This paper examines two studies ordered by the U.S. government - one rural and one urban - which discuss the issue of community policing with the American law enforcement organizations.

From the Paper:

"The first government study taken up by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) entitled "Community Policing: Beyond the Big Cities" reflects the growing examples of community policing that are becoming more affective in smaller communities, rather than in the larger scope of metropolitan studies that do not represent successful turnout rates for community policing efforts. The study appeared far more successful that urban studies have committed due to the less structured street allocation to crime proportionately in more rural centers. The study methodology took into account the locale of the community policing efforts, and made sure to realize the initial success rates of both policing communities, as well as how local residents responded to initiatives set forth by the law enforcement policing agenda."
