Community-Oriented Policing (COP) policies decrease crime by building a connection between law enforcement officers and community members. This presentation explores how multiple factors play a role in the effectiveness of this law-enforcement tool. To enhance the effectiveness of the COP policies, researchers have suggested a number of strategies for improving community member’s attitude toward officers. Where the relationship between the community and law enforcement is strained, COP strategies will continue to be ineffective. Therefore, this presentation explores the strained relationships that contribute to community social disorganization. The presentation concludes that disadvantaged communities who create a hostile environment for law enforcement, find themselves with ineffective COP programs. Additionally, the presentation discusses the role of age, race, biological sex, and socio-economics on shaping the effectiveness of community-oriented policing as well.
