With few exceptions, existing studies indicate that community policing has not been successful in sustaining community involvement and has had only limited effects on crime rates. This paper examines the current issues in community policing and how policing-oriented community may help to resolve them. The latter is a community-based organization that aims at reducing citizens’ reliance on the criminal justice system through community crime prevention. The paper explores the assumptions behind this concept, discusses its implementation, and proposes its institutionalization to bring community policing into reality.
