Problem-Oriented Policing: Successful Case Studies is the first systematic and rigorous collection of effective problem-oriented policing projects. It includes more than twenty case studies from among the thousands of projects submitted for the Herman Goldstein Award for Excellence in Problem-Oriented Policing. The volume describes in detail the case studies and explains the wider significance of each for effective, efficient, and equitable policing. This book explores a wide range of problems that fall under five general categories: gang violence; violence against women; vulnerable people; disorderly places; and theft, robbery, and burglary. The case studies tell stories of how police, in collaboration with others, successfully tackled real-world policing problems fairly and effectively. The authors have also drawn out of the case studies the cross-cutting themes and issues they illustrate. The authors prove that the concept can work, bring to life the context in which police and communities addressed these vexing problems, and, ideally, will inspire future problem-oriented police work that builds on these reported successes. Written in a clear and direct style, this book will appeal to students and scholars of policing, criminology, and social studies; police practitioners and crime analysts; and all those who are interested in learning more about the reality of police problem-solving.

'Mike Scott and Ron Clarke have made an important contribution to the literature on problem-oriented policing by bringing together successful case studies and making them available to the field. These case studies are an excellent way to share successful ideas with police officers who are always looking for solutions to the persistent problems they encounter in their work. They also reinforce a thoughtful process for identifying, understanding and responding to problems.' Darrel W. Stephens, chief of police (Ret.), Charlotte-Mecklenburg (North Carolina), St. Petersburg (Florida) and Newport News (Virginia), and former executive director, Police Executive Research Forum and Major Cities Chiefs Association 'This book is an indispensable resource from masters of the field, showing generations of police yet to come how they can do problem-oriented policing with insight, imagination and precision.' Lawrence Sherman, professor of criminology, University of Cambridge 'Sir Robert Peel fathered the first professional police force in 1829, stressing that "the basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder." This book provides inspirational worked examples of how to do that. Sir Robert would have loved it.' Ken Pease, professor of policing, University of Derby 'This book will prove invaluable because Ron, Mike and the authors of the case studies have re-visited the initiatives, sometimes decades later. This is the acid test of problem orientation. Some chapters reveal resilient and resounding results, others more ephemeral success. However, the analysis and insights of success or ultimate failure allow the reader to learn and hopefully deliver a policing service focused on prevention and wisdom. Michael Barton, chief constable (Ret.), Durham Constabulary and visiting professor, Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science, University College London
