Proactive policing is the practice of officers initiating contacts with members of the public. These contacts range from traffic stops to “out of car experiences” in which officers engage with citizens in a non-enforcement capacity. Multiple studies demonstrate that agencies in which officers engage in pro-active policing—fear of crime decreases, trust in the police increases and clearance rates for violent crimes increases
In this two-hour webinar, Chief Harry P. Dolan (Ret.) will describe his firsthand knowledge of the effectiveness of proactive policing as a beat cop and as a major city chief.
