Cops Program and the Spread of Community Policing Practices, 1995-2000

By Johnson, Calvin C.

Description
Legal Reference Publication

Excerpt
Introduction: The Clinton administration?s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program is most visibly associated with the goal of placing 100,000 police officers on the streets of the U.S. However, the program had a second goal: encouraging law enforcement agencies to adopt the operating principles of community policing. Early in his tenure as the first appointed director of the COPS Office, Joseph Brann alluded to this goal in Congressional testimony (Brann, 1995). Although community policing was an ambiguous concept at the time and remains so today, Brann?s testimony took a step toward operationalizing it by specifying four principal goals of community policing: building police-community partnerships, problem-solving, crime prevention, and organizational support for these programmatic objectives.
