Community and Problem Solving Policing 2 The relationship between police and the community is extremely important. To have a trusting relationship between the two gives our communities a sense of security. The police deal with problems that most of us are not aware of on a daily basis. Their job is to serve and protect our communities. In doing that there are problems and struggles police face and by having the communities support help make our streets safe. Reducing crime and improving quality of life is the goal. In order to make that happen there must be problem-solving tactics and strategies to improve. Some believe that community policing and problem-solving policing may be the key strategies to use in policing our nation. What Is Community Policing? Community policing is a philosophy that promotes organizational strategies, which support the systematic use of partnerships and problem-solving techniques, to proactively address the immediate conditions that give rise to public safety issues such as crime, social disorder, and fear of crime. The philosophy is predicated on the belief that achieving these goals requires that police departments develop a new relationship with the law-abiding people in the community, allowing them a greater voice in setting local police priorities and involving them in efforts to improve the overall quality of life in their neighborhoods.(Wadsworth, 2005) Community Policing is comprised of three key components: Community Partnerships -Collaborative partnerships between the law enforcement agency and the individuals and organizations they served to develop solutions to problems and increase trust in police. Examples are: other government agencies, community members, groups, private business and the media.
