Community policing

Conventional wisdom holds that terrorism preparedness is best when information is obtained at the local level and shared at the regional level and beyond. Three analysts from the U.S. Department of Justice contend that this model meshes well with community policing, in which law enforcement prevents crime by partnering with members of the community and sharing information with various local role players as well as with regional and state police. Thus, they say, community policing has the potential to incorporate a formidable antiterrorism component. "Connecting the Dots for a Proactive Approach," by Matthew C. Scheider, Robert E. Chapman, and Michael F. Seelman, is at SM Online.
