Summary
Presented in this book are current practices within policing and juvenile justice (focusing on gangs), which utilize the community-policing model. By looking at specific strategies and their efficacy, the authors attempt to combat a major perceived problem with community policing; that the methodology of community policing can be subjective and nebulous, using ill-defined and misinterpreted practices. This book shows what is working for agencies across the country and how these "best practices" can be employed. Includes a focus on Boston as a model for gang policing strategies, other chapters are set in different regions of the United States
