Research has postulated over the last century to encompass not only crime-fighting methodologies, but also an increase in service to the community. The traditional model of policing, based on randomly responding to individual calls for service is REACTIVE and INEFFECTIVE! A case study of several agencies has provided descriptions of how their practices are aligned with ideas of effective policing. Precinct 2 will utilize these problem-solving tools and methods as an interictal part of daily operations:
SARA: 4 step problem-solving method. Emphasizes the analysis of problems and develop appropriate solutions.
A paradigm that utilizes the scientific methods that are most effective in reducing crime.
A business model for policing. Focused policing approaches, such as “Hot Spots” and “Directed Patrol” aided by crime analysis.
Crime Prevention Programs and Offender Re-Integration Project.
