CHPD Study of Community Oriented Policing Effectiveness
In March 2014, the Columbia Heights Police Department (CHPD) initiated a comprehensive and scientific study which was designed to measure the effectiveness of community policing efforts made by the CHPD since the philosophical change in policing practice in 2009. This study is now complete and we are excited to share the positive findings with the community. With the assistance of educators, department staff, city staff, and other important stakeholders (Columbia Heights Public Schools, other criminal justice partners, etc.), the CHPD gathered and analyzed both quantitative and qualitative data sets to reach several findings on the overall effectiveness of its community policing efforts. While the citizen survey which was a part of the overall study metrics was released in 2014, the entire study is now available in pdf format at:
The Many Degrees of Community Oriented Policing

As the department is interested in performance improvement, community collaboration, and public transparency, we invite the public to read this study and forward any comments or suggestions to the Police Department through phone calls, email, Facebook or at our various community forums.

Summary Data from a Study of Community Oriented Policing Effectiveness.
 
Paper copies are available at the Columbia Heights City Hall, the Library, and in the lobby of the Public Safety Building.
