A community police officer is a law enforcement professional who is specifically assigned to build partnerships and work collaboratively with members of a particular community or neighborhood.



International Police Organization Academy (IPOA)


The International Police Organization Academy (IPOA) is a global training institute that offers over 600 courses and has 2,300 instructors providing elite training for law enforcement, military personnel, and civilians.  Its mission is to promote international standards in police and military training by facilitating sharing of best practices, programs, and expertise between academies worldwide.


Some key points about IPOA:

  • Offers curriculum development, training materials, expertise, collaboration opportunities, and research & development services to police/military academies 

  • Aims to enhance officer performance, public safety, and reduce crime rates through up-to-date training

Core Principles Of Community Policing

The core principles of community policing, such as building partnerships with communities, problem-solving, and decentralizing decision-making, are policy choices made by police departments themselves. However, some federal initiatives and consent decrees have provided funding, resources, and mandates that indirectly promote community policing practices:

Local policies, general orders, union contracts and civilian oversight bodies like the Dallas Community Police Oversight Board provide governance over community policing programs. 

 Community Police Officers (CPOs)

(CPOs) are uniformed officers employed by local councils to tackle environmental crime and anti-social behavior in public spaces. Their key responsibilities include:

  • Conducting proactive patrols and inspections to deter anti-social behavior and environmental offenses Issuing fixed penalty notices for offenses like littering, graffiti, fly-posting, and breaching Public Space Protection Orders Investigating reports of anti-social behaviors, noise complaints, and environmental crimes in parks, open spaces, and town centers.

  • Enforcing laws related to waste disposal, dog control, alcohol consumption in public areas, and unlawful encampments.

  • Providing crime prevention advice and supporting multi-agency operations to address recurring issues.

  • CPOs are granted certain powers under the Anti-social Behavior, Crime and Policing Act 2014, including the ability to issue Community Protection Notices (CPNs) to individuals or businesses whose unreasonable conduct is having a detrimental effect on the local community's quality of life.

  • CPNs can require the recipient to stop certain actions or take steps to address the issue, with failure to comply being an offense.

  • In summary, community protection officers are local authority enforcement officers focused on maintaining safe and clean public environments by tackling nuisance behavior and low-level environmental offenses through patrols, investigations, and issuing penalties.

                    Community Police Officers

The goal is for the community police officer to become a known, trusted, and accessible resource deeply embedded in the neighborhood they serve. Rather than just responding to calls for service, they take a proactive, collaborative approach to improve public safety and quality of life issues. For example, the Dallas Police Department has a Community Engagement Unit with teams of officers dedicated to targeted enforcement, investigations, and acting as liaisons to build relationships with residents and businesses in each area of the city. 

Providing crime prevention advice and supporting multi-agency operations to address recurring issues CPOs are granted certain powers under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, including the ability to issue Community Protection Notices (CPNs) to individuals or businesses whose unreasonable conduct is having a detrimental effect on the local community's quality of life.

The legal governing  for community policing officers  basis stems from the general authority given to police departments to implement community-based policing strategies, often supported by federal funding programs and resources. There are no specific laws that explicitly govern or mandate the use of community police officers. Community policing is a philosophy and organizational strategy adopted by law enforcement agencies, rather than dictated by laws.




Federal initiatives, programs, and bills that support     or promote community policing strategies:

  1. The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 established the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) within the U.S. Department of Justice to provide grants and technical assistance for advancing community policing nationwide. 

  • The Department of Justice's Consent Decrees have sometimes required certain police departments to adopt community policing strategies as part of reform efforts. 

  • Executive Order 13929 in 2020 required law enforcement agencies to meet certain standards involving use of force policies to receive federal funding, indirectly promoting community policing principles. 

  • S. 994 (Peters, D-MI), the "Strong Communities Act," would establish a grant program to help build on the community-policing model. 

  • S. 2313 (Coons, D-DE), another "Strong Communities Act," would establish a grant program for local agencies to assist in recruiting officers from their own communities. 

  • S. 1530 (Graham, R-SC), the "COPS on the Beat Grant Program Parity Act," would allow underserved and rural communities greater flexibility to use COPS grants.
