Broken Windows
The Broken Windows Theory, by James Q. Wilson and George L. Kelling, basically states that if an area looks good, it sends a message that someone cares and crime tends to decrease. Should one window get broken and go un-repaired, other windows will probably get broken.

CPTED
Another tool is Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design or CPTED. This program uses landscaping, lighting, and window placement to show that areas are monitored and have ownership.

SARA Model
Since Community Policing addresses the root of problems, rather than the symptoms, the SARA Model is used. SARA is an acronym for:

  • Scanning: Information is gathered
  • Analysis: The information is analyzed
  • Response: A plan is made to address the root issues
  • Analysis: Was the response successful?

If the Analysis shows that the plan was successful, the issue can be closed-out as a success. If not, a new SARA plan can be initiated until the issue has been resolved.
