Community Policing & Problem Solving 1.0

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Crime, disorder, and associated problems can be more effectively addressed in small geographical areas, such as an officer's patrol area or beat. Studying the characteristics of problems in an area helps officers to apply resources and responses that can reduce and solve those problems. Individuals who commit crimes or civil violations often make choices based on opportunities presented by physical and social characteristics of their immediate area. This course offers law enforcement officers tools to creatively solve problems by collaborating with community groups, who, by manipulating physical and social factors, create harder targets, which make it less likely for people to act offensively. You will also be exposed to problem-solving and solution-oriented policing, which bring together local authorities and people in the community in collaborative efforts to eliminate community problems in both real world and cyber communities.
