Many consider POP as a more analytical approach to conducting law enforcement business with a strategy to get away from a reactive, incident-driven mode to that of a preventive way of doing law enforcement business in general.
Problem-Oriented Policing: From Innovation to Mainstream contains original research and papers compiled, written, and contributed by leading scholars on police activities from around the world and focuses on implementing the problem-oriented policing concept into the mainstream of law enforcement.
