Week 5 Discussion: General Police Operations Explain a police patrolling strategy and analyze the scholarly literature and report the findings? There are many patrol strategies you can choose from this week from foot patrol, mounted patrol, aviation, vehicles, directed patrol, preventative patrol, proactive patrol, marine units, and many others. Select a type of patrol you really want to learn more about. From the first basics of foot patrol and getting out into the community to engage with the community to patrolling in vehicles, bicycles, motorcycles, and even segways, there are many options to choose from. The goal of the police department is to make the community safe for everyone. Changes in technology will allow law enforcement to change as well from using crime mapping, hot-spot policing, and even drones. Law enforcement should embrace change and technology to support the community and make the community safer.
