Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of community policing, technology and other factors on solving crime in local agencies with investigators. Clearance rates for the Index crimes of murder, robbery and burglary were operationalized as dependent variables. Predictor variables included six demographic agency variables, 16 investigation variables related to the investigation process, two community policing variables, and a technology (availability of crime-related records and files) variable. Logistic regression was used to examine variable interrelationships. It was found that community policing practices in agencies have significant positive main effects on murder clearance rates. Additionally, when community policing is practiced in conjunction with some investigation variables, it has significant mixed (positive and negative) interaction effects on murder and robbery clearance rates. Technology has a small but significant positive main effect on burglary clearance rates and a small but significant positive interaction effect with community policing on murder clearance rates. There was no indication of any substantive agency management initiatives designed to promote these effects. The results are discussed in the context of a conceptual framework with regard to preventing and detecting crimes, as well as solving them, especially as they pertain to terrorism and national security.
