The Challenge of Community Policing
Testing the Promises

Edited by:


May 1994 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Providing a clear picture of trends amongst progressive police authorities, researchers from North America and the United Kingdom address the fundamental question - whether community policing is set to fulfil its many promises.

Using both qualitative and quantitative methods, the authors present a thorough evaluation of the social and organizational processes involved in planning and implementing community policing as well as the effects of such programmes and policies on the police and the community itself.
