Overview

This innovative volume examines the experiences of nine diverse police agencies of various sizes across America as they implement, succeed and fail, and implement again--or try to--a community policing approach to public safety. Unlike other books on the subject--that are filled with academic icons or police imagery--this book focuses on real community policing activities of real police departments, documenting what works and what hasn't worked, and, equally important, why it didn't work. Covers community policing programs in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma; Nashville, Tennessee; Columbus, Ohio; Lansing, Michigan; Harris County, Texas; Sacramento, California; Fayetteville, North Carolina; St. Petersburg, Florida; and Camden, New Jersey. Criminal Justice, Policing, Organizational Structure (both sociology and business), and Management.
