Neighbourhood policing: past, present and future

This summary of the relevant literature on neighbourhood policing was commissioned by Thames Valley Police to inform their review of the future role and function of neighbourhood policing in their force. It covers the history and development of neighbourhood policing, describes its main models, assesses its effectiveness, identifies good practice and looks at how neighbourhood policing might need to adapt in a rapidly changing world where value for money and evidence-based solutions are increasingly required.
