July 2017

Guest Editor: James Baker

Every community, large or small, has its own distinct challenges and needs, and every law enforcement agency has to find the best way to protect the community it serves with the (sometimes limited) resources available. However, many crime control strategies, such as crime analysis or place-based policing, can be modified to fit different community needs and different crime trends. Learning from other leaders what has or has not worked, as well as hearing what strategies they are exploring, can spur the development of effective crime control solutions in your community.
