Annotation: The Sacramento, California, Police Department has become a model for community-oriented policing (COP), and the impact of future economic trends on Sacramento's COP approach is assessed.
Abstract: Traditionally, community investment and economic development have been outside the scope of law enforcement priorities. The uncertainty of future economic conditions in California, however, will continue to be a critical issue for law enforcement. Economic concerns are also associated with community policing programs because such programs focus on goals other than crime prevention alone. To identify what influence COP might have on the future economic development of Sacramento, a futures study, strategic plan, and transition management plan were developed. The focus was on what economic activities might be required to strengthen legitimate community institutions and on what programs should be developed to organize and train citizens and resident groups to resist crime and drugs. It was determined that rapid growth will make it necessary for the Sacramento Police Department and other local government agencies to address economic, environmental, and societal impacts on city infrastructure and that the impact of COP on economic development can be measured by the extent of marketing used to advertise its success. 11 endnotes
