Annotation: This report contains projections that came out of a futures study on community policing in large California police departments toward the year 2003.
Abstract: Data suggested that there will be a high demand for community policing, prompted in no small way by the infamous Rodney King incident and the ensuing riots of 1992. However, police departments will have to deal with constrained budgets, chronic understaffing, lack of resources and up-to- date technology, and increasing workloads. A panel of selected academic and high-level law enforcement officials forecasted the following events: another major civil disturbance; election of a tough law enforcement mayor in Los Angeles; passage of a bond measure to hire more police officers; cutbacks in the State Budget Crisis Forces; creation of a police/Immigration and Naturalization Service team against immigrant gangs; and the establishment of a civilian review board. They developed a policing model that synthesizes traditional problem-oriented and modern community-based strategies. It consists of five key components--police advisory councils, senior lead officers, internal/external support resources, community policing center, and mobile substation unit--the roles of which are explained in detail.
