Yolanda:COPPS has been around for a period of time and has been adopted in somepolice jurisdictions throughout the nation. According to Peak, Gaines,& Glensor, “COPPS is a proactive philosophy that promotes solvingproblems that are criminal, affect our quality of life, or increase ourfear of crime, as well as other community issues. COPPS involvesidentifying, analyzing, and addressing community problems at their source”(Peak, Gaines, & Glensor, 2010).
COPPSdifferent from traditional policing, because the traditional policingoperated only by the nature of a problems that occurred (reactive) and didnot involve the response from the community and as a result, thetraditional police responded longer to calls. However, COPPS operates morefreely of the problem itself which is proactive. COPPS is more involvedwithin their community, more organizations, and consults with communityleaders in taking the right action toward a situation. COPPS respond timeto calls more quickly, and work closely within the community.
Thefour steps of S.A.R.A.:
Scanning,Analysis, Response and Assessment.
SARAcan be used in the reduction of crime by “providing officers with a logicalstep-by-step framework to identify, analyze, respond to, and elevate crime,the fear of crime, and neighborhood disorder” (Peak, Gaines, & Glensor,2010). For example, in the city of Atlanta, there was a report of incidentstoward cars being broken into on a daily basis. It was told thatthe thieves were actually smashing the windows of vehicles and snatchinganything they felt that was of value. SARA can help reduce/stop thisparticular crime by first gathering information from participants in thecommunity include the media reports, having officers monitor the hotspotslocated in area frequently, and get a good description of the perpetratorfrom members of the community as well as mapping the location of how manytimes this crime has occurred.
