The applicant’s plan should address improving public safety through community oriented strategies such as community courts; community prosecution; community corrections; and community policing, including organizational strategies which reorient the mission and activities of law enforcement towards the community policing philosophy and which support the systematic use of partnerships and problem-solving techniques, to address conditions that give rise to public safety issues of crime, social disorder, and fear of crime.
