Innovative Neighborhood-Oriented Policing Descriptions of Programs in Eight Cities

Overview

This 1994 report by Vera presents detailed descriptions of the eight city programs funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance's Innovative Neighborhood Oriented Policing (INOP) programs, which were intended to help develop community policing programs with the goal of reducing the demand for drugs through drug enforcement, interagency cooperation, referral to treatment and community-based prevention initiatives. The eight INOP sites were Tempe, AZ; Norfolk, VA; New York, NY; Hayward, CA; Portland, OR; Prince George's County, MD; Houston, TX; and Louisville, KY. This is volume one of a report submitted to the National Institute of Justice, volume two being "Issues in community policing: problems in the implementation of eight innovative neighborhood oriented policing programs."
