Community Policing

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the meaning of community policing. Community policing is not a single concept. It may mean a contrast to rapid response and enforcement-oriented policing, so that constables are closer to the community and can represent its norms; a process by which crime control is shared with the public, as in neighbourhood watch; or a means of developing communication with the public and interest groups.

Keywords: community policing; interest groups; constables; public
