  • A form of policing aiming to identify particular crime problems in the community and to develop the most effective strategies that can be implemented to tackle these problems. Developed by Professor Herman Goldstein from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, problem-oriented policing emphasizes crime prevention princi ples, analysis and research, thorough evaluations of the effectiveness of the implemented strategies, and the importance of partnerships with the community and other public and private organizations and agencies. When problems are identified, the police work closely with members of the community and other agencies to find the most effective solution to address the situation. When the solution is implemented, an evaluation process occurs to assess whether the strategy was constructive in addressing the problem.
