Abstract

The activities of policing and community policing may be considered fundamentally different from the processes that occur within business organisations; however, at a high-level both groups still require people, systems and processes in order to effectively carry out their functions and achieve their goals. Therefore, through the identification of community policing (CP) stakeholders, the activities, processes and information flows and the governance, training and management procedures all carried out under CP’s remit we are able to understand the current state of play within CP, how we might wish CP to be in the future and the processes that need to be put in place to get there. Using an Enterprise Architecture approach we provide an initial formal description of CP, its interdependencies, relationships, principles and guidelines in order to lay the groundwork for a fully featured CP model in Europe.
