Community policing is the most modern model of law enforcement in the United States. The philosophy of community policing is dependent on the establishment of community-police relationships and problem-solving strategies implemented by the police that require pro-active co-operation of the other members of the community.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
