The Community Patrol Officer Program Community-oriented policing in the New York City Police Department: progress report no. 2


Vera's second interim progress report on the Community Patrol Officer Program (CPOP) from May 1986 details the expansion of the Program from a single (72nd) precinct experiment to 21 of the City's 75 precincts. The report assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the CPOP concept and of its institutionalization. This includes an examination of each CPOP unit's operating statistics, interviews with each unit's command and supervisory personnel, team meetings with the CPOs in each precinct, and interviews with the District Manager of each Community Planning Board in which a CPOP unit is located.
