Community Policing and Domestic Violence: Five Promising Practices

General Material
Published Date
October, 2003

Community policing is a framework for the structure and delivery of police services, characterized by: 1) community engagement and partnership; 2) problem solving and prevention; and, 3) organizational change. This document highlights the experiences of Chicago, Marin County, Duluth, and London to illustrate the application of community policing to domestic violence. BWJP and its partners set out to analyze and articulate how community policing principles might intersect with the core principles of domestic violence organizing: victim safety, offender accountability, and community change.
