Publishers Description: This book traces the history and development of problem-oriented policing, followed by a discussion of how police agencies can develop their capacity for addressing community problems. Problem-oriented policing moves beyond police reaction to individual incidents. It recognizes that incidents are symptoms of community problems. By identifying the factors that contribute to various crime patterns in particular localities and circumstances, problem-oriented policing develops strategies designed to coordinate a broad community response to crime by modifying the factor that contribute to it. In describing the elements of problem-oriented policing, the book focuses on the grouping of incidents as problems identifies substantive problems and systematic inquiry, disaggregates and accurately labels problems, analyzes multiple interests in problems, reviews the current response, tailors a response to the problem, and evaluates the response. A major section of the book identifies and critically examines a wide range of alternatives that police might consider in fashioning tailored responses to problems. The book concludes with a description of the process of structural and management change required to implement the strategy of problem-oriented policing.
