The challenges of modern policing call for police agencies to continue building and maintaining trust and legitimacy with the communities they serve. Community members are not merely the recipients of police services, they are essential partners in maintaining public safety. By embracing approaches that recognize the voices and roles of community members, police agencies can prioritize effective community engagement. Community-police engagement is a guiding principle for police agencies that emphasizes working with community members to identify problems and co-produce tangible solutions.
