Page 2 LECTURE 6 CHAPTER 6 – THE POLICE: ORGANIZATION, ROLE AND FUNCTION Aggressive Patrol - the Kansas City Study greatly influenced the way police experts viewed the effectiveness of patrol and set the stage for community- and problem- oriented policing models which stress social service over crime deterrence (p208) Presence of police may not deter crime. Proactive Policing – An aggressive law enforcement style in which patrol officers take the initiative against crime instead of waiting for the crime to occur. For example, they stop motor vehicles to issue citations and aggressively arrest and detain suspicious persons. (p209). This policy takes criminals off the street before they can commit the crime (focus on drugs and guns). Broken Windows Policing (George Kelling & James Wilson’s model) The role of police as maintainers of community order & safety: Neighborhood disorder (gangs, prostitutes) creates fear and maintains crime by signaling to predators. Neighborhoods give out crime promoting signals; this disrepair breeds crime. Police need to aggressively target low-level quality of life crimes; first address the minor problems that invite more serious ones.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
