The Move to Community Policing
Making Change Happen

Edited by:

January 2002 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Community policing continues to be of great interest to policy makers, scholars and, of course, local police agencies. Successfully achieving the transformation from a traditional policing model to community policing can be difficult. This book aims to illuminate the path to make that change as easy as possible. Morash and Ford have produced a contributed anthology with original articles from a variety of well-known researchers, police trainers and leaders.

They focus on:

  • Recent research for developing data systems to shape police reform
  • Changing the police culture to implement community policing
  • Creating partnership strategies within police organizations and between police and community groups for successful community policing
  • Anticipating future challenges
