External and internal environments of community policing

  • Robert R. Friedmann

Abstract

There is a growing realization that police are, perhaps, more effective in reducing fear of crime than having an unequivocal effect on actual crime figures, and a greater understanding that perceptions of police — and, in turn, perception of citizens — are a crucial component in the coproduction of public safety. There is also the recognition among public safety officials, individual citizens and civic organizations that crime fighting strategies and tactics have, paradoxically, limitations as well as potential. Yet it is still possible — or even necessary — to improve society’s capability to fight crime.
