Summary

Policing within a democratic society requires the police to be constantly attentive to those issues that disrupt the peace and wellbeing of the people who live in the local settlements they serve, and attending to those needs in both a reactive and pro-active way. Since the police do not have an infinite pool of resources to draw from, police officers must prioritize, in terms of importance, the demands made upon it by the local settlement.

Hence, police officers have to know how to solve problems quickly and efficiently. The most effective way to deal with these issues is by mutual cooperation. This cooperation between the police and the local settlement groups directly influences the level of success achieved toward a common good. As this level of cooperation increases, the police and the people will begin to accept each other as equal partners.

The training covers the following areas:

  • A partnership approach between the police and the community
  • Reducing, preventing and detecting crime.
  • Quality service to be given by the police to the public
  • Attempts to address problems that are of concern to the citizens.
