|Course title:||Introduction To Problem Oriented Policing|
policing (POP), coined
by University of Wisconsin-Madison professor Herman Goldstein, is a
policing strategy that involves the identification and analysis of
specific crime and disorder problems, in order to develop effective
response strategies in conjunction with ongoing assessment. This
strategy places emphasis on research and analysis as well as crime
prevention and the engagement of public and private organizations in
the reduction of community problems.
Problem-oriented policing has virtually replaced the "incident-driven" method of law enforcement in many agencies. The POP strategy is a commitment to empowering each individual officer with the authority to identify and proactively work on problems within his or her beat. This training introduce the POP concepts and will help officers become leaders in their agency and agents of positive change in the community.
