Community Policing

“John Angell (1971) coined the term “democratic policing” to describe community policing. Community policing simply put is a new philosophy of policing in which the police departments and the law abiding citizens work together in creative ways to address the contemporary community problems. Community partnerships, Problem Solving and Organizational transformation are the three primary elements of community policing. People have the opportunity to decide how police services are to be carried out in the community. It follows the principle of participatory process of development. Community Policing is a better alternative to bureaucratic model of policing because the bureaucratic model limits the contact between police and community. It also fails to provide equitable and impartial policing to all sections of the citizens. In this scenario, community policing offers cost effective and participative crime preventive approaches.”
