Public Safety Policing
The introduction of this policing model was presented in Dr. Pastor’s then groundbreaking book: Terrorism & Public Safety Policing.
Advocating this policing model in 2009 on the heels of the War on Terror, it was obvious to many that policing must be re-oriented to address the risk of terrorism. Back then this model was a cutting-edge undertaking devised with the expectation of increased extremism and terrorism.
Following the defunding and re-imaging movement, with lawlessness conditions prevailing in many urban areas, increased extremism and terroristic activity is now nearly certain to follow. Understanding that these conditions will drive the need to innovate, the widespread implementation of Public Safety Policing is now ripe. Specifically, this model consists of three key elements:
- Order Maintenance Methods
- Surveillance Technologies & Methods
- Protective Methods
These elements were further articulated in Dr. Pastor’s new book: You Say You Want a Revolution: A Compelling & Cautionary Tale of What Lies Ahead.
Dr. Pastor is available to speak and consult on how this policing model can be realized, adopted, and refined for your circumstances.
