Case Study: Fort Worth, Texas
Fort Worth’s initiative includes several key features: decentralized Neighborhood Policing
Districts; a special Neighborhood Police Officer in every beat whose time is dedicated to
addressing the “root causes” of neighborhood problems and to working with community
residents; opportunities for citizen participation in anti-crime surveillance through a popular
Citizen’s-on-Patrol program; opportunities for citizen input into neighborhood problem-
solving through Community Advisory Committees; and, unique social service programs that
could serve as models for other cities.

Case Study: Seattle, Washington
In Seattle, the police department— with considerable public input—coordinated the
development of an overall program strategy and engaged other organizations to implement
pieces of the Comprehensive Communities Program. The consortium involved both city
agencies and community-based organizations. They received funding for a broad range of
projects that meshed easily with the established programs and organizational structures.
Police used their share of CCP funds to support a training program that featured the
problem oriented strategies they planned to adopt, and to launch a new citizen advisory
group. A large percentage of the city’s CCP funds were committed to partner agencies with
whom the police have an expanding relationship. These funds extended the scope of
existing services to support one-time projects and to build organizational infrastructure. Both
the police and their partner agencies strove to develop CCP projects that would be
sustainable within existing resource constraints, or could be terminated without disruption.
