  • PLS Title Problem-oriented policing has a modest impact on crime and disorder
  • PLS Description Problem-oriented policing (POP) focuses police work on ‘problems’ as opposed to calls or crime incidents and it requires police to proactively develop response to crime and disorder problems based on a careful analysis of contributing factors. The approach has had a tremendous impact on American policing and is now widely implemented in the US and other countries. The classic implementation of POP follows the ‘SARA’ model of problem-solving (Scanning, Analysis, Response, Assessment). This review assesses the effects of problem- oriented policing on crime and disorder based on the existing evaluation literature.
