Daniel wrote: The Transition to Community Policing
Our discussion was Identify and explain three differences between traditional and community policing philosophies. What historical perspectives have influenced the transition from traditional policing to community policing within many departments across the country? What impact did this transition have with regard to law enforcement administration and management?
Individuals response – Community policing allows the police to work more directly with the public. The police work with the community in order to monitor and reduce the amount of crime rates. The community working with the police allows them to now which police officers patrol their area and the police to know which areas have more of a crime rate, which allows them to monitor them more often.
Traditional policing occurs in some areas, where the police are sent to an area of crime after it’s been reported. Traditional policing don’t allow any input in decisions or help from citizens. Many states have chosen to use community policing since it is more effective in efforts to reduce crime rates. Community policing allows police to wor with citizens which allows for many communities to form watch groups within their community and report any unusual behavior or people to the police.
With the advancement of technology this allows more people to communicate better, which allows for community policing to work better than traditional policing. Community policing often has communities to work together and help patrol their communities, as well as know which officers patrol their area.
