Crime Fighting Through Strategic Planning

Examination of recent history and changing contexts (both internal and external) of the state, organization, program, or sub-program allows participants to assess current positions. Answering the question of what we have to work with involves consideration of strengths and weaknesses and determination of how to capitalize
on strengths.

After articulating the vision and determining goals, planners must address means of reaching their goals. This step involves articulating strategies for achieving results. A community's ability to become vigilant, empowered, prepared, and resilient depends upon the efforts/partnerships of law enforcement, governmental and non-governmental organizations and community members who are adequately trained and equipped to strategically plan to fight crime and disorder in their communities.

This course includes classroom instruction, problem-based learning strategies, and practical "hands-on" activities. topics include: Problem Solving technique and application, elements of group dynamics (including team building, leadership principles, and conflict resolution), a historical perspective on community policing etc.

We will address community responsibility, ethics, vision development, and action planning. At the end of this course all will have a clear understanding of how to address crime, the fear of crime and community disorder.

This two-day course is designed to provide law enforcement personnel, governmental and nongovernmental
organization representatives, and community members awareness-level information, as well as capacity building,
that leads to creating vigilant, empowered prepared, and resilient communities.
