The purpose of this paper is to facilitate the search for a corporate strategy of policing that can deal with the principal problems now besetting urban communities: crime, fear, drugs and urban decay. The paper first explores the strengths and limitations of the corporate strategy that has guided policing for the last fifty years. It then contrasts this concept with three other concepts that have been discussed within Harvard Executive Session on Policing: strategic policing, problem solving policing and community policing.
