Description:

The paper outlines the community oriented policing model, the zero tolerance policing model and the problem oriented policing model that combines elements of both models. The paper believes that both extremes of attitudes to policing appear appropriate in certain situations, but in most cases, a hybrid comprising elements of both is more likely to allow policing functions to achieve their fullest potential benefit to the community. The paper concludes that the exact mix of policing approaches is determined by what is most beneficial and realistic for the community in which police services are at issue.

From the Paper:

"Policing in the United States has evolved tremendously since its introduction 160 years ago in New York City (Conlon 2004). During that time police administrators and public officials have experimented with several very different policing philosophies, ranging from the zero-tolerance concept on one end of the spectrum, to community-oriented policing on the other. Both approaches to policing appear appropriate in certain situations, but in most cases, a hybrid comprising elements of both is more likely to allow policing functions to achieve their fullest potential benefit to the community."
