In this article, the writer notes that policing today is a very complex and dangerous service provided to an often inconsiderate and ungrateful community. The writer focuses on the community of Macom and its police force. The problems as they are currently experienced are explored and analyzed in order to make recommendations and suggest improvements. The writer maintains that Macom's problem is two-fold: the drop in morale in the police force as a result of the rising crime rates, and the increasing fearfulness of the community for the same reason. The writer concludes that the Macom police department should concentrate on programs to nurture its youth via wholesome activities and educational programs, while at the same time building its community relations by cultivating positive relationships with all community leaders.
