The Move to Community Policing: Making Change Happen

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
