Community Policing in Small Cities and Rural Areas

Cover of Community Policing Beyond the Big Cities.

Community Policing Beyond the Big Cities, a report from the National Institute of Justice, discusses a study of eight law enforcement agencies in small- to medium-size cities and rural areas in California, Idaho, and South Dakota. Researchers identified five progressive stages of community policing and found a wide array of innovative problem-solving initiatives undertaken by officers and sheriffs. Community policing was most successful when officers worked closely with residents and other community partners to design and implement creative approaches to solve specific local problems.
