Annotation: This article describes the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ's) plans to evaluate jurisdictions involved in the Bureau of Justice Assistance's Innovative Neighborhood-Oriented Policing (INOP) program.
Abstract: The main objectives of the INOP program are to foster community policing initiatives and to implement drug-demand reduction efforts at the neighborhood level. Although community policing and drug-demand reduction have been central aspects of emerging police agendas in many jurisdictions, linking these features under the INOP program is unique. The eight jurisdictions that have received INOP funds have developed a variety of initiatives. Among the few components that these programs have in common are a police enforcement component, a focus on neighborhoods, and an emphasis on drug-demand reduction. In addition, all eight INOP programs have either implemented or attempted to implement a broad array of partnerships with various State and local agencies and community organizations. This article outlines the objectives of NIJ's evaluation of the eight INOP programs. The results of the implementation and impact analyses will enable NIJ's research staff to identify those aspects of the various projects that are most and least effectively implemented and that appear closely related to their outcomes. This information could, in turn, be used by project managers to adjust program operations or focus on those that are more promising.
