Community and Problem-Solving Policing 1 Community and Problem-Solving Policing Robert J. Nicol CJS/210 January 5, 2011 Dr. John Opinski Community and Problem-Solving Policing 2 As youngsters my brother and I were always into some form of mischief, nothing illegal or criminal, just two kids out to have fun. In the early 1980’s our town started its own police department, which consisted of one chief and about six officers. My brother and I became very well known to the officers because of our antics. With very little discipline within our household I had formed a drinking problem and every weekend one police officer or another was escorting me home in the early morning hours. One officer in particular had taken a liking to my brother and did not want to see him following in my shoes, so every Saturday morning he would pick up my brother and do things with him; like let him ride with him while on duty, take him fishing, camping and to local ballgames.
