A Review of Community Policing

A Review of Community Policing

This paper attempts to examine progress made in community policing since its introduction in 1994. The adoption of community policing has to be understood against the background of the massive shortcomings of the 'old' policing system; therefore, policing before 1994 is briefly analysed in order to sketch why the new approach was adopted. Next, given that community policing is an attempt to overcome the shortcomings of the past, this paper will try to establish its effect to date.
