Community Policing
The CPOP in New York



November 1992 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The Community Patrol Officer Program (CPOP), launched in New York in 1984, was designed to solve problems at the community level through the neighbourhood patrol officer. The authors of this volume present the research and findings of the CPOP. The multi-dimensional role the police officers were expected to play is examined and issues such as the effectiveness of the officers in implementing their new role, the obstacles they encountered, the attitudes of the officers and the perceptions of the community are explored. The book also suggests measures for improving and implementing similar programmes.
