Unite Your Community to Prevent Crime
What is COP?
Community-oriented Policing (COP), which was introduced more than 20 years ago, is described as a philosophy that combines traditional aspects of law enforcement with prevention measures, problem-solving, community engagement, and community partnerships. Its primary objective is to forge an alliance with the community at large to help identify and address crime issues and solve problems proactively. Developing and nurturing a network of personal contacts inside and outside the local agencies is a key component of the strategy. One well-known and successful partnership that grew out of this approach is the Neighborhood Watch Program.
What Benefits do Crime Maps Have for Law Enforcement and the Community at Large?
Crime mapping software utilizing GIS technology has gained widespread acceptance as a viable tool for agencies employing community-oriented (COP) methodology. In addition to helping law enforcement entities strategically apply their limited resources to make local streets safer, the online mapping tools have empowered other local agencies and the public they serve to participate in a more proactive and meaningful way to fight neighborhood crime.
