Community Policing recognizes voluntary participation of the local community in the maintenance of peace and security. The approach acknowledges that the police need to be responsive to the communities and their needs. This enhances joint problem identification and problem-solving while respecting the different responsibilities the police and the public have in the field of crime prevention and maintaining order.
