COMMUNITY ORIENTED POLICING PROGRAM

Contingent Security Services, Ltd. created and developed a customized police model to reduce crime by use of customized programs, while working for the Bensenville Police Department, on the western side of Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

This unique policing program incorporates best practices from successful programs from around the world.

DO YOU WANT TO DROP CRIME IN EXCESS OF 70% AND IN SOME TROUBLE AREAS OVER 90% AND HAVE A GANG FREE COMMUNITY? 

IF THE ANSWER IS YES, WE CAN HELP YOU. 

Programs reduce crime and position the police department to take advantage of intelligence obtained with networks in the community who feed information that becomes intelligence after analysis.

Intelligence-led Policing is a community policing program that provides police forces the ability to conduct policing activities by eliciting considerable cooperation and collaboration from the entire community.

Director Joel Vargas developed a program while working with the Bensenville Police Department where he accumulated considerable data and performed research. The research tested crime prevention and community relations with the following focus:

1. Crime Prevention

2. Outreach

3. Inclusion

The discoveries since 2010 when the program was launched have been extraordinary. In the first year of deployment the drop was 50% in crime and turned a reactive police response into a proactive police response by having the community direct police activities. Consistent 6 of 10 calls (60% of the time) people direct police to crime prevention related situations. This is a remarkable participation from the community.

Currently we have 4 year research that was published on July 21, 2017. CLICK HERE FOR A COPY.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY ASKED TO DO?

The program asks the community to do three things:

  • Observe

  • Hear

  • Report

Unlike any other program, people become valuable members of the the crime prevention programs and partners with the police department.

It is community centric and not police centric. The balance produces great results that can be analyzed and measured. 

Creating a “Proactive” police department takes a lot more than a simple crime prevention approach. Maximizing cooperation and collaboration from the community takes a well-trained force and a well designed program. Here are some insights in 2013 in Bensenville:

Community Policing Consulting.

In the USA some police forces are facing issues with social and community changes. Many times these communities are challenged because of police practices. In a few cases, the police department may be accused of having tendencies to discriminate against minorities. These charges may be civil rights violations, civil litigation and in some cases criminal charges.

“Our program is built on building a community where strong cooperation and collaboration takes place, by including three areas: Outreach, Crime Prevention, and Inclusion” according to Joel Vargas, Director of Operations.

If the government needs to build trust with the community, our program is built with that foundation in mind. In Bensenville the testing and research that was performed since 2010, our program has the metrics to back the program.

Intelligence Led-Policing, Community Policing, and other programs have some good ideas that can be customized to better serve the client. No town is too small and no client can be too large. We can assemble the right team for the job from retired innovators in crime prevention coupled with professionals with a strong track-record.

In other cases, local municipalities hire our company to implement customized programs to address cultural and ethnic changes and to better serve the community. 

There are two kinds of police forces:
