Strategies and Outcomes
What is POP?
Problem-oriented Policing or POP is an approach to policing in which similar types of incidents, whether crime or acts of disorder, are subject to microscopic examination, with the findings ideally leading to the discovery of new and more effective strategies for bringing about improved results in the future. POP emphasizes preventive actions that are not dependent on the use of the criminal justice system, and that engage other public agencies, the community, and the private sector to help to bring about a positive outcome to a particular situation.
What's the Connection Between Crime-mapping Technology and the POP Approach?
Mapping provides a means of examining potential conditions that enable specific crime problems and facilitates the interpretation and analysis of those problems by those with little statistical training. This, in turn, helps law enforcement proactively prevent crime problems rather than just react to the harmful consequences of problems after they occur.
