Policing Strategies

Hot Spot Policing

Law enforcement agencies implement a variety of strategies and methods to combat crime and ensure public safety. Policing strategies extend beyond traditional models of responding to calls for service and often seek to increase crime prevention, intervention, and response effectiveness through such techniques as hot spot policing. Typically, crime does not occur evenly over the landscape; it is clustered in small areas, or hot spots, and account for a disproportionate amount of crime and disorder.
