Community policing is an approach by which the community and other stakeholders work together with the local police to define community needs and implement crime prevention strategies. This approach has a lot of popularity in many communities and law enforcement circles since its implementation in 1994 (resulting in the adoption of the concept by over 12,000 police departments since that time). Obviously, law enforcement and the communities they serve have spent a lot of time, money and effort on this concept. Has the money, time and effort been well spent?
