Writing Assignment 1: Thesis Statement
Thesis statement
Community policing is better than traditional policing because it is better placed to
reduce crime rates due to positive interaction, partnerships, and problem-solving.
Positive interaction
This point will show that community policing, unlike traditional policing, emphasizes the
need for officers to offset the sources of negative contact such as tickets, stops for suspicion, and
orders to desist. The positive interaction makes the police know much more about people and
their conditions. This increased knowledge deters potential crime.
Partnerships
This point will show that community policing, unlike traditional policing, emphasizes
active partnerships between the police and other stakeholders. These parties work together to
establish and solve challenges or problems. Thus, this point will cover the notion that through
partnerships, offenders and likely criminals are identified and provided with the necessary
intervention to abandon their delinquent trends.
Problem-solving
This point will cover the idea that while traditional policing underscores the incidentoriented approach, community policing seeks a problem-solving orientation. Thus, the police
work with stakeholders to identify, for example, causes of crimes and then work to challenge
them.
