CJA219 :  Introduction to Community Policing

There has long been an interest in the relationship between the police and the community that they serve. This course is designed to study the evolution of that relationship in the United States. Community policing emphasizes the need for the police and the community to work together to solve neighborhood problems before they become more serious situations requiring legal intervention. During the class we will explore such topics as the history of police-community interactions, the various types of community policing models currently in use and the potential future for this type of law enforcement.
Prerequisite: RD090, WR090 and MTH020, each with a grade of "C" or better; or placement above stated course levels.
