Abstract: The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) was created in September 1994. It has funded the addition of more than 100,000 community policing officers, has advanced community policing nationwide, and has provided more than 3,000 policing agencies with technology to support community policing. Through its COPS in Schools program, COPS has funded the addition of more than 2,600 officers in the Nation's schools. It has also established a national network of training programs to teach citizens and police to work collaboratively in identifying, reporting, and preventing crime. The booklet reviews COPS grant making procedures and hiring grants; several regional community policing institutes, additional agreements, and operational and research partnerships; and funding by agency type and by population. The chief of a policing agency that has adopted community policing claims that the program rewards and encourages innovation, and changes conversation about policing from a crackdown and war metaphor to a collaboration, partnership, and problem solving metaphor.
