Police

Community policing is a philosophy. This philosophy states that neither the police nor the citizens can solve the problems of every neighborhood alone. Community policing means that the police and the residents (where a problem exists) must work together and use all of the resources available to them to solve the problem. The problem can be as small as a dark alley where residents want to get a street light installed, or as big as drug dealers selling their "products" on street corners. Regardless of the problems, working together we can make a difference, and we have made a difference!
