Crank, John P. et al.
Advances in police theory and practice series
Crank (criminology and criminal justice, U. of Nebraska at Omaha) et al. describe an approach to policing that focuses on the deployment of line officers based on the location of serious crime. They follow a counterinsurgency approach to link mission to strategic outcomes and advocate for the use of contemporary crime mapping processes to do so. They explain the theory of mission-based policing; current problems with policing; the five central principles of their approach (focus, effectiveness, deployment, integrity, and mission's end); and the counterinsurgency concept of logical lines of operation, including planning, security, establishing and restoring essential services, and rebuilding. They then present an example department in the city of Omaha using this type of policing.
