Community policing

Description

The meeting aims to serve as a platform to discuss the concept and characteristics of community policing and review country-related examples of how the community policing concept and framework is implemented.

Summary

Community policing has been acknowledged by many OSCE documents (Ministerial Council and Permanent Council Decisions as well as by OSCE Action Plans) as an effective policing style and a tool for confidence building. Many OSCE participating States have undertaken reforms with the goal of changing the way the police forces operate - from a control function to a service oriented approach. Community policing is part of this approach. While the importance of community policing is widely recognised, exactly what is meant by it is not always clear. The concept or framework of community policing, its implementation too, also seems to vary from country to country.
