THE COMMUNITY ORIENTED POLICING SERVICES (COPS) PROJECT

 

The Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) project is a cooperative effort between the Tucson Police Department, the Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology (BARA) and the Center for Applied Spatial Analysis (CASA) at the University of Arizona, and four Tucson neighborhoods. The goal of the project is to reduce non-domestic assaults in these four neighborhoods. This will be accomplished by working with neighborhood residents to gain a better understanding of the pattern of neighborhood assaults and using this knowledge to develop and implement cooperative intervention strategies.
