It takes the involvement of the whole community and police to come together, work together to make the community as safe as possible. There have been some positive changes in policing, and this strategy truly aids the comeback in fighting crime. During findings and evaluation for the CAPS program, there have been evidence that the program led to a significant decline in drug and gang problems and physical decay as well as increased satisfaction with the police (Skogan and Hartnett, 1997, pp. 194-197). CAPS program has been a success.
Demonstrate how support is provided to citizens by statutory and non-statutory public services. Statutory – The police is a statutory service that has to look after the public, by trying to improve the communities, make sure of citizens safety and serving the public. The police have to be there for us in almost any emergency situation in order to maintain control and prevent any crime.

Keeping the peace means providing a presence at known trouble hot spots for example city centres. A police officer will also investigate allegations of any offence that is put before them. They will use good operational knowledge to decipher if the allegations are genuine and if so, they will report the crime and have it investigated. The police also provide high visibility policing to major events like football matches etc in order to prevent incidents of any criminality. Many police services also set local priorities which largely depend on the needs of their particular area for example, the police service in rural may have a very different set of problems from police services in urban areas.
(2013) said that, "We cannot continue to dismiss bullying as a harmless, almost inevitable, part of growing up." "We need to change this mindset and acknowledge this as a serious problem for both the individual and the country as a whole; the effects are long-lasting and significant." According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 20 percent of U.S. students in grades 9 through 12 were bullied at some point in 2011. Bullying should be a crime, there are kids out there that are killing themselves because of what other kids are saying about that person. It's just horrible.
Police departments’ effectiveness depends on its organization. Local police are assigned to areas, also known as beats, with the responsibility of maintaining order, ensuring that the law is upheld, and providing needed assistance to citizens. If communities are going to be safe to live in, then the police department must be well organized. As we continue to experience an increase in crime, police organization becomes more and more important, as it determines the police department’s effectiveness. One of the advantages of patrolling is that it gives potential criminals the fear of being caught in the act and citizens the peace of knowing that they are being protected against crime.
