LAW250 - Crime Prevention and Community Policing

Community oriented policing is a strategy for forging a partnership between the police department and the citizens it serves. The community will participate in identifying problems of local concern and in helping find solutions. The police are the driving force behind establishing public safety and encouraging citizen involvement. The success of the police depends on developing their own skills, and allowing officers the flexibility to analyse, and initiate proactive crime prevention measures.
This course will explore the law that directly supports these measures. It will also examine technology and techniques to reduce crime. Further, it will explore the theories and practices of community policing as it exists in Canada today.
