Toward A New Professionalism in PolicingeBook - 2011
"In the 1980s, community policing replaced the traditional crime-fighting model of policing, often referred to as 'professional policing.' Community policing was an improvement over the previous policing paradigm (one that the authors argue was more truly professional than the command-and-control model that it replaced) and represented a great change in how police officers did their jobs. The authors argue that it is now time for a new model for the 21st century, one that they call a 'New Professionalism.' Their framework rests on increased accountability for police in both their effectiveness and their conduct; greater legitimacy in the eyes of the citizenry; continuous innovation in tactics and strategies for interacting with offenders, victims, and the general public; and national coherence through the development of national norms and protocols for policing"--Publisher website.
