Community meetings help Citizens understand how relations between the community and law enforcement can be strengthened through community policing strategies.
Programs like Community Policing, Neighborhood Watch, build a bridge that enables residents and law enforcement to communicate, collaborate, and work together to build safer, more caring communities.
“Community policing is a philosophy that promotes and supports organizational strategies to address the causes of crime, to reduce the fear of crime and social disorder through problem-solving tactics and community-police partnerships.”
