Title: Implementing Community Policing It


1
Implementing Community PolicingIts Philosophy
not a Program!
  • Michael G. Wilkie, Chief
  • Acworth Police Department

2
Community Policing
  • The most well publicized innovation in policing
    in the past ten to fifteen years
  • Based on interaction between Police and Citizens
    to co-produce crime control

3
Vision Statement
  • Group Activity Prepare a Sample Vision Statement
    for a Police Department
  • Write down the first things that come to your
    mind of what a police department should be.
    Include some element of the concept of community
    policing
  • Rank them in order of importance to you.
  • In your group compare your ideas.
  • Highlight the re-occurring themes.
  • As a group write your vision statement.
  • Each group will report back to the whole group.
  • Now, we will write one vision statement.
  • Compare our vision statement to the Acworth
    Police Department.

4
Compare and Contrast
  • Our statement
  • APD Statement
  • COMPARE Citizens view vs. a Cops view

5
Goals and Objectives
  • Co-production of Order
  • Implementing social order through mutual
    cooperation of public servant and citizens
  • The Small town provides an appropriate
    settingLarge municipalities begin in precincts
    and carry the torch throughout the entire city.

6
Correct Development of Citizen Perceptions
  • Suggest ways of developing venues of developing
    interaction
  • Citizen Police Academies, Neighborhood
    associations, Business Associations, Ministerial
    Meetings, Hotel Owners/Managers Meetings
  • Understand that different neighborhoods present
    different needs
  • Utilize other community forums

7
Development of the COP Mission
  • Fundamental redefinition of policing
  • Whole new avenues of social control
  • Community Policing is Philosophy not a Program.
  • Community Policing is not an expansion or
    extension of the department it IS the department.

8
Heart of COP
  • Social Order is most effectively a Co-production
    of the police and the community (Weisheit,
    1994).
  • Police become approachable.
  • Citizens actually define the role police play.

9
Law Enforcement View of COP
  • Poor early training has produced negative
    attitudes.
  • Must be a department commitment (a department
    philosophy).
  • Requires mindset change (The cheese has moved!)
  • May be approached in incremental change

10
Training Issues
  • Most police training is limited to the
    mechanics of policing
  • May require review of current curriculum, hiring
    practices, and standards of measurement in the
    department

11
Can It Work?
  • Small towns are the perfect atmosphere however,
    large cities can effectively create the
    atmosphere.
  • People already tend to interact, know one
    another we need to capitalize on the
    interaction.
  • More community interaction leads to more informal
    means of social control

12
Issues of Liability
  • Patterns of Liability might change
  • The more you allow, the more you are liable
    for.
  • Liability arises when officers are asked to do
    something for which they have had no training,
    experience, understanding, or commitment.

13
Benefits Outweigh the Liabilities
  • Creates a climate of collaboration and
    cooperation.
  • Deters crime in the long-run.
  • Builds relationships within and without the
    community.
  • Creates accountability and creditability with the
    community.

14
Integral part of Cultivating Excellence!
  • Safekeeping of human life property
  • Enforcing the law with equal administration
  • Ensuring excellence in all services
  • Detecting deterring crime
  • Selfless involvement in consistent cooperation in
    our community
