Assignment 1: Problem-Solving with the Community

Engaging the community implies that the community is actively involved with the police department. Simply going to the community for inputs on problems is not engagement. Fully implemented community policing includes the community as part of actual responses and solutions to problems identified in the community.




In this assignment, you will get an opportunity to analyze actual problems solved in a community policing environment. Try to use the Scanning, Analysis, Response and Assessment (SARA) problem-solving model and look for effectiveness of engaging the community in solving a problem.




Visit the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing website (the link is provided in the Webliography) and read about a community problem that was solved with the assistance of the community.




These are actual problems and solutions; therefore, you may see natural variations in problem-solving and, hopefully, a variety of creative methods of solving community problems.




Submission Details:

Describe the problem that was solved and explain how the police agency effectively engaged the community in solving the problem.


Expound your reasons that led you to believe that the project was successful. Support your conclusions with information from your readings.
