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 (Urbana, IL) in the Urbana 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.

This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law,“ and complies with Part 200, Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR, 200.210 (a) (14). CA/NCF
