The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Community Oriented Policing in Minneapolis.

Craig, William J.

Community Oriented Policing (COP) gets officers involved in problem solving and understanding neighborhood issues--something beyond simply responding to calls for help. In 1994 CURA and the Minneapolis Police Department surveyed citizens before and after a pilot COP project was initiated in the Fifth Precinct. Citizen views of the professionalism of the department improved slightly during the two years. Many more of those who dealt directly with a police employee felt that their situation was resolved well. Those issues that had been considered large problems two years before had received attention in the interim, and were seen to be less of a problem in the second survey.
