Annotation: This two-volume report evaluates eight innovative neighborhood-oriented policing (INOP) programs in eight U.S. cities and lessons learned in the course of program implementation.
Abstract: In 1990, the Bureau of Justice Assistance awarded funds to eight jurisdictions to participate in a demonstration program known as the INOP program. This program was designed to support the development of community policing strategies and tactics at the neighborhood level, with the goal of reducing the demand for drugs through community involvement and interagency cooperation. The eight jurisdictions developed their own approach, and each program varied widely in terms of the operating context, the nature and scope of the neighborhood focus, the approach to drug demand reduction, the nature of interagency planning teams, community outreach, and various other services provided. The eight sites in Arizona, Virginia, New York, California, Oregon, Maryland, Texas, and Kentucky are evaluated, based on data collected between June 1991 and August 1992. Evaluation methods are described, police understanding of and support for community policing and INOP are discussed, and interagency and community involvement in INOP programs is examined. Effects of INOP programs on drug use, crime, fear, quality of life, and police- community relations are assessed. References and footnotes
