Imagine you are the chief of police of your local community and have decided to implement a community-oriented policing program. One of the issues confronting your community is a phenomenon found in some urban communities called Stop Snitching. Through the stop snitching project, we learned that many communities, police leaders, and prosecutors have been working on the stop snitching problem, and that many of the initiatives they have undertaken
have had an impact.
The programs represent promising practices for reversing the influence of the stop snitching campaign. Resources for preventing witness intimidation and for establishing witness protection
programs available to law enforcement have helped encourage witnesses to come forward and have helped agencies to protect theirsafety.
Present your community-oriented policing program, including a specific program that addresses this phenomenon. Be very specific; you are presenting this to your department and community.
Use the Los Angeles, California area as the community.
