community benefits. This evaluation had three objectives: document the process of developing the EPD, measure the internal effects of change, and measure the effects of change on the community. In addition to quality leadership, the internal effects focused on in the evaluation included employee input, working conditions, job-related attitudes, and officers' reactions to change. External effects included perceived police presence, frequency and quality of police-citizen contacts, problem-solving, perceptions of neighborhood conditions, levels of worry and fear, and actual victimization. The report found that the successful implementation of a participatory management approach improved employees' attitudes toward the department, decentralized operations, and reduced citizens' fears of crime and increased their belief that police were working for the benefit of the community
