Chicago's Alternative
Policing Strategy
By RichardM Daley
Recently, I had the opportunity to speak before the
American Bar Association's Section of State and Local
Government Law. Normally such sessions are devoted to
discussions about issues of law that lawyers must address
to help their clients prevent or resolve disputes.
I chose to discuss with the participants a more basic
issue of law in our cities today--the operations and con-
duct of our police. More specifically, I talked about com-
munity policing.
For our citizens, the law begins in their communities.
They need to feel safe at home and on their sidewalks.
They want and expect their children to be safe at school,
and they want to be able to get to work and back without
danger. And they want their police officers to be trusted
members of their communities.
The first line of the law for our citizens is not a lawyer;
it is a police officer. That is why I have committed the
City of Chicago to a community policing strategy. The
goal of community policing is to create a real partnership
between the police and the communities they serve.
While many other cities have instituted community
policing programs, ours is a true makeover of the entire
policing system. Community policing means reinventing
the Chicago Police Department. We have not just added
police officers; we have returned officers to the communi-
The concept cannot work without citizen involvement
