Community Policing



Community policing is a department-wide philosophy of full-service, personalized and decentralized policing, where citizens work in proactive and equal partnerships with the police to solve problems of crime, fear of crime, disorder, decay and quality of life. Law enforcement’s obligation is not only to prevent and reduce crime, but to do so fairly while protecting the rights of citizens.  UMCPI offers introductory and advanced community policing courses that can be adapted to the needs of your department.
