Community Policing Philosophy
As URI moves into a new era of policing intended to provide a safer community for all, we also commit to working toward a philosophy of policing that embraces the approach often referred to as community policing. Community policing is typically described as the entire community, including police officers, recognizing that they share important community values, beliefs and goals. This implies that officers are confident of community support for their decisions and actions; and citizens are confident that officers are addressing the public safety issues that concern the community.
Let us all commit to continuing this discussion going forward.
