I had few people telling me that Traditional policing and community policing are the same. I been doing research on that subject and could not find any helpful answer on that. Are they the same or what is the different between community policing and traditional policing?

Traditional policing is just that Patrol and Service.  Community Oriented Policing is that an individual or a team of Officers Patrol a certain area making numerous public contacst with the neighborhoods residents and store owners.  Paying close attention to Quality of Life conditions.  Becomming involved in day to day community activites, communit councils and neighborhood leaders.  Being a proactive insted of a reactive force.
