purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to community oriented
policing as a tool that is currently being used by police departments
Expected Student Outcomes:
Students will have a common understanding of community policing and how it is currently used in law enforcement. Students will be able to interview members of the community and agents of the local police departments in an effort to create a program that addresses the identified needs. Students will also be able to locate information on the World Wide Web and summarize articles found.
Students will be expected to participate in class and in group work and will be graded on their participation. Supplemental readings, oral reports, and written assignments will be required. Students are required to be prepared to discuss cases.
Students will be required to attend every class session and laboratory session, even when attendance is not taken. Students are to be prepared for class by doing the assigned readings.
Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. This includes, but is not limited to; Non constructive and/or inappropriate comments and/or behavior, arriving late or leaving early and failing to turn off audible pagers and/or cell phones.

Student Attendance and Participation:
1. Attendance and participation are required for the full benefit of the education experience. Students are expected to come to class and be prepared to join in discussion of the material. It is highly recommended that you complete and review the daily exercises at the end of each chapter.
2. Each excused or unexcused absence will result in a loss of 10 attendance points and up to the maximum of 5% (50 Points) of your final grade.
3. Class begins promptly at 5:10 p.m. every session. Failing to attend and participate in class will severely impact your grade.
4. Be prepared to express your viewpoint and defend it – allow others to express their point of view, as well. These important exchanges of ideas, that will be debated, are an important element in the learning process. If students give the appearance of not being prepared, unannounced quizzes may be given.
5. Writing assignments shall be turned in on the days assigned. Assignments must comply with the format requirements as set forth in the syllabus and as provided by the Instructor. Failure to comply with the requirements will result in the assignment being returned to the student and treated as late until the requirements are fulfilled.

Students will be graded on a multiple task class project, a paper of not less than 7 pages, a mid-term (May 1st, 2006) and a final (June 7th, 2006). The paper will be concerning a community problem. Besides links on our departmental website, use both articles and books.
The paper will be graded on 1) the organization of ideas, 2) the depth and quality of sources, 3) the quality and extent of analysis, 4) the originality of your insights on the topic under study, and 5) spelling and grammar. An “F” grade will be assigned to papers turned in late. The due date for all papers is in final week (June 7th, 2006).

Students choosing law related careers are expected to meet rigorous standards of honesty. Students are on their honor to avoid “proscribed Conduct” as defined by the Student Judicial Code (see appendix B. CWU Catalog). Violations of this section will result in a failing grade in the course in addition to possible further university sanctions.
Policy on Diversity:
University-level education is about broadening horizons and looking at academic issues from a variety of perspectives. With this in mind, the participants in this class are encouraged to bring their own life experiences and viewpoints to bear on classroom discussions and assignments. Along with the freedom to express one's own view comes the responsibility of being sensitive to race, ethnicity, age, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, martial-status, or political ideology.
