Policing Strategies

Problem-oriented 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.  Problem-oriented policing is one analytic method used by police to develop strategies that prevent and reduce crime.
