Unit 3 Community Oriented Policing

Community-oriented policing (COP) does involve the need for information technology. Such information technology that COP programs and projects could utilize are databases, computer software for crime analysis, and records management systems. Police officials find the use of these systems to be helpful in compiling data about criminal statistics and analyses that can aid in how patrol officers are organized, research for new programs that involve the police department officials and community members, and crime prevention and criminal investigations.
