| Community policing has become not only a main stream of policing
internationally, but a substitute of police reform in every country as well.
This study collected empirical data of six American cities in implementing
community policing programs and found that these police bureaus made every
effort to promote citizens' quality of life. Their strategies are community
participation, problem orientation, crime prevention, and so on. Based on the
data, this study provides several suggestions for our police organizations:
decentralization, the establishment of research and development unit,
differentiation of reporting system, a proper use of civilian employees,
performance evaluation by non-government agencies.
