You decide to visit with members of the community. A homeowner tells you that Chief Slaughters officers do a great job of patrolling her neighborhood, but shes worried about the future impact of the deteriorating apartment complex across the street. She realizes its not a police problem. The manager of a senior citizens residence tells you that there hasnt been a crime reported in their neighborhood in over a year, but the residents are afraid to go out at night. He thinks its the rumors that spread from crime reports on the television news. The business owners in the shopping center complain that customers are being driven away by kids skateboarding in the parking lot. They understand that the police have more urgent crime problems to fight. The high school principal praises the police departments stringent traffic enforcement before and after school. He wishes he could resolve the growing truancy problem as efficiently as the police handle traffic. None of the people you talk to is personally acquainted with a Greenfield police officer. It appears the Greenfield Police Department is trapped in the reform era. They rely on preventive patrolling and rapid response as their primary policing strategies and seldom interact with the community. You review their mission statement and find it emphasizes the professional model of crime fighting.
