Abstract

This document is one part of a nine-part compendium, with all sections accessible through the main table of contents. Jails are communities in and of themselves, and yet previously community policing and procedural justice have not been applied in jail settings. Yet jails have been characterized as the missing piece in the community-oriented policing paradigm. Community-oriented policing is as important in jails as it is in towns, cities, and counties; this compendium of community policing and procedural justice practices and programs, developed by the National Policing Institute and the National Sheriffs’ Association, features results of a national survey, a summary of research, and promising practices as well as eight successful programs operated by seven sheriffs’ departments that will be illuminating for other agencies nationwide.
