Look into Neighborhood Oriented Policing. I had issues with the GPD not too long ago and learned about NOP. Needless to say, the officers I have spoken with, aren't too happy with its implementation. It was also DOJ grant implemented strategy.

Look up on YESWeekly's search browser: Neighborhood Oriented Policing and some of the quotes from the new chief. He makes a reference to "predicting" crime. I have heard a lot about this trend, and the role technology will be playing in policing.

By "progressive policing", I wonder if they mean breaking the law type of policing. I think Greensboro uses the stingray device. From what I understand it collects data from unaware citizens. Violation of the 4th amendment. By the way, any department that uses it, signs a contract saying that they will not share any info about its capabilities or use.

If they use the stingray device, Tommy, I wonder if they get a warrant from a judge every time.

Community policing, or "neighborhood oriented policing", can be helpful if used as one of numerous approaches to reduce crime. But it is important to note that it is politically favored and talked up by the progressive left because it has feel-good overtones.

I very seriously doubt a warrant is issued for every use of the device.

I would throw the progressive right in there as well. Its all propaganda!

Here's a thought. You could stop wondering what "progressive policing methods" are and do a little research. Here's a recent entry on GPD's Facebook page:


The chief's discussion of his strategies is effectively a definition of the term that so troubles you.

As for response times, I presume "increase response time" was a typo. Ha ha.
