FR3.30.08 Exploring the Impact of Community Oriented Policing on Reports of Neighborhood Satisfaction

Many of the nation’s police departments have adopted community-oriented policing (COP) to supplement more traditional reactive models of policing. COP requires police agencies to collaborate with citizens and other community stakeholders to identify issues of concern, develop strategies to prevent crime, and support healthy neighborhoods. Prior research suggests that crime and signs of physical and neighborhood disorder (e.g., litter, noise, public intoxication, etc.) impact residents’ neighborhood satisfaction and may affect their decision to move. This project evaluates the impact of COP on residents’ reported level of neighborhood satisfaction by linking together respondent-level housing survey data and agency-level police department data. Multivariate modeling is used to assess the relationship between COP and resident evaluations of neighborhood satisfaction.
