  Annotation: This monograph provides a conceptual framework designed for practitioners interested in implementing or expanding local community policing initiatives.
  Abstract: The current shift toward community policing reflects the culmination of changes within the police culture and the profession's reexamination of its policies and procedures. Community policing consists of two complementary core components, namely, community partnership and problemsolving, which are examined in depth here. The key components needed to implement a community policing strategy include obtaining city and community resources, mobilizing outside support, timing, and managing internal change through deployment of personnel, supervision, human resource development, performance evaluation, workload control, and facilities. The three criteria for assessing the progress of community policing are effectiveness, equity, and efficiency. 2 appendixes
