Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $316,125)
The applicant proposes to examine the impact of different policing strategies (targeted patrol v. community policing) in hot spots on citizen perceptions of the police. The proposed study will take place in a relatively small jurisdiction, the Urbana (IL) Police Department. The study will also examine whether there are any mediating and moderating mechanisms behind the changes in citizen perceptions of police within the treatment hot spots. The purpose of the proposed project is to implement a police practice found effective in reducing crime while improving police-community relations and police legitimacy in a mid-sized city. More specifically, the goal is to enact hot spots policing in areas of high reported crime while both minimizing negative collateral consequences and realizing positive collateral consequences. During the first phase of this project the applicant was to demonstrate the ability to create a crime analysis unit including the abilities to use and access data and software. Upon demonstrating these abilities the awardee is to begin the second phase, the implementation/research phase.
