Check Out the COPS Office Report on the State of Policing in the United States

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) recently released the report The State of Policing in the United States, Volume 1. The report identifies the key law enforcement issues of 2015, community policing approaches and other strategies that police used to engage with their communities and enhance public safety, and the impact of events and policies on law enforcement officers and their work.

This report was developed following a recommendation from the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing’s final report. It is the first in a series that will identify contemporary issues in the field and provide discussion and examples of community policing programs that have shown positive results.
