My final topic for my annotated bibliography is the effectiveness of community oriented policing and problem oriented policing. These two policing methods are somewhat related, so I thought it would be acceptable to combine then into one project. Originally I was just going to focus on community oriented policing, but as I was researching, I found a lot more articles related to problem oriented policing than I did for community oriented policing.
I chose this topic because Iím a Criminal Justice major, and Iím particularly interested in the police institution (as opposed to courts and corrections.) I like learning about ways to reduce crime rates and improve community relations. Community oriented policing is the new trend of improving community relations. If the public were to cooperate with the police in all of their investigations, crime would hardly be a problem at all. The problem is overcoming the barrier between the citizenry and the police. Thatís what I hope to learn about in this project.
I also hope to examine the different types of problem oriented policing. This model of policing applies specifically to Greenville. With the hiring of the new police chief, The Daily Reflector conducted and interview with him. As part of his plan to reduce crime he spoke a lot about the implementation of problem oriented policing within the city. This model of policing focuses traditionally on crime hot spots and how to deal with them. COP and POP are the newest trends in law enforcement, and most modern departments are adopting both or parts of both of the methods.
Iíve been able to find a lot of scholarly articles on my sources. Since both methods are relatively new (and sometimes expensive) thereís been a lot of research on them. I will also use my textbook from a previous course, and I may even consider conducting a personal interview with an officer. I donít believe Iíll have a problem meeting the 15 source requirement.
My biggest concern with this project is finding the time to do it. I just got a job, and the job requires a lot of training. I hope that Iíll have plenty of time to get the paper done to the best of my ability. At least the library is open late.
