Community Policing – W6 Assignment
Community-Oriented Policing and Gangs
Gang activity is perhaps the most destructive force in America. Community-oriented policing attempts to address some of the issues of gang life and how it impacts the quality of life in the community. For this week’s assignment locate a community-oriented policing program or a sub program within one that is attempting to deal with a gang problem. You might start by looking here for ideas: https://www.bja.gov/programdetails.aspx?program_id=74. Find one of the community programs and evaluate its effectiveness. Analyze what has worked and what has not worked. Make suggestions as to what might be an improvement to the program.
Write a 2 page APA style paper. Only the body of the paper will count toward the word requirement (title page and references are in addition to the 2 pages)
In your paper, cite at least 2-3 references using the APA style guide format for in-text citation.
Only one reference may be found on the internet. The other references must be found in the library (this includes EBSCO Host and the Gale Criminal Justice Collection).
