Read the following scenario and answer the five questions that follow using APA

demonstrate a good understanding of the material in the textbook regarding the
philosophy of and management approach to community policing.
The Greenfield Police Department’s new mission statement emphasizes a community
policing philosophy. The new chief has increased the authority and the
responsibility of sergeants to identify and solve problems affecting the quality of
life in Greenfield. You are the evening shift supervisor and have learned that the
residents of the Senior Citizens Center are reluctant to venture out after dark.
The Center is located in a low-crime neighborhood adjacent to a public park with
walking paths. Evening walks in the park used to be a popular activity for the
seniors, but no one uses the park now. The Center’s owner tells you the residents
are worried about all the crime they see on the news and read about in the paper.
They are also concerned about thefts from their cars in the parking lot. He says
rumors of criminal activity spread quickly through the Center. The owner provides
classes every month on how to avoid being a crime victim. He also installed new
security doors and cameras.
You gather the officers on your shift to discuss the situation. They tell you there
is no crime problem in the area of the Center. The crime statistics support the
officers. There has been one car window broken in the Center’s parking lot during
the last year, and a few kids have been told not to skateboard through the lot on
their way to the park. An officer remarks that the kids dress rather oddly and
sport some strange haircuts, but they’re good kids who stay out of trouble.
Officers state that they patrol the area constantly and conduct frequent traffic
enforcement on the street in front of the Center. They flash their red lights to
make sure the residents see them in the area. The officers tell you the residents
have exaggerated the problem.
