Community Policing Agreement
Problem-solving in Jones City needs to have the Police and Community form a better partnership. All members of the Jones Community have a vested interest in improving the quality of life and making Jones City a safer place to live. The following plan will bring the Officers and the Community closer together to detour crime in our community.
- Set up meetings to get citizens involved and educate them on what is going on in the neighborhoods.
- Identify problems and what needs to be accomplished from meetings. These should be measurable outcomes or goals that police and citizens can look at.
- It is important to have in writing who will be responsible for each task and a timeline if any should be in place. At this, we can look into available resources in helping, such as neighborhood watch programs and community-wide light up the night program.
- The next step would be to make sure a follow-up mechanism is in place to assess what was accomplished. There might be problems that are going to be continuous and need to be monitored throughout the year.
