The police and community must work together to prevent crime. The police cannot do this alone, as it takes a combined effort to create a safer community. When the police and community come together, each can share their unique perspectives, knowledge and resources to combat crime. The police can provide training, education, and resources that can help the community more effectively prevent crime. The community can provide information to the police that can help them better understand the people and areas they patrol. Working together is essential in order to create a safe and secure environment for everyone.
