Problem Oriented Policing is a strategy that was developed in 1979 by Herman Goldstein, a UW Madison professor and expanded upon recently by Jerry Ratcliffe, a former British police officer and current professor. This strategy is effective for reducing crime and other issues in places that are at an elevated risk. This is a strategy that involves stakeholders to work with law enforcement with addressing the root cause of some of law enforcement’s calls for service. This can also be effective for improving relations with the community.
This 8 hour course takes Professor Goldstein and Ratcliffe’s theories and put them into perspective in today’s policing world.
