Annotation: This report presents the findings of the Australian Criminal Justice Commission's evaluation of the Inala Community and Police Network, a community policing project, at the end of its 3-year pilot.
Abstract: The Inala Community and Police Network (the Network) is a community policing project established to improve Aboriginal and police relations in Inala, although the focus quickly expanded to general police/community relations. The main focus of the Network is on providing activities and services to the local community, particularly youth. In addition, a National Drug Strategy project is located with the Network. The Network's activities include: (1) providing advice and information in a variety of areas, e.g., referrals to welfare services, crime prevention, policing matters; (2) organizing youth diversionary programs; (3) liaising with local community agencies to reduce overlap in service provision and to ensure the exchange of information; and (4) patrolling the shopping center where the Network is located and responding to a limited range of crime committed within the shopping center. The report includes: (1) Evaluation Design; (2) Overview of Activities; (3) The Network and Community Relations; (4) The Network, Community Agency Liaison and Local Police Relations; and (5) Conclusions.
