Community Policing is Leadership and Collaboration

A collaboration between local law enforcement and the community is the ingredient of successful community policing.  Essential to this collaboration is the perception and confidence of the community in the integrity and dedication of police who are in their locality.
Community members who have positive perceptions about their police and trust them are more likely to have a partnership with them that expresses itself through the dynamism of crime prevention and community policing initiatives.
The COPS Office of the Department of Justice has taken a prominent role in promoting police leadership, a characteristic that is only genuine and viable when integrity is its foundation.
The key to ensuring police integrity is the hiring of service oriented law enforcement individuals rather then political appointees or those with a false notion of a police career.
