This paper discusses the issues regarding traditional versus community policing.

Problem oriented policing is examined, as well as COPPS and the New York City Police Department's COMSTAT model (computer comparison statistics).

From the Paper:

"Community policing has been defined as a "philosophy, management style and organizational strategy" with the goal of building community partnerships and not simply eliminating crime but also addressing the causes of crime in the community. It may be applied to any policing environment where neighborhood residents, schools, churches, businesses, community organizations or any other members of the community are working in conjunction with police departments to not only identify potential problems in the community but also solve them (Goldstein, Bayley & Couper, n.d). "
